We all know about healthiness of vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables with deep, rich color tones. In many ways, they’re perfect foods and part of the credit is owed to the chlorophyll they contain. Chlorophyll is a green pigment that’s instrumental in photosynthesis. Research also suggests it’s instrumental in promoting good health.

Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that collects energy from sunlight and uses that energy for the process of photosynthesis. It is the key molecule that sustains all plant life.

It is very similar to the hemoglobin of the blood. The only difference is, this green pigment centers around the magnesium molecule and the red blood cells center around the iron molecule.

Chlorophyll boosts the Immune System

Chlorophyll is naturally helping to flush out toxins and boosts immune system significantly. It has the ability to absorb toxins from the intestinal tract and alter the bacterial flora of the digestive system.

In addition to seaweeds and micro-algae, green leafy vegetables, super sprouts, sunflower greens, green smoothies and green juicing are great ways to get this green, celled sunlight food into your diet.

The juice from wheatgrass is known to be like drinking pure green-chlorophyll, naturally helping to flush out toxins and improve immune function. A shot of wheatgrass is a potent dose of this valuable nutrient, if you can stand the taste. Wild edible greens are one of the best wild sources of this pure sun energy, grown and nurtured by nature herself.

Promotes Cleansing – Removes Toxins from the Body

Environmental pollutants such as toxic metals can quickly destroy health. Chlorophyll binds with toxic metals to hamper absorption, and research has shown it can do the same with some carcinogens. The algaes are #1 for removing and neutralizing poisonous substances from the body, like heavy metals, toxins, radiation, pesticides and pollution in the air we breathe. There structure is unique in that they tend to bind with these contaminants and expel them from the body.

These green chlorophyll-rich micro algaes have the ability to detoxify the body, working with the liver to support optimal health.

The seaweeds are also up there, offering large amounts of green nutrients.  Sea vegetables also convert sunlight energy into an excellent food for removing environmental pollutants, radioactive elements and carcinogens.

Kelp is especially good for its ability to regulate thyroid hormones and protect against the damaging effect of radiation exposure.

Effective against Candida

Chlorophyll is also great for candida and colon health, helping to cleanse the body of unfriendly bacteria by creating an alkaline environment. It has the ability to absorb toxins from the intestinal tract and alter the bacterial flora of the digestive system. Candida infection is a big problem for many individuals and can lead to fatigue, depression, and digestive problems. Research has shown that isolated chlorophyll solutions stop Candida albicans growth.

Protects DNA against Fried Foods

Fried foods aren’t just bad for your waistline; they also contain chemicals known to damage colon tissue and the DNA of colon cells. In one study, participants who ate fried foods coupled with protective foods, including chlorophyll, were observed to have less DNA damage of colon cells. Don’t take that as just because to go crazy with the fried foods, the best idea is to avoid them altogether.

Blood Cleanser

Eating foods rich in these green pigments is like getting a blood transfusion of sunlight, which cleanses the blood, strengthens red blood cell production and cellular regeneration on every level. These green foods are packed with vitamins and minerals, in addition to high amounts of iron and high quality protein needed for super health.

Promising Potential for Cancer Therapy

Although the research doesn’t currently show that chlorophyll is an all out cancer cure, researchers are excited about its potential as a therapy.

Controls Body Odor

Chlorophyll is good for your body from the inside out, literally. This includes body and fecal odors. In addition to odor reduction, it also alleviated constipation and gas.

Super Potent Antioxidant Action

Chlorophyll’s status as a super food is due to its nutritional and potent antioxidant properties. It protects cells from oxidative damage by eliminating free radicals.

Relieves Systemic Redness and Swelling

Traditional medicine has long used green leaves for infections. With modern approaches that have limited effectiveness and a long list of side effects, natural remedies are getting another look. Animal studies have found that green leaves help to reduce swelling and redness.

Promotes Healthy Iron Levels

A modified form of chlorophyll known as chlorophyllin may be highly effective for anemia. By swapping iron for magnesium at the center of the molecule, it provides a bioavailable form of iron the body can use.

An Excellent Dietary Supplement

Chlorophyll rich foods are also healthy in their own right and contain essential vitamins and nutrients needed for cardiovascular, muscular, and neural health. Consume foods containing chlorophyll or take a dietary supplement for best effect.

Helps Control Hunger and Cravings

Chlorophyll should be considered as an effective way to manage hunger and promote weight loss.
