WHAT DOES BEING OVER ACIDIC MEAN? A typical western diet for many people consists of up to 90% acid-forming foods and drinks like white bread, sugar, takeaways, fried, processed or refined foods, tea, coffee, cigarettes and alcohol. Overeating and the increased ingestion of the typical acidic western diet are the key reasons for people becoming over-acidic. Health and vitality is encouraged in a naturally alkaline environment.
WHY IS THE ACID-ALKALINE BALANCE IMPORTANT? The body's acid-alkaline balance is vitally important to our overall health but is often overlooked when health problems are addressed. The human body is perpetually in a changing state between acid and alkaline. This is largely determined by the food we eat, as foods are either acid forming or alkaline-forming. However, this is not to be confused with the immediate acidity of a food. Lemons for example, are considered acid due to their citric acid content and taste but lemons, once metabolized, actually leave an alkaline residue in the body. To optimize our health and well being, the ideal balance of food and food residue in the body is 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. The human body is continually working to maintain its ideal pH level of between 7.36 and 7.42.
RESTORING THE ACID/ALKALINE BALANCE Babies are born in a very alkaline state and over time we generally become more and more acidic. However, all is not lost - the body can regain its natural alkaline balance through eating highly alkaline foods such as green leafy vegetables, fresh seasonal fruits, pulses and nutrient-rich super foods like Lifestream Barley Grass. The key is changing the amounts and balance of the foods you eat and getting to know which foods are acid forming and which are alkaline-forming.
1. 100% CERTIFIED ORGANIC Lifestream Barley Grass is independently certified organic by Agriquality NZ. It contains no pesticides, chemicals, herbicides, synthetic additives or fillers and most importantly, the plants are not chlorine washed.
2. HIGHEST NUTRITIONAL LEVELS One of the best markers for quality with Barley Grass is the levels of chlorophyll that are left after the harvesting and processing has taken place. A high chlorophyll level dictates a premium quality product. Lifestream Barley Grass has the richest chlorophyll levels of 20mg per 2 grams. This shows the positive flow on effect of correct growing practices, high quality plants and gentle, natural drying processes.
3. PREMIUM QUALITY Lifestream Barley Grass is harvested and flash air dried immediately after being transferred into the drying facility. Our commitment is to ensure the living enzymes and nutrients are not damaged or compromised. This is your assurance of premium quality processing and handling.
4. 100% PURE WHOLE LEAF POWDER Unlike many other barley grass products, Lifestream Barley Grass contains no bulking agents like corn syrup solids, genetically engineered maltodextrin or rice flour. We believe that the fibre content is an essential part of this wonderful food and so nothing has been added and no fibre has been removed. Lifestream Barley Grass is up to 39% pure fibre.
5. GLUTEN FREE Lifestream Barley Grass is gluten free and suitable for celiacs as well as those with gluten or wheat intolerance.
6. EXCLUSIVE NUTRITIONAL ANALYSIS We at Lifestream believe that if we supply a product then it must reach extremely high exacting standards of quality, nutrition and purity. This is why we have had our Lifestream Barley Grass independently analysed and scrutinised for nutritional levels after harvesting and processing. We only rely on analysis that has been carried out on Lifestream High Potency Barley Grass.
7. PEAK POTENCY HARVESTING Lifestream Barley Grass plants are harvested at peak nutritional potency before the jointing has occurred. We do this because after the jointing stage, the plants start to use their abundant stores of nutrients for the development, growth and preparation of the head of grain. Timing here is crucial for the nutritional values to be at their maximum.
8. PURE NEW ZEALAND GROWN Lifestream Barley Grass is grown outside in the natural sunshine for over 90 days in the beautiful fresh pastures of South Canterbury in the pristine South Island farmlands.
9. VEGETARIAN & G.E.FREE All Lifestream Barley products are vegetarian, dairy free, G.E.Free and available in vegetarian capsules for convenience or powder to make delicious fruit smoothies.

This is essential to us as we have an exemplary reputation internationally for supplying only the best quality naturally grown superfoods available.
