Barley grass juice powders are an amazing superfood supplement. As opposed to the simpler barley grass powder, barley grass JUICE powders are created by pressing the nutrient dense liquid from the young barley leaves, then dehydrating the juice at low temperatures to concentrate the nutrients. The grass powder is simply the harvested grass that is dried and then ground into powder. Barley grass has been found over the millennia to have great health benefits . This powder contains many valuable vitamins, minerals, and 20 amino acids including the 8 essential ones that the body cannot produce on its own. Below is a list of some of the top brands of barley grass powders and their special features.
8. Green Magma Organic Green Barley Grass Juice Extract 80g Powder
This product was developed by a doctor in Japan around 40 years ago. Since that time, it has been sold in over 50 countries around the world. The recommended dose is 2 teaspoons a day blended in cold drinks–smoothies, water, juice, etc., but never in hot liquids as the heat can neutralize the enzymes. Customers have said that the flavor is like a strong green tea, but most juices and smoothies mask the flavor. Although currently unavailable on Amazon, Green Magma sells the powder on their website for about $3.15/ounce.
7. Reel Organics Barley Grass Powder
Unlike the previous product, this one is made directly from the dehydrated and fine ground barley grass. While this is a different formulation, the nutrients and health benefits are similar as outlined on the product labels. Because this product does not require as intensive processing, it is less expensive than the juice powder. This product sells for about $1.80/ounce.
6. TerraVita Extra Strength Barley Grass Juice 100:1 Extract Powder
TerraVita brand barley juice extract powder is in concentrated form. It is pure barley juice powder with no other ingredients. While other brands and varieties have larger serving sizes, this one recommends only a 1/4 teaspoon in a glass of water, up to three times a day. For those who desire the nutritional benefits of barley powder, but have difficulties tolerating the taste, this may be a viable option, as a smaller amount mixed with other juices would not have as strong a flavor. This does come at a price, however, as TerraVita sells on Amazon for $9.93 per ounce.
5. Vimergy Organic Barleygrass Juice Capsules (240 ct)
This variety of barley grass extract is in capsule form. The capsules make taking the supplement much easier, because it does not need to be mixed in any liquid or smoothie. The capsule formula although convenient, does cost more. The dosage level is 8 capsules, which translates to about $3.20 per serving.
4. Supa Brand Supa Mega Greens
The Supa Brand powder combines barley grass powder with six other plant and herb powders, including spirulina, wheatgrass, alfalfa grass, sun chlorella, ginger, and dandelion. All of these other ingredients support one or more of the health benefits of barley powder. For instance, ginger, spirulina, and sun chlorella all have positive and healing benefits for the digestive system. This powder is currently unavailable through Amazon. However, the company sells it on their website for about $10.58 per ounce.
3. Nubeleaf Barley Grass Juice Powder
Nubeleaf brand juice powder is made from the pressed juices of barley leaves. This brand is similar in description to the Green Magma brand. The barley is certified organic and is grown and processed in China. It is packaged and shipped from the United States. Though currently unavailable through Amazon, Nubeleaf sells the powder at a cost of $3.25 per ounce.
2. Triquetra Health Barley Grass Juice Powder
This brand is grown in Utah, USA in volcanic soil. Like the other pure powder products, this one also contains the concentrated nutrients found in barley grass juice. Growing barley in volcanic soil is said to enhance the nutritional properties of the plant, as minerals and other healthful ingredients are concentrated here. Although not available on Amazon, Triquetra Health offers the product on its website for about $3.78 per ounce.
1. Purely Inspired Organic Greens, USDA Organic, Super Greens Powder
