Stevia as sweetener to Sante Pure Barley products

Stevia is a small shrub like perennial plant which belongs to sunflower (Asteraceae) family. It is also known as Eupatorium rebaudianum, sweetleaf, honeyleaf and sugarleaf, and sweet herb of Paraguay. The leaves of Stevia are a source of natural zero-calorie sweetener which is considered sweeter than sugar (sucrose). It has been used in South and Central America , Japan and many other parts of the world as a sugar substitute and in the treatment of a number of health conditions for centuries. Initially the leaves of Stevia were consumed fresh or dried but eventually chemists isolated the glycosides called stevioside and rebaudioside from its leaves that give stevia its sweet taste. Stevia also contains phytonutrients, trace elements, minerals, vitamins and volatile oils which give Stevia its nutritional and medicinal properties. In 2008, FDA (The Food and Drug Administration) approved sweetener derived from the herb stevia as safe for use in foods and beverages. The steviols glycosides are now used in herbal supplements, foods and beverages, and as sweetening powders and syrups. Unlike other sweeteners, Stevia can be used in baking and cooking and its lesser amount is ample.

How Pure Barley Helps Combat Diseases


- Barley contains enzymes such as Fatty Acid Oxidase, Peroxidase, Catalase, Cytochrome Oxidase and Transhydrogenase that cause decomposition of fats in our bodies.

- It has chlorophyll which cuts excess cholesterol and triglycerides and other lipids.

- It contains soluble fiber which helps metabolize fats, cholesterol andcarbohydrates.

- It contains Arginine (14.3mg/g) at higher amounts which keep the blood vessels elastic, keeping the blood flow smoothly, melts away plaque that exists in blood vessels and also reduces blood clots and bad cholesterol.

- Formation of Procollagen Type IV prevents the formation of plaque (atherosclerotic plaques) in the blood vessels.


- Barley contains a high amount of Arginine (14.3mg/g) and this amino acid is used to release insulin from the

pancreas and help increase glucose uptake in the muscle cells.

- It has Chromium that increases the ability of insulin to bind to cells and leads to increase insulin sensitivity

of the body tissues. It makes the body more efficient in absorbing the blood sugar. It acts as a “Travel
Guide”, opening the door for the insulin to enter into the body cells. It lowers blood sugar and insulin levels
in people with type II diabetes.
- It has Vanadium which activates insulin receptors, making the beta cell of the pancreas produce more
insulin, resulting in the decrease of blood sugar.


- Barley is good for cancer because of the presence of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) which restores the

functions and repairs the body’s DNA to prevent cancer cells from developing. SOD is also a free radical

scavenger of tumor cells.

- It is also good for cancer due to the presence of P4D1 enzyme which destroys cancer cells and at the
same time immediately repairs damaged DNA molecules of the cells.
- It contains a high amount of Potassium (3,800mg/100g) which is very important in preventing new growth
and multiplication of cancer cells.
- It contains Peroxidase enzyme which breaks and neutralizes the carcinogenic black color substance in
grilled meat and fish.

- Barley contains a high amount of Vitamin C (548mg/100g) plus the four important Amino Acids (Proline,

Lysine, Arginine, and Glycine) which are necessary for the formation or production of procollagen to

produce Type I and Type II collagen needed in rebuilding damaged cartilage and tendons in joints.

- Lysine increases the production of procollagen which helps in rebuilding new bones, tendon cells, and
cartilage tissue and in turn for the healing of wounds.
- Proline is a component of cartilage for healthy joints and ligaments.
- Organic Sodium (775mg/10g) which dissolves calcium deposited in the joints.

- The presence of Glysine (amino acid), a powerful anti-oxidant, protects the liver cells.
- The presence of 2-O-Glycosylisovitexin prevents the formation of acetaldehyde and malonaldehyde
thereby preventing the formation of fatty liver and liver cirrhosis.


- Barley is good because it contains all the important enzymes, minerals, amino acids, phytochemicals,

phytonutrients, chlorophyll, vitamins which can correct the physiological body disorder.

