Muhammad prescribing barley

Today, there is a great deal of research demonstrates amazing health benefits of barley. Barley grass is a whole food supplement. It contains a wide spectrum of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and all eight essential amino acids including tryptophan, which helps prevent depression.

Muhammad recommended barley soup (talbinah) for stomach disorders and indicated in his undisputable sayings that it helps relieve sorrow and depression. His wife Aisha used to recommend the close relatives of a deceased person to have talbinah soup in order to elieve sorrow.

(Narrated in Sahih Bukhari)

ccording to medical research, depressive illness is found to be caused by a decrease of certain chemicals or neurotransmitters in the brain that are responsible for mood. Antidepressants stimulate chemical changes that increase the levels of these neuro-transmitters.

main neuro-transmitters associated with mood are serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. Barley was found to influence serotonin in a positive way that relieves depression. The prescription of barley by Muhammad 1400 years ago was definitely incredible.

It is revealing that Muhammad did not indulge in regular wheat consumption, but ate instead mostly barley and bread made from barley flour.

It has been discovered that whole grain barley has many health benefits. It can regulate blood sugar, prevent tiny blood clots, and reduce the body’s production of cholesterol.

it is part of Muhammad’s teachings to have small meals during the day. Should someone like to eat more, the belly must not be more than two thirds full. He told his companions to keep one third of their stomach’s space for food and one third for drink and the last for breath.
