Barleygreen is a whole food concentrate; that is, it is as close to its natural state as possible and thus supplies the nutrients in a natural proportion.

This is what attracted Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, the creator of Barleygreen, to barley; a vision of totality, not individual pieces: "Barleygreen should not be recognized by discussing the amount of its vitamins and minerals. The era of focusing on a single vitamin or mineral is gone...much more attention is being focused on biological phenomenon."

Before deciding on using the barley plant, Dr. Hagiwara looked at all green plants in Japan, and then narrowed his search down to 150 leafy green varieties. He found many plants with satisfactory nutrition, but none that covered as wide a spectrum of nutrients as green barley. A Herculean task? Yes, but in a way this was the easy part.

Getting the nutrients from the plant to people was another matter. Dr. Hagiwara struggled at first. "I was told by people who used my product that it was not effective." He accepted this challenge and kept working, eventually discovering that, "I was subjecting the barley to too much heat...killing the active ingredients." To avoid this, Dr. Hagiwara created a secret and patented drying process, guaranteeing that all active nutrients remained active.

Dr. Hagiwara's quest to make the best possible product has resulted in a manufacturing process that uses the most expensive and sophisticated processing plant in the green juice industry. However, this is not enough. The search to make Barleygreen even better continues, which is why 10 percent of the wholesale price is dedicated to green barley research.

Today, barley for Barleygreen is grown in Oxnard, California. Before choosing this site, extensive research was performed: Dr. Hagiwara says, "We tested soil from ten different states and grew samples of several types of barley grass to compare nutrient levels before selecting the one that would give us superior results. We gave careful consideration to climate, environmental conditions, and water supplies.... The barley grass that we are growing in Oxnard consistently shows higher nutrient levels than that grown in Japan."

The result of all of this - over 20 years of research; the ideal location to cultivate barley; the green barley leaves, rich in nutrients; and the sophisticated manufacturing process - is Barleygreen, the best green juice product there is.
