Spring is in full swing and we have prepared for you a tip for a real boost that we have fallen in love with! Just as everything begins to wake up, we begin to feel the flood of new fresh energy. This season of new beginnings is perfect for thorough cleansing, not only of the household, relationships and of our own mind, but above all of our body that has been resting during the long winter. I mean who has never felt the need for a spring detoxification and reboot? Boost yourself, summer is coming!
Do you know green foods?
Our mind and body tend to clean itself, and we unconsciously seek out food and supplements that help us to do so. Now during spring, it’s mainly the various green foods like young nettle, spinach, parsley, bear garlic (from which you can make excellent pesto) and other herbs, grasses and wild plants. Green foods contain the chlorophyll pigment, which is basically concentrated sunlight, a wide range of minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and other substances that help us clean our body while nourishing and providing it with energy.
However, today’s world is hectic and sometimes we can’t enjoy these delicacies in sufficient quantities. In this case, we can use the help of various so-called superfoods, such as green algae (chlorella and spirulina), or young green grass (barley and wheat) in concentrated amounts. We at GoodGlass have recently focused on young green barley – not only because it tastes so fresh and feels more natural for us, but it is also “stuffed” with nutrients!
What are the benefits of green barley?
Green barley is actually the dried juice of young barley green shoots which is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and other nutrients. Simply everything a small plant needs to grow into a large and powerful plant! It’s strengthening our body, providing it with energy and contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system. Due to the large amount of antioxidants and chlorophyll, barley has strong detoxifying effects. It cleanse, regenerate and reduces the acidity of our body and protects it from the emergence of many civilization diseases and premature aging. Such a small big helper!
How to prepare and use green barley?
Preparation of this healthy elixir is very simple – just mix one teaspoon of green powder with water. The amount depends on the taste. We recommend to fill GoodGlass with water up to two-thirds in order to provide sufficient space for shaking and insert a filter to ensure good mixing. Then just shake for 10 seconds and the drink is ready! And when to use this miracle? Preferably in the morning on an empty stomach, so that all nutrients can be absorbed as efficiently as possible. We can also drink it during the day, whenever we feel tired.
What to think about when choosing young barley?
The young barley has an excellent quality – it binds heavy metals to itself and carry them away from the body. It is therefore important that it grows in clean soil so we don’t take in any undesirable substances. Fortunately, today there are many companies that carefully monitor the quality of their products and test each lot. We tested green barley from our local Raw & Bio store Vitalvibe and the international company Green Ways – both get their barley from clean soils in Utah, where there are ideal conditions. We dare to say that both products are of sufficient quality and have a great taste. Try this elixir of health too!
Let’s give our body green. Cheers!
