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.
