Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is it? BarleyLife® Xtra combines eighteen fruits and vegetables with young barley grass, one of the most nutritious plants on earth.

Q: How much does it cost? It depends. Let me tell you how it comes. They have several options, depending on what you want.

The retail price of BarleyLife® Xtra is $67.50.

If you like buying in bulk, they have a bargain hunter package - six canisters for $390.

You also have the option of becoming a Member and getting it at wholesale.

You know how Costco™ and Sam's Club™ have an annual membership? And then you get things at a special member price?

This works like that.

For a one-time fee of $20, you get a membership, which allows you to get BarleyLife® Xtra at the wholesale price of $52.00 and save money.

The Member price for the six-canister bargain hunter package is $300, which comes to $50 per canister.

Note: On your first order, when you buy $100 or more, they waive the $20 application fee and you get your membership for free.

Note: If you sign-up for the monthly auto-ship, you get an additional five percent discount on orders of $100 or more. On orders of $300 or more, you get an additional ten percent discount.

Q: Will BarleyLife® Xtra work for me? I don't know if it will work for you or not, but what if it does?

What if it works for you the way it has for me and my family?

That's why I say, No Promises, No Problems. Since you're unique, I have no idea how concentrated nutrition will work for you.

The only way to know how anything will work is for you to try it.



Q: Why do you take BarleyLife® Xtra? When I was in college, my grandfather died of cancer. (My grandmother also died of cancer.) After eight months of chemotherapy and Hospice, he passed away in his home.

I was there the morning they took away his lifeless body.

A few years later, a friend of mine died of leukemia when he was only thirty-two years old. A high school math teacher and baseball coach, he left behind a wife who was eight months pregnant.

Then after being hooked up to an oxygen machine for eight years, my father died of cancer.

He needed help for the simplest of things, such as getting out of his chair or going to the bathroom.

Unable to work or play with his grandchildren, my dad was miserable in what should have been his golden years.

After these experiences, I decided, "I don't want to end up like that."

And that's why I take BarleyLife® Xtra.


Q: How long have you been taking BarleyLife® Xtra? I've been using BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra for over twenty years.

It all started when I saw what happened to my friend, Janice Gravely. By all rights, she should be pushing up daises.

By the time she was seventy-five years old, Mrs. Gravely had several diseases that often go along with advanced years.

In fact, her health was so bad, her family considered getting a full-time nurse. Then one day a friend educated her about health and nutrition. So Mrs. Gravely changed her diet and added BarleyLife® to her daily routine.

Gradually, she turned her health around - and never did get that nurse. 

Today she is ninety-seven years old and still going strong.

Then after we were married, my wife, Laura, started taking BarleyLife®.

About a year later, while driving to work one morning, everything was blurry. She thought her eyesight had gotten worse.

When she took off her glasses, to her surprise, she could perfectly see.

It's been eighteen years now and she still does not need to wear glasses.

Laura also took BarleyLife® during her pregnancy with our son, Brady. So he has been taking it since before he was born.

It’s been over eleven years now and Brady is one healthy critter!


Q: How do they make BarleyLife® Xtra? It's made by taking nutrient-rich plants like barley grass, carrots and broccoli and juicing them. It's then made into a powder.

When consumed, the nutrients are absorbed into your body as if you had eaten the fruits and vegetables whole.

Note: Numerous green drinks have flooded the marketplace over the years, often labeled "green super foods."

They're nothing more than milled grass or finely ground dried grass, which is cheap to make, has minimal nutrients, and a high profit margin.

It’s the equivalent to drinking yard grass clippings.

On the other hand, thirty-seven years has been invested into perfecting the process of making BarleyLife® Xtra, including cutting, juicing, spray-drying, and vacuum-sealing the young barley plants, within minutes after they are harvested.

This is what separates BarleyLife® Xtra from the Amazon, eBay and grocery store cheapies.


Q: What’s the best way to take BarleyLife® Xtra? It is best absorbed when taken on an empty stomach. Also, do not take BarleyLife® Xtra with acidic juices like orange juice, nor with soft drinks or coffee, as these tend to destroy the nutrients and inhibit absorption.

