    BARLEY DESCRIPTION

    BARLEY GRASS CEREAL

    Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is also known as Barley grass, Barley Malt, Pearl Barley, and Scotch Barley.

    Barley was the first cereal to be domesticated in the Middle East and was probably the most important of the early cereals. Barley grass is one of the only green grasses that can be used to supply complete nutritional support for all ages. Since ancient times, Barley grass has been used for food and medicinal purposes. The Roman gladiators ate it for strength and stamina. References by agronomists show cultivation of this cereal as early as 7000 BC. The ritual significance of Barley in ancient Greece dates back to the earliest stages of the Eleusinian Mysteries (sacred rituals that were the most important of the religious festivals in ancient Greece). The Preparatory kykeon or mixed drink of the initiates was prepared from Barley and herbs. It was referred in the Homeric hymn to Demeter, who was also called "Barley-mother". Tibetan barley has been the only major staple food in Tibet for centuries. It is believed that Columbus brought it to the Americas in 1493. Barley is now grown in Europe and regions near the Sahara and the high plateau of Tibet. The world’s largest producers are the Soviet Union, Germany, China and the United States.

    Barley grass is also known as Hordeum vulgare, green grass, and mai ya in chinese markets. The term mai ya could refer to either barley or wheat grass, but barley is preferred to wheat in traditional Chinese medicine. Gu ya, or rice shoots, are eaten as a food rather than taken as a medicine. Barley grass has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for at least 1800 years. Barley grass is grown by soaking the seeds in clean water until they sprout and grow shoots approximately 2 inches (5 cm) long. Barley grass contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll, and can absorb nutrients from the soil. Green Barley leaf juice contains over 10 times the calcium in cow's milk, nearly 5 times the iron in spinach, 7 times the vitamin C in oranges, and has 80 mg of vitamin B-12 per hundred grams.

    Barley seeds also contain glucan, a fiber also found in bran, which has been reported to reduce cholesterol levels. One Chinese study reported that Barley grass was beneficial in lowering cholesterol levels in patients with type II diabetes. The report stated this was to be caused by the plant’s antioxidant abilities. Barley root contains the alkaloid hordenine that stimulates peripheral blood circulation and can be used as a bronchodilator for bronchitis. Studies suggest that Barley bran may be effective in protecting against the risk of cancer as well. It is effective as an anti-inflammatory, and can help treat stomach, duodenal and colon disorders, and pancreatitis. Barley grass is also an excellent food source for vegetarians.

    Barley grass is an extraordinarily rich source of many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, although it does not, as sometimes claimed, contain absolutely all the nutrients needed for human health. The dried shoot is approximately 4 percent glutamic acid (needed for recharging antioxidants), 4 percent methionine (needed for the production of natural SAM-e), 3 percent vitamin C, 1 percent valine, and 1 percent calcium. A single tablespoon contains a day's supply of beta-carotene, betaine, biotin, boron, copper, iron, lutein, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin, and thiamine. It also contains nutritionally significant amounts of alpha-linoleic acid, oryzanol, potassium, selenium, zinc, and the tocopherols that make up vitamin E. The medicinal action of the dried shoot is due to its content of hordenine, not to be confused with a plant chemical with a similar name that is implicated in celiac disease.

    Barley grass supplements can be taken everyday to give your body the vitamins and nutrients it needs. For treating specific conditions it is best to read and follow product label directions. The dried unjointed leaf is used for supplements. In traditional Chinese medicine, the barley grass may be "massed" or fermented before drying.


    barley grass and juice


    BARLEY GRAIN & GRASS LEAVES

    Grain, left when barley hull is removed. The young green grass leaves and shoots can be juiced for liquid green drinks. Extracts are made from the green leaves and dried powder is made from juice.

    Barley is a member of the grass family. It is self-pollinating, diploid species with 14 chromosomes. The genome of barley was sequenced in 2012 and is composed of seven pairs of nuclear chromosomes and one mitochondrial ad one chloroplastic chromosome with a total fo 5000 Mbp.

