Ultra Shakes use Barley Grass as one of the PH balancing ingredients. This is because Barley grass is saturated with elements which regulate and balance the PH levels. This balance is a key to good health and is a main reason why bottled water companies focuses on PH levels so much. If the body is too acidic from other foods you cannot function properly.
Barley Grass also offers an array of vitamins and minerals needed in the body. In one serving of an Ultra Shake you will find that the barley grass provides Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, and vitamin K. These are vitamins which are typically low in most diets. The minerals included in barley grass include calcium, potassium, magnesium and Iron.

By having a perfect balance if Iron in your diet, as is the case with the ultra shake, your circulation and blood pressure are more apt to be in proper alignment.
