It is thought that our typical diet needs to be more alkalising, which requires an increased intake of fruit and vegetables, especially green varieties such as barley grass. Barley grass may help you to shift from an acid state to an alkaline state which can result in improved wellness. Barley grass is a nutritious food that is best known for its alkalising and antioxidant nutritional properties. It is made from young nutrient dense shoots of barley, which are harvested above the ground ensuring that none of the grain is present. Since the allergenic protein gluten is only present in the barley grain, barley grass is gluten free. As well as the antioxidants that barley grass contains it is also a rich source of chlorophyll and a wide range of vitamins, mineral and amino acids. NUTRITIONAL PROPERTIES Barley grass contains every vitamin except vitamin D, most minerals (especially calcium) and all essential and non-essential amino acids all available in their natural easily absorbable forms. Nineteen amino acids are found in barley grass including all eight of the essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are essential for continual cell building, and regeneration, as well as energy production, immune function and detoxification. Barley grass is actually about 26% protein, which is approximately the same amount of protein found in the same quantity of lean beef.
