If you want more energy and healthy nerves and muscles, supplement with chlorophyll !
Like I always say: what works in nature, surely works in man.
Chlorophyll is the molecule that absorbs sunlight and uses its energy to synthesize carbohydrates from CO2 and water. This process is known as photosynthesis, and is the basis for sustaining the life processes of all plants. Since animals and humans obtain their food supply by eating plants, photosynthesis is the source of our life.
Supplement with chlorophyll at least four days a week for these healthy benefits:
- Enhance energy
- Detoxify the liver
- Eliminate body odor and bad breath
- Clean the digestive tract
- Aide in the prevention of liver cancer
- Beneficial in all cancer therapy
- Help with anemia
- Aide in the elimination of mold from the body
Without chlorophyll, also known as the “green blood” of plants, life as we know it could not exist. Chlorophyll is the natural plant pigment that lends its color to grass, leaves, and many of the vegetables humans eat.
Chlorophyll may indeed play an important role in prevention of certain cancers. Researchers in the early 1980s discovered that chlorophylls and related chemicals could inhibit the ability of certain DNA-damaging chemicals to cause mutations in bacteria.
M.G. Ferruzzi, Ohio State University, was the first researcher to demonstrate the absorption of chlorophyll into the intestinal cells; henceforth, supporting the potential importance of chlorophyll as a health-promoting plant compound.
Improves Immune Function In Colitis and Fibromyalgia
In a study by Virginia Commonwealth University’s R.E. Merchant and C.A. Andre, supplementation with chlorophyll-rich chlorella was shown to reduce high blood pressure, lower LDL (“bad” cholesterol), accelerate wound healing, and improve immune function in colitis and fibromyalgia.
They gave supplemental chlorella to 55 fibromyalgia patients, 33 with hypertension, and nine with ulcerative colitis. The results from Marchant’s study showed a 22 percent decrease in pain intensity in patients with moderately severe fibromyalgia after two months of daily chlorella supplementation.
A study by Brazilian researcher, M.S. Miranda, showed that spirulina, rich in chlorophyll, phenolic acids, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, all demonstrated powerful free-radical antioxidant protection in test-tube and experimental models.
So, no more excuses for not getting your greens! Chlorophyll can be found in:
- blue-green algae
- green barley
- wheat grass
And here’s an interesting fact: as the chlorophyll in leaves decays in autumn, the green color fades and is replaced by the oranges and reds of carotenoids.
Where to find Chlorophyll Supplements
Go to the Hullistic Market for my chlorophyl recommendations.
I highly recommend Liquid Chlorophyll 100 mg Spearmint by World Organics. World Organic Chlorophyll spearmint flavor is derived exclusively from high quality alfalfa leaves. Many people are low in copper, and chlorophyll contains organic copper. I recommend liquid chlorophyll to help boost copper levels for blood and nerve health.
Plus, it leaves you with great breath!
