Benefits of barley/Jau


Barley is rich in both macro- and micro-nutrients: carbohydrate, protein, soluble and insoluble fibers, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, magnesium, selenium, lignans (antioxidants)

Its high fiber content can help in boosting your gut health by improving the bowel function and maintaining good balance of gut bacteria.

Its fiber content also helps to reduce your hunger pangs, and promote weight loss.

Jau is rich in β-glucans which promotes the reduction of LDL cholesterol by binding to bile acids which is then removed from body.


So, the liver uses up more cholesterol to form new bile acids, hence lowering cholesterol.

Lowering the LDL cholesterol ultimately helps in reducing risk of CVD (Cardiovascular Diseases)

Magnesium present helps in improving insulin secretion, and the binding of soluble fiber with water while moving through our GI tract, slower the absorption rate of sugar in the blood vessels- hence protecting against diabetes.
