Nutritional Value of Barley Grass

Barley grass is a concentrated source of nearly three dozen vitamins and minerals. Barley grass is particularly rich in vitamins A, C, B1, B2, folic acid, and B12; calcium; iron; potassium; and chlorophyll. Unlike most plants, barley grass provides all nine essential amino acids that your body can't produce.

Barley grass and wheat grass leaves are very alkaline, so digesting them can help maintain the body's alkaline and acidity balance. Our cells cannot function properly if the pH moves out of a narrow range.

Barley grass is high in chlorophyll, which is known to help cleanse the body, fight infection, heal wounds, and promote the health of the circulatory, digestive and immune, detoxify the systems, and may be able to increase the number of red blood cells and the body's ability to use oxygen.
