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 within the plant converting it into energy that is used by that living organism.
The oxygen we all breath comes from this process that takes place within plants with chlorophyll being the key element.
Chlorophyll provides a robust amount of minerals such magnesium, potassium, iron and calcium. High in antioxidants, chlorophyll also contains vitamins A, C, E, K and beta carotene.
7 Outstanding Health Benefits of Chlorophyll
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 my candida overgrowth issue.
How to Get More Chlorophyll
In my opinion, the best way to get Chlorophyll is by eating more leafy green vegetables like:
- Collard Greens
- Swiss Chard
- Romaine Lettuce
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 years with no reports of toxicity or alarming side effects.
Besides, I ‘ve been using it for years with no ill effects.
My last blood tests were excellent. So impressed by my outstanding blood results for my age, My Doc asked, “So what are you doing?” I smiled and gave a brief history of my current healthy habits.
GET SOME CONVENIENT GREENS!
Don’t have time to prepare fresh green vegetables?
Green powders are also an easy way to get your fill of chlorophyll (yes, pun intended…lol).
The one below, Garden of Life Perfect Food Super Green Formula is a great one I’ve consumed.
Be forewarned, it has a very strong earthy taste which I happen to love that my wife thinks is disgusting…LOL!
So if the strong taste is not your thing, you may want mix it in a smoothie or juice of your choice.
To me, the best tasting chorella I’ve ever had.
Mixes well in smoothies.
Packed with an abundance of nutrients providing super health benefits and the catalyst for photosynthesis,
Chlorophyll is not only nutritionally important but also vital to the existence of life here on earth.
What do you think?
Should you be eating more green?
If you are already are doing so, CONGRATULATIONS!
In my opinion you should…
Thanks for stopping by.
Be Your Best and Be Blessed,