    The wild ancestor of domesticated barley, Hordeum vulgare (subspecies spontaneum) is abundant in grasslands and woodlands throughout the fertile crescent are of western Asia and northeast Africa, and is abundant in disturbed habitates, roadsides and orchards. Outside this region, the wild barley is less common and is usually found in disturbed habitats. However in a study of genome-wide diversity markers, Tibet was found to be an additonal center of domestication of cultivated barley. Barley is a widely adaptable crop. It is currently popular in temperate areas where it is grown as a summer crop and tropical areas where it is sown as a winter crop. Its germination time is one to three days. Barley grows under cool conditions, but is not particularly winter hardy. Barley is more tolerant of soil salinity than wheat, which might explain the increase of barley cultivation in Mesopotamia from the second millennium BC onwards. Barley is not as cold tolerant as the winter wheats (Triticum aestivum), fall rye (Secale cereale) or winter triticale (x Triticosecale Wittm. ex A. Camus.), but may be sown as a winter crop in warmer areas of Australia and Great Britain. Barley has a short growing season and is also relatively drought tolerant.

    Wild barley has a brittle spike, upon maturity. The spikelets separate, facilitating seed dispersal. Domesticated barley has nonshattering spikes, making it much easier to harvest the mature ears. The nonshattering condition is caused by a mutation of one of two tightly linked genes known as Bt-1 and Bt-2. Many cultivars possess both mutations. The nonshattering condition is recessive, so varities of barley that exhibit this condition are homozygous for the mutant allele.

    Spikelets are arranged in triplets which alternate along the rachis. In wild barley (and other Old World species of Hordeum), only the central spikelet is fertile, while the other two are reduced. This condition is retained in certain cultivars known as two-row barleys. A pair of mutations (one dominant, the other recessive) result in fertile lateral spikelets to produce six-row barleys. Recent genetic studies have revealed a mutation in one gene, vrs1, is responsible for the transition from two-row to six-row barley. Two-row barley has a lower protein content than six-row barley, thus more fermentable sugar content. High protein barley is best suited for animal feed. Malting barley is usually lower protein ('low grain nitrogen', usually produced without a late fertilizer application) which shows more uniform germination, needs shorter steeping, and has less protein in the extract that can make beer cloudy. Two-row barley is traditionally used in English ale-style beers. Six-row barley is common in some American lager style beers, especially when adjuncts such as corn and rice are used, whereas two-row malted summer barley is preferred for traditional German beers.

    Hulless or "naked" barley (Hordeum vulgare L. var. nudum Hook. f.) is a form of domesticated barley with an easier-to-remove hull. Naked barley is an ancient food crop, but a new industry has developed around uses of selected hulless barley to increase the digestible energy of the grain, especially for swine and poultry. Hulless barley has been investigated for several potential new applications as whole grain, and for its value-added products. These include bran and flour for multiple food applications.

    In traditional classifications of barley, these morphological differences have led to different forms of barley being classified as different species. Under these classifications, two-rowed barley with shattering spikes (wild barley) is classified as Hordeum spontaneum K. Koch. Two-rowed barley with nonshattering spikes is classified as H. distichum L., six-row barley with nonshattering spikes as H. vulgare L. (or H. hexastichum L.), and six-row with shattering spikes as H. agriocrithon Aberg. Because these differences were driven by single-gene mutations, coupled with cytological and molecular evidence, most recent classifications treat these forms as a single species, H. vulgare L.





    BARLEY GRASS USES & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    BARLEY GRAIN USES

    Barley is considered to be the first cereal grain cultivated by humans. Its medicinal and food use dates back to 7000 BC. Crop reports on barley date back to 2440 BC, and the Chinese were cultivating barley circa 2000 BC. Since biblical times, ancient Asian and Middle Eastern cultures reportedly included young wheat and barley grass plants in their diets. Historically, the plant species was used in the treatment of skin, liver, blood, and GI disorders. Ancient Greeks used the mucilage derived from the cereal to treat GI inflammations. Gladiators ate barley for strength and stamina. The Roman physician Pliny used barley as part of a ritualized cure for boils.

