Why Green Magma?

Green Magma® is a superior source of protein as it provides proportionate amino acids considered ideal for humans. It is also a rich source of essential nutrients, enzymes and Chlorophyll. It contains water soluble vitamins and vitamin E as well as copious amounts of vitamin K, beta-carotine and lutein. Researchers at the University of California at Davis, and George Washington University have found that barley grass juice contains the potent antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C, superoxide dismutase, lutonarin, saponarin (GIV) and vitamin E succinate. Each of these important phytochemicals has been shown to help prevent oxidation caused by free-radicals.

Green Magma® Barley grass juice contains abundant chlorophyll. Chlorophyll-rich greens have long been used in restoration of health and blood builders. This is not surprising, as the chemical structure of chlorophyll and hemoglobin are almost identical, with one exception: chlorophyll has magnesium at the centre of its molecule, and hemoglobin has iron. Chlorophylls ability to support the production of red blood cells is most likely due to this similarity. Scientists have also found chlorophyll to be a powerful, yet gentle, detoxifier. Green Magma® Barley grass juice powders has one of the highest, natural, rich chlorophyll contents of all green vegetables. In fact, Barley Grass has 66 times more chlorophyll than spinach. The rich chlorophyll of Green Magma answered the frequent asked questions of “Why Green Magma is so green?”

While both barley grass and wheat grass are nutritious, Dr. Hagiwara has demonstrated that barley grass contains all the essential nutrients required by our bodies. Research has found that barley grass is a more potent source than wheat grass of the “grass juice factor” necessary for growth and development in mammals. GM gives you a superb natural nutrition in a glass. It provides you with an abundance of active enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, chlorophyll and other important phytonutrients in a natural medium. Good nutrition means delivering the necessary nutrients to your cells, neutralizing body waste and protection from free radicals. Unlike common mixtures of vegetable juice, Green Magma® barley grass powder juice does not over-stimulate and therefore it is suitable for everyone including those that have the most limited digestive capability and also the oversensitive

Ideal for:

  • Alkalizer – Restores body acid-alkaline balance. High body acidity can couse weight gain, allergy, bad breath, chronic fatigue, premature aging, immune deficiency and acceleration of free radical attacks

  • Bowel regularity – promotes good digestion and healthy intestinal flora. Chlorophyll promotes aerobic, oxygen-loving bacteria that helps maintain healthy digestive system

  • Complete nutrient for sustained energy no matter what your age. Provides many beneficial plant nutrients including enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, protein, carotenoids.

General benefits:
Strengthens immune system, increases energy, promotes good digestion, supports daily cleansing

Research and literature on Green Magma®

Dr. Nicholas Perricone - Ageless Face, Ageless Mind (Ballantine Books 2007),

In Dr. Perricone’s latest book, he states:

  1. Green Magma’s® nutrients versus vegetables: (p. 43-44) “When the nutrient content of single servings of Green Magma were compared to the nutrient content of single servings of different vegetables, Green Magma was found to contain greater amounts of vitamin A, vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B6, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and calcium than nine or more of the ten vegetables measured.”

  2. For those on low-carbohydrate diets: (p. 44) “It is important to note that Green Magma is lower in carbohydrates than is the quantity of vegetables needed to provide the same amounts of essential nutrients as Green Magma. This is an important consideration for people on low-carbohydrate diets and for those concerned about their weight, since we know that body mass is directly linked to insulin resistance, which I linked to refined carbohydrate consumption.”

  1. His daily regimen: (p. 42) “For my own regimen, I take both Green Magma and Veggie Magma every day. The powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidants in these products provide a very targeted antidote to AGE formation and AGE prevention.”

He is the author of the three New York Times # 1 Best Sellers, The Perricone Promise (Warner Books 2004), The Perricone Prescription (HarperCollins 2002), and The Wrinkle Cure (Warner Books 1998). In addition, he has authored the New York Times best seller, The Perricone Weight Loss Diet (Random House 2005), Dr. Perricone’s 7 Secrets to Beauty, Health and Longevity (Random House 2006), and the most recent Ageless Face, Ageless Mind (Ballantine Books 2007)

Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara – Green Barley Glass Essence (Keats Publishing, 1985)

This book describes the special nourishment of Green Barley grass by Dr.Yoshihide Hagiwara. In this book, Dr, Hagiwara presents several new scientific concepts that he believes to be present in young green barley grass that may have special nutrient and even pharmacologic properties. Of special interest in Dr. Hagiwara’s research are the many enzymes in Green Barley grass that may have protective properties against many modern day diseases.

