It’s also a really good way to make the body more alkaline. Many chemicals and processed foods leave our bodies for acidic than alkaline. An overly acidic body is a breeding ground for diseases and cancers. One of the best ways to detoxify the body is with a barley grass cleanse.

There are many more benefits to this wonderful herb. I highly suggest anyone adding this to their regular diet and you’ll see amazing improvements to your health and overall wellness in a matter of weeks. As with any herb, always consult with your doctor before consuming. It’s very safe, but it’s never a bad idea to be cautious. I’ve never had any negative side effects from it however.
The only side-effects I’ve heard about are through the initial detox period if you’ve never had a cleanse before. Often times, on peoples first time cleansing their bodies, they will have minor symptoms as a result of the body getting rid of excess chemicals, heavy metals, and the like.
All of which are minor, and are only proof the detox cleanse is working! Your body has to eliminate the toxins which have been building up over long periods of time, the body has to get rid of them in ways which may not be very comfortable in the beginning if this is your first cleanse. But after the detox period is over, you will reap the rewards of a healthy body!
A lot of my studies have been on the liver, and just how important they are to our bodies and good health. Our livers are responsible for so much that we absolutely must become more aware of how to keep it healthy. Our livers break down all our foods, cleanses the toxins in our bodies, processes all of our sensory input, and is our heat-furnace. It’s the only organ in the body that can regenerate.
Our livers are extremely abused in our society, and Barley Grass can play an important role in helping to heal our livers.
