Manganese also assists with the metabolism of cholesterol, amino acids and carbohydrates.

Reared under warm sunlight, in rich organic soil, 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 stage the plant has assimilated a great deal of nutrients from the soil to help push it into adulthood. Harvesting during this period guarantees a magnified amount of beneficial compounds in the plant. The young Barley Grass 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 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.
