In the juice of young barley, practically all the nutrients that the human body needs to function can be found. 

What matters is not the exact amount, but the fact that this product contains a complex of nutrients that work together. The nutrients support each other’s absorption and usability. For example, some nutrients protect each other from destruction due to the action of aggressive acids in the stomach. Barley drink is 2 times more effective than spinach in restoring the acid-alkaline balance, and is most complete alkaline food. Barley also contains vitamins that activate the enzymes that help prevent diseases and pathological conditions. 

Young barley is high in beta-carotene, vitamin C, E and the B vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6, as well as biotin, folic acid, pantothenic acid and choline, a nutrient related to vitamin B. We often suffer from a vitamin deficiency due to the predominance of processed foods and the fact that some of our foods lose their nutrients before they reach the table.

The content of vitamin C in a freshly grated radish exposed to air drops by one half in less than 5 minutes. The amount of vitamins B1 and B2 in food also drops dramatically during cooking. However, the vitamins in Green Ways Barley remain almost intact. Without enzymes, all vital functions are disrupted – digestion, respiration, movement, healing, etc. Scientists have identified more than 3,000 enzymes within the human body. 

In 1979, at the General Meeting of Japanese Pharmaceutical Companies, it was stated that green barley extract contains more than 20 enzymes, and subsequent studies have revealed still more.

Young barley is extremely rich in minerals and trace elements, which are contained in an organic form, i.e. in a state very usable by the body. All minerals are contained in barley in favourable proportions. In just one gram of barley, the following minerals and trace elements can be found: potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, chromium, iodine, cobalt, manganese, copper, selenium, sulphur, sodium, calcium, zinc and iron.

The complex nature of barley juice also relates to its content of all twenty important amino acids, including essential ones, which are necessary for the construction of body proteins. These amino acids are: Cysteine, Phenylalanine, Glycine, Histidine, Tryptophan, Methionine, Isoleucine, Tyrosine, Serine, Threonine, Arginine, Proline, Valine, Lysine, Alanine, Leucine, aspartic acid and glutamic acid.
