The leaves contain many of the vitamins, minerals, and proteins necessary for the human diet. Barley grass is similar to other dark leafy vegetables.

Eighteen amino acids are found in barley grass including all eight of the essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are the major constituents of our body and are necessary for the continual cell building, cell regeneration and energy production necessary for life.

There are high amounts of vitamins and minerals in barley grass leaves. The vitamins found in barley grass include beta-carotene, folic acid, pantothenic acid, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6 and vitamin C.

The minerals include potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, manganese and zinc.

Barley grass has also very high chlorophyll levels.

Barley grass has many essential nutrients that act together to optimise bodily functions. Chlorophyll and other essential nutrients help to detoxify the body from toxins such as heavy metals and pollutants that we ingest every day. Chlorophyll also has anti-inflammatory properties.
