An over-worked liver that is not properly cleansed will begin to cause issues from lethargy, memory loss, breakouts/acne, headaches and anxiety are just a few. The chlorophyll and beta carotene content in Barley Grass Juice Powder stimulate the elimination of waste and detox the liver on a daily basis.
