To help you with your decision making process, following are some possible detriments I’ve come up with concerning BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra:
- Some children and adults may not like the taste of BarleyLife® Xtra (The original BarleyLife® is available in veggie capsules.)
- BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra cannot be purchased at a retail store. So if you run out of it and don’t have a back-up jar, it takes five to seven days for your new order to arrive (monthly auto-ship option available).
- The green powder in BarleyLife® Xtra may not look appetizing to people. You may have trouble getting your child or spouse to even try it. (That’s why we put BarleyLife® Xtra in juice for our picky eater son.)
- A very small number of people might feel worse after taking BarleyLife® or BarleyLife® Xtra. This is due to a cleansing process known as detoxification, which is the body getting rid of toxins. A few people might experience fatigue, a rash or a headache. This lasts just a few days.
- The kelp, vitamin K as well as a few other vitamins and minerals found in green vegetables (and BarleyLife®) can interfere with some medications. As long as your doctor has not forbidden you from eating salads or green vegetables, you can consume BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra.
- Some people may feel the cost of BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra does not fit their budget. You should not buy products you cannot afford. (Cheap supplements are not good and good supplements are not cheap.) Quality is everything. No matter how little you pay, the most expensive supplement is one that doesn’t work.
- Because it’s real food, BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra are best absorbed on an empty stomach. It may not always be convenient to wait until your stomach is empty. (We take it first thing in the morning. Our son drinks his BarleyLife® Xtra in juice throughout the day.)
- Nutritional supplements typically take time to rebuild the body. They’re not a quick fix like drugs or surgery, which usually do not rebuild your body. Most people who are extremely sick usually need to use BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra for at least three months, to notice a difference or to feel more confident they are doing the right thing for themselves or their children.