    Barley is a very hardy plant and can be grown under a greater variety of climatic conditions than any other grain, and a polar variety is grown within the Arctic Circle in Europe. It is a widely cultivated grain used as a food and in the brewing process. Important uses include as animal fodder, as a source of fermentable material for beer and certain distilled beverages, and as a component of various health foods. It is an additive for human and animal cereal foods. It is used in soups and stews, and in barley bread of various cultures. It also makes a flavorful flour for use in baking breads and muffins. Barley grains are commonly made into malt in a traditional and ancient method of preparation. In a 2007 ranking of cereal crops in the world, barley was fourth both in terms of quantity produced (136 million tons) and in are of cultivation (566,000 square kilometers).

    ALGICIDE: Barley straw, in England, is placed in mesh bags and floated in fish ponds or water gardens to help reduce algal growth without harming pond plants and animals. Barley straw has not been approved by the EPA for use as a pesticide and its effectiveness as an algicide in ponds has produced mixed results during university testing in the US and the UK.

    ANIMAL FEED: Half of the United States' barley production is used as livestock feed. Barley is an important feed grain in many areas of the world not typically suited for maize production, especially in northern climates - for example, northern and eastern Europe. Barley is the principal feed grain in Canada, Europe, and in the northern United States. A finishing diet of barley is one of the defining characteristics of western Canadian beef used in marketing campaigns.

    BEVERAGES - ALCOHOLIC: A large part (about 25 percent) of the remainder is used for malting, for which barley is the best-suited grain. It is a key ingredient in beer and whisky production. Two-row barley is traditionally used in German and English beers. Six-row barley was traditionally used in US beers, but both varieties are in common usage now. Distilled from green beer, whisky has been made primarily from barley in Ireland and Scotland, while other countries have used more diverse sources of alcohol, such as the more common corn, rye and wheat in the USA. In the US, a grain type may be identified on a whisky label if that type of grain constitutes 51 percent or more of the ingredients and certain other conditions are satisfied.

    Barley wine is a style of strong beer from the English brewing tradition. Another alcoholic drink known by the same name, enjoyed in the 18th century, was prepared by boiling barley in water, then mixing the barley water with white wine and other ingredients, such as borage, lemon and sugar. In the 19th century, a different barley wine was made prepared from recipes of ancient Greek origin.

    BEVERAGES - NONALCOHOLIC: Nonalcoholic drinks such as barley water and barley tea (called mugicha in Japan) have been made by boiling barley in water. In Italy, barley is also sometimes used as coffee substitute, caffe d'orzo (coffee of barley). This drink is obtained from ground, roasted barley and it is prepared as an espresso (it can be prepared using percolators, filter machines or cafetieres). It became widely used during the Fascist period and the war, as Italy was affected by embargo and struggled to import coffee. It was also a cheaper option for poor families (often grown and roasted at home) in the period. Afterwards, it was promoted and sold as a coffee substitute for children. Nowadays, it is experiencing a revival and it can be considered some Italians' favorite alternative to coffee when, for health reasons, caffeine drinks are not recommended.

    FOOD: Barley contains eight essential amino acids. According to a 2006 study, eating whole-grain barley can regulate blood sugar (i.e. reduce blood glucose response to a meal) for up to 10 hours after consumption compared to white or even whole-grain wheat, which have similar glycemic indices. The effect was attributed to colonic fermentation of indigestible carbohydrates.

    Hulled barley (or covered barley) is eaten after removing the inedible, fibrous, outer hull. Once removed, it is called dehulled barley (or pot barley or scotch barley). Considered a whole grain, dehulled barley still has its bran and germ, making it a nutritious and popular health food. Pearl barley (or pearled barley) is dehulled barley which has been steam processed further to remove the bran. It may be polished, a process known as "pearling". Dehulled or pearl barley may be processed into a variety of barley products, including flour, flakes similar to oatmeal, and grits.

