Barley has impressive health benefits and uses. It is popularly used in bars infused with beer. There are also powdered drinks like coffee and shakes which have Barley grass in them. This article will tackle the various uses of barley and its health benefits. At first, barley has not garnered as much popularity as wheat. Both are grains, and both are gifts from nature that are beneficial to our health. Nevertheless, there is so much more to barley than just ordinary grain. When I first encountered barley, it was mixed in a coffee. I have no idea about its health benefits, where it came from, and what it is. It is so foreign to me. In the first sip, I can already hint at the “grassy-taste,” but in a good way. Maybe because it is already mixed with coffee and sugar. It added freshness to the bitterness of my coffee.

That is how I came to know barley grass and its excellent health benefits. I also found out that it has an unpleasant taste when you drink it purely. So it is advisable to infuse it with other ingredients if you can’t handle the taste. Aside from infusing it in our drinks or smoothies, we can also use barley in our baking. It is a healthy addition to our usual bland bread. You can also drink it without other ingredients, and trust me when I try it (forget the unpleasant taste), I can attest to its effectiveness in detoxification. For further explanation, the following are the health benefits of barley.

Rich In Antioxidants

Barley is rich in vitamins A and C, which act as antioxidants. As I have mentioned, I experienced this effect after drinking barley juice. From that day, I made barley part of my daily meal, and my bowel movement improved. It also has the same result, even if it is infused with other ingredients. It is what makes barley a perfect drink when losing weight and removing toxins from our bodies.

Improves Skin Health

Any vegetable or grass is good for our skin. Drinking fresh barley juice can make your skin softer and keeps the glow in your skin. The vitamins and minerals found in barley can improve your skin health by keeping it hydrated and moisturized.

Good For Digestion

Barley grass provides soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps digest food effectively. The soluble fiber keeps the blood sugar and cholesterol levels lower because it is responsible for assisting our stomach in absorbing sugar slowly. At the same time, the insoluble fiber feeds the good bacteria that keep our intestines healthy.

Suitable For The Bones

Barley is also good calcium and phosphorus needed for bone health. A study shows that the calcium in barley is efficient in preventing osteoporosis.

Reduce The Risk Of Stroke And Heart Disease

Since barley is also wheatgrass, it has a soluble dietary fiber that effectively keeps our cholesterol level low by absorbing cholesterol before reaching our blood. When our cholesterol is at an average level, we have a low risk of stroke and developing heart disease.

Barley grass provides nine essential amino acids crucial for repairing muscles, blood vessels, and bone marrow. It is indeed a healthy ingredient that you must include in your diet. Regular drinking will make you healthy inside and out.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