When giving BarleyLife® Xtra to our son, we mix it with apple and white grape juice in a blender bottle, along with purified water.

When I take BarleyLife® Xtra, I use a spoon and swallow it with water. You can also mix it in a glass of water and drink it.

Update: Our son, Brady, no longer uses juice to take his BarleyLife® Xtra. He now puts the green powder on a spoon, swishes it around in his mouth with water, and then swallows it.

Q: How is BarleyLife® Xtra sweetened? BarleyLife® Xtra is naturally sweetened with fruit and vegetable juices, along with stevia, which is made from the stevia plant leaves. The stevia and fruits act on the sweet taste buds in the front of the mouth. This provides a sweeter taste, without adding a lot of sugars.

One serving of BarleyLife® Xtra provides a single gram of natural sugar.

Q: Is there any fiber in BarleyLife® Xtra? No. Most supplements contain fiber because it's a cheap filler. You end up getting less of the expensive ingredients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics, etc.)

On the other hand, because BarleyLife® Xtra does not have fillers, you're getting nothing but concentrated nutrition.

BarleyLife® Xtra also does not contain pesticides, food coloring, processed sugar, synthetic stabilizers, starch, gluten, soy, wheat, corn, binders, or filler. There are no preservatives or other toxic additives.


Q: Why is BarleyLife® Xtra green? It's green because it has a lot of chlorophyll in it, a super-nutrient that:
  • Helps reduce body odor 
  • Cleanses your blood 
  • Detoxes your liver 
  • Cuts excess cholesterol, triglycerides and other blood lipids (fats) 
  • Has antioxidant (cancer fighters) properties 
  • Removes toxins from your body 
  • Helps with digestion 
  • Has wound-healing properties 
  • Strengthens your immune system 
  • Fights disease and more 
The chemical structure of chlorophyll (healer of sick cells) closely matches the hemoglobin in human blood. By taking BarleyLife® Xtra, your blood will carry much more oxygen.

Increased oxygen is beneficial for healthy red blood cells, breathing conditions, brain fogginess and more.

Q: How much vitamin C is in BarleyLife® Xtra? BarleyLife® Xtra delivers 34 percent of the daily requirement for vitamin C per serving.

Vitamin C is a critical nutrient for holding your muscles, bones and tissues together, protects against bruising and helps your body absorb iron and folate. It also keeps your gums healthy, promotes the healing of cuts, scrapes and wounds, protects against infection as well as cell-damaging free radicals.  

The acerola cherry in BarleyLife® Xtra is one of the highest available sources of natural vitamin C.

Q: What age groups can take BarleyLife® Xtra? BarleyLife® Xtra is good for everyone, from babies to teens to adults. Babies as young as two days old have been started on BarleyLife® Xtra (by dropper or tiny amount dry in their mouth).

We added a small amount to the bottled breast milk of our son, when he was only a few days old.

"These fruits and veggies are found in BarleyLife Xtra!"

Q: Do you have a list of all the ingredients in BarleyLife® Xtra? Juice powder of young barley plants, oligodextrin, apple juice solids, acerola cherry, stevia, fructooligosaccaride (chicory), natural cream flavor, cherry, malic acid, guar gum, natural apple flavor, brown rice, broccoli, carrot, natural cherry flavor, cranberry, grape, lemon, lime, orange, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry, tomato, kale and kelp.


