I start eating alkaline on January 28, 2013 and have bought supplements that will help me. Dr. Maiysha T. Clairborne and Dr. Robert Young both recommend a concentrated green powder.
Dr. Clairborne shared the brand that she likes and I am going with that one (Green Vibrance). They both shared information about grasses, specifically wheat grass and barley grass.
In my quest for a good green powder, I kept coming across barley grass. I am not a stranger to Barley grass, because I have taken it in the past. The difference is that in the past, I did not know a lot about barley grass, but today, I know more about barley grass.
You are probably thinking, “Grass is for cows, how can it be good for me?” Today you will learn about Barley grass and how beneficial it is.
Grasses are nutrient-dense, even more so than vegetables. Wheat grass and barley grass are good sources of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll gives grasses the power to regenerate our bodies at the molecular and cellular level.
About Barley Grass
Barley grass has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for at least 1800 years.
You can grow barley grass by soaking and sprouting the seeds. When the young leaves reach the desired height, you can juice the grass. Make sure you use a juicer that juices this grass.
Thanks for the info Evelyn and I wish you much success with your alkaline diet. Green powders are an excellent natural supplement and will help to alkalize the body. Spirulina and Chlorella are also two whole foods that also help.
Thanks for chiming in and sharing, Aqiyl! I appreciate you supporting me on my efforts of following an alkaline diet. So far things are going good. Day 3 and I'm doing well. :)
Have a great day!
You can find Barley Grass in powderd form in a Vitamin Shoppe and other natural food stores. I have not seen the actual Barley Grass (the grass), I have only purchased wheatgrass (the grass) from natural food stores and a farmers market. Barley Grass is very similiar to wheatgrass and can be grown the same way. If you have further questions, let me know.
Thanks for stopping by!
