Chlorophyll is a highly underutilized supplement. Most of us, if asked, have no idea what it is even for. Chlorophyll is a natural component found in green plants. Most of us, in this day and age, do not eat enough green vegetables.
Chlorophyll is a powerful antioxidant and is found in high concentrations in chlorella and in wheat grass. Animals gravitate towards it out of instinct. You may notice if your dog doesn’t feel well you may see him or her eating grass. Chlorophyll is the reason, though of course, they don’t know that. They just know that it makes them feel better.
It increases circulation to your organs and supports an overall healthy circulatory system. It also promotes cellular health and healthy digestive system and even acts as an internal deodorizer. I can remember my mom giving me liquid chlorophyll as a kid (lucky for you we sell it now in softgels! Please see the link at the bottom of the article) and telling me “Green inside is clean inside!” It tasted awful, the softgels are by far preferable, but I was one healthy kid!
Chlorophyll provides many health benefits to those who take it. Chlorophyll helps in neutralizing the pollution that we breathe in every day, which makes it an unbeatable supplement for smokers! Besides just cigarette smoke, chlorophyll protects against an array of carcinogens found in fungus-laden foods from nuts and grains and even overcooked meats.
It efficiently delivers magnesium and helps the blood carry the much-needed oxygen to all cells and tissue. It is also found to be useful in assimilating and chelating calcium and other heavy metals. We have also added copper to our formula, which supports red blood cell formation and hemoglobin. This is helpful for energy and whole system healing as it promotes healthy skin and bones. Copper deficiency can result in poor thyroid function. This combination has a highly alkalizing effect n the body and helps to deliver essential oxygen to the cells and tissues.
A great way to get more chlorophyll in your diet besides supplementation is sprouts. They are packed with chlorophyll and other nutrients and enhance salads, wraps, and sandwiches.
Other ailments that are helped by increasing your chlorophyll and greens intake include bad breath, emphysema, diverticulitis, body odor, boils, carbuncles, inflammation, kidney stones, mononucleosis, cramps, pancreatitis, and even helps with acne.
Research on the health benefits of chlorophyll has primarily focused on the area of cancer.
In humans, it has been found that damage to DNA carcinogens can be decreased as much as 55% through supplementation with chlorophyllin at 100 milligrams, three times a day, for four months.
And just a fair warning so you aren’t taken off guard. What goes in green, also comes out green!
