Is barely green a vitamin supplement. It sounds like some type of blue green algae. Find out if it is like chondrotin and glucosamine.

I think Barley Green is a dried seaweed product, if I remember correctly. A few years ago, my wife and I used to drink the stuff. It tasted like seaweed. It did give us energy, but I do not know about it's medicinal uses. I had to quit drinking it though...I could not get used to the taste.

I don't think this will help heel spur syndrome
