Melrose Organic Barley Grass - Tablets

$12.95
Qty

    Melrose Clean Green Organic Barley Grass powder and tablets are wholesome green foods made from the powdered dehydrated leaves of organically grown young barley plants (Hordeum vulgare).

    Clean Green Barley grass powder is an excellent provider of green vegetable nutrition. It is a rich source of dietary fibre for good colon health and regularity. It is one of the few natural sources of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.

    The bright green colour reflects the abundance of chlorophyll, a source of magnesium. Chlorophyll is sensitive to light - our answer is to use light opaque containers to prevent photon oxidation. Not all barley grass leaves are harvested at their nutritional peak. Since 1935 scientists have known that the highest concentrations of nutrients are present for just a few critical days. By the time the young sprout reaches its nutritional peak it is between 6 and 8 inches tall. It then forms a joint that goes on to form the stalk of the grain.

    At harvest, only the top 10 centimetres of the grass are harvested because this section has the richest content of nutrients. Harvest occurs just prior to jointing. Once jointing occurs, the nutritional level in the leaves begins to drop as the shoot's nutrients are used in the growth and development of the head of the grain. After low temperature warm air drying, the grass is powdered in a special air mill at room temperature.