    Barley meal, a wholemeal barley flour lighter than wheat meal but darker in color, is used in porridge and gruel in Scotland. Barley meal gruel is known as sawiq in the Arab world. With a long history of cultivation in the Middle East, barley is used in a wide range of traditional Arabic, Assyrian, Israelite, Kurdish, and Persian foodstuffs including kashkak, kashk and murri. Barley soup is traditionally eaten during Ramadan in Saudi Arabia. Cholent or hamin (in Hebrew) is a traditional Jewish stew often eaten on Sabbath, in a variety of recipes by both Mizrachi and Ashkenazi Jews, with barley cited throughout the Hebrew Bible in multiple references. In Eastern and Central Europe, barley is also used in soups and stews such as ricet. In Africa, where it is a traditional food plant, it has the potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable landcare. The six-row variety bere is cultivated in Orkney, Shetland, Caithness and the Western Isles in the Scottish Highlands and islands. The grain is used to make beremeal, used locally in bread, biscuits, and the traditional beremeal bannock. Like wheat and rye, barley contains gluten, which makes it an unsuitable grain for consumption by those with celiac disease.


    BARLEY GRASS HEALTH BENEFITS & NUTRITION

    Barley grass is consumed in juice form. Like wheatgrass juice, barley grass juice is a popular juicing ingredient said to promote detox and offer a wide range of health benefits. Proponents claim that barley grass can help treat or prevent many health problems, including:
    • Diabetes
    • Heart Disease
    • High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
    • High Cholesterol
    • Inflammation
    • Insomnia

    Additionally, barley grass is said to promote weight loss, enhance energy, slow the aging process, stimulate the digestive system, boost immunity, and even protect against cancer. So far, there is very little scientific evidence to support the many health claims for barley grass. Still, some research suggests that following a specialized diet that includes barley grass may offer certain benefits.

  • Fibromyalgia: A 2001 study published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, for instance, indicates that a vegetarian diet consisting of fruit, salads, carrot juice, tubers, grain products, nuts, seeds, and a dehydrated barley grass juice product may benefit people with fibromyalgia. Analyzing data on the 26 participants who followed the diet for two months, scientists found that the diet helped relieve fibromyalgia symptoms, reduce pain, and improve flexibility.

  • High Cholesterol: In a more recent study (published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine in 2008), researchers found that following a diet that includes barley grass may help reduce cholesterol levels. For the study, 28 subjects completed a fruit-and-vegetable-rich nutritional program that involved several supplements made with barley grass powder. By the end of the 21-day program, participants showed significant reductions in total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol.

  • Barley Grass VS Wheatgrass: Some proponents claim that barley grass is easier on the digestive system than wheatgrass. In addition, barley grass is said to contain an exceptionally high amount of "organic sodium" and therefore alleviate arthritis symptoms more effectively than wheatgrass juice. However, there is no evidence that barley grass is superior to wheatgrass in terms of its likelihood of producing adverse effects, its nutritional properties, or its health effects.



  • BARLEY GRASS WHOLE FOOD SUPPLEMENT

    Barley Grass is a whole food supplement. Dehydrated whole leaf Barley Grass includes the natural juice and fiber found in fresh Barley Grass. Green barley leaves contain a wide spectrum of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Among the vitamins are beta carotene and five B vitamins, including vitamin B-12 (which is often thought to come only from animal sources). Barley grass also contains folic acid and the antioxidant vitamins C and E. Minerals include calcium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus. A recent laboratory analysis on green barley grass has turned up traces of more than 70 other minerals. It is a whole food loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, fiber and many more nutrients your body needs every day.