- It stimulates the production of procollagen Type I which makes the skin smoother and supple.

- It stimulates the production of white blood cells in the bone marrow and T and B cells which fight against
bacterial and viral infection.


- Barley is good for Dysmenorrhea due to the presence of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) which removes or

neutralizes the toxins present in the uterus.

- It stimulates the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter substance that prevents pain during



- Barley is good for Myoma due to the presence of enzymes SOD, Peroxidase, Fatty Acid Oxidase,

Cytochrome Oxidase and Transhydrogenase that can degrade/decompose the myoma and prevent its


- It acts as a scavenger according to Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara.
- It controls the imbalance of progesterone/estrogen ratio that is released from the pituitary glands that
stimulate the growth of myoma.

red blood cells.


- Due to the presence of chlorophyll, Barley has anti-inflammatory properties which prevent inflammation. It

stimulates the receptors of the immune system, especially the bone marrow, to produce white blood cells

against viruses which cause rhinitis.


- Barley contains Carnitine (A.A) which promotes fat burning.

- The presence of Fatty Acid Oxidase, Peroxidase, Catalase and Transhydrogenase enzymes help

breakdown fatty tissues in the body.

- It contains chlorophyll that cuts excess fats (lipids) in the body.


- Barley contains Serotonine (neurotransmitter cells) which controls pain and promotes good sleep and


- It contains Procollagen Type IV which relaxes the brain’s blood vessels from vasoconstriction.


- Barley contains chlorophyll which is a strong deodorizer of the digestive tract.

- The presence of SOD, a powerful anti-oxidant, prevents the decomposition of food in the gastro-intestinal

Barley (Hordeum vulgare) grows in over one hundred countries in the world. It is a grain plant like wheat, cereal, corn and rice.

Barley used to be the most important crop. In the ancient times, barley was regularly served in the variety of bread and porridge. It was Barley and neither wheat nor rice that was the primary grain of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Hebrews during the old ages. Egyptian workers during the ancient times refer to barley as nourishment having merely three loaves of barley bread and beer made from barley a day. One reason it is not surprising that it was mentioned several times in the bible both New and Old Testament.

The immense importance of the said crop in the olden times is irrefutable. A Vedic writing in the Indus Valley mentioned barley and rice as “two immortal sons of heaven.” Emperor Shen Nung of China declared barley as one of the five sacred plants in his country dated 2, 800 B.C. Rice, wheat, millet and soybeans are the other sacred plants that he cited.
Barley is also much selected by the Athletes as the Greeks regard to it as the most strengthening grain. The gladiators of Rome are often named Hordearii or Barley Men since their diet relied on Barley. Sumerians also use barley as a form of money. Barley being used as a monetary exchange was also recorded in Babylonians, Code of Hammurabi dating 1750 B.C. An ancient town in Greece, Eleusis which is no longer in existence today rewards sacks of barley for game winners.

Nonetheless, barley commenced losing its good turn during the advancement of Common Era particularly in Greece and Rome. People at some point in that stage learned that wheat is much better to use in bread making. Wheat has further flavor and can be stored longer due to its more gluten contents. In no time, the production of barley became scarce. Barley then was deemed as the grain of the poor and the wheat for the rich.

At the moment, barley is regarded as the fourth most important crop in the world. It is also at most popular not due to its nutrition but its important disposition in beer production unlike before. While barley still gets into dinner tables such scenario in fact already seldom take place. It is now commonly sold for animal fodder and what's left is for the production of beer.
(ORAC) Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity
- Barley contains 25, 500 Radical Absorbance Capacity per 100 grams.
- The Higher the ORAC Number, the Greater the amount of Antioxidants in the food.
- As per Scientists test tube analysis, No other food can give this antioxidant protection.
- USDA recommends an ORAC unit ingestion of about 3, 000 to 5, 000 units daily.

“Barley Grass is not multi-vitamins. It is a combination of Micro-nutrients. Research has shown that the green leaves of the young Barley plant contain the most prolific balanced supple of nutrients that exist on earth in a single source.” said Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara
