    Green Foods - Barley Dog - 3 oz. (85g)

    Green Foods - Barley Dog is for  dogs which instinctively eat fresh green grass which is rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. The problem with eating whole grass is that each blade is covered with microscopic barbs that can cause stomach and throat irritation. Since we use only fresh juice - without the barbs - our barley grass powder is good for your pet…and your carpet.

    • With the pesticides and other chemicals applied to lawns and fields these days, it may be harmful for cats to eat fresh grass. That is why Barley Cat is an ideal supplement for pets.

    • Our barley grass powder is loaded with active enzymes that are often missing in today's processed cat foods. Sprinkling Barley Cat on your cat's food will not only enhance the taste, but may also enhance nutrient absorption

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q. What makes Green Magma (GM) different from other barley products in the market?
    A.
    GM is a natural concentrated whole food and its nutrients are in their natural, biologically active states. Many supplements, including multi-vitamin and mineral pills contain synthetic ingredients.
    A. Most grass powders are processed by dehydrating the whole leaf without separating the pulp from the juice. The result is a product that contains a high concentration of insoluble fiber compared to soluble juice nutrients. The nutrients remaining in the powder may be trapped inside the insoluble fiber which the human body cannot breakdown because we lack the enzyme cellulase. Therefore, the amount of nutrition that is absorbed and utilized by consuming whole leaf fiber powders is less compared to the nutrients that we absorb from consuming GM.
    A. GM is USDA organic - certified by QAI.
    A. GM is 100% GMO-Free. Since there are no long-term studies on the effects of genetically modified produce, humans are being subjected to potentially short- and long-term harmful effects of consuming these foods.

    Q. How can I tell if there is fiber in the product?
    A.
    Place 1/2 tsp. of Green Magma™ or a competitor's product in a glass of cold water and stir. After several minutes, Green Magma will remain dissolved and the solution will appear uniformly green from top to bottom while a competitor's product containing fiber will appear light at the top and dark on the bottom from the settling of fiber.

    Q. What is the difference between wheat grass and barley grass products?
    A.
    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.

    Q. Does GM have the same concentration of nutrients as a multi-vitamin?
    A.
    GM contains a greater diversity of nutrients than multi-vitamins. It is this combination of many nutrients working together synergistically that allows their products to give you the ultimate in nutrition just like nature intended.

    Q. Is there a difference between GM tablets and GM powder?
    A.
    They are identical in nutrition; however we may assimilate GM in the powder form a little more rapidly but not necessarily more completely.

    Q. Why is there maltodextrin in their products?
    A.
    The maltodextrin acts as a protective barrier around the nutrients in GM and prevents their oxidation, thereby protecting them until GM is dissolved in a liquid. If they did not add maltodextrin to GM and their other barley products, the nutrients in them would be subject to oxidation thereby destroying its nutritive value.

    Q. What is the difference between Green Magma and Magma Plus?
    A.
    Green Magma is made from barley grass juice while Magma Plus contains barley grass juice plus extracts of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and other nutritious, natural ingredients. Both products provide active enzymes while Magma Plus adds more ingredients for those looking for a supplement with greater variety and additional nutrients.

    Q. What is the difference between Green Magma and Veggie Magma?
    A.
    In addition to nutrient-rich barley grass juice, Veggie Magma also contains 16 other vegetables including broccoli sprouts to provide additional health benefits.

    Q. What benefits does GM provide?
    A.
    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 toxins and protection from free radicals. GM and each of their other products promote and enhance each of these components of good nutrition.

    Q. Does GM contain digestive enzymes?
    A.
    Yes, GM contains many enzymes including digestive enzymes such as amylase. Our bodies use enzymes for everything ranging from digestion to regulating hormone production and are the catalysts for all metabolic activity in the body. Without them, life would not be possible. Even though our bodies contain thousands of different types of enzymes, most foods we eat are processed and cooked, which renders them devoid of all enzymes. We can obtain active enzymes from fresh, raw food. GM is a source of hundreds of active enzymes.

