Barley grass powder is made from the dried young leaves of the barley plant and is possibly Nature's most complete food. As a natural multi-vitamin, Barley Grass provides all the vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, fibre and special nutrients like chlorophyll essential in our diet to meet our nutritional requirements. All these nutrients are integrated by Nature into a natural balance and potency un-matched by synthetic formulations.
Synergy Barley Grass is 100% pure, whole leaf Barley Grass powder (Hordeum vulgare). It is grown outdoors in an environmentally clean area of Australia in deep, rich soils. Synergy Barley Grass contains no additives, fillers, colours or preservatives, and is handled sensitively every step of the way during growing, harvesting and processing of the plant in order to protect its nutrient profile.
Unlike barley grain, Synergy Barley Grass contains NO GLUTEN, ADDITIVES, FILLERS or BINDERS.
Weight for weight, Synergy Barley Grass leaf powder contains:
- 500% more Vitamin C than oranges.
- 200% the Calcium of milk.
- 500% more iron than spinach.
- 200% the fibre of bran.
- the major 18 vitamins, 20 minerals and 8 basic proteins required for proper body function.
- a generous supply of Beta-carotene, important in the function of Vit. A.
- a rich supply of Chlorophyll, a natural cleanser.
- Iron, Calcium and Potassium and the trace elements Zinc, Magnesium and Selenium.
- Antioxidants including SOD (super oxide dismutase).
- a highly alkalising food which counters the over-acidity of many processed foods.
The plant is harvested while young and tender, at its optimum nutritional peak. The freshly harvested leaf is transported within 1 hour to the processing plant where it is immediately slow dried in rotary driers at just above body temperature for a minimum period of 22 hours. The dried leaf is then milled into a fine powder using a world first twin pin milling system where the dried leaf enters a vacuum and is milled into a consistent particle size so it can easily be dissolved into liquids. Because this total system operates under vacuum it does not subject the product to any heat or friction usually found with conventional grinding methods - such heat compromises the quality and integrity of the product.
Where Does Barley Grass Come From?
Synergy Natural Barley Grass is grown on a certified organic farm nestled on the banks of the mighty Murray River in a regional provincial centre in Victoria, Australia. This region is a clean, pollution free environment, isolated from high density urban development and heavy industrial operations.(i.e. without pesticides, herbicides, insecticides or fungicides).
When cereal grasses are grown in open fertile soils the grass shoots grown achieve normal root growth as well as proper leaf development and therefore they have a much higher nutritional value compared to grasses grown indoors in shallow trays.
