Superfood

Why green barley and chlorella? How are they different from other superfoods?

The right definition of superfood is unknown, however this kind of food is usually famous for its one or two beneficial nutrients for our health. Chlorella and green barley are slightly different because they contain a complex range of nutrients. So, these two superfoods can give our body almost everything it needs in order to function perfectly. We can eat green barley and chlorella in the long term and we cannot overdose ourselves.

Chlorella

Chlorella

Algae creates the foundation of the food chain for the aquatic animals and it provides us with food that is nutritionally valuable as grasses. Chlorella pyrenoidosa was proved to be beneficial to animals as well as to human beings; this algae stands out with its large positive impact on health and its long history of consumption. Equally, there is one issue: the human body cannot digest the sturdy cell wall.  For this reason, we must disrupt the cell wall so that we get the nutrient-dense content found inside the chlorella cells.

Green barley

Green barley

Grasses are the foundation of the food chain for many large warm-blooded land animals, as they contain practically all the  nutrients those creatures need. However, the human body is not able to digest  grass fibre. We at Green Ways found the solution for this issue in making  nectar by extracting the juice from young grass leaves. Nectar does not contain any grass fibre, so it is extraordinarily beneficial and easily absorbed by humans. We chose namely green barley for our production because it is the most beneficial grass for human beings. It’s similar to wheat, but its use is restricted because of its unpleasant taste.

Are the beneficial effects of green barley and chlorella scientifically proven?

Green food or superfood is usually associated with superlatives and we might sometimes think that their effects are almost impossible. Hence, we become sceptical towards this topic and our attitude can negatively change. Even though there are many studies explaining their benefits, there are still many effects which we cannot explain from a scientific point of view. Let’s have a closer look at what we know about the relationship between science and green food / superfood.

 

The beneficial effects of Chlorella pyrenoidosa have been proven in over 7000 clinical studies and their number is  still increasing. Green barley juice attracted many physicians and scientists in the past century as it was considered the most beneficial functional food in preventing many diseases of civilization.

You can find the results of many clinical trials by searching the  keywords: chlorella” or green barley” in PubMed or Google Scholar database.

The company GreenWays (GW) published a Collection of studies” in 2014, which is accessible on GW e-shop or GW advisors. Various articles and educational materials were created together in collaboration with research teams from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. Moreover, a wide range of healthcare professionals support GW and contribute to strengthening research activities.

What should we search for when choosing a green food distributor?

The only way to assure a clean and high-quality product is to carry out regular analysis and controls of all steps of green food production. Many distributors think this process is demanding and costly. So, the producers play an important role in defining the quality of green food.  In practice, unfortunately, the quality of green food does not often correspond to BIO or quality certification of the company.

Scientific studies proved a beneficial impact of green food on our health. However, we must ensure their safety, quality and hygiene. Green Ways products can be consumed in the long term and we can recommend them to all age groups and categories of citizens.

 Examples of low-quality products:

https://www.szpi.gov.cz/clanek/potravinarska-inspekce-zjistila-vitaminovy-napoj-bez-vitaminu.aspx

We can sometimes find a warning sign regarding pregnancy or breastfeeding on the product labels. These products may contain chemical additives or the steps of the production may not have been properly adhered to. Low-quality cultivation or juice-extraction of green barley may result in a substantial content of grass fibre or gluten in a product. In this case, we cannot safely recommend the product to all age groups.
We should also know that some products do not always contain only chlorella. They are sometimes mixed with other algae such as spirulina. 


Detoxification of whole organism

Effective detoxification removes accumulated toxins in our body, which we breathe from polluted air or the ones which we consume in food. By getting rid of toxins in our body we alkalize our inner environment, which is a vital process for decreasing the risk of inflammatory diseases such as acne, eczema and other skin problems.

The quality of fruit and vegetables and all other items in a supermarket has rapidly declined in recent years. Our organisms and cells do not have enough nutrients to maintain all the vital reactions in the body.

The symptoms include: tiredness, deterioration in disease progression, weakening the immune system, augmented risk of osteoporosis, worsening of mental health and brain functions.



Anti-inflammatory effects

Anti-inflammatory effects

As mentioned above, consuming green food helps to reduce the risk of inflammation by detoxifying all cells in the body. Also, green barley and chlorella boost the immune system and help the body to “self-heal“.

Improvement of digestion

Improvement of digestion

Fibre, chlorophyll, high content of potassium and other elements improve peristalsis of the intestine and help the digestive system to get rid of toxins. By improving various functions of the digestive tract, we can see regulation of digestion speed.

Anti-aging properties, improvement quality of nails and hair
