The juice of young barley grass shoots is one of the richest natural sources of phytonutrients. It contains no fewer than 70 of them! So it is hardly surprising that barley grass juice offers lots of different health benefits. Amongst other things, it supports the detoxification and purification of the blood; it helps to strengthen the body’s immune system; and it is a great natural energy booster. The dried powder of the juice of this remarkable grass is easy to work into a shake or smoothie, and can serve as a healthy addition to your daily portion of vegetables.
Fresh and green
If you want to have a healthy life style, it is recommended to eat 250 to 300 grams of fresh vegetables each day. Vegetables are rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibres and other phytonutrients, all of which the body needs to function properly.
The soluble fibres in green vegetables keep your cholesterol level low, while the non-soluble fibres serve as an aid to good digestion. In addition, the high level of chlorophyll in these green vegetables has a purifying and cleansing effect on the blood. Research has shown that most people fail to consume their recommended daily quantity of vegetables. Biotona bio Barley grass juice powder Raw is an ideal way to undo this deficiency.
Barley grass: purifies and restores
What makes barley grass powder so special? Its health-giving properties were first discovered in 1969 by the Japanese pharmacologist and researcher Y. Hagiwara. He was seriously ill and went in search of the ultimate crop that could stimulate the recovery powers of his own body. After studying some 200 different species of plants, he came to the conclusion that the juice of young barley grass was by far the richest source of natural nutrients. His discovery not only helped to cure him of his illness, but also made him famous in the United States, where barley grass became one of the most popular superfoods.
This is hardly surprising, in view of the fact that barley grass juice contains high concentrations of minerals, enzymes and vitamins, all in the right proportions.In addition, it is also rich in proteins, as well as having a high level of chlorophyll. All of these components promote good health and assist the discharge of accumulated waste products from the body. Last but not least, the large quantities of anti-oxidants in barley grass help to neutralise harmful free radicals. In short, using this juice quickly makes you feel fitter, healthier and more vital.

Where does barley grass come from?
Biotona only uses the young shoots of barley. This barley is cultivated in the desert of western Utah (USA) on soil that is extremely rich in minerals, in what was once a large volcanic lake. The water in this lake evaporated over the course of 30,000 years, during which time it continually deposited new layers of minerals and trace elements. As a result, it created one of the most fertile and most nutritious soils in the world.
What’s more, this high level of fertility was further supplemented by the continuous inflow of very pure mineral water from the surrounding mountains. The level of phytonutrients in the barley grass is at its highest immediately before the grain starts to form. This is when the young shoots are harvested and pressed. The unique (EverRaw®) process used by Biotona to extract all the juice and convert it into powder takes just two hours. During this process, the juice is not heated above body temperature, so that all the grass’s beneficial nutrients are retained.
Did you know that the pressing of young grain shoots to release their juice also releases all their many phytonutrients? In powder made from the juice of fully grown grass, the nutritional components are mainly locked in cellulose fibres, which cannot be properly digested by the body and are therefore discharged again with almost no benefit.
A shake or smoothie with Biotona bio Barley grass juice powder Raw or a Biotona bio Barley grass juice powder Raw shot can help to still your hunger and both are an ideal ‘green’ energy booster. However, it is recommended not to drink your green grass smoothie immediately before or after a meal, since this hinders the body’s ability to absorb all the grass’s beneficial components. The powder can also be added to cold dishes and preparations like pesto and dip sauces, and even to soups (although it should not be boiled).
How much barley grass can you consume?
A dose of between 5 and 15 grams each day is more than sufficient. The powder is also ideal as part of a purification cure.
