Organic Barleygrass Powder

Organic Barleygrass Powder

Here are our Barley grass products, including our Organic freeze dried Barley grass powder. At Indigo Herbs we can assure you that this product has been freeze dried to ensure the optimum phyto-nutrient content of the young Barley grass shoots remain intact.

Barley grass has a long history of use for its beneficial nutritional properties. It has been cultivated for thousands of years with cultural references to its importance in the Bible as well as evidence suggesting that the ancient Egyptians used both the grain and the young shoots in their diet.

The ingesting of the very young Barley grass shoots didn’t become popular in modern day society until the 1970’s when Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara was conducting research on about 150 different plants. During his research to create a diet which imparted all the sustenance the body needs, Dr. Hagiwara started eating young Barley grass shoots to understand their potential. Dr. Hagiwara concluded after investigation and testing Barley grass shoots on himself that they were one of the most nutritionally balanced foods in nature.

The popularity of using young Barley grass shoots for its concentrated nutrients has increased over the past few decades allowing Indigo Herbs to bring you this pure unadulterated organic product. Grown away from populated areas, without chemical fertilizers and using only the finest organic farming methods you’ll find that our Organic Barley grass Powder is of the highest quality imparting its vitalizing properties to your diet.

Why take this? Barley grass powder is a daily food supplement that provides a dense form of nutrients. This superfood is packed with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and chlorophyll. Much of these nutrients are densely packed in the young fresh shoots of this plant.

To add to this Barley grass powder is easily digestible and can be fully assimilated by the digestive system, as it is a nutrient rich food rather than supplement. Barley grass powder is high in Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Calcium, Iron and Dietary Fibre. What's more, this lovely green powder is low in Fat, low in Sugar and high in Protein.

Like many plants, Barley grass powder is known for its Chlorophyll content. This Chlorophyll is thought to have an alkalising effect on the body. Most processed foods consumed in the western diet are thought to create a state of acidosis in the body, and this may be one of the underlying causes to many modern diseases. The effects of the highly processed foods eaten are certainly coming under greater scrutiny. Many people are addressing this issue by consuming foods that are rich in chlorophyll, to counter-balance, promote wellbeing and act as a springboard for better health.

Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.

Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal. Think about what you can replace in your daily diet with Superfoods. For full instructions go to our How to use Superfoods page.

Organic Barley grass Powder can be mixed with water to make a delicious Barley grass juice. You can also mix this powder with anything you’d like, be it smoothies, yoghurts, porridge or juice. You can simply sprinkle it on food; it is a refreshing addition and does not have an overpowering taste when used in smaller amounts.

Daily serving:
Use from ½ to 4 teaspoons daily. Indigo Herbs suggests a gradual increment of Organic Barley grass Powder daily to negate any symptoms of detoxification.

From the pristine pastures of Northern China our Organic Barley grass is produced under stringent organic standards. Reared under warm sunlight, in rich organic soil and fed water that has been sourced from deep in the earth; these Barley grass plants were harvested carefully by hand at the tender age of 4-5 months just as they enter the ‘jointing’ phase of their lives. Jointing typically means that the Barley grass starts to stretch and transform into an adult plant. At this transformative stage the plant will have assimilated a great deal of nutrients and minerals from the soil to help push it into adulthood. Harvesting at this time guarantees a magnified amount of beneficial compounds in the plant which are then ready for a rigorous selection process. Only the very best specimens are used to be quick dried and then powdered using a freezing air crushing method. It takes less than an hour for the Barley grass plants to be cut and then made into powder form ensuring the most important constituents are preserved in the end product.

Barley grass should be introduced gradually to enable the body to get used to any detoxification reaction, if introduced into the diet at higher levels too suddenly symptoms may occur. Detoxification symptoms can be varied but may include: headaches, fatigue, diarrhea, colds and flu, and skin outbreaks.
