Q: Will BarleyGreen stay fresh after opening?
A: Yes. The maltodextrin acts as a protective carrier to keep the barley grass from oxidizing or spoiling, which preserves the integrity of these elements until dissolved and released in liquid.
Q: Why is Barley Green so green?
A: The "green" is from chlorophyll. Barley grass has one of the highest, natural, rich chlorophyll contents of all the green vegetables. In fact, Barley Grass has 66 times more chlorophyll than spinach.
Q: How many calories in BarleyGreen?
A: Barley Green has 20 calories per serving.
Q: Is there a difference between BarleyGreen tablets and Barley Green powder?
A: Both are identical except that because the powder form is instantly soluble, it will be assimilated more rapidly than the tablets and some digestion of the soluble powder may occur in the mouth and esophagus as well.
Q: How long does BarleyGreen retain its value?
A: Barley Green, like all our products, has a shelf life of 3 years.
Q: Will I have an allergic reaction to the barley in BarleyGreen?
A: No. The powdered juice is taken from the leaves, it is the gluten content in corn, wheat, and barley grain which causes allergies. None of the ingredients in Barley Green contain gluten.
Q: What are antioxidants? What do they do?
A: Antioxidants are properties in certain nutrients which have been proven by research to help defend against "free radicals." Free radicals are unstable molecules which may cause chemical reactions thought to be responsible for damaging cells, thus causing them to function improperly. The result may be diseases such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, and many others. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals and thus help to preserve our bodyŐs cells.
Q: If I take Barley Green, should I also take other supplements?
A: If desired. Barley Green provides all the whole food goodness you need provided you eat nutritious meals. Each individual should consider his or her own body and its needs and supplement accordingly.
Q: Can I use BarleyGreen as a prenatal supplement?
A: Yes, Barley Green provides such a rich balance of all the nutrients that it is equivalent to a whole salad of dark green vegetables. Forty-five percent of its weight is in polypeptide (lightweight) proteins. It is excellent for you and your unborn baby.
Q: What does a detoxifier do and how might this affect me?
A: A detoxifier "leaches" the toxins or poisons that have been stored within the body by releasing them into the fluid stores of the body (blood, urine, perspiration, etc.). When detoxifying, you should drink plenty of water to dilute the released toxins for elimination. You may experience gas bubbles, skin rash, itchiness, and muscle tightness, which are all signs of poisons exiting the body. After one to two weeks, the system should be cleansed and the skin and internal body should look and feel great!
Q: Can I make up a large amount of Barley Green and keep it in the refrigerator?
A: No, live nutrients are released when Barley Green is mixed with the proper liquids and should be taken no more than 20 minutes or so after preparation. When live nutrients are no longer protected either by fiber or by maltodextrin, they will begin to oxidize and "die." BarleyGreen should be taken immediately after preparation in order to receive the maximum amount of nutritional benefit.
Q: Will taking Barley Green after or with meals hinder its effectiveness?
A: You can drink Barley Green anytime, but we suggest you take it alone so that your body can assimilate the full benefits of its properties quickly and easily without other foods being present to slow this process.
Q: Is the barley organically grown?
A: Yes, we grow our barley without any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We are certified organic and we reuse all water and vegetable residue as natural mulch for our fields.
Q: Where should I store Barley Green?
A: As Barley Green should be kept away from moisture and sunlight, it should be stored in its own jar in your cupboard with the lid fastened securely. We do not recommend storing BarleyGreen in the refrigerator where condensation could cause nutrients to oxidize and break down.
Q: Will Barley Green upset my stomach?
A: No, BarleyGreen is mildly alkaline, which pH balances the acidic stomach juices. This can aid in settling the stomach.
Q: What does the chlorophyll do?
A: The chlorophyll content of BarleyGreen is a natural detoxifier and rids the intestines of stored toxins. Because it is a natural detoxifier, it also aids in reducing bad breath.
Q: Is there a difference in the chlorophyll you buy as a supplement versus chlorophyll you obtain from natural sources like BarleyGreen?
A:Yes. It is impossible to isolate naturally occurring chlorophyll. Therefore, those supplements containing chlorophyll are not in the same form as one finds in live plants. BarleyGreen is an excellent way to obtain chlorophyll in its natural state.
Q: Can I use BarleyGreen for fasting?
A: Yes, BarleyGreen is the perfect "food" for fasting. The protein content and complex carbohydrates provide stamina and energy for the bodyŐs systems.
Q: What are the Hot and Cold Water tests?
A: These two simple tests indicate if a product contains fiber (Cold Water Test) and viable proteins (Hot Water Test). The Cold Water Test: Place one-half teaspoon of either BarleyGreen or a competitorŐs product in a glass of cold water and stir. Observe after a few minutes. Barley Green will remain dissolved and the water will appear uniform while a competitorŐs product containing fiber or insoluble substances will have settling at the bottom of the glass. The Hot Water Test: Sprinkle one-half teaspoon of either BarleyGreen or a competitorŐs product into a glass of very hot water and stir gently for a couple of seconds. BarleyGreen will clump up because the shapes of the living enzymes are being changed by heat for the first time, whereas the competitorŐs product will disperse and not clump up because the enzymes have already been "denatured" by heat and do not change shape when heated again.
Q: If I take other supplements along with Barley Green, will I overdose on vitamins?
A: No, BarleyGreen is a whole food extract and as such is compatible with any supplements you are taking. Generally, whole foods do not contain excessive amounts of any particular nutrient. However, individuals should consider their needs for supplements accordingly.
