Ancient Barley is a organic, raw barley that is rich in beta-glucan soluble fiber that helps to slow down the body's absorption of sugar and cholesterol from going into the blood stream.
This beta-glucan soluble fiber helps lower the body's need for insulin, which is an important part of maintaining and regaining Health!
CHOLESTEROL: The FDA and National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Expert Panel agree on barley as one of the dietary options for lowering LDL-cholesterol and achieving the USDA recommended consumption of 3 servings of whole grain foods per day.
LIPIDS & CARDIOVASCULAR HEART DISEASE: USDA/ARS clinical studies showed that barley foods providing 3g and 6g of beta-glucan soluble fiber daily significantly lowered LDL cholesterol from 6.5% to 11%. It has been estimated that every 1% decrease in serum cholesterol provides a 2-3% reduction in the observed rate of CHD.
TYPE 2 DIABETES & INSULIN RESISTANCE: Soluble fiber has a direct impact on carbohydrate digestion by slowing the breakdown of starch to sugar and the absorption of sugar into the blood stream. Clinical trials have shown that barley foods require less insulin to digest standardized levels of carbohydrates resulting in reduced risk of insulin resistance which leads to Type 2 diabetes.
BLOOD PRESSURE: Epidemiological studies support the relationship between increasing whole grain consumption and lower blood pressure. In addition, significant reductions in blood pressure were reported in clinical trials where hypercholesterolemic and hypertensive subjects consumed soluble fiber containing pearl barley.
SATIETY AND WEIGHT CONTROL: Human clinical trials conclude that consumption of low GI-foods are associated with a reduction in subsequent hunger (increased satiety) which leads to lower voluntary caloric intake. Intake of fiber and whole grains are also inversely related to body weight.
CANCER & IMMUNE FUNCTION: Barley contains significant amounts of antioxidants (vitamin E tocotrienols), phenolics (ferulic acid, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory), flavenoids and phytic acid. Diets rich in whole grains like raw barley and low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may reduce the risk of some cancers. The beta-glucan soluble fiber in raw barley may promote a healthy immune system.
The Powerful Antioxidant: SOD -superoxide dismutase
Barley is rich in minerals, B-vitamins + a powerful antioxidant: SOD, which neutralizes free radicals to help prevent damage to cell membranes
SOD is an enzyme that is a very powerful antioxidant that actually neutralizes free radicals and prevents damage to our cell membranes.
When the cell membranes are assaulted by smoke, radiation from the sun, poisons or chemicals, the SOD Antioxidant acts to repair them.

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."
"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."
"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
