BarleyLife offers a convenient and economical way to supplement the vegetables so often missing from our diets. AIM's original barley juice powder was developed by world-renowned scientist and researcher, Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara. BarleyLife took technology another level to produce and even better barley juice powder. AIM's Barley juice powder is backed by decades of product development plus more than 20 years of university research into its effectiveness. Because of this research and the unique processes used to create BarleyLIfe, it has long been the industry leader, used by more people than all the other green juice products combined.
Made from the juice of young barley leaves, BarleyLife contains a wide spectrum of nutrients, including more than a dozen vitamins as well as enzymes, amino acids, chlorophyll and numerous antioxidants. By simply mixing a teaspoon of BarleyLife in a glass of water or in your favorite juice, you can conveniently enjoy a nutritious "salad in a glass."

Barley grass is one of the green grasses--the only vegetation on earth that can supply sole nutritional support from birth to old age. Agronomists place this ancient cereal grass as being cultivated as early as 4000 B.C., probably in the dry lands of southwestern Asia. In the West, barley grass was first known for the barley grain it produces; there is written mention of the grain as early as 2800 B.C. in Babylon.
Before green grasses undergo the reproductive cycle that creates the grains they are in the grass stage, and the grasses contain about the same vitamins and minerals as dark green vegetables. When grasses are harvested at a young age, they have a different chemical makeup from their adult counterparts. For example, wheat grass has 32 g of protein per 100 g, while wheat flour has only 13 g per 100 g. Wheat grass has about 23,000 International Units (IUs) of vitamin A per 100 g, while wheat flour has none. We can see then that the young grasses offer us great nutrition.
Barley grass is considered the most nutritional of the green grasses. After studying green plants for decades, Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara said, "It was clear to me, then, that the leaves of the cereal grasses provide the nearest thing this planet offers to the perfect food. For reasons of palatability, higher nutrient content, and favorable harvesting features, green barley stands out as the best among these."
Nutrients in barley grass
Amino acids and proteins
Barley grass contains eighteen amino acids, including the eight essential ones-that is, the amino acids that we must get from our diet. The body cannot produce them itself.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are the major constituents of every cell and body fluid (except urine and bile) and are thus necessary for the continual cell building, cell regeneration, and energy production that we need for life. An added benefit of the green barley leaf proteins is that they are polypeptides; smaller proteins that can be directly absorbed by the blood, where they promote cell metabolism (the chemical changes that we need to live) and neutralize substances that are bad for our health.
Enzymes, vitamins, and minerals
Green barley leaves contain a multitude of the body's spark plugs, enzymes. Enzymes are the catalysts for the body's essential chemical reactions and are responsible for our digestive processes, for providing cellular energy, and for antioxidant effects.
Despite their importance, most people do not get the enzymes they need. This is because heat destroys enzymes, and most of our foods, whether cooked at home or processed, are heated and the enzymes destroyed. Dr. Hagiwara believed that there may be thousands of active enzymes in green barley. This belief is based on tests that use the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) as a marker enzyme. If the marker enzyme is found in an active state in abundance, it can be safely assumed that other enzymes found in green grasses will also be in an active state. In the production of BarleyLife AIM constantly monistors SOD content to assure the highest quality powder possible.
Green barley leaves also contain a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals. See below for a list of these.
Green barley grass also contains chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has been studied for its potential as a deodorant, in stimulating tissue growth, and in stimulating red blood cells in connection with blood sup- ply. Perhaps most remarkable is the similarity between chlorophyll and the red pigment in blood. Research in the 1940s demonstrated that the two pigments react the same during breakdown. BarleyLife is tested for chlorophyll and a minimum guaranteed amount is shown on the label of each jar.
According to an article in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (Jan. 4,1995), chlorophyll fed to laboratory animals reduces absorption of three dietary carcinogens: heterocyclic amines (found in cooked muscle meats), polycyclic hydrocarbons (found in smoked and barbecued foods), and aflatoxin (a mold on peanuts). The chlorophyll formed complex compounds with the carcinogens while they were still in the digestive tract, limiting their bioavailability. Chlorophyll has also been found to reduce fecal, urinary, and body odor in geriatric patients.
Alkalinity and more
Green barley grass has a high alkalizing effect, which helps keep the ratio between acidity and alkalinity in our body fluids balanced. Our cells cannot adequately function if the pH (which measures acidity and alkalinity) is not in a narrow range. Most processed foods are acidic, and when we consume too many of them, the acidity-alkalinity balance is upset.
Green barley grass contains buffer minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Buffer minerals neutralize acidic materials and can help people maintain a healthy acidity-alkalinity balance.
