Dr. Atkins on Barley

The following article is an excerpt from Dr. Atkins' Vita Nutrient Solution:

Barley and Wheat Grass Juice: the essence of sprouting grains

"King Nebuchadnezzar of ancient Babylonia ate nothing but grasses for seven years to regain his health and mental clarity. I don't know if he started the first fad diet, but I do suspect that his meal plan represented the first medicinal use of cereal grasses."

"Right out of the ground, wheat, barley, kamut, and other grains are extraordinarily high in vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, amino acids, and other nutrients. As the grains grow, their carbohydrate counts increase and the nutrient concentration declines considerably. By the time they're harvested, milled, processed, and packaged, they hold little or none of their initial nutritional value. However, ingesting concentrated forms of he young sprouts gives us a wonderful array of the whole food's therapeutic support."

"Lab analysis show that extracts of wheat grass and barley contain compounds that may help protect cells from becoming cancerous. Although we don't know if long-term use will actually prevent cancer in people, scientists have verified that the protective action is unique to the grasses and independent of any nutrient. The immune system also benefits."

Supplement suggestions

"Barley and wheat grass extracts are available in tablet and powdered form, but devotees insist that freshly juiced beverages, often called "green drinks" are more therapeutic. The taste can be hard to take, yet many of my patients have reported overcoming serious illnesses by going on a fast that's punctuated with green juices. The powders and juices usually contain other healthful ingredients, such as herbal extracts and chlorella."

"The concept of green drinks blends well with my overall dietary recommendations, although I suggest checking labels to see that the tonics or powders are low in carbohydrates and do not contain apple juice or other natural sweeteners. Even people who are sensitive to wheat can consume these products, because the proteins that might trigger allergic reactions have not yet formed in the young grasses."
