Inflammation, Sleep Problems and BarleyLife® Xtra

A meta-analysis, published in Biological Psychiatry, reported the findings of 72 journal articles, which recorded the sleep habits and inflammation markers of over 50,000 sleepers.

Those with sleep problems, such as people who don't get enough sleep, as well as those people who get too much sleep, had elevated levels of inflammatory markers [C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6)].

Inflammation is an immune system response that helps your body fight off infection and other illnesses. However, if the inflammation doesn't go away once it has done its important job, then it becomes detrimental to your health.

For example, chronic inflammation has been linked to heart disease, gut health, joint pain, and more.

If you are someone with sleep issues, there is a good possibility you may be suffering from chronic inflammation. This means poor quality of sleep may also be causing other health problems.

How to Make BarleyLife® Taste Better

"What does it taste like?"

"It tastes like grass."

That's was what I was told years ago, before my first serving of green barley grass. For many people, BarleyLife® is indeed an acquired taste.

After consuming it for almost twenty years, however, I can now take BarleyLife® as well as BarleyLife® Xtra with a spoon and simply drink it down with water.

If you're new to consuming this nutritious green powder, one way to make it taste better is to mix it with juice.

In a AIM blender bottle, mix apple and white grape juice. Then add BarleyLife® or BarleyLife® Xtra. Shake well and drink it.

Some people find this juice mixture to be too sweet for them. Instead, mix BarleyLife® Xtra with water in the blender bottle and consume it that way.

So experiment and see what works best for you.
