Extraordinary fiber content
Fiber levels found in barley are extraordinarily high thanks to having the fiber nutrients present throughout the whole grain unlike most other grains in which fibers are only concentrated in the outer bran layer only. This rich fiber content makes barley recommended for regularity, lower cholesterol and for intestinal protection.

Barley is also very rich in nutrients such as molybdenum, magnesium, selenium, copper, Vitamin B1, chromium, phosphorus and niacin. This makes it especially beneficial for a wide array of illnesses such as Arthritis, cardiovascular risks, cholesterol and it also helps in the development and repair of body tissue.