Q: Is there any scientific proof that BarleyLife® Xtra really works? Research shows almost every single vitamin and mineral of value to human nutrition is in BarleyLife® Xtra. Following are five quick examples:
  • A study at John Hopkins Medical University found beta-carotene (Vitamin A) helps prevent cancer. These researchers say people who often eat green leafy vegetables have a much lower chance of getting cancer. Deep green, leafy vegetables are high in beta-carotene. BarleyLife® Xtra is extremely high in beta-carotene. It has 2½ times the beta carotene found in the same weight of raw carrots and twenty-five times that found in an equivalent weight of raw broccoli. 
  • Another study found there are over a thousand different live enzymes in BarleyLife® Xtra. One of those enzymes is super oxide dismutase (SOD). The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of the SOD enzyme in the body. They've also discovered by increasing the amount of SOD in your system, the body repairs itself more quickly, has less inflammation and acts as a preventive of cancer. 
  • Another enzyme found in BarleyLife® Xtra is P4D1. In laboratory tests, the P4D1 enzyme has been shown to eat the protein sheath off of cancer cells, allowing white blood cells to attack. One factor of whether or not a person develops clinical cancer depends on the ability of their immune system to destroy cancer cells. 
  • Yet another study by Cambridge researchers showed the likelihood of children developing asthma is significantly reduced by a diet high in antioxidants (cancer fighters). BarleyLife® Xtra is loaded with antioxidants. 
  • Finally, Indiana University School of Medicine at Ball State University conducted a study using thirty-two students. They wanted to determine whether or not the barley grass plant could strengthen the immune system. After seventy-one days, blood was drawn from each participant. It showed the immune system was statistically strengthened in the students and their immune systems had become stronger than at the beginning of the study. 

Q: Does BarleyLife® Xtra cure disease? BarleyLife® Xtra is not promoted as a product that cures disease. It's the human body that's the real miracle. It simply needs high-quality food to do its work. BarleyLife® Xtra is a high-quality food.

Q: Who makes BarleyLife® Xtra? BarleyLife® Xtra is made by The AIM Companies™, a thirty-seven year old company in Nampa, Idaho.

In 1982, AIM pioneered a way to juice plants such as carrots, beets and barley grass. The juice is then made into an easy to consume powder, delivering concentrated nutrition to your body.

Q: Is The AIM Companies™ a network marketing company? Yes, AIM is a no-nonsense company that focuses health and nutrition.

There is the option to do network marketing, if someone wants to do it.

However, I focus on getting customers. I use this website to bring information about BarleyLife® Xtra directly to people who want to learn more about it. The AIM Companies™ compensates me to do that, instead of setting up retail stores.

Anyway, I do not hype or hound anyone, in case you're worried about that. Fewer than one in a hundred people want to do any type of sales, so why annoy them and take a chance on losing a good customer?

I also do not try to convince or persuade anyone to become a customer. I simply find people who believe nutrition matters and makes a difference in their health.

The Bottom Line: If buying nutritional supplements from a network marketing company makes you feel at all uncomfortable, then you should not order BarleyLife® Xtra.


Q: How often do I have to order? You only order what you need. There is no monthly quota or required minimum order. You order what you want, when you want it.

Many folks are understandably skeptical of network marketing companies and concerned they'll have products coming to their house every month - even if they don't want them. An AIM membership is simply a wholesale number, like you get at Sam's Club™, which allows you to order products at the wholesale price and save money.

Q: Does BarleyLife® Xtra come with any type of guarantee?  BarleyLife® Xtra comes with an absolute satisfaction, no fine print guarantee. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied, simply return the unused portion within thirty days, for a full one hundred percent money-back refund. No hassles and no hard feelings.

The Detriments of BarleyLife® Xtra 

You might be thinking, "All of this sounds good. But what are the negatives about BarleyLife Xtra?"

The following are some possible detriments I've come up with concerning this nutritious green powder:
  • Some people may not like the taste of BarleyLife® Xtra (The original BarleyLife® is available in veggie capsules.) 
  • 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 at your home. (There is an option available for a monthly auto-ship.) 
  • The green powder may not look appetizing to some 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 small number of people may feel worse after taking 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 tiredness, a rash or a headache. This can last a few days. 
  • The kelp, vitamin K and a few other vitamins and minerals found in BarleyLife® Xtra can interfere with some medications. As long as your doctor has not forbidden you from eating salads or green vegetables, you can consume BarleyLife® Xtra. 
  • Some people may feel the cost of BarleyLife® Xtra does not fit their budget. You should not buy products if you are unable to afford them. (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® Xtra is best absorbed on an empty stomach. It may not always be convenient to wait until you have an empty stomach. (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. People who are extremely sick need to use BarleyLife® Xtra for at least three months to notice a difference and feel confident they're doing the right thing for themselves and their family.
BarleyLife® Xtra is not marketed as a magic bullet or 'miracle' drug. It is part of an overall healthy lifestyle. Removing sugar, grains, and vegetable oils from your diet, along with eating well, drinking well, and sleeping well, goes a long way towards putting the odds for good health in your favor.


