Active ingredients in barley grass juice
Barley grass extract
Of the barley plant, the healthy barley grain is best known to us. It is one of the oldest and most important food stuff of humans. In barley grass, however, chlorophyll, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, proteins, amino acids, isoflavonoids and essential fatty acids are contained in a particularly favorable composition and abundance. In the green leaves, the energy of the sun and the powerful ingredients of the soil are converted into vital substances, which the human body can optimally exploit.
Chlorophyll in barley grass
Chlorophyll is the only substance that can pass on the stored power of the sun to the human cell (photosynthesis)! The cells are supplied with more oxygen by chlorophyll-containing food, metabolic processes are optimized and brain cells are better blooded. Barley grass powder has the highest content of chlorophyll and is only comparable to the blue-green algae.
Chlorophyll supports blood formation. It corresponds in structure to the red blood dye hemoglobin with the only difference that the chlorophyll molecule contains a magnesium atom instead of an iron atom. This resemblance to hemoglobin promotes the blood-cleansing effect of barley grass juice, helps with anaemia and weakness of drive, and contributes to the normalization of blood sugar levels.
Chlorophyll can lower blood lipids, one of the causes of heart attack and stroke. (Synthetically produced or isolated substances not left in their original whole often have a stressful and toxic effect on prolonged intake and higher doses, which can be manifested by nausea, constipation, fatigue or headaches).
Chlorophyll, the green plant blood, will in the near future be the saving medicine for many to treat civilizational diseases, immunodeficiency, infertility, hemorres, pollution from environmental toxins and radiation damage.
Minerals in barley grass
Minerals are vital for cell building and essential for the effect of enzymes and vitamins. The abundance of minerals in barley grass also helps us maintain the acid-base balance and reduce acidification.
Barley grass contains five times as much iron as spinach and twice as much potassium as wheatgrass. It also contains chromium, iodine, calcium, cobalt, copper, magnesium, manganese, sodium, phosphorus, sulfur, selenium, silicon, zinc and many other trace elements.
Barley grass provides a lot of calcium – twice as much as milk. (Milk does not contain magnesium and is therefore unsuitable as a calcium supplier). Calcium – the most important bone-forming artist – reduces the feeling of pain, reduces the susceptibility to stress and relaxes the heart muscle.
Silicon, better known as silica, is the most important trace element for the build-up of connective tissue. Poor connective tissue is responsible for premature wrinkle formation, skin aging, vein weakness and varicose veins. Sufficient silicon is at least as important in osteoporosis as calcium.
Calcium ensures healthy intestinal function, strengthens sphincter muscles and lowers blood pressure. Potassium and sodium regulate the fluid balance.
Manganese is used for the construction of cartilage tissue (intervertebral discs) and for protein, fat, and sugar metabolism. Manganese, as well as zinc, are responsible for the function of muscles and neurons and the normalization of blood sugar levels.
Zinc supports the immune system, the formation of about 200 enzymes, the coordination of nerves, brain and muscle activity and helps with wound healing and skin diseases.
Magnesium strengthens the heart and ensures that calcium can be absorbed. It is used in cancer prevention and in accompanying cancer therapy. Magnesium deficiency causes irritability and susceptibility to stress.
Copper, an essential component of many enzymes, protects against anaemia and atherosclerosis. It strengthens the immune system (antibodies and killer cells formation) and is essential for pigmentation of skin and hair. Deficiency symptoms include early graying of the hair and pale skin.
Iron is important for blood formation and oxygen uptake.
Selenium protects against free radicals and environmental toxins such as cadmium, lead and nitrite, it reduces the toxicity of mercury in the body and strengthens the defense against viruses and bacteria.
Vitamins in barley grass juice
Barley grass powder contains all vital vitamins except vitamin D (this is formed by the body in sufficient sunlight in the skin itself); Provitamin A (betakarotin and retinol), vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), B12 (cobalamin), C, E, K, pantothenic acid and choline. It also contains a special form of vitamin E, the alpha tocopherol succinate, which is instrumental in the release of prolactin. (Prolactin strengthens the immune system, delays the aging process, reduces the risk of breast and colorectal cancer and relieves aggression).
