The Barley F.A.Q
The cereal grass promotional literature of the 1950s claimed that cereal grasses contain every nutrient known to be required by humans, except vitamin D, which is made in the skin. Independent laboratory analyses show that a wide variety of nutrients are contained in dehydrated cereal grasses. Some of these nutrients are quite concentrated; others are present only in small amounts. These nutrients are combined by nature to provide a uniquely potent food.
Dehydrated barley grass powders, tablets and capsules are not multi-vitamin pills - they are a concentrated combination of nutrients. As we have seen, the nutrients found in these foods work together to benefit the body as a whole.
It is interesting, and rather amazing, to see how the variety of nutrients in barley grass work together to support the functions of each other. A closer look at this phenomenon makes a good case for relying on natural foods, rather than artificial vitamin pills, as sources of vitamins and minerals.
For example, vitamin C aids in the absorption of calcium and iron. Iron is required to convert beta-carotene to vitamin A. Calcium and pyridoxine help absorb vitamin B12, which, in turn, is essential for the activation of folic acid. All of these nutrients are found together in barley grass, along with others, which support complimentary functions.
Green foods have been an essential part of the human diet for thousands, perhaps millions, of years. Today, we are able to identify many of the specific nutrients found in green foods, and the reasons why we can't do without them. Even with all of this information, we may only be beginning to understand why green foods are so good for us.

Why Santé Barley Juice?
Fresh barley juice contains one of the broadest spectrums of nutrients of green plants (well over 165 naturally occurring nutrients!). Barley juice contains 'naturally occurring' vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein, chlorophyll, antioxidants and numerous other phytochemicals (the stuff found in plants). In whole-food form all the nutrients work together synergistically yielding results that simply cannot occur in the body from isolated vitamin/mineral supplements. There is absolutely no replacement for naturally occurring whole foods. Scientists have found this when studying phytochemicals. Scientists have learned that phytochemicals increase our resistance to disease and boost immunity. But scientists don't know why phytochemicals seem to lose their disease-fighting powers when they are isolated from the plant. Bottom line is God didn't provide us with flavonoid plants, superoxide dismutase plants, vitamin A plants etc. He provided us with plants loaded with all the nutrients needed to satisfy our mouths with good things so that our youth would be renewed like the eagles! Barley juice is God's provision for better health, more energy, greater endurance! Numerous scientific studies support barley juice health benefits and thousands of anecdotal reports (personal experiences) confirm their findings.
Santé Pure Barley contains 5 times more beta carotene, almost 3 times more calcium, 4 times more chlorophyll, more enzymes, more amino acids (over twice the protein), more antioxidants (SOD, superoxide dismutase, is as much as 400% times greater!). Peroxidase, an enzyme used as a marker of freshness is 11 times greater. Lutonarin, a powerful antioxidant, is 28.9 times greater. These are all sample measurements and since Santé Barley comes from freshly cut barley leaves actual amounts can vary. Most folks notice a difference in how they feel within a day to as much as a couple weeks of using Santé Barley.

Background - For over 20 years scientists have demonstrated a probable link between various chronic diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and the actual aging process itself - to free radical damage. Antioxidants, on the other hand, are chemical compounds that have been shown to prevent, stop, or reduce oxidative damage.
What is an antioxidant?
An antioxidant is any substance that reduces oxidative damage (damage due to oxygen) such as that caused by free radicals. There are hundreds of different antioxidant compounds that include various vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and phytochemical antioxidants. Since scientists don't know every antioxidant in a plant, a test was developed that indicates the total antioxidant potential.
ORAC, what is that?
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is a standardized test adopted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to measure the Total Antioxidant Potency of foods and nutritional supplements. It provides a very precise way of establishing the Free Radical destroying or neutralizing power of a particular food supplement or compound. Whole foods that score high in an antioxidant assay called ORAC are recognized to protect cells and their components from damage by oxygen radicals. The ORAC standard is necessary because thousands of antioxidants exist in foods making it impossible to measure each individual antioxidant. TOTAL ORAC FN provides an excellent method of determining the overall antioxidant potency of foods.
Numerous government and private agencies are now recommending 5-9 servings of vegetables and fruit per day. Why? Scientists have learned that phytochemicals, including antioxidants, increase our resistance to disease and boost immunity. But scientists don't know why phytochemicals seem to lose their disease-fighting powers when they are isolated from the plant (as with antioxidant supplements). Bottom line is God didn't provide us with beta carotene plants, superoxide dismutase plants, vitamin E plants etc. He provided us with plants containing thousands of nutrients that work synergistically in our bodies providing optimum health. The most effective way of getting these powerful antioxidants into the body is from whole plant food sources.
What antioxidants are known to be in Santé Barley?
Santé Barley contains numerous substances known to be antioxidants, too many to list here. Some of the largest contributors would be beta-carotene, chlorophyll, superoxide dismutase (SOD)*, catalase, Lutonarin (7-O-GIO), Saponarin (7-O-GIV), Polyphenol oxidase, vitamin E, Phosphorus, and Zinc. Note: These are not ingredients added to Santé Barley but they are naturally occurring nutrients found in Santé Barley.

