Barley water is an incredible remedy or an elixir to good health. Barley water ranks high in the category of healthy beverages because it is loaded with essential nutrients. Since barley is a good source of soluble and insoluble fibre, vitamins, essential minerals (calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, zinc and copper), anti-oxidants and phytochemicals which are believed to lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes, barley water too draws out these benefits to make itself a health booster. What's even better is Barley drink has the incredible effects of lower down cholesterol and blood sugar as well as promote weight loss.
We use both Chinese Barley and Holland Barley. Chinese Barley is good for improving urinary system, removing body "dampness" while Holland Barley removes body heatiness, relieving dry throat. On top of that, we add pandan leaves to enhance the smell and taste of the natural barley and a small amount of lemon juice to give it a dose of Vitamin C.
Upon opening, please refrigerate and consume within 24 hours.
