It is best to take the days' serving the first thing in the morning with a glass of water or juice, but take it whenever it fits into your schedule-the most important thing is to take it daily. Be creative. My family also enjoys Heaven's Barley mixed in with yogurt or smoothies. Once it is mixed, consume it right away or it will thicken and be harder to drink. Heaven's Barley is in a powdered form -similar to flour and it has the ability to take on the taste of the drink it is in and is hardly noticeable. If you notice an increase in gas, try to use non-acidic juices as acidic juices can cause gas. Heaven's Barley gold Super Food should not be heated above 95° F as the desired enzymes will deteriorate. Caution: Do not exceed more than the program recommends.
When You Eat Barley, Don't Forget To Drink Water!
Drinking water throughout the day is important for assisting your body flush the toxins out that Heaven's Barley is helping get rid of. Water is preferred to other fluids, but if you cannot tolerate water, use juices and drinks that are natural, 100% juice and/or add water to them. Water helps decrease the strain on the organs that are detoxifying. Taking supplemental acidophilus daily may also be helpful.
What can I expect?
The body is cleansing itself, so especially during the first week, you may feel the need for more rest, and some people have experienced headaches or increased pain. As the body detoxifies, you could feel more energy after a few weeks. After a month or two you may begin to notice positive changes in areas of your body that had been troublesome. Consistent consumption can help the body get the sufficient nutrients it needs to begin cellular renewal and healing, thereby increasing organ efficiency.

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."

"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."
