The Little Pharma supply the freshest, hydroponically produced barley and wheat grasses, all grown, adored and cared for in their purpose built unit, right here in Dublin. Hydroponic growing is actually a centuries old technique that brings out the very best in grasses like barley and wheat.
In March of 2014 Darren and Amanda opened The Hydro Club and initially their plan was to be a hydroponic and horticultural supply store, but having experienced difficulties finding a consistent supply of fresh produce to fit their needs, they decided to start growing their own and this sparked the idea to create The Little Pharma product range.
Why would you want to get these grasses into you in the form of their little super shots?
Barley grass is simply the leaves of the Barley plant and has many health benefits, especially if the grass is harvested when it is younger. In the early years of civilisation, Barley was one of the first cereal grains to be cultivated, and it’s been keeping us healthy ever since. It contains antioxidants and may help to lower cholesterol levels. According the The Little Pharma, wheat grass is nature’s finest medicine! Its juice makes for a powerful concentrated liquid nutrient and for best results the juice should be taken undiluted and on an empty stomach, this helps it become absorbed more efficiently. Roughly 60 grams of Wheat grass juice has the nutritional equivalent of more than 2,000 grams of the best raw organic vegetables, has twice the amount of Vitamin A as carrots and is higher in Vitamin C than oranges. It also contains the full spectrum of B vitamins, along with calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium. Lastly, it’s a veggie friendly source of protein.
