Spring is in full swing and we have prepared for you a tip for a real kicker that we liked so much! Just as everything starts to wake up in the spring, we also start to feel the influx of new energy . This time of new beginnings is suitable for a thorough cleaning , not only of the household, of work and personal relationships, and of our own mind, but above all of our body, which rested over the winter. Who among us has never felt the need for spring detoxification and body restart ? Kick off the new year!
Try green foods!
Our minds and bodies tend to cleanse themselves, and we subconsciously seek out foods and supplements that help us do this. Now in the spring, it is mainly various green foods such as young nettle, spinach, parsley, wild garlic, from which, among other things, an excellent pesto is made, and other herbs, grasses and wild plants . Green foods contain the dye chlorophyll, which is actually concentrated sunlight, and then a wide range of minerals, much-needed amino acids, antioxidants and other substances that help us clean our body and at the same time nourish it and supply it with the necessary energy .
However, in today's hectic world, not everyone has time to regularly stock their table with these delicacies in sufficient quantities. The use of various superfoods, such as green algae , chlorella and spirulina, or young green grasses such as barley or wheat in concentrated quantities is therefore offered. We focused on young green barley , because not only does it taste so fresh, but it is closer in nature to us than algae and is loaded with nutrients!
What is green barley?
Green barley is basically the dried juice of the green shoots of young barley, which is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and other nutrients . Just everything that a small plant needs to grow into a big and strong plant! It strengthens our body, gives it energy and contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system . Thanks to the large amount of antioxidants and chlorophyll, green barley has strong detoxifying effects . It not only cleans and regenerates our body , but also reduces the overacidification of the organism and thus protects it from the development of many civilization diseases and premature aging. Such a little big helper!
How to use and prepare green barley?
Preparing this healthy drink from green barley is not difficult at all. Simply mix one teaspoon of green powder with water. How much water? It's all about taste here. We recommend pouring a maximum of ⅔ water into our GoodGlass eco-bottle to create enough space for shaking and insert a filter to ensure good mixing. Then just shake it for 10 seconds and it's done! And when to use this miracle? Best in the morning on an empty stomach, so that all the nutrients can be absorbed as well as possible, but also during the day if we feel tired.
What to watch out for when using green barley?
Young barley has an excellent property of binding heavy metals and then removing them from the body. It is therefore important that it grows on clean soil and that we, on the other hand, do not take in these unwanted substances together with it. Fortunately, there are already many companies today that carefully monitor the quality of their products and test each batch. Companies we've tested green foods from include Raw & Bio store Vitalvibe (click the link to get an automatic 7% discount on your first purchase) and multinational company Green Ways , both of which grow barley on clean land in Utah where they are for cultivation barley ideal conditions. Make sure that the product you choose is of sufficient quality and is a pure elixir of health.
