BarleyLife - Traditional 280 vegetarian capsules
AIM BarleyLife is an all-natural, green barley grass juice powder concentrate that helps provide the daily nutrition you need to develop a strong foundation for your good health.
Young barley grass is the most nutritious of the green grasses. While barley has been used as a grain since ancient times, the value of barley as a grass was overlooked. Japanese researchers discovered that the young, green barley grass was an incredibly complete source of nutrition, containing a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, enzymes, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients.
The human body is not equipped with the enzymes to break down the fiber in the barley grass. Thus, without intervention, this nutrition remains insoluble and is, therefore, not bioavailable to the human body. As research progressed on young barley grass, it was discovered that, when grass was juiced and fiber removed, the vast nutritional profile of barley was unlocked for human consumption.
AIM uses an advanced processing technology in which the barley leaves are harvested when their nutrients are most potent and alive. Within minutes, the leaves are juiced (not milled, as in many other barley grass products) and processed using the most advanced, innovative and efficient cool processing method for maximum nutrition and fresh-tasting juice powder.
Brown Rice Oligodextrin
BarleyLife also contains Brown rice oligodextrin which offers the benefits of native proteins and nutrients from brown rice and acts as a buffer between the enzymes and other molecules, stabilising and maintaining the nutrients.
BarleyLife contains Laminaria digitata, a wild, uncultivated species of kelp from Atlantic ocean waters. Kelp provides additional iodine content to BarleyLife. Deficiencies in iodine have been linked to developmentally impaired cognitive functions, extreme fatigue, depression and weight gain.
Chlorophyll has been studied for its potential in stimulating tissue growth and in stimulating red blood cells in connection with oxygen supply. A remarkable similarity has been found between chlorophyll and the red pigment in the blood. The chlorophyll formed complex compounds with the carcinogens while they were in the digestive tract, limiting their bioavailability. The limiting of
BarleyLife contains naturally occurring vitamin K1 (phytonadione), which is found in plants. This fat-soluble vitamin plays a key role in proper bone growth and bone density maintenance. Vitamin K may help to ensure adequate bone density and protect against osteoporosis and hip fracture in postmenopausal women.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)
Green barley leaves contain a multitude of enzymes. Enzymes are essential for the thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body, including the absorption of digested nutrients. The enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) is a powerful antioxidant thought to slow the rate of cell destruction by providing a defence against free radicals.