    Q. How are the enzymes protected during processing?
    A.
    First, they use low temperature-controlled processing techniques so that the enzymes are not destroyed by heat. Second, they add maltodextrin; a complex carbohydrate that coats and protects the enzymes preventing them from reacting with one another or becoming oxidized.

    Q. How can I test to see if the enzymes are still active?
    A.
    Hot Water Test: Sprinkle ½ tsp of GM or a competitor's product into a glass of very hot water and briefly stir. GM will clump up because the active enzymes are being denatured by heat for the first time, whereas the competitor's product will disperse and not clump up because the enzymes have already been exposed to heat and will not change shape when heated again.

    Q. Does GM contain antioxidants?
    A.
    Yes, GM contains carotenoids (alpha-carotene and beta-carotene), flavonoids (saponarin and lutonarin), vitamin C, vitamin E, chlorophyll, antioxidant enzymes (SOD and catalase), and selenium. Both laboratory and clinical studies at major universities have shown that GM inhibits the oxidation of skin lipids and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and reduces the oxidation of fats and free radical activity in the blood.

    Q. What do antioxidants do?
    A.
    Antioxidants are certain phytonutrients that neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules that are extremely reactive and cause damage to our cellular membranes, DNA, and blood vessels causing them to function improperly. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals before they can do any damage and thus help to maintain normal functioning of the cell.

    Q. Does GM have detoxifying properties?
    A.
    Yes, GM contains chlorophyll and other substances that promote the release of toxins from the tissues so they may be expelled by the body. This is a natural process that must occur on a daily basis so that the body does not accumulate toxins

    Q. What does the chlorophyll do?
    A.
    The chlorophyll content of GM is a natural detoxifier and helps eliminate toxins from the intestines and other tissues. Because it is a natural detoxifier, it also aids in reducing bad breath. Chlorophyll also acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. There is also scientific evidence that chlorophyll may increase oxygenation of our tissues by increasing the formation of oxygen-carrying red blood cells.

    Q. Why is GM so green?
    A.
    The deep green color is from chlorophyll. Barley grass has one of the highest, natural, rich chlorophyll contents of all green vegetables. In fact, Barley Grass has 66 times more chlorophyll than spinach.

    Q. Are all Green Foods' products alkaline (important for people with acid reflux or hiatal hernias)?
    A.
    Yes, relative to the pH of the stomach, their products are alkaline, ranging from pH 6.8-7.4.

    Q. Can GM be helpful to losing weight?
    A.
    Yes, GM has only 20 calories per serving along with an abundance of nutrients. If you are in a weight loss program, your body will benefit by taking GM. It provides vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and proteins, no fat and practically no calories.

    Q. Is GM a meal replacement for fasting?
    A.
    GM is a nutrient-rich perfect supplement for a weight loss program. It may be used as a substitute for one meal during the day. However, GM is a dietary supplement and not meant for use as a meal substitute on a permanent basis.

    Q. Does the barley grass in GM contain gluten?
    A.
    No. The powdered juice is taken from the barley grass and not the barley grain. Unlike the grain, the grass does not contain gluten.

    Q. Is it safe to consume the maltodextrin in Green Magma if I am diabetic?
    A.
    Diabetics and other people with blood sugar disorders can safely use GM. Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate, not a simple sugar. It releases energy slowly and will not raise sugar levels.

    Q. Does GM affect regularity?
    A.
    GM will help rebuild healthy intestinal flora and therefore may have a positive effect on regularity and gas. GM has traditionally been used to promote regularity and does not cause constipation.

    Q. Can children take GM?
    A.
    Yes. they suggest giving children under 10 years ½ teaspoon in their favorite juice. For children 10 years or older, a regular serving size is fine.

