Few things amaze the human condition as miracles do. Be it through some stroke of divine intervention or just plain luck, such things are few and far between. As such, it would be totally unwise to leave your life up to fate.
However, sometimes, lights shine down on those who believe. In our search for prolonging our lives, we have finally found our strongest candidate yet. Introducing: Barley Grass!
What makes this little weed so special? Well, for starters, it’s an analgesic. A natural painkiller! But all of that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
It’s also got a plethora of vitamins and minerals. These include potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, manganese, zinc, beta carotene, B1, B2, B6, C, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. Barley grass also has 30 times more vitamin B1 and 11 times the amount of calcium than that is present in cow’s milk, 6.5 times as much carotene and nearly 5 times the iron content as that of spinach, close to seven times the vitamin C has in oranges, four times the vitamin B1 as in whole wheat flour, and 80 micrograms of vitamin B12 per 100 grams of dried barley grass juice1.
For the icing on the cake, in 2017, it has also been proven that barley grass extract inhibits the growth of breast and prostate cancers2. What a time to be alive!
This is why barley grass is an essential part of the formulation of our Paragis Juice and Gourmet Green Coffee Mix. We only wish to give the Filipino people the power to take their fates into their own hands with a healthy life.
