Barley Grass
  Hordeum Vulgare

Superfood, One of the most ancient cultivated grains in the world considered sacred.   It is easy to assimilate into the system, one of the superfoods. It is an excellent blood cleanser and immune builder. Dr. Ann Wigmore founder Hippocrates Health Institute a pioneer of Barley and Wheat grass juices to cure cancer and other health treating diseases.

Originated in western Asia, where it was one of the first grains to be cultivated.  It was grown by the ancient Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and Egyptians.  The Greeks and Egyptians called Barley the sacred grain.  It is one of the most ancient of cultivated grains known and is one of the first crops planted in the Virginia Colony in 1611.   It is easy to assimilate into the system.  Hypocrites wrote an entire book on the benefits of a gruel made from barley grain. 

In ancient Rome, the gladiators were called hordearii or barley men because they consumed so much of this grain just before entering the amphitheaters to battle their opponents.  Today those who wish to develop finer physical physiques through strenuous exercise should consider adding barley in whole grain and juice powdered form to their diets. 

Today Barley is typically a special-purpose grain with many different varieties rather than just a general market crop like wheat.  It is a valuable stock feed (often replacing corn).  It is a minor source of flour and breakfast foods.  It is often used in soups such as Scotch Broth.  In the U.S., most spring barley comes form the western states and most winter barley is grown in the southeastern states for fall and spring pasture and as a cover crop.

In the late 1930"s, dairy scientists at the University of Wisconsin noticed that the nutritional value of summer milk was much higher than that of cow"s milk produced at other seasons of the year.  When fed on summer milk, experimental animals thrived, but when it was replaced with winter mild they eventually became sick and died.  Scientist noted that it was the enriching meadow and cereal such as barley grasses the cows had free access to during the summer months.  This makes one wonder about the feedlot dairy farming practices now prevalent across the United States.

Comparison tests have shown Barley Grass Juice Powder to have as much as thirty times more vitamin B-1 than cow"s milk and eleven times the amount of Calcium.  Barley Grass Juice Powder holds about six times the amount of carotene than does spinach.  It has seven times the amount of vitamin C, than an equal amount of oranges.  Barley also has B-12, a vitamin that works to overcome fatigue and anemia, an important factor for many vegetarians.

Dr. Ann Wigmore who founded the Hippocrates Health Institute in Boston, Massachusetts was a pioneer of the use of Barley and Wheat grass juices to cure cancer and other health treating diseases.  People came to Doctor Wigmore who were given no hope by their doctors.  These were people who crawled, barely walked, or had to be carried in, somehow seemed to survive even by the slimmest of margins.  They got well and lived to tell or write about it!  Such as Eydie Maie Hunsberger, who wrote the book "How I Conquered Cancer Naturally!"

Barley Brass Powder provide SOD (super oxide dismutase), a free radical scavenger, in greater amounts than most any other food source available.  It is an excellent blood cleanser and immune builder.  It detoxifies cells and normalizes metabolism while lowering cholesterol.  It assists in balancing the body chemistry and acts as a cell detoxifier.  It also neutralizes heavy metals such as lead and mercury.