    Q. GM makes me feel so energetic, does it contain any caffeine?
    A.
    No, GM is made from organic barley grass juice, which contains no caffeine. Since GM contains nutrients necessary for producing the body's energy molecule, ATP, after taking it for a week or more you will notice an increase in energy levels

    Q. What is the carbohydrate and sugar content in GM?
    A.
    Two teaspoons of GM contain small amounts of natural plant sugars and only four grams of carbohydrates. GM is safe for anyone who is concerned about blood sugar levels.

    Q. What is the best way to take GM?
    A.
    GM is best taken on an empty stomach, either 20 minutes before a meal or 2 hours after; that way the food does not interfere with the digestion and absorption of GM's nutrients. You should mix GM with either cold or room temperature liquids, as hot liquids will break down and destroy the live enzymes.

    Q. Is it possible to overdose on GM?
    A.
    GM is not a drug but rather a whole food extract made from freshly squeeze barley grass. It is unlikely that you would ever overdose on Green Magma anymore than you would overdose on green salads.

    Q. Should GM be mixed in non-acidic juice?
    A.
    Although the nutrients and enzymes in GM will usually stay intact and active longer in water or a non-acidic juice, as long as you drink it within 15 minutes of mixing, you may use any fruit or vegetable juice.

    Q. Is it effective to take GM with other Green Foods' products?
    A.
    Yes. Many people mix Green Foods' products together in one drink. Mixing their products together is a convenient way to ensure you receive the needed RDI of many essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.

    Q. Is it okay to take multi-vitamins with GM?
    A.
    Yes, you may take multi-vitamins along with GM. GM is a natural whole food product, which is derived from fresh barley grass and will not interfere with your multi-vitamins. In fact, many nutrients are known to work together synergistically; nutrients utilized in conjunction with one another may have a more beneficial effect than if taken individually.

    Q. Will taking your products with meals hinder their effectiveness?
    A.
    It is fine to take their products with or without meals. However, to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients in GM and their other products, it is best to take them on an empty stomach since food will prevent a portion of their nutrients from being absorbed.

    Q. Is it safe to take other supplements when I am taking GM?
    A.
    GM is safe to take with other supplements since it is a whole food extract and compatible with any supplements you are taking.

    Q. Can I use GM as a prenatal supplement?
    A.
    Yes, GM provides a rich balance of essential nutrients. One serving of GM is equivalent to a salad of dark green vegetables in regards to nutrition. It is a safe, natural, and nutritious supplement for prenatal care.

    Q. Will GM upset my stomach?
    A.
    No, GM is mildly alkaline and helps to balance an acid stomach. If you have a chronic stomach condition, please consult your health care practitioner.

    Q. Will GM stay fresh after opening?
    A.
    Yes. The maltodextrin acts as a protective barrier around the nutrients in GM and prevents their oxidation; thereby protecting them until GM is dissolved in a liquid. However, they recommend consuming the GM within a month of opening.

    Q. How should I store GM?
    A.
    GM should be protected from moisture, sunlight, and excess heat. It should be stored in its own jar in their cupboard with the lid tightened securely. They do not recommend storing GM in the refrigerator where condensation may occur and cause nutrients to oxidize and break down.

    Q. Can I mix up a large amount of GM and keep it in the refrigerator?
    A.
    Not advised. Active nutrients are released when GM is mixed with the liquids and should be taken within 10-15 minutes after preparation. When active nutrients are no longer protected by being in a dry state and by the maltodextrin coating, they will begin to oxidize and degrade.

    Q. How long does GM retain its nutrition?
    A.
    GM has a shelf life of 3 years from the date of manufacture.

      I recommend this product!
      My 10 year old Mastiff mix had slowed significantly down. He had little interest in playing when I read that "even old dogs revive with this product" I was not disappointed. Old Rudy has turned back the clock after the first canister of this product. I am thrilled. His coat is lusterous and his energy is like his old self! I highly reccommend this product!
