Health Ranger Select Organic Purple Barley Flakes 12 oz (340 g) (6-Pack)
As one of the most nutritious grains on earth, organic purple barley stands out among other varieties of barley not only for its rich, deep purple color due to its high anthocyanin content, but also for its natural abundance of dietary fiber, protein, iron and other vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. In particular, hulless purple barley is more nutrient-dense than its hulled counterpart since no bran is removed and the whole grain kernel remains intact.

Health benefits of purple barley flakes**
Support healthy heart function – According to the FDA, purple barley flakes are a heart-healthy grain that contains an abundance of beta-glucans, a soluble dietary ﬁber that can support healthy cardiovascular function. Purple barley flakes are also packed with a variety of potent antioxidants that can help protect your heart against oxidative stress.
Support healthy digestive function – Because they contain high levels of dietary fiber, purple barley flakes can help nourish your healthy gut flora and support overall digestive health and regular bowel movements. Moreover, the manganese in purple barley flakes can help support optimal nutrient absorption and maintain the healthy production of digestive enzymes within the normal range.
Support healthy immune function – Purple barley flakes are naturally abundant in immune-supporting compounds, such as beta-glucans, manganese, selenium and copper. This superfood is also rich in phenolic compounds and other potent antioxidants that can support your body’s natural defenses by protecting your body from oxidative damage and supporting its overall health.
Support the growth of strong and healthy bones – Due to their high content of bone-supporting nutrients, purple barley flakes can support the growth and development of strong and healthy bones. Some of these bone-supporting nutrients include calcium, manganese and phosphorus.
Support healthy energy levels – Purple barley flakes are a great source of ready-to-use energy. This superfood contains plenty of protein, dietary fiber, manganese and other nutrients that play important roles in your body’s natural energy production process.
Support sensible weight management plans – The high content of beta-glucans and soluble dietary ﬁber in purple barley flakes can help curb your appetite by keeping you feeling full for longer periods of time. This makes purple barley flakes an ideal tool for helping you achieve your sensible weight management goals, especially when accompanied by a well-balanced diet and regular exercise routine.
Help maintain healthy cholesterol levels – Because purple barley flakes contain high levels of beta-glucans and soluble dietary fiber, they can help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. As the fiber in the purple barley flakes passes through your digestive system, it naturally captures cholesterol particles, naturally flushing them out of your body.
