Health Benefits of Chlorophyll

Let’s just start with explaining what exactly Chlorophyll is (because I to confused it with chloroform at one stage!).

Health Benefits of Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green colour. It is the molecule in plants that allows photosynthesis (the conversion of sunlight, water and carbon (from Carbon Dioxide) into energy) to occur. With this energy (in the form of glucose) the rest of life is able to survive and grow.

Chlorophyll is a blood cleanser and oxygen booster. It helps to replenish and increase the amount of oxygen our red blood cells can carry throughout our body. This increase in oxygen aids in fighting off disease and boosting energy.

It also binds to heavy metals found throughout the body and carries them out, it’s therefore a great detoxifyer.

Chlorophyll is basically the best removalist team you’ve ever hired.

You can up your chlorophyll intake by eating dark green, leafy vegetables. Wheatgrass is one of the highest sources of chlorophyll out there (hence why juice bars surround themselves in it).

If you’re conscious of not meeting your intake there are also liquid chlorophyll supplements that you can add to your juices or drink straight or with water each morning to give you a boost! I personally love the Swisse Liquid Chlorophyll. Tastes like 42 peppermints at once but its quick and easy!
