Navigate through goodness

What else could evoke natural health, youth, and freshness better than bright green? We know exactly the secret ingredient you need for a green beauty and health elixir that you will fall in love with – barley grass juice!

Young barley grass, freshly cut before it produces any seeds, is a rich source of numerous important compounds such as polyphenol (which makes it a great support for a healthy cardiovascular system) flavonoids, lignans, phytosterols, folate, gamma-aminobutyric acid, superoxide dismutase, essential amino acids, iron, potassium, calcium, tryptophan, chlorophyll, and vitamins A, B1, C, and E. And when you think it can’t get any better, there’s this: even though barley grass is a cereal, it doesn’t contain gluten!

Barley Grass is one of the most nutrient rich foods in nature and has been used since ancient times for medicinal and healing purposes. – Medical Medium, Anthony Williams

Barley grass has a high content of chlorophyll (the green pigment found in plants), which inhibits pathogens in the body
Thanks to the high content of selenium, barley grass (or, green barley) is also great for skin and hair. It restores elasticity and suppleness of the skin, and contributes to strengthening the hair and nails. As it contains plenty of minerals, barley grass also boosts bone health – making it a great support in maintaining the health of the bone and muscle system, and in fighting osteoporosis. And what’s really important about this food: it supports cellular functions responsible for preventing cancer! If you are wondering how to benefit from barley grass, we have good news! There are many ways to include this amazing ingredient in your diet, and these are our favourites:

Fresh barley grass juice

Cold press juicing of fresh barley grass ensures the maximum nutrient delivery. Here is how to do it: 1. Use a high-quality juicer which is specially adapted for juicing greens and preserving the nutrients, such as the Omega MM900 Low Speed Masticating Juicer. 2. Wash the fresh ingredients to remove accumulated impurities. 3. Feed the juicer with small quantities of barley grass, and allow most of the juice to exit the juicer before putting more in.

A balanced diet - rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and minerals - supports hair growth and skin health, rejuvenating the body on the inside and outside

Some people might find the taste of barley grass juice too strong. In this case, you can add lemon, apple, ginger, carrots, and/or beets as a natural sweetener to dilute the taste of barley grass.

When juicing an ingredient for added flavour, insert that ingredient into the juicer during the first half of the juicing process. If inserted at the end of the process, the full taste may not come through.

You might think barley grass is not easy to find – and for most people, this is true. But growing it yourself is easier than you think! The bright green grass is aesthetically pleasant and will bring a fresh vibe to your garden or balcony.

Grow your barley grass with love in your next fun DIY project! For this, you’ll need barley seeds, growing trays with holes for draining, and some soil enriched with organic fertiliser or compost. To help you, we’ve found step-by-step detailed instructions for growing barley grass for juicing on Cultures for Health.
