The Japanese environment where the barley leaves grow is the perfect place for cultivating strong, organic plants. No agricultural pesticides or chemicals are used, so our Young Barley Leaves are entirely organic.
Our Young Barley Leaves are carefully hand-cut at about 2 inches above the soil. Hand-cutting improves the nutritional value of the leaves by avoiding bacteria from the soil, preventing the intrusion of pebbles and other foreign bodies, and identifying the healthiest plants to build the highest quality product.
The Blanching Process: Once the greens are cut, they are immediately delivered to our central facility from the field. There they are purified in water and rinsed before being superheated. The heat of blanching helps retain the chlorophyll in the plant and keep the components fresh when it is dried and powdered.
Each ingredient provided in our specialized Jiru mix includes significant vitamins and minerals with long-term benefits to your health.
Young Barley Leaves contain calcium, iron, potassium, SOD enzyme, zinc, magnesium, beta carotene, vitamin B1, vitamin C, and dietary fiber.
Kumazasa Powder contains dietary fiber, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, and K along with lignin, calcium, and iron. This leafy green is particularly useful in helping the body eliminate waste.
Lactobacillus sporogenes is the scientific name for lactic acid bacteria, a significant organism in probiotics. These bacteria are resistant to heat, acid, and oxygen, so they are particularly suited to living inside our bodies and supporting intestinal health.
Matcha is a powdered green tea that contains vitamins A, E, K, B1, B2, B6, C, as well as niacin, folic acid, pantothenic acid, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, and copper.
Digestion resistant dextrin is a byproduct of corn starch that is indigestible. This “hard to digest” ingredient offers significant benefits for intestinal health and waste elimination. Fibrous and indigestible compounds help our bodies move food through our systems, so this component is essential for improved digestion and better overall health.
