Full Description and Detailed Information
Water vapor and low temperatures allow our barley grains to sprout before they are fermented, dried, and powdered. Why? Seeds and grains lock away nutrients that are reserved to give the plant a fighting chance once it begins growing. These energy stores account for the massive growth a seedling undergoes in the first days after sprouting. It also explains how a tiny sprout has the ability to push aside comparatively large amounts of dirt and rocks before it reaches sunlight and starts making its own food. Sprouting activates and unlocks these vital nutrients while fermentation makes them more bioavailable.
- Increased absorption
- Improves digestion
- Provided probiotics
Barley is rich in complex carbohydrates that break down slowly, are absorbed slowly, and burn slowly. This sounds like barley won’t supply much energy, but it actually means the opposite. This slow use of carbs provides a steady, long-term stream of glucose to power muscles and the brain, and nourish cells throughout the body. This doesn’t cause the spikes and valleys that come from other carbohydrates which result in ups, downs, fatigue, and crashes.
- Provides long-term energy for increased stamina and endurance
- Supplies the fuel to repair and rebuild after workouts
Blood Sugar Control
Barley is also very low on the glycemic index, much lower than other grains, and the beta-glucans in barley actually lower the index of anything barley is added to.
Whole grains like barley and brown rice are rich in fiber.
Barley has been studied often for its abilities to lower cholesterol. The beta-glucans and fiber in barley have been linked to cholesterol levels in multiple studies.
Beta-glucans act as immunomodulators. They trigger the immune system to be more active, vigilant, and effective. Beta-glucans stimulate macrophages and lymphocytes which seek out and destroy viruses and malfunctioning cells.
- Encourages the immune cells to communicate with one another