Santé Barley State-of-the-Art Technology yielding the best barley juice powder ever. God made the barley leaf densely nutritious, full of antioxidants. Something man has no idea how to do - God is awesome! Harvesting at the right stage of growth and optimum weather conditions provides the highest antioxidant and overall nutrition content.
Why Barley is Good for following illnesses?
Barley grass is said to have 30 times more vitamin B1 and 11 times the amount of calcium than there is in cow’s milk, 6.5 times as much carotene and nearly 5 times the iron content of spinach, close to seven times the vitamin C in oranges, four times the vitamin B1 in whole wheat flour, and 80 micrograms of vitamin B12 per 100 grams of dried barley plant juice.
Barley grass is very high in organic sodium, which dissolves calcium deposited on the joints and also replenishes organic sodium in the lining of the stomach. This aids digestion by improving the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. People with arthritis have used celery juice for years because of the organic sodium it contains (28mg per 100grms), but compare this to the amount of organic sodium in barley grass (775mg per 100 grams)!
Barley grass, at the time it is harvested to make juice, is about 45 percent protein. It has almost twice as much protein as an equivalent amount of wheat germ and about five times the minerals which accompany animal protein, in addition the protein in barley grass doesn't come burdened with fat.
Enzymes (barley grass is believed to contain up to 1,000 of them) are the necessary regulators of the body, without them our cells could not function and we would perish. Barley grass has one of the highest natural levels of enzyme SOD (superoxide dismutase), which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells against toxic free radicals, thought to be a primary culprit in aging.
Barley grass also contains one of the most amazing nutrients, “chlorophyll “(liquid oxygenated sunshine), a natural detoxifier that rids the intestines of stored toxins.
Sure, you don't have to drink green grass juices to get chlorophyll; it is present in all dark green, leafy vegetables. But the question is “ how many servings of spinach, kale, collards, mustard greens, or turnip and beet tops, do you eat everyday?" Some people eat none…ever! And for those who do eat them regularly, there is, after all, a limit to the amount of spinach, kale and the likes someone can eat.
Getting chlorophyll by taking barley grass is as easy as mixing 1-2 tsp, two times a day, in water or you favourite juice. For those who want to spend even less time getting their essential nutrients, simply take barley grass capsules or tablets with a glass of water.
Importance of green foods:
The importance of green foods in our diet is now being validated scientifically. Dehydrated cereal grasses compare favourably with other greens in respect to both nutrients and cost. It is an excellent and convenient source of green food nutrients.
Green food nutrients support healthy blood and circulation. Iron, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin B12, pyridoxine and protein are all vital for the formation and maintenance of adequate levels of hemoglobin and red blood cells. Chlorophyll may also be beneficial in these processes. In addition, chlorophyll, vitamin K, and calcium are all involved in blood clot formation and breakdown.
Users of barley grass have also found it useful as an aid in weight loss and good for the heart, healing of ulcers, correcting blood sugar problems and, most of all, as a general tonic.
Dehydrated Barley Grass vs. Man Made Supplements
When you walk into a health food store or pharmacy you might feel over-whelmed by the variety of supplements available to you. The vitamins, minerals and amino acids are available individually, or in creative combinations with other supplements.
There are supplements to build muscles, reduce stress, grow thicker hair, detoxify, raise energy levels and so on. One of the most popular supplements these days is the multivitamin/ mineral combination. All you have to do is to pop a pill or two daily and no need to worry, right? Wrong!
Plants that grow in nature and are used as human food contain hundreds of compounds. These compounds interact with each other and with our digestive tract and blood stream. These combinations of nutrients and other factors found in natural foods bear little resemblance to those found in a chemical, man made supplement, such as pills, for example.
In nature, there is no such thing as 2000 mg. of calcium, or vitamin C, isolated into a single pill. Low-dose supplements may fill some nutrient gaps, and mega-dose supplements may have therapeutic value, but neither can come close to replacing our need for natural food nutrition.
For over fifty years, the beneficial effects of adding cereal grasses to the feed rations of test animals could not be duplicated by adding any, or all, of the known isolated chemical components of those foods. The results of many studies, which demonstrate the value of green vegetables in the prevention of human diseases, cannot be explained in terms of the individual nutrients they are known to contain.