    Barley grass contains eighteen amino acids, including the eight essential ones - the amino acids that we must get from our diet. The body cannot produce them itself. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are the major constituents of every cell and body fluid (except urine and bile) and are thus necessary for the continual cell building, cell regeneration, and energy production that we need for life. An added benefit of the green barley leaf proteins is that they are polypeptides; smaller proteins that can be directly absorbed by the blood, where they promote cell metabolism (the chemical changes that we need to live) and neutralize substances that are bad for our health.

    Green barley leaves contain a multitude of the body's spark plugs, enzymes. Enzymes are the catalysts for the body's essential chemical reactions and are responsible for our digestive processes, for providing cellular energy, and for antioxidant effects.

    Barley Grass also contains chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has been studied for its potential as a deodorant, in stimulating tissue growth, and in stimulating red blood cells in connection with blood supply. Perhaps most remarkable is the similarity between chlorophyll and the red pigment in blood. Research in the 1940s demonstrated that the two pigments react the same during breakdown. According to an article in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (Jan. 4, 1995), chlorophyll fed to laboratory animals reduces absorption of three dietary carcinogens: heterocyclic amines (found in cooked muscle meats), polycyclic hydrocarbons (found in smoked and barbecued foods), and aflatoxin (a mold on peanuts). The chlorophyll formed complex compounds with the carcinogens while they were still in the digestive tract, limiting their bioavailability. Chlorophyll has also been found to reduce fecal, urinary, and body odor in geriatric patients.

    Barley Grass has a high alkalizing effect, which helps keep the ratio between acidity and alkalinity in our body fluids balanced. Our cells cannot adequately function if the pH (which measures acidity and alkalinity) is not in a narrow range. Most processed foods are acidic, and when we consume too many of them, the acidity-alkalinity balance is upset. Barley Grass contains buffer minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Buffer minerals neutralize acidic materials and can help people maintain a healthy acidity-alkalinity balance.

    Recently, research has unveiled many other possible benefits of green barley leaves. Extracted compounds may have hypocholesteromic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-ulcer properties. A new antioxidant has been isolated from Barley Grass and reported to have antioxidant activity equal to or superior to vitamin E.

    The green juice from young barley shoots possess strong antiinflammatory activity. A study done in Japan showed that powdered juice significantly reduced arthritis and gastric ulcers in laboratory animals. Barley Grass gives increased strength and muscle expansion to those who work out regularly with weights.

    Suggested use as a whole food supplement, mix 1 tablespoon in 8 to 12 ounces of water, fruit, or vegetable juice. This amount provides the nutritional equivalent of a dark green leafy vegetable salad.


    BARLEY GRASS SUPPLEMENTS

    Barley grass is used as an ingredient at many juice bars. In addition, natural-food stores often sell bottled juices that contain barley grass juice. Some stores also sell kits that allow you to grow your own barley grass for juicing purposes. Available for purchase online from our merchants, barley grass powder (a dehydrated form of barley grass extract), barley grass capsules, and barley grass tablets are sold in many natural-food stores and in stores specializing in dietary supplements.

    Disclaimer It is important to note that these studies did not test any potential health benefits specific to barley grass. Therefore, the degree to which barley grass may have contributed to any positive outcomes is unknown. While drinking juices or smoothies containing barley grass may offer some nutritional benefits, barley grass should not be used as a substitute for standard treatment of any chronic condition.

    MEASUREMENTS: Barley grains were used for measurement in England, there being three or four barleycorns to the inch and four or five poppy seeds to the barleycorn. The statute definition of an inch was three barleycorns, although by the 19th century, this had been superseded by standard inch measures. This unit still persists in the shoe sizes used in Britain and the USA. The barleycorn was known as arpa in Turkish, and the feudal system in Ottoman Empire employed the term arpalik, or "barley-money", to refer to a second allowance made to officials to offset the costs of fodder for their horses.

    ORNAMENTALS: A new stabilized variegated variety of Hordeum vulgare, billed as Hordeum vulgare varigate, has been introduced for cultivation as an ornamental and pot plant for pet cats to nibble.

