Barley

Many people have heard of barley, but may rarely know what barley is and what it does. Barley is a major cereal grain and is found in many “multi-grain” applications. It is also used in animal food (specifically for cows, horses, and similar livestock), as the base of fermentation in beer, and as a part of various health food. Soups, stews, breads, and cereals may also contain barley.

What you may not know is that barley is also used in a medicinal context. The fiber in barley can help in a number of ways, which we’re going to take a brief look at.

The fibers in barley can help lower blood sugar; frequently, people who are pre-diabetic or are at risk will increase their barley intake to help keep their blood sugar levels level. It is suggested that the reason that barley helps with blood sugar is because it helps to slow down the emptying of the stomach, which allows sugars to be absorbed into the blood stream more efficiently.

Barley and other whole grains are used to lower cholesterol; that is why many doctors and dieticians will recommend that you add whole grains to your diet as you get older.

Barley can help with circulation and promotes good heart health.

Barley is known to reduce blood pressure, and is usually recommended as part of the diet for those who are struggling with hypertension.

Digestive complaints may be reduced by eating barley.

The vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins, and fatty oils contained in barley are often hailed for being helpful in the process of losing weight.

Barley is almost always a component in topical solutions that are used for the treatment of boils. It helps to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with boils.
