Always stir Barley Gold into liquids just before consumption.
Best to take in the morning, when you first awake, but you can take it any time you wish.
Barley Gold is a flour-like powder and takes on the taste of whatever you put into, making it easy to camouflage for children in yogurt, or even in a sandwich.
Try it in most any beverage - juice, your favorite smoothie or nut-milk.
Stir it into your cereal or cooled porridge, but do not put it in anything over 35 degrees Celsius (105 degrees F). So do not microwave, cook or bake with Barley Gold.
Start with 1/2 teaspoon per day, for the first week, then double your intake every week, until you are taking 2 tablespoons per day.
Maintenance requirements differ based on weight and athletic activities. Gauge your need based on hunger and fullness after consuming Barley Gold.
Note for Athlete
Barley Gold will release energy over a period of time, so you can go longer and farther without the crash that comes with high carbohydrate foods. This nutritious and highly digestible protein will give you energy needed immediately, and you also have material to build new tissues. Athletes should increase their consumption leading up to competition - up to 6 teaspoons per day.
High Glycemic quick results with low glycemic endurance!
- All teaspoons should be measured flat, not rounded nor heaping
- Do not heat Barley Gold above 35 degrees Celsius (96 degrees Fahrenheit), so do not microwave, cook or bake with it.
- Gluten intolerant and very ill persons may want to start with 1/4 teaspoon or less, depending on their condition. Double your intake weekly until up to the 2 tablespoon mark.
- Animals' needs are based on their weight. Start slow and increase weekly.
Once you are fully ramped up and able to maintain six teaspoons (two tablespoons) every day, know that it's important to maintain this full dosage every day, for at least three months to get all of the benefits.
The Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush
Barley Gold has been used in a study by nutritionists in Toronto, Canada as a nutritional supplement taken during a fasting/cleansing regime, and has shown rapid healing and weight loss by putting the body in an Alkaline, thus healing, state.
The idea of Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush was:
"To subsist entirely on a food substance which is rumored to have a useful way of promoting healthy function in organ and tissue systems, while restoring dysfunctional cells."
Each applicant was given a short questionnaire, a nutritional evaluation and consultation, EAC Testing (electro-dermal), daily record charts and a self-assessment report.
Before starting, you must have increased up to the maximum 2 tablespoons/week. During the Flush, substitute meals with Barley Gold, and consume only raw fruits, vegetables and juicing along with Barley Gold for a minimum of 2 weeks.
Store Barley Gold in a sealed container at room temperature. If your climate is quite humid, keep it sealed in the fridge.
Do not leave Barley Gold in an overheated car, or in any heat above 35 degrees C (105 degrees F).
Freezing Barley Gold is fine, but will not extend its life expectancy, which is up to 3 years - a remarkable shelf life due to our natural Nutrient Stabilization Process.
