You can choose the best barley grass powder by discussing various options with your doctor, pharmacist, herbalist, or friends and family who have used a similar product. Find options that are made from organic ingredients and that have a price tag that is suitable to your budget. Once you have narrowed down your options this way, you can purchase a trial one and see how you like it. If there is something you are not happy with, you can always sample a different product once the first is gone.

Barley grass has been shown to have numerous health benefits thanks to its antioxidants and phytochemicals. Some of the positive side effects may include increased energy, lowered cancer risk, detoxification of the body and enhanced immune function. Barley grass powder is often one of the most convenient ways to get a daily dose of barley because it is easier to swallow than pills and can be mixed with water, juice, or smoothies.

When choosing the best barley grass powder, you should go with an option that is made from organic ingredients to ensure you are not getting pesticides and other harmful residues which may outweigh the detoxifying effects. You should also choose an option that has no added fillers like sugar and no preservatives. The barley powder you are looking for will likely be found in your local health food store or online.

You should also look at the price of any barley grass powder you are considering. They can be pricey, so buy the smallest package available until you know you like the product and will continue using it. Ask the makers of the product if they offer any samples or sample-sized packages. Read ingredients for each option and choose the least expensive one that meets all of your needs.

When buying online, you may also choose to read the customer reviews for each type of barley grass powder. Consumers are generally all too willing to post negative experiences, so if a product gets rave reviews from several customers, you can be relatively certain that it is a quality item. Just remember that the overall scores may be affected by the number of reviews a product have received, so if they option you are considering has a low score but only one review, you are only getting one person’s opinion.

Remember to speak with your doctor before using barley grass powder to prevent or treat any medical condition and to ensure there are no potential reactions with medications you are current taking or with any food aversions you may have. Always take barley powder according to the maker’s instructions to avoid detoxifying too quickly. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, detoxification regimens may need to be avoided or performed very slowly to prevent harm to your baby.
