Organic Barley Juice Grass Powder

John's Organic Barley

Complete nutritional health is more than just a healthy diet. Preservatives found in most diets lack vital nutrients and minerals imperative to cell growth, repair and well-being. Barley oxygenates the bloodstream increasing mental and physical health.

Fresher, Darker & more Detoxifying

"John's Barley Grass Juice Powder is an exceptional product. Compared to other commercial barley grass juice powders, John's is fresher, darker and far more detoxifying. Barley grass is much milder in taste than other green super-foods like wheat-grass and blue-green algae. I use this product daily and I highly recommend it to others."

Nutrition to Fight Cancer

The physiology of cancer cells indicates the need for nutritional support.

White blood cells (leukocytes) attack and destroy foreign cells like cancer. Cancer cells are coated with a protein lining that prevents white blood cells from destroying them. An enzyme is a catalyst, a chemical that allows food to be broken down into constituent nutrients.

There are many kinds of enzymes that participate in hundreds of chemical processes in the body. The two enzymes most responsible for breaking down animal proteins are trypsin and chymotrypsin. They are not needed to break down vegetable proteins. The body produces these and many other enzymes for such work in the pancreas. All people have cancer cells in their bodies. These cells are normally killed off because trypsin breaks down the protein sheath protecting the cell, and then white blood cells attack the remaining cancer cell and destroy it. Thus, enzymes like trypsin are the body's first line of defense against cancer.

Enzymes are absolutely critical to the digestive and nutritional processes in the body. The source of enzymes is FRESH unprocessed food. Examples are fresh vegetables, grasses like barley grass (John's Barley Grass Juice Powder and Barley Green), nuts, berries, grain, fruit, and meat. As long as these foods are fresh, the enzymes in them help us to digest them and convert them into fuel for the body. (John's Barley Grass Juice Powder is created with the enzymes intact.) If the food sits too long in the open air, the enzymes start breaking them down before they enter our body. Enzymes (and bacteria) thus cause the rot process characteristic of spoiled food. Without enzymes, the process is slowed down or eliminated altogether.

Enzymes can be destroyed by heat. If you elevate the temperature of any food above 137 degrees Farenheit, you will destroy the enzymes in it. This will make the food much harder for your body to digest. That is one reason you should take digestive enzyme supplements if you eat a lot of (or mostly) cooked food.

A major problem with cooked meat is that is high in protein content and zero in enzyme content (unless it is rare). It is also highly acidic. This massive amount of animal protein requires the enzyme trypsin to digest. The body can only produce so much trypsin. If all the trypsin is being used to digest animal protein, then little or none is left to break down the protein lining on cancer cells, and the cells start to flourish and multiply because leukocytes cannot kill them. We have destroyed the natural enzymes in the meat by cooking it, and we deprive the body of its precious trypsin supply by ingesting the meat. Now you can see why a diet high in cooked animal protein is carcinogenic.

And note this: trypsin and chymotrypsin are defensive enzymes, not digestive enzymes. They are being conscripted into servitude in the process of digesting animal proteins when they should be left to their defensive work of killing cancer cells.

Nitrilosides work like this:

Cancer cells contain an enzyme called beta-glucosidase that converts nitrilosides into two molecules of glucose, one molecule of benzaldehyde (extremely toxic to the cancer cell), and one molecule of hydrogen cyanide (somewhat toxic to the cancer cell). Normal body cells contain the enzyme rhodanese which converts nitrilosides into food. Only cancer cells contain beta-glucosidase. Thus only cancer cells can convert nitrilosides into benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide, and the process kills the cancer cells while it only nourishes normal cells! This is a target-specific reaction. It does not adversely affect normal cells.

Over the past few hundred years, man has turned from grains like millet that are high in nitrilosides to processed food that are low in nitrilosides, like white flower used to make bread, cakes, donuts that most Americans eat several times a day. Furthermore, livestock used to graze on grasses high in nitrilosides, but now are kept in feed lots where they are fed harvested grains laced with growth hormones and virtually devoid of nitrilosides. Our diets are higher in animal protein (from feed lot beef, pork, and chicken) than at any time in the history of the world, and lower in nitriloside-bearing foods than ever before. Now you can see why cancer is on the increase and why it is so rampant that three out of ten people (according to the National Cancer Institute) will get cancer!

What our medical researchers are doing is somewhat backwards and wrong. They should be convincing us to go back to the kinds of food that inhibit cancer rather than finding more drugs that treat cancer. Now you can see why most of their work is in vain, like trying to use a bandaid to patch a hole in the dyke!

The only real cure (and the easiest cure) for cancer is to prevent it with a diet containing vegetable (but no animal) protein, and plenty of fresh uncooked food high in nitrilosides and enzymes.

Nitrilosides must be transported to cells to facilitate their work of destroying cancer. Zinc is necessary for nitriloside metabolism in killing cancer cells.

Nothing heals cancer in the body in the absence of manganese, selenium, magnesium, calcium, zinc and other minerals, enzymes, and vitamins C, A, E, and B (including B17 or laetrile). They are essential to healing and good health. You cannot be deficient in any of these important nutrients and maintain good health or cure cancer.

The best way to get them is in fresh, uncooked foods. If you have cancer, you ought to make sure you eat these foods every day, preferably by juicing them, and get plenty of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and nitrilosides.

John's Barley Grass Juice Powder is very high in all these vitamins, minerals, and vegetable proteins.

ORAC, Free Radicals, Antioxidants: What's the Big Deal?

For over 20 years scientists have demonstrated a probable link between free radical damage and and chronic diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and the actual aging process itself. Antioxidants, on the other hand, are chemical compounds that have been shown to prevent, stop, or reduce oxidative damage.

What is an antioxidant? An antioxidant is any substance that reduces oxidative damage (damage due to oxygen) such as that caused by free radicals. There are hundreds of different antioxidant compounds that include various vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and phytochemical antioxidants. Since scientists don't know every antioxidant in a plant, a test was developed that indicates the total antioxidant potential.
