What Is BarleyMax?
BarleyMax is a certified organic whole-food concentrate made from the juice of young barley grass and alfalfa. It is kept enzymatically alive with low-temperature processing that does not damage heat sensitive nutrients.
What Makes BarleyMax Different?
BarleyMax is gently dehydrated below 106°F using a patented drying process to lock in nutritional potency and retain the highest enzyme activity of any juice powder you can buy.
BarleyMax provides a superior blend of vitamins A, E, and folate, protein, minerals including, zinc, manganese, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and potassium, essential amino acids, chlorophyll, flavonoids, many trace elements, antioxidants, plus a high level of enzymatic activity that is necessary for building new, strong, healthy and vital cells in your body.
Naturally occurring vitamins
BarleyMax doesn't rely on lab-created chemicals for it's nutritional values. Natural vitamins are always found in food as living complexes making them easier for your cells to absorb.
Rich amounts of macro and trace minerals
In balanced proportions, these give more cofactors for higher enzyme activity. Our research also indicates higher vitamin content in BarleyMax® than similar products.
An excellent source of antioxidants
Antioxidants help the body defend itself from free radicals, which play a large role in disease and aging. In a measure of total antioxidant capacity, BarleyMax® is the leading barley juice of all the products we have tested.
Even people with a sensitivity to the gluten in wheat and other grains can drink BarleyMax.
Chlorophyll has been shown to accelerate the healing of wounds with no toxic side effects, protect against chemicals and radiation, and to promote intestinal regularity.
Juice powder vs. freeze-dried grass
The plants used to make BarleyMax are juiced before they're dehydrated. Other juice powders just spray or freeze dry whole plants, leaving the fiber and killing the enzymes.
Some true juice products are sanitized in a way that kills beneficial bacteria. Our cleaning process retains naturally occurring bacteria your body needs.
Unique growing conditions
Our barley and alfalfa crops are organically grown on 900 acres of mineral-rich volcanic lakebed soil at an elevation of 5,000 feet. This promotes slower growth and incredible nutritional content.
The grass juice from this land has by far the highest solids content (BRIX) of any similar products, indicating the mineral-richness of the soil.
These crops are fertilized naturally with alfalfa chop and barley pulp (left over from juicing), and other organically-approved soil amendments and irrigated with deep source groundwater for maximum nutrient uptake.
We also practice crop rotation, allowing the soil to lie fallow every couple of years to rest and recharge.
What's so special about barley & alfalfa?
The nutritional excellence of barley grass has been revered since ancient times. Alfalfa is one of the most mineral-rich foods in the world, thanks to roots that grow up to 130 feet into the ground. The result is a fresh tasting, 100% organic and filler-free juice powder that gives you one of the widest spectrums of naturally occurring nutrients available in a single source.
