FAQs - Process & Usage

How is barley juice powder processed?

Barley grass is organically grown without using any chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. The plants are harvested when the leaves contain the widest spectrum of nutrients, and low temperature processing is used to convert the barley grass into concentrate juice powder.

How do you take barley grass?
It’s best to sip it slowly on an empty stomach, either 20 minutes before a meal or 2 hours after, so that the nutrients can be assimilated easily without the presence of other foods. Take either cold or room temperature liquid, as hot liquid will break down the live enzymes.

How’s the taste?
Very good in comparison to other green juices. Being a natural product there can be wide ranges in taste. When you prepare to eat a watermelon, a carrot, tomato or other produce the question always posed is, “What will it taste like?”.
Santé Barley may vary in taste from time to time. If you are new to barley juice we suggest starting out with small amounts to let your body get use to it. Many people like the taste but others with more sensitive taste buds like it mixed with fruit juice.
However if you don’t want to know what it tastes like, Santé Barley is also available in veggie capsules providing the same wonderful results without the approval of your taste buds.

Why should we consume barley grass on an empty stomach?
To enable the nutrients to be assimilated easily without the presence of other foods.

Can I take barley grass while taking medication?
As long as your health practitioner has not forbidden you to eat salads or green vegetables, you can consume barley grass.

If I take barley grass, should I also take other supplements?
There is no need for you to take another supplement because barley grass provides the wide range of essential nutrients and is so finely balanced.

How to consume barley grass?
It is advisable to consume 1teaspoon (3g) twice a day 30 minutes before a meal as barley grass works best on an empty stomach. For those who are ill it is advisable to increase the amount to 1 teaspoon 3 times a day and for people with quite severe illness this can be increased the serving size depending on your needs and state of health. Take either cold or room temperature water and consume it immediately or it will lose its nutrients due to oxidation.

Can Santé Pure Barley be mixed in a hot beverage?
Because heat and acidity can affect enzymatic activity, it is recommended that Santé Pure Barley not be taken in any of the following: cranberry or prune juice, carbonated drinks, or hot drinks.

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.

Is there a difference between Santé Barley Pure capsules and Santé Pure Barley juice powder?
Both are identical except that because the powder form is instantly soluble, it will be assimilated more rapidly than the capsules and some digestion of the soluble powder may occur in the mouth and esophagus as well.
