The key markers used to determine quality in BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra are chlorophyll, protein, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase.
Chlorophyll is a marker of freshness. The amount of chlorophyll in a product indicates how green and healthy the grass was that produced it. The benefits of chlorophyll fall into three main categories:
1. Purifying: Chlorophyll has an antibacterial effect on wounds and an anti-yeast effect in the digestive tract. It appears to counteract many toxins in the body. Chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.
2. Inflammation: Chlorophyll has the effect of reducing inflammation. Thus it can be used to help counteract the effects of arthritis, stomach ulcers, colitis, sore throats and other inflammatory conditions.
3. Nourishing: Chlorophyll builds blood - it is almost identical to hemoglobin; it helps promote healthy intestinal flora and assists liver cleansing.
Chlorophyll has been found to be successful in the treatment of heart disease, atherosclerosis, sinusitis, osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone marrow), pyorrhea and depression.
Chlorophyll may also block the genetic changes which cancer-causing substances produce in cell nuclei. Other benefits that have been found in the use of chlorophyll are:
- Treatment of allergies
- Aid in absorption of nutrients
- Reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers
- Overcome chronic ear inflammation and infections
- Neutralize strep infections
- Hasten skin grafting
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is another marker of quality. SOD is an enzyme with powerful antioxidant abilities. BarleyLife® has a high level of naturally occurring SOD. The known benefits of SOD are:
- A super scavenger enzyme, that destroys damaging free radicals
- Reported to slow down the aging process
- Enables our body to repair itself more quickly
- Acts as an anti-inflammatory enzyme (good news for those with arthritis)
- Reduces the number and severity of abnormal hearth rhythms, called arrhythmias
- Acts as a cell protector, reducing changes of degenerative disease
Peroxidase is the last marker of quality. This is another enzyme that is present in BarleyLife® and is strong indicator of the freshness of the product.
The presence of these 'markers' in BarleyLife® prove that the standards used at every step of production are protecting precious vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and amino acids needed for better health.
BarleyLife® other important benefits:
P4D1 is an important substance found in barley grass. Found by Yasuo Hotta, a biologist from the University of California, P4D1:
- Has strong anti-peptic ulcer and anti-inflammatory function - but with non of the side effects associated with ordinary anti-inflammatory drugs
- Has been shown to repair the DNA in the cells of the body
- Has been found to suppress inflammation of the pancreas and oral cavity, fissuring at the corners of the mouth, dermatitis and colitis
- Makes SOD even more effective
Our bodies need a proper acid-alkaline balance to enjoy optimal health. This balance is constantly sabotaged by a diet of mostly acidic foods such as processed foods, especially sugar, table salt, soft drinks and refined grains. A diet that has a high amount of these foods causes toxicity and a loss of minerals, which are all factors in poor health. This loss of minerals is the cause of a number of new diseases we see today.
Along with a healthy balanced diet, BarleyLife® is able to improve the acid-alkaline balance because of its alkalizing effect. This is a great asset, since most Americans eat mostly acidic foods.

What People Are Saying
"Barley grass…the most complete preventive medicine available…one of the ultimate gifts of God." - Dr. James Balch, Prescription for Nutritional Healing
"Barley grass is one of the most incredible products of this decade. It improves stamina, clarity of thought and reduces addiction to things that are bad for you. It also improves the texture of the skin, and heals the dryness associated with aging." - Dr. Howard Lutz, director of the Institute of Preventive Medicine, Washington, D.C.
"Leukemia cancer cells were exposed to dehydrated barley grass extract, which killed virtually all of them. Researchers then subjected brain cancer cells to the extract. It eradicated 30-50% of these cells. In the third trial, the extract inhibited the growth of three types of prostate cancer by up to 100%." - Allen L. Goldstein, Ph.D., chairman of the Biochemistry Dept., George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Washington, D.C.
"I test my blood monthly for hemoglobin, red blood cell count, and other markers, and my most recent test revealed the best results of my life. These numbers were far greater than after training at altitude for eight weeks. My physiologist and coaches are scratching their heads, thinking that I had a blood transfusion. I know that BarleyLife has made a major impact on my health and performance in a very short amount of time." - Debbi Lawrence, former Olympic race walker
"After using BarleyLife for just a few days, my husband, Alex, has a pain-free shoulder - something that he had dealt with for almost two years. His chiropractor told him that it was a frozen shoulder. He had received treatment six months ago, but was left with pain and limited mobility. BarleyLife has to be so loaded with antioxidant acting enzymes that his body could get his shoulder back to normal so quickly." - Sandy Coombs, Crescent City, Florida
In 1982, The AIM Companies™ developed a way to juice young barley plants and air dry them, preserving their valuable nutrients. It’s then made into a powder for easy consumption. Why not see how BarleyLife® works for you and your family?
