Why Eat Barley?

Simple dietary changes can often help prevent health concerns or reduce their symptoms. I often recommend adding certain foods to the diet as a way to address specific ailments or diseases, or in some cases, they may also be soothing.

Barley is one of these foods - this low glycemic-index grain, which contains calcium, phosphorus and B vitamins, has been shown to be helpful for a variety of health issues, including:

  1. Constipation
  2. Diverticulitis
  3. Gout
  4. Inflammation
  5. Arthritis
  6. Multiple sclerosis
  7. High cholesterol

Barley is a key ingredient in many healthful recipes on, including Barley Vegetable Soup.