    RESEARCH: The chlorophyll-binding a/b protein is missing in albostrains of barley, and they have been used to study plastid development in plants. Researching white-streaked strains, plant scientists have gained a greater understanding of reporter gene expression in the production of chloroplast proteins.


    BARLEY GRASS DIETARY USES

    In 1940, it was explained how the vitamins, minerals, and protein in the cereal grasses are essential to animals and humans. A dehydrated preparation of cereal grass called "cerophyl" was approved as an "accepted food" by the Council of Foods of the American Medical Association in 1939. Later, synthetic nutrients were added to a number of foods, and multivitamins gained popularity. The juice of barley grass contains beta carotene, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, pantothenic acid, and folic acid. Minerals present include potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium. Other constituents are chlorophyll, amino acids, protein, fiber, and enzymes. Cobalamin or vitamin B-12 deficiency may be avoided in vegetarian diets by supplementation with dehydrated barley grass juice.

    Many health conscious individuals are including green food concentrates such as Barley grass and other cereal grasses in their diets. The appeal being that Barley grass is richer in individual vitamins and enzymes than many other known super-foods. The real benefit and power of Barley grass is the combination of all these nutrients and enzymes in one food. Barley grass is sprouted from barley seeds and is best consumed by juicing the grass sprouts (at 3 to 7 days old) to produce a powerful fresh green juice elixir. It is also available in powder form (spray-dried barley grass) and is very easily digested by the body.

    Celebrity Nutritionist, Gillian McKeith, states in her book, Living Food for Health: 12 Natural Super-foods to Transform Your Health, that barley grass offers more protein than a sirloin steak, five times the amount of iron as broccoli, seven times more vitamin C than orange juice and 11 times more calcium than milk. Consuming Barley grass has also shown to balance the pH of the body. The average Western diet is fairly acidic especially when large quantities of processed foods are eaten. Raised acidity in the body is linked to many diseases and general ill-health. Barley grass is very alkalizing and useful for helping the cells in the body function optimally.

    RESEARCH STUDIES ON BARLEY GRASS

    Research done on patients with ulcerative colitis showed that those given Barley grass showed significant improvements in their symptoms - including fewer episodes of diarrhea and less pain - compared to the group receiving conventional medication (standard anti-inflammatory medication including steroids). Ulcerative colitis is linked to low levels of friendly bacteria in the gut and an accumulation of toxins in the bowel. Barley grass helps reverse this by stimulating the growth of friendly bacteria, which in turn helps reduce inflammation and improves symptoms. Barley grass helps combat ulcerative colitis by lowering the amount of inflammatory chemicals in the bowel, including one called epithelial NF-k, and by balancing the water content of the bowel content. Studies also show that barley grass increases the amount of friendly bacteria in the patients' bowels.

    Other studies done in Japan have shown that barley grass tea significantly improves the flow of blood as well as lowers the amount of LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol.

    Barley grass has also shown promising results in preliminary studies done on its ability to inhibit certain cancer cell growths, mainly breast and prostate cancer. There are testimonies of cancer patients, who have been healed by consuming Barley grass and changing their lifestyles, but further studies are needed.

    INCLUDING BARLEY GRASS IN YOUR DIET

    Enjoy barley grass in healthy smoothies or by juicing it. It is simple to grow all year round (by sprouting) on a sunny kitchen windowsill. Cut the grass with kitchen scissors to juice with carrots, apples, beet root, parsley and celery. Its super-food status makes it well worth having in constant supply. Other healthy grasses you can sprout and eat are alfalfa grass, oat grass and wheat grass.


    BARLEY GRASS ENERGIZING DRINK RECIPE

    Try this super-food energizing drink from the recipe below. Drink it straight away to benefit from the enzymes and nutrients - it makes enough for two. Use a juicer with a centrifugal twisting action. Ordinary juicers do not twist the juice out thoroughly enough.
      2 cups of fresh barley grass and juice
      2 medium-sized beet roots
      2 medium-sized carrots
      2 celery sticks
      1 cup of parsley
      1 large peeled apple or two smaller ones.

