What’s in barley grass?
Green barley grass includes:
- Chlorophyll, a compound noted for detoxifying.*
- Amino acids (the building blocks of life), that promote healthy cell metabolism and circulation.*
- Dietary fiber that supports colon health.*
Varying amounts of these nutrients are present in dark green, leafy vegetables — for example, broccoli, spinach, kale and mustard greens. Although you’d have to eat plenty of vegetables to receive the recommended amounts — more than you would ever consume on a regular basis. But you can add to your vegetable intake by making Jade GreenZymes a part of your daily nutrition.

A lifetime of research led to the perfect food
Jade GreenZymes is the inspiration of a Japanese medical scientist, Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara. With degrees in medicine and pharmacology, Dr. Hagiwara devoted his life’s work to find a natural substance that would promote health — with ingredients that help support the body’s nutritional needs. Dr. Hagiwara authored or collaborated on hundreds of scientific papers documenting his research on green barley grass. His work with the UC Davis Department of Environmental Toxicology and numerous technical and scientific organizations has resulted in scientific discoveries related to green barley grass and human physiology. Dr. Hagiwara’s research findings related to the material in Jade GreenZymes have appeared in many scientific publications, including the following:
- Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture
- Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry
- Journal of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan
- The Japanese Journal of Inflammation
- The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry
- FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) Journal
Today, largely as a result of Dr. Hagiwara’s research, barley grass is accepted internationally as a source of nutrition for good health.
The power of Jade GreenZymes®
Nikken Jade GreenZymes is more than a vitamin. More than a nutritional product. Evidence suggests that it is nature’s perfect food. Certified-organic Jade GreenZymes offers a combination of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and more. It’s a unique product— the concentrated essence of green barley grass, a plant food recognized as an amazing natural wonder. Organic green barley grass is easily absorbed.* Its nutrients can help compensate for a less-than-perfect diet. Ingredients in Jade GreenZymes support a healthy immune system, assist in detoxifying — and even include antioxidants associated with helping the body to protect itself against premature aging.*
Enzymes for good health
Jade GreenZymes is unsurpassed in the array of healthful enzymes represented in every serving. Enzymes are necessary for a number of body functions:
- They oxidize fatty acids.*
- Enzymes aid in ridding the body of waste and in maintaining healthy bones and tissues.*
- Alkaline enzymes can help to balance or neutralize excess acidity.*
Green barley grass is loaded with natural enzymes. But these compounds are destroyed or broken down by heat. Only Jade GreenZymes uses specially developed cold processing, a method of preparation that helps preserve the enzymes for your benefit.
Antioxidants fight against free radicals — and aging
Scientists have studied the relationship between barley grass ingredients and the body’s immune system, oxidation, cell health and more. Plant research performed at the University of California at Davis found that green barley grass juice contains strong antioxidant phytochemicals — including very high levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD). Antioxidants are recognized as the body’s first line of defense against free radicals. Harmful free radical molecules can cause cell damage, which in turn may lead to premature aging and other health challenges. Consuming foods rich in antioxidants can help support the body’s resistance to these challenges.* Superoxide dismutase and the nutrients that are in Jade GreenZymes are another reason to add this superfood to your diet.
Barely grass comes from a pure source
For Jade GreenZymes, only young barley is used because that is when the grass is at its most alive with nutrients. This all-natural, healthy organic material is carefully harvested, using traditional methods. The result is the principal ingredient in Jade GreenZymes. Jade GreenZymes is fresh. Some barley grass powders advertise a long shelf life — which means that preservative agents are used in their manufacture. Jade GreenZymes has the clean taste and full balance of enzymes provided by organically sourced green barley grass, packaged at the peak of freshness. Occasional slight variations in color, taste, consistency or solubility are the result of varying chlorophyll content between different harvests and reflect the authentic character of the ingredients
Greenzymes barely brass is carefully created
The cold processing method used to prepare Jade GreenZymes — which protects its natural enzymes — is unique. First, the barley grass is carefully washed to remove any impurities. A press extracts juice from the leaves, and the pulp is discarded. For Jade GreenZymes, only the juice is used — it contains the highest concentration of vitamins and minerals. Then, spray-drying preserves the nutrient value of the juice, unlike the heat process used by other producers. The resulting powder retains the natural goodness of the plant. For its ingenious approach to nutrient preservation, this remarkable processing technology received an award from the leading technical and engineering society in Japan.
How is Jade GreenZymes different from other barley grasses?
Jade GreenZymes is more than barley grass. It offers a blend of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals essential for good health. These ingredients are in the formulation of Jade GreenZymes:
- Young barley grass juice
- Nikken Proprietary Blend:
- Organic maltodextrin
- Organic acacia fiber
- Organic pearl barley seed extract powder
This combination is exclusive to Kenzen Jade GreenZymes. The young barley grass juice acts synergistically with the other ingredients. The pearl barley seed extract contains additional enzymes. The water-soluble fiber helps maintain regularity and adheres to toxins, helping remove them.*
Jade GreenZymes is the supreme development in barley nutrition science.
