This high fibre fruit, vegetable and herbal blend contains 100% organic ingredients in concentrated powder form, from activated pre-sprouted barley, apple, linseed / flaxseed, wheatgrass, quinoa, barley grass, alfalfa, kelp (Ascophyllum), spirulina, acai berry, carrot, turmeric, bilberry fruit, spinach leaf and lemon peel.
As well as providing phytonutrients (such as chlorophyll), it provides 12.3g of plant protein per 100g, 72.8g of carbohydrate per 100g (with just 12.4g sugars) and 13.1g of fibre (making it a high fibre food).
Barley grain fibre contributes to an increase in faecal bulk.
Carbohydrates contribute to the maintenance of normal brain function (with a daily intake of 130g of carbohydrates from all sources). They also contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle (with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours and no later than 6 hours).
More about pre-sprouted barley
Notwithstanding that there are 14 other nutritious organic foods in Nourish Superfoods, the potency of this blend revolves primarily around the inclusion of one key ingredient: activated pre-sprouted barley.
Historically, barley has been used as a nutritious food staple for thousands of years. For example, the Roman army marched on it; it was the primary staple of their diet. Similarly, Greek gladiators trained on it and were known as “barley eaters”. In more recent years, the same formula has been used by the UN to prevent starvation in 3rd world countries.
With pre-sprouted barley, all of the enzyme and nutrient activity in the grain is captured just before sprouting. It contains a range of nutrients, including tocotrienols, beta-glucans, vitamins (including vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, folic acid and vitamin E), minerals (including potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and manganese), all 8 essential amino acids, fatty acids (essential fatty acids – linoleic acid (omega 6), linoleic acid (omega 3), as well as lauric acid, stearic acid and oleic acid), soluble fibre and enzymes (including Super Oxide Dismutase). It also ranks low on the glycemic index and, as a long-chain carbohydrate that takes up to 4 hours to break down in the digestive tract, provides a slow, sustained release of energy.
