  • Argine, contained in barley juice, is used in healing wounds, producing hormones, and normal immune functions.
  • Ala nine, found in barley juice, is essential to promote healthy blood glucose from dietary protein.
  • Valine, a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA), has been used in improving sleep.
  • L-tyrosine has been used for appetite suppression and growth stimulation.
  • For more information on amino acids, refer to

Enzymes are the spark plugs of the body. Barley juice contains a multitude of active enzymes.

  • Act as a catalyst for many essential cellular reactions.
  • Improve digestive.
  • Provide antioxidant properties

The most well-known barley juice enzyme is superoxide dismutase (SOD). Many athletes take this well-known antioxidant to counteract the large amounts of free radicals they feel are produced by aerobic exercise.

Minerals found in Young Barley Juice:
Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Iodine, Copper, and Phosphorus

  • Potassium – may help with muscle contractions and increased energy production (converts glucose into energy)
  • Calcium – building block in bones and teeth; most effective in plant form; aids in digestion and metabolism; alkalizes the body
  • Magnesium – essential anti-aging mineral; helps fight stress
  • Iron – essential for hemoglobin production; removes carbon dioxide (an acid) from body; promotes a strong immune system
  • Copper – necessary for collagen production
  • Phosphorus – increases energy; repairs & rebuilds cells; promotes healthy kidney
  • Manganese - aids in metabolism, healthy thyroid, and an active sex life
  • Vitamin A (beta carotene & retinol) - immune system; vision; antioxidant

Barley juice powder helps restore the alkaline balance in the body. Human blood must remain slightly alkaline in order for red blood cells to carry their maximum oxygen load.
When the blood stream’s pH becomes more acidic (typically from a lack of green foods in one’s diet), the red blood cells cannot carry as much oxygen.
Since oxygen is the prime ingredient for turning food into useable energy., an acidic body is a tired body.

Furthermore, oxygen has been shown to fight unfriendly cell growth and harmful bacteria (Just think of everything that Hydrogen Peroxide is said to help with.)

So it stands to reason that anything that increases the blood’s oxygen levels might also have indirect effects on these issues.

Barley juice is loaded with alkalizing minerals including calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

In Addition, Various Studies Have Reported:

  • Chlorophyll (which barley grass contains) has been shown in the lab to inhibit unfriendly cell growth.
  • Extracted barley juice compounds have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

All in All
The juice of barley grass is the 21st century superfood, purported to be one of the only plants that provides every nutrient necessary for survival, including proteins, all 8 essential amino acids, highly alkalizing minerals, and a whole range of vitamins.

The point being – barley juice is the easy path to loading up on youth-enhancing, muscle-building, immune-strengthening ingredients. Just a few teaspoons mixed with juice or 10 – 20 easy-to-take tablets give your body the nutrients for a happy, healthy life.