Provitamin A is essential for cell protection function and is important for the function of the eyes, skin and mucous membranes, it protects against sunburn, from infections and the harmful effects of cancer-causing substances, such as skin cancer, lung cancer and cancer of the ovaries. It supports normal bone development, body growth and fertility of men and women.
Vitamin B1 regulates the normal function of nerve cells, heart muscle and sugar metabolism. Deficiency leads to growth disorders, nerve disorders, fatigue, lack of concentration and loss of appetite.
Vitamin B2 is important for protein and sugar metabolism, for growth, cell respiration and cell energy, eyes, skin, harre and nails. In case of deficiency, early aging, mild sensitivity, growth disorders and developmental disorders in the child’s fruit occur.
Vitamin B6 forms neurotransmitters and antibodies and promotes the function of the heart, liver, stomach, intestines and nervous system, cell metabolism and promotes blood formation. Deficiency leads to anemia, irritability, sleep disorders and kidney stones.
Vitamin B9 forms and regenerates red blood cells and the nervous system. Many women have a folic acid deficiency during pregnancy, as the need here is twice as high. Deficiency symptoms include insomnia, depression, stomach and intestinal discomfort
Vitamin B12 promotes blood formation and healthy nerve tissue, supports fat and protein metabolism and provides energy.
Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals, strengthens the immune system, promotes the elasticity of tissues (including blood vessels), wound healing and formation of scar tissue, the absorption of iron and calcium, and supports the hormone release of the adrenal gland. Stress is a vitamin C predator. Smokers, the elderly, pregnant women, nursing mothers, women taking the contraceptive pill and people who have a lot of stress should resort to the vitamin C source in barley grass.
Vitamin E is important for cell membranes and the development of muscles and connective tissue. It protects the heart, pancreas, adrenal glands and genitals and stimulates blood circulation. It prevents arterial calcification and cancer; delays the aging process, regulates cholesterol levels and the woman’s hormonal balance and neutralizes free radicals. Deficiency leads to reduced resistance to red blood cell decay, heart disease, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, hardening of the arteries, venous inflammation, varicose veins, leg cramps, obesity; Infertility, impotence, prostate cancer, miscarriages, menstrual problems, maned milking and menopause.
The good results with barley grass during acidification (acidosis) and also in therapeutic addiction weaning open up new avenues of gentle and sustainable health restoration.
Stimulation such as coffee, black tea, caffeine drinks, cola, sweets, nicotine, etc. all lead to acidification of the body tissue. This can lead to the development of diabetes, rheumatism, osteoarthritis, cancer and increased growth of fungi, among other factors. Cancer and rheumatism can only thrive in acidic environments.
In contrast to wheatgrass, barley grass is also well tolerated by Candida sufferers.
Protein – Amino Acids
Barley grass juice consists of 23 easily represcusable protein, which contains all 8 essential, vital amino acids. (Conventional food contains only 2 amino acids, the remaining 6 amino acids must be formed by the body itself with additional energy expenditure).
The importance of an adequate protein intake cannot be overemphasized:
- Building materials for healthy cells and building tissue
- Formation of important components in antibodies, hormones and enzymes
- Renewal of damaged tissue including blood cells
- Provision of food energy
- Maintaining acid-base balance
Some amino acids contained in barley grass juice are: isolin, leuzine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, trypthophan, valine and also the amino acids alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, tyrosine and cystine.
E.g.: From arginine, the body forms the growth hormone HGH, which is responsible, among other things, for cartilage formation and whose increased formation alleviates intervertebral disc problems and related back pain.
e.g.: Glutamic acid supports memory, protects against the effects of radioactivity and UV radiation and heals radiation damage. (Before and after X-rays, you should drink barley grass juice). Phenylalanine promotes vitality and mental agility and reduces depression, pain and hunger.
The proteins in barley grass juice also serve a potent osteoporosis prophylaxis.
