What is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is the molecule that’s essential for photosynthesis to take place in plants.
Photosynthesis is the process whereby sunlight is captured by chlorophyll converting it into energy that is used by the living organism.
Also the oxygen we all breath comes from the chlorophyll working within the plants.
Without it, WE WOULD NOT LIVE.
7 Outstanding Health Benefits of Chlorophyll (Get Some!)
Chlorophyll has been shown to help in the growth and repair of tissue. It can be used to treat infected wounds naturally. Because chlorophyll releases carbon dioxide and delivers oxygen to the body, this process speeds the healing process for burns and wounds. Did you know that 100 years ago Chlorophyll was reported to speed the healing of wounds?
Can Be An Effective Deodorizer
Studies done have shown reductions in fecal matter, urine, bad breath, foul smelling wounds and body odor. In a study of nursing home patients, it was reported that body odors where significantly reduced with the 62 involved participants. Take care of the stinky 🙂
Hunger Craving Curbed
In 2013, a study of 20 moderately overweight women when given chlorophyll with meals, they showed a reduction in hunger and lower blood sugar levels.
Research has shown that Chlorophyll hinders absorption by binding to toxic metals. Removing heavy metals is important to taking the load off you organs allowing healing. I feel toxicity is one of the major causes of sickness.
Helps Your Blood
Chlorophyll is able to transport magnesium and aid the blood in delivering required oxygen to cells and tissues. Chlorophyll is very similar to blood with magnesium as the central atom whereas blood has iron at the center. Some researchers have concluded that chlorophyll actually releases magnesium from it’s core absorbs iron and essentially becomes blood…WOW!
Potential Anti-Cancer Fighter
One study has shown the actual reduction in Aflatoxin-B1 (AFB1) a liver carcinogen produced by certain species of fungus. Another study has shown a higher risk of colon cancer in men with low dietary intake of chlorophyll.
Fights Candida Albicans
I’ve had my battle with this nasty booger. This one can cause depression, fatigue, itchy skin and digestive problems ( I know from experience). Research has shown incidents of Candida growth being stopped. I can testify to this one! Eating a green diet has definitely halted by candida issue.
How to Get More Chlorophyll
For me, the easiest way to get more Chlorophyll is by eating more leafy green vegetables and certain blue-green algae like Chorella (I LOVE IT!)
You can also use a liquid chorophyll supplement.
Please be aware that liquid chlorophyll supplements are usually a chlorophyll derivative called chlorophyllin. Basically, chlorophyllin is chlorophyll without the central element magnesium. Chlorophyllin is more stable and easier to use as a supplement also being water soluble.
Although not pure Chlorophyll, Chlorophyllin has been used for at 4o years with no reports of toxicity or alarming side effects.
GET SOME GREEN!
I reiterate, the best way to get Chlorophyll is eating live green foods like kale, broccoli, spinach, collard greens and swiss chard.
I also often eat Clean Chorella….It’s My Favorite!
So, to quickly sum it up….EAT YOUR GREENS!