What People Are Saying

"When we lived in San Antonio, my wife and I drove down to the border town of Larado. This elderly lady was there with her hands and fingers constricted like claws, from arthritis. I was amazed at how bad they were.

I suggested she start taking large amounts of BarleyLife. When I say large amounts, I'm talking about five to seven tablespoons throughout the day.

We went back several months later. She comes up to me with tears of joy running down her face, saying in Spanish, 'Look! Look!' and freely moving her fingers around. 'Look at what this has done for me!' " - Darryl Hicks, Apple Valley, Minnesota 

"I do not have eczema any more. I took AIM's barley leaf juice powder for three months and it disappeared." - Cappi Sue Peters, Lincoln City, Oregon

"When it was first introduced to me, I had several health problems, including high blood pressure. All those problems disappeared." - Cheryl Huxter, Steady Brook, Newfoundland, Canada 

"I suffered from reflux every day, so bad that I dreaded eating anything. And I'm a nurse! I'm now pain free for the first time in years." - Lissie Joyner, Nashville, North Carolina

"Mental clarity and sharpness were the first benefits I noticed. My slurred speech improved and I could again get my tongue to speak what my brain was thinking. My energy greatly improved so I no longer needed daily naps." - Deborah May, Bigfork, Montana 

"Before my husband and I started taking AIM's green barley juice, he was suffering from leg pain. The pain was so bad, he had to lie down on the couch with his legs raised to relieve the pain. Frank started taking the green barley juice in January. No more pain! No more lying down with the legs up! He feels great!" - Renee Grainger, Belton, Missouri 

"My son came home from school with chicken pox in his throat. The doctor said it would take ten days to recover. But Eugene was in pain. So I gave him green barley juice three times a day. After three days, the chicken pox was gone." - Bella Vladimirsky, McAllen, Texas

"I use gloves to add wood through the top of my wood stove and I have burnt myself many times over the years. After being burnt one time too many, I decided to see if BarleyLife would help. I put some spit on the burn and added BarleyLife, making a green paste. Within five minutes, the pain was gone. The next day there was no burn mark." - Karl Backhaus, Holland Centre, Ontario, Canada

"BarleyLife gave me my life back when I was miserable. Now I feel normal again. Thanks from the bottom of my heart." - Terri Howell, Helena, Montana

Mrs. Gravely and Paul Eilers 

"I no longer suffer from osteoporosis, hypothyroidism, breast disease, bladder control problems, locked up joints, dry skin and nails, muscle cramps, and lack of energy. I now have a new body! I have energy and endurance to keep up with my four adult children and nine grandchildren. I feel wonderful!"Janice Gravely, Rocky Mount, North Carolina

Note: It was Mrs. Gravely who introduced me to BarleyLife®.

When she was 75 years old, the health of Mrs. Gravely was so bad her family considered getting a full-time nurse. Then one day a friend educated her about nutrition. So she changed her diet and added BarleyLife® as well as other AIM nutrition to her daily routine.

Gradually, she turned her health around - and never did get that nurse. Today Mrs. Gravely is 96 years old and still going strong.


P.S. Everyone knows we need fruits and vegetables to be healthy. The latest guidelines call for adults to get at least nine servings per day.

Can you eat enough fruits and veggies every day for good health - even if you like them?

P.P.S. BarleyLife® Xtra is for people who believe nutrition matters. They know they should eat more fruits and veggies every day, but don't because they're busy.

Does that sound like you?



If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with BarleyLife® Xtra, you get a full 100 percent money-back refund. No hassles. No small print. No hard feelings.
