Cholesterol Reducing Barley Grass
A study published in the June 2004 issue of “Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin” enrolled 40 participants with hyperlipidemia, or high levels of blood fats such as cholesterol and triglycerides. These individuals took either 15 g of young barley leaf extract or 60 g of adlay, the seeds of a type of wild grass, per day for four weeks. Both groups experienced decreases in total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, cholesterol, the so-called “bad” cholesterol. Barley grass and adlay also inhibited harmful oxidation of LDL cholesterol. The antioxidant effect was weaker in smokers than in non-smokers. Drugs.com notes that the cholesterol-lowering effects of barley grass are partly due to the beta-sitosterol component, which inhibits intestinal absorption of cholesterol.
