Chlorophyll is the green pigment in the leaves and stems of plants,
which enables them to use the sun's energy to turn carbon dioxide and
water into carbohydrates.
is extremely similar in chemical structure to the haemoglobin in our
blood, the only difference being that a haemoglobin molecule has iron in
the centre, while chlorophyll has magnesium.
The Health Benefits of Chlorophyll include:
- protects the body from radiation
- removes heavy metals and other toxins from the body
- heals and rejuvenates the liver
- heals wounds
- prevents premature aging, and prolongs youthfulness
- prevents bad body odour
How to eat more greens
All green plants contain chlorophyll, and for maximum health benefits
it may be best consumed raw. This may well be the reason why green salads
are so good for us. In addition to salads how about increasing your chlorophyll intake by drinking green smoothies and/or green juices.
Freshly juiced wheatgrass juice is an excellent source of chlorophyll.
Alternatively you can supplement your diet with a high quaility organic green superfood powder. I like to use one when I'm travelling, camping, or simple short on time.
