Hard work. Quality. Nature Unadulterated. These are the values infused in every canister of AIM’s BarleyLife. To meet these high standards, we use only the fresh juice from the raw leaves of the young barley plant.
This is not because it’s easier. Harvesting the juice from leaves of adult barley grass would be less labor intensive, and because adult plants are larger, we’d be able to harvest barley juice at greater volumes which means higher yields, if, you know, we were willing to compromise quality for a quick cash grab.
But we’re not.
We’re interested only in providing the most powerful, nutritious and unsullied product on the market, and it starts with the young barley plant.
When the barley plant is younger, the whole machinery of the plant is dedicated to growth and to the repair of errors related to the growth process. The young plants’ metabolic processes are in full swing, and they are chock-full of enzymes and small molecular compounds dedicated to the growth process. Harvesting the plants while at this stage ensures these important compounds are at peak levels.
Adult plants, in contrast, dedicate their energies to producing their grain heads and to the conservation of cellular energy. Many of the phytonutrients, compounds and enzymes found in the juvenile plant are no longer active. The older plants aren’t preparing for growth. They are, in fact, reverting to a dormant state to conserve energy or readying themselves for death.
Our harvesting processes ensures that AIM provides the highest-quality materials from these living, growing, green leaves complete with their natural enzymes, phytonutrients and molecular compounds to ensure maximum nutritional benefits and quality.
