An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
That’s my personal belief. In our family, we take natural food supplements like malunggay capsules, chia seeds, bee propolis, and many others for good health and better immunity. I do this more rigidly with our eldest daughter Dindin, who was prone to allergies when she was a baby until her preschool years. It was really so bad
But one bad experience with giving her antibiotics, I said to myself that I will do everything and give her everything that we can afford to make her healthier and stronger through nutrition and food supplementation.
And so we did. One of the things that I gave her in the past was barley, which was contained in a bottle, I would mix it with water and give it to her over a course of several days. I kept it refrigerated. Eventually, I gave her other food supplements throughout her growing up years.
Thankfully, there are now more barley brands that we can choose from in the market, each with their pros and cons.
How to Take Barley Gras
Barley grass may be consumed in the form of juice, as extracted from the cereal grass sprouts. Or you can have it in the form of green powder, which is produced by spray drying the barley grass.
Health Benefits of Barley Grass
Barley grass is a powerful food — a super food if you may say. And it has so many health benefits. Here they are below:
Barley grass is a very powerful antioxidant. It has vitamin E, beta carotene, as well as the critical enzyme superoxide dismutase that helps neutralize the effects of oxygen free radicals produced during the body’s metabolism. These prevent the development of a wide array of diseases that are caused by oxidative stress.
The cleansing ability of the barley grass makes it effective in eliminating the accumulated harmful heavy metals in our bodies, especially lead, which may cause behavior and learning disorders in children. The presence of trace elements in barley like zinc, selenium, and copper are the ones responsible for the detoxification process. Moreover, the abundance of chlorophyll and beta carotene in barley grass stimulates the eradication of waste materials in the body, such as mucus and crystallized acids. It also supports the metabolic processes that aid in strengthening and detoxifying the liver.
Treatment of ulcerative colitis
Barley grass is valuable in treating ulcerative colitis because of its stimulating effect on gut friendly bacteria. It helps in relieving the inflammation and other associated symptoms related to ulcerative colitis by reducing the aggravating chemicals in the bowel. Barley grass also assists eliminating accumulated toxins in the body.
With all its components, barley grass boosts the immune defense mechanism of the body. With that, regular consumption of barley grass provides the required nutrition needed for balancing the optimal production of healthy cells in the body. An strong immunity vigilantly fights infections and prevents the development of degenerative diseases.
Barley grass is also effective in the fight against cancer because of the superoxide dismustase enzyme. It prevents the formation as well as cures the cancer cells. It also has peridoxase protein and catalase enzyme. The catalase enzymes has the ability to decompose and neutralize the effects of toxic hydrogen peroxide, which is produced during respiration and help suppress the proliferation of cancer cells.
Protection from radiation and cellular damage
With continues consumption, barley grass protects the body from the cell destructing effects of UV radiations. It also helps prevent and extends the therapeutic relief on the existing damaged cell, still because of superoxide dismustase enzymes. Barley grass juice also aids in reducing the radiation stress in the people who are more prone to such exposure, such as those living in urban and large cites.
It has also been established that barley grass is an effective remedy for fighting various kinds of addictions. The presence of glutamic acid in barley grass inhibits the craving for harmful substances, such as alcohol, drugs, coffee, nicotine, and even sugary sweets.
Barley grass contributes to the acid alkali balance in the body, mainly because of its super alkaline nature. It is a natural alkaline source that helps in reducing the excess acidity of the body.
Furthermore, barley grass is a natural way to stimulate the regeneration of cells without side effects. It contains vital components such as chlorophyll, vitamin B, iron, and phcocyanin, a blue pigment in barley grass that supports the creation of white and red blood cells. This renewing effect of barley grass also helps prevent the signs of aging. Additionally, the useful enzymes present in barley grass improve the quality of blood and regulate digestion.

SigridSays: I am not a doctor so I would not advice you stopping your doctor-prescribed medication. But I would think that it would be good to just add barley grass in your diet to improve your overall health while under treatment. That is just my opinion and medical advice still trumps mine. I am currently taking (although not daily) the pure barley while my kids drink the chocolate mix. They just share one pack because they can’t finish the mixture.
