Introduction

 

“Green Magma” is the commercial name for barley grass or barley green. Way back in 1969, Dr. Hagiwara developed and patented a unique juice extraction process in order to preserve the delicate nutrients in this freshly harvested young barley grass. It gained fast popularity as a type of superfood owing to its dense nutrient contents. It is a superior source of protein, enzymes, and chlorophyll (66 times more than in spinach!). Additionally, it contains the potent antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C, superoxide dismutase, lutonarin, saponarin, and vitamin E. Green Magma is often combined with other green blends such as kale, spirulina, and wheatgrass.

 

Benefits

 

  • Improves digestion: The enzymes in Green Magma promote good digestion and healthy intestinal flora. Chlorophyll promotes aerobic, oxygen-loving bacteria that help maintain a healthy digestive system.
  • Acts as gentle detox: Barley grass may help alleviate inflammation and efficiently whish away toxins and harmful heavy metals.
  • Supports immune function: Barley grass is full of antioxidants that work to neutralize free radicals and help prevent diseases linked to oxidative stress.
  • Boosts energy: The nutrients from expertly culled and processed barley grass juice provide a boost to one’s energy levels.
  • Reduces acidity: Restoring the proper acid-alkali balance could have a wide range of benefits, including improved energy and metabolism, better sleep, more regular bowel movements, decreased fatigue and stronger hair and fingernails.
  • Provides complete nutrition: This superfood contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E and K alongside a plethora of electrolytes, antioxidants, amino acids and enzymes. Put it all together and you have an impressive deluge of invaluable nutrients crucial for your body’s development, maintenance and overall wellness.

Ways to Consume

 

Green Magma is available in several forms including powder, juices, tablets, and gummies. To obtain its full potential benefits, it is recommended to be taken in its natural form (powder formulation). Take 1-2 teaspoons of Green Magma powder and stir well in an 8-ounce glass of water until fully dissolved. For tablet form, take 3-6 tablets. Best to take on an empty stomach 15-20 minutes before or 2 hours after a meal. This is because it takes longer for Green Magma to pass through the stomach if it is taken at the same time as or after eating.

*Caution: Do not mix Green Magma with hot liquid since the heat has a tendency of neutralizing its active enzymes.

 

Precaution

 

Green Magma is generally safe to be consumed by everyone except for those taking blood thinners such as warfarin (due to high vitamin K content) and those with kidney disease (due to the potassium level).
