Barley Grass

Three words of advice – START DRINKING GRASS!

Barley grass offers more protein than a sirloin steak, five times the amount of iron as broccoli, seven times more vitamin C than orange juice and 11 times more calcium than milk!

– The number one reason I love Barley grass so much is because it helps to alkalise your body and therefore balance your PH levels. Your bodies Ph levels play a big role in fighting disease and making sure everything is functioning correctly.

I use the powder form which I buy at whole foods – ‘Naturya Organic barley Powder’ you can find it at most health shops or online. I stir 1-2 tsps into a glass of water and drink in the morning before a fresh juice .
