Add a boost with Green Blend, featuring Barley Grass.
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)  a member of the grass family, is a major cereal grain. Important uses include use as animal fodder, as a source of fermentable material for beer and certain distilled beverages, and as a component of various health foods. It is used in soups and stews, and in barley bread of various cultures. Barley grains are commonly made into malt in a traditional and ancient method of preparation.
In a 2007 ranking of cereal crops in the world, barley was fourth both in terms of quantity produced (136 million tons) and in area of cultivation (566,000 km²).
Like wheat and rye, barley contains gluten, which makes it an unsuitable grain for consumption by those with celiac disease. 
Barley contains eight essential amino acids.  According to a
recent study, eating whole-grain barley can regulate blood sugar (i.e. reduce
blood glucose response to a meal) for up to 10 hours after consumption compared
to white or even whole-grain wheat, which have similar glycemic
indices. The effect was attributed to colonic fermentation of indigestible carbohydrates.
