Barley grass is a cereal grass harvested at its most nutritious stage; it contains a range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are important for optimum health and immunity
Barley Grass is a cereal grass that is cultivated at the early stage of development, when young Barley Grass is in its most nutritious state. However, as the plant gets older it becomes more fibrous providing much less nutritional value, this is why it is important to harvest Barley Grass when young.
Barley Grass is low in energy but high in vital nutrients. It contains no fat or cholesterol, has one gram of protein per 5 gram serving and contains both essential and non-essential amino acids. Amino Acids are building blocks found in protein foods that are important for growth and repair of the body’s cells.
Researchers are always looking for new highly nutritious products that can improve health and reduce the risk of disease.

Why choose Advigreen® Barley grass?
Antioxidants: Advigreen® Barley Grass contains powerful antioxidants that act as free radical scavengers reducing inflammation and helping to maintain a strong immune system that fights off infections and disease. It also contains the micronutrients folic acid, iron, B vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) is an active enzyme that helps to protect cells in the body from damage by free radicals. SOD works by scavenging excess superoxide which is a damaging free radical produced in the body during mitochondrial respiration. Barley grass is naturally high in SOD making it an ideal product to boost immunity and improve the body’s defence against disease and infection.
Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in certain plants and algae. It is this pigment that gives plants their distinct green colour. Plants use chlorophyll to trap light needed for photosynthesis. Chlorophyll may help to reduce the effects of oxidative damage (free radicals). For this reason it is suggested that foods and supplements containing appropriate amounts of chlorophyll can offer protection against certain diseases.