Clinical Research:

Support for Normal Cholesterol Levels and Inhibition of LDL Oxidation with a Diet Rich in Poly- or Monounsaturated Fatty Acids and Barley Grass Juice Powder.

Liu WC, Tsai CE. Young Barley Leaf Prevents LDL Oxidation in Humans. Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry [published by The Chinese Institute of Food Science and Technology] Vol. 4 (3): 110-116 (2002).

SUMMARY: The results show that daily consumption of a diet rich in poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) from soybean oil reduces serum total cholesterol, LDL-C and HDL-C, but not the level of LDL oxidation. Adding barley grass juice powder to the soybean oil-enriched diet enhances its cholesterol-lowering effect and lowers LDL oxidation. While mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) from olive oil had no effect on total serum cholesterol, LDL-C or HDL-C, MUFA lowered the oxidation of LDL and this effect was enhanced by the addition of barley grass juice powder. Therefore, together with a diet rich in poly- or mono-unsaturated fatty acids, 15 g of barley grass juice powder per day as part of the diet may help support cardiovascular activity by promoting normal cholesterol levels and reducing the oxidation of LDL.

LDL Cholesterol and LDL Oxidation Reduced in Type 2 Diabetic Patients Receiving an Olive Oil-enriched Diet Supplemented with Barley Grass Juice.

Yu YM and Tsai CE. LDL cholesterol and oxidation are significantly reduced in type 2 diabetic patients receiving a barley leaf essence supplemented olive oil diet. Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry [published by The Chinese Institute of Food Science and Technology] Vol. 5 (1): 1-6 (2003).

SUMMARY: An intake of olive oil together with a dietary supplement of young barley grass juice may be useful as part of the nutritional management of patients with type 2 diabetes since it increases the monounsaturated fatty acid composition of LDL, decreases whole blood free radical activities, increases the vitamin E content of LDL, and reduces the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation.

Barley Grass Juice Powder, Alone or in Combination with Vitamins C and E, Lowers Free Radical Activity and Inhibits LDL Oxidation in Type 2 Diabetes.

Yu YM, Chang WC, Chang CT, Hsieh CL, and Tsai CE. Effects of barley leaf extract and antioxidative vitamins on LDL oxidation and free radical scavenging activities in type 2 diabetes. Diabetes Metab Vol. 28 (2): 107-114 (2002).

SUMMARY: The results indicate that supplementation with barley grass juice may help to lower cholesterol, scavenge oxygen free radicals, spare the LDL-vitamin E content, and inhibit LDL oxidation. Furthermore, there appears to be a synergistic inhibition of small, dense-LDL oxidation with the combination of barley grass juice and vitamins C and E, an effect that may promote good vascular function.

Barley Grass Juice or Adlay Reduces Plasma Lipids and LDL Oxidation in Hyperlipidemic Smokers and Non- Smokers.

Yu YM, Chang WC, Liu CS and Tsai CM. Effects of young barley leaf extract and adlay on plasma lipids and LDL oxidation in hyperlipidemic smokers. Biol. Pharm. Bull. Vol. 27 (6): 802-805 (2004).

SUMMARY: Supplementation with either BL or adlay can decrease total and LDL cholesterol as well as susceptibility of LDL-C to oxidation in hyperlipidemic smokers and non-smokers. Barley leaf extract (barley grass juice) had a stronger antioxidative effect than adlay and the effects of either BL or adlay are less pronounced in smokers

Note: The barley grass juice powder (referred to as “barley leaf essence”, “barley leaf extract”, or “barley leaf”) used in all four of the studies described was provided by YH Products, the manufacturing division of Green Foods Corporation, located in Oxnard, California.
