A Salad in a Glass with BarleyLife

A Salad in a Glass with BarleyLife


Experts recommend that people need to eat 9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day for energy, endurance, and good health.  One serving is ½ cup.  That is about 2 cups of fruit and 2.5 cups of vegetables each day.  Raw fruits and vegetables are packed with lots of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and live enzymes.


People hear a lot about vitamins and minerals, but not much is said about the importance of enzymes.  If the human body does not have enzymes, then people could not breathe, digest food, move their muscles, and they would die.

Unfortunately, enzymes are extremely sensitive to heat and are destroyed at temperatures above 118 degrees (212 degrees is boiling).  This means that foods that are cooked, pasteurized, processed, canned, or microwaved have had their enzymes destroyed.  So, the key to good health is eating a lot of raw foods!

There are more than 3,000 enzymes in the human body and following are just a few of the responsibilities of enzymes:     Essential for digesting food, converting food to energy, fight inflammation, antiviral agents, help repair muscle tissues, organs, nerve cells, bone, skin, and glands, help to eliminate the toxins from the colon, kidneys, lungs, and skin, help the blood to coagulate to stop bleeding, protect the blood from dangerous waste materials, maintain proper function of the body.

Enzyme Deficiency

Muscle pain, fatigue, and digestive disorders can be caused by a deficiency in enzymes.  If an adequate number of enzymes are not available to break down the food people eat, then toxins build up in the stomach and intestines and can cause bloating and indigestion.  The toxins can spill over into the blood which creates more problems for the immune system, which makes it hard for the body to fight off viruses or infections.  There are many authors and experts that agree that supplementing with plant enzymes can break the cycle of ill health.


Phytonutrients are also called phytochemicals.  They are found in plant foods and are very beneficial for the survival of the plant.  They help to protect plants from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats.  When people eat fruits and vegetables, studies show that the phytonutrients help to prevent disease and keep the body working properly.  People can NOT get phytonutrients from man-made vitamins and minerals.


Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green color.  Many studies have shown that chlorophyll can improve a person’s health, boost energy, fight illnesses, improve the skin, helps anemia, improves body odors/breath, wound healing, fights cancer, hormone balance, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and helps with weight loss or to maintain a healthy weight.   (MedicalNewsToday.com) Chlorophyll is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.  It also stimulates tissue growth and stimulates red blood cells in connection with oxygen supply.  So, it is very important to eat many green vegetables to stay healthy!

If people find that they are not eating green vegetables or eating the recommended 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, a great alternative is to drink BarleyLife!

 AIM’s BarleyLife

BarleyLife is considered a “whole food” and not a man-made supplement.  It is derived from juicing young barley grass (not the barley grain.)  One tablespoon of BarleyLife is equal to 6.24 cups of barley leaves.  Mix it with water or juice and have a quick salad in a glass to help the body have energy, endurance, and feel good!

It contains a wide spectrum of 16 vitamins, 23 minerals, antioxidants, thousands of live enzymes, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, and 18 amino acids for muscle strength.  It provides a natural anti-inflammatory action in the body, promotes a healthy immune system, and increases overall energy.

When tested, the green leaves of barley were the most alkaline of all natural foods with spinach coming in second place. Most disease cannot live in an alkaline environment. For more information, see the chapter in my book on acid and alkaline pH.

The barley leaves are harvested at a young age to ensure more nutrients.  The juice is turned into a powder at a low temperature to ensure live nutrients. It is pure juice (not a milled grass), and the nutrients are in natural proportions without synthetic or genetic modifications.  This is a holistic approach to crop management that is free of herbicide, pesticide, and fungicide.

Humans do not have the enzymes to break down the fiber in the barley grass, so when the barley is juiced and the fiber is removed, an incredible storehouse of nutrients is available for the body to absorb and utilize.  Brown rice and kelp are added for extra benefits.

BarleyLife Xtra has all the benefits of BarleyLife, but the “Xtra” is the juice of 18 different fruits and vegetables along with the Barley grass and kelp.

All of the BarleyLife products are certified organic, gluten free, Non-GMO, and Vegan.  AIM has a 30-day money back guarantee on all their products.