    Take barley grass and juice with beet roots, carrots, celery, parsley, and apple. Pour over ice cubes in a glass and drink immediately.


    ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY: Barley leaf extract has the ability to scavenge free radicals. Reactive oxygen species have been shown to play an important part in mediating the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and can be instrumental in the pathogenesis of diseases such as rheumatoid synovitis, arthritis, and gout. Animal data shows an increased production of oxygen-free radicals with barley leaf extract added to the diet. Clinical studies show blood levels of oxygen-free radicals were reduced by supplementation with 15 grams per day barley leaf extract in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Similar results were noted in nondiabetic, hyperlipidemic patients. More clinical studies are needed to show the extent of benefits in humans.

    CANCER PREVENTION: Barley grass extracts protect human tissue cells against carcinogens. The mechanism of action is unknown but may be associated with the plant's antioxidant activity or its chlorophyll content. It has been suggested that complexes may be formed between the carcinogen and the chlorophyll that may inactivate the carcinogen. In addition, antioxidants, including superoxide dismutase, found in high concentrations in green barley juice protect against radiation and free radicals. Research reveals no clinical data regarding the use of barley grass for cancer-preventive properties.

    HYPERLIPIDEMIA: Cholesterol-lowering effects have been attributed to the beta-sitosterol components, in part. Beta-sitosterol is thought to act by inhibiting the intestinal absorption of cholesterol and accelerating its catabolism to bile acid. Preliminary animal and clinical data show that total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels were lowered. HCL cholesterol levels were increased. More clinical studies are needed to be conclusive.

    OTHER BARLEY GRASS USES: Many claims have been made regarding the health benefits of barley grass supplements. Suggested benefits include treatment of HIV infection, detoxification of pollutants, and boosting energy and immunity. However, objective evidence supporting many of these claims is lacking.





    BARLEY GRASS DOSAGE INFORMATION

    SUPPLEMENTS

    A broad blade grass with a lighter green color than wheat, Barley Grass is consumed by many people in the form of a powder or capsule as a green food supplement. The juice is a much more potent food and is quite intense, flavor-wise, so it has been suggested to mix barley juice with other grains or vegetable juices to come up with a tasty blend. This is a completely subjective decision as some people love straight barley grass juice.

    A recommended blend is to used 4 parts Wheatgrass juice with 1 part Barley Grass juice. The grasses all provide about the same nutrition so feel free to mix and match freely to your own taste. If you are going to grow your own barley grass shoots, you will need to purchase a special juicer to extract the juice from the grass.

    Barley Grass supplements can be taken everyday to give your body the vitamins and nutrients it needs. For treating specific conditions it is best to read and follow product label directions. Due to a lack of scientific research on the health effects of barley grass, little is known about the safety of consuming barley grass in the long term.

    A dose of 15 grams per day dried barley leaf extract has been used to lower cholesterol. Take two to three capsules three times daily with water at mealtimes. Add one to two heaping teaspoons of powder into cold water or other beverage as desired. Drink once or twice daily. Six grams per heaping teaspoon. Take 3 Vegicaps with 8 ounces of water once or twice daily.

    A typical preparation is a level tablespoon (3 to 4 grams) of barley grass powder added to teas, smoothies, cereals, or other foods daily. It can also be taken in a capsule or in extract form.

    BARLEY GRASS SAFETY & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    There are no known safety issues or interactions associated with Barley grass.

    Research has shown that people on a Vegan diet that included Barley grass were likely to show reduced levels of vitamin B-12. Supplementation is required for this essential nutrient. Contraindications have not yet been identified. Information regarding safety and efficacy in pregnancy and lactation is lacking. Barley grass may stop lactation in nursing mothers.

    Side Effects: Although hypersensitivity to barley products typically is associated with the seed and not the green leaves or shoots, patients with celiac disease or other sensitivities to barley probably should avoid use of barley grass.