Enzymes in barley grass juice
Enzymes, consisting of protein, are guarantors of vitality and long life. They are heat-sensitive ignition sparks of life (many die at 42 degrees Celsius). They need a specific pH environment and act during the detoxification process like biocatalysts that activate and control chemical reactions but do not consume themselves in their activities.
Barley grass contains not only a variety of enzymes, but also the associated vitamins, minerals and trace elements as co-enzymes. Without enzymes, there is no life and no organism could survive.
Barley leaves, with more than 20 enzymes, is one of the few sources of superoxide dismutase (SOD): SOD is also the only treatment option for pancreatic inflammation, barley grass and melon extract are therapy of choice here, as conventional anti-inflammatory drugs lead to an aggravation of symptoms. In both laboratory and clinical tests, SOD has proven to be an effective enzyme that protects us from the destruction of cells by superoxides, infections, radiation, the aging process, poisoning by spoiled foods, polluted air and drugs. Preserved. (Dr. Ann Wigmore in “Slim, Fit and Healthy with Barley Grass”). SOD slows down the aging process in the brain, so it is the ideal brain food. SOD neutralizes carcinogenic substances and inhibits tumor growth. (Enzyme therapy is now used in medicine for cancer, heart disease, atherosclerosis and diabetes).
Antioxidants in barley grass juice
Normally, oxygen has a positive effect on breathing, metabolism and immune system. But if oxygen has too much or too little, there is a “radical” attempt to balance and connect at all costs. The oxygen compounds that are produced in this way, which are harmful to the organism, are “free radicals”. These attack the immune system, destroy genes, DNA, cell membrane, fats and protein, and are involved in the development of degenerative diseases, such as cancer and premature aging (Alzheimer, Parkinson’s, etc.).
The development of free radicals is promoted by stress, additives in food, medicines (including antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents), electrosmog (mobile phone, PC, etc.), solvents, cigarette smoke and alcohol, heavy metals (e.g. in water and amalgam tooth fillings), radiation exposure such as UV rays or X-rays.
Antioxidants are known as “catchers” of free radicals because they prevent the “bad” oxygen compounds from binding to other molecules. They neutralize free radicals and also help to prevent the formation of free radicals.
In addition to the well-known antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene (Pro-Vit. A), copper, manganese, selenium, zinc and enzymes such as SOD, catalase, peroidase and transhydogenase contain barley grass the unique isoflavonoid 2″-O-GIV, which has not yet been detected in any food.
Isoflavonoids in barley grass
The isoflavonoid 2″ O-GIV (glycosyl isovitexin) is the most effective of all antioxidants – even more effective than vitamin A and beta-carotene – that it is both fat soluble and water soluble. 2″-O-GIV can penetrate the outer and inner membrane of the nucleus and thus act directly into the nucleus. This can reverse the destructive effects of free radicals. 2″-O-GIV is much more effective as a cell protector for UV radiation than vitamin E or beta-carotene. One study found that vitamin E decays under UV irradiation, while 2″-O-GIV does not. 2″-O-GIV even exceeds the cell protection effect of lecithin and liver tran, lowers blood pressure and prevents atherosclerosis.
Isoflavonoids compensate for fluctuations in the woman’s hormonal balance, thus prevent menopause symptoms. They have a similar effect to the body’s own estrogens and are therefore particularly important in osteoporosis prophylaxis, as they retain calcium and promote its deposit in the bones. Another special feature is the both grease- and water-soluble property of the isoflavone. This allows both cell membranes to penetrate a cell, optimizing cell-protecting properties and promoting cell regeneration and skin rejuvenation.
Isoflavonoids also prevent hormone-dependent cancers and atherosclerosis and positively affect blood cholesterol levels.
Essential fatty acids
Barley grass contains a high proportion of essential fatty acids in an ideal composition 50 linoleic acid, 20 palmitic acid and 9 linoleic acid. They support the function of the liver and the build-up of nerve cells.
Bitter substances in barley grass strengthen the spleen, stomach and pancreas.
