Nineteen amino acids are found in barley grass including all eight of the essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are essential for continual cell building, and regeneration, as well as energy production, immune function and detoxification.

However, due to its detoxifying properties it is best to start at a low dosage and gradually increase the dosage to avoid any detoxification symptoms. Common symptoms of detoxification include headache, fatigue, flatulence, increased bowel movements and water excretion. These symptoms should cease within 24-48 hours, however many people do not suffer any detoxification symptoms at all. Ensure you drink plenty of filtered water and eat a healthy diet to support your body's detoxification efforts.