Research has unveiled many other possible benefits of green barley leaves. Extracted compounds may have hypercholesteromic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-ulcer properties. Lutonarin (7-O-GIO) and Saponarin (7-O-GIV) serve as very powerful antioxidants. Lutonarin is the superior antioxidant of the two and is found in high concentrations in BarleyLife. Research in New Zealand has shown that lutonarin and saponarin content in barley leaves increases with UV exposure. This indicates they may provide antioxidant protection against environmental stresses.
BarleyLife: A total food
BarleyLife captures the nutrients in green barley grass, and Barleylife's power is found in the combination of nutrients. Barleylife is a whole food concentrate; that is, it is as close to its natural state as possible and thus supplies the nutrients in a natural proportion. Barleylife should not be recognized by discussing the amount of its vitamins and minerals. The era of focusing on a single vitamin or mineral is gone . much more attention is being focused on biological phenomenon.
How to use Barleylife
* Some United States chemical associations recognize only 13 vitamins. However, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (from the International Union of Biochemistry) has identified 19 vitamins, and the Japanese Vitamin Academic Society has identified 17 vitamins.
** Vitamin P and Vitamin Fare considered citrus bioflavonoids and essential unsaturated fatty acids, respectively. Vitamin Bl2 is generally believed to come only from animal sources; however, independent analyses from Irvine Analytical Laboratories, as well as from the Resource Research Association, Office of Science and Technology, and Japan Food Analysis Center, indicate that green barley leaves contain B12.
*** There is not a standard method to analyze enzyme activities. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) has been used to measure enzyme activities. Lab analyses indicate that green barley extract contains active SOD. The presence of active SOD in green barley extract may indicate that other common green grass enzymes are found in active conditions.
Questions and Answers
What are the ingredients of BarleyLife?
BarleyLife contains the juice powder of young barley plants, brown rice oligodextrin, and kelp. These natural ingredients are teaming with naturally occurring phytonutrients - stuff our bodies crave but simply don't get enough of.
What is the difference between BarleyLife powder and capsules?
The capsules are made from the same BarleyLife powder. The label also shows the veggie capsule and small amounts of stearic acid and silicon dioxide. The capsules break down quickly in the stomach and folks experience the same results as with the BarleyLife powder provide the same amounts are taken.
What is oligodextrin?
BarleyLife now contains brown rice oligodextrin instead of corn maltodextrin. Brown rice oligodextrin offers the functional properties of maltodextrin with the benefits of native proteins and nutrients from brown rice that has always been a part of the BarleyLife formula. Oligodextrin added to the barley juice acts as a buffer between the enzymes and other molecules, stabilizing and maintaining the nutrients. The juice is spray-dried, using a special, low-temperature process. This preserves the delicate balance of vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients. AIM uses only
Oligodextrin is used to help stabilize and protect Barleylife. When the oligodextrin is sprayed on to barley juice, it forms a protective shield around the fragile nutrients. This shield is "broken" when you add a liquid and drink the product.
How is BarleyLife processed?
The barley used for Barleylife is grown in the USA without using any chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. The plants are harvested when the leaves contain the widest spectrum of nutrients, and a patented, low temperature process is used to convert the barley grass into Barleylife.
Can I take Barleylife while taking medication?
As long as your health practitioner has not forbidden you to eat salads or green vegetables, you can use Barleylife.
Is there anyone who should not use Barleylife?
BarleyLife is a whole-food concentrate, so most people should be able to take it. Those with severe medical problems or complications should consult a health care practitioner. Those on a restricted diet (especially in regard to “green foods”) should also consult a health care practitioner.
I started taking Barleylife and I feel worse. Why?
When you make a change in your diet, your body often goes through a cleaning known as detoxification. This can manifest itself in fatigue, rashes, and headaches. It is your body flushing out toxins. For more information, see the Detoxification data sheet.
What makes BarleyLife so smooth tasting?
A state-of-the-art, spray dryer delivers very small particles. The small particles result in maximum dispersion, providing more uniform distribution in liquid. The small particle is extremely soluble in liquid, producing less grittiness. The result is a smooth texture, great taste, and excellent solubility when mixed in water or juice.
BarleyLife XtraBarleyLife Xtra Info
What is Lo Han?
Lo Han, shortened from Lo Han Kuo (Siratia grosvenorii), is a member of the cucumber and melon family. Used for centuries in China, Lo Han is 300 times sweeter than sugar. This allows us to minimize the amount of natural flavoring added and maximize the nutrients from the barley juice, fruits, and vegetables while providing a delightfully sweet fruit taste.
Is there more vitamin C in BarleyLife Xtra than in the other varieties of BarleyLife?
Yes, the percentage of vitamin C per serving is larger in BarleyLife Xtra than other BarleyLife products. Acerola cherry powder, used in BarleyLife Xtra, is one of the richest sources of natural vitamin C. The 18 different fruits and vegetables used in BarleyLife Xtra bring their nutritional content to the mix, enhancing the nutritional profile, including increased levels of vitamin C at 34%.
