In our search for the healthiest and most wholesome organic foods, we often overlook “unused” parts of fruits and veggies we eat regularly.
Barley was one of the first grains to ever be cultivated by humans. It’s a staple of many diets around the world. Despite growing it for thousands of years, we ended up overlooking the prime nutrition source this plant provided.
Barley grass was recently found to be very nutritionally dense. Aside from this, they also turned out to have an abundance of health benefits.
Flavonoids and phytochemicals found in barley grass have a positive effect on controlling cholesterol levels. Research has shown that phytochemicals help in keeping LDL and HDL cholesterol levels in check.
Strengthens the Immune System
Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Iron, and Folic Acid found in barley grass are vital in maintaining red blood cell count and hemoglobin levels. Iron, which is 5 times more abundant in barley grass than in spinach, prevents anemia and exhaustion.
Helps in Weight Loss Efforts
High-fiber content in barley grass helps in curbing one’s appetite. Soluble fibers form a gel-like substance in the gut and in turn slow down digestion and absorption of nutrition. This leads to a feeling of fullness.
The enzyme superoxide-dismutase (SOD) is found in young barley leaves. It acts as an antioxidant and neutralizes free radicals and reactive oxygen. It can be used to treat inflammatory diseases and considerably reduce stress.
Effective body detox
The chlorophyll and beta carotene present in the body play a part in eliminating toxic waste from the body and aid the liver in doing so.
Superoxide-dismutase also slows down cell death by reacting with harmful oxides that might lead to permanent DNA damage. This indirectly contributes to aging.
