I Started Drinking Liquid Chlorophyll, Why You Should Too!

You probably remember learning about Chlorophyll in the third grade, but just in case you need a quick refresher about this important molecule, this one is for you :)

Chlorophyll is basically a green pigment found in almost all types of plants, algae and cyanobacteria. It also plays an integral role in photosynthesis, the process in which plants harness energy from sunlight to synthesize (make) their own food:

1. Plants extract water (H2O) and minerals from the ground through their roots
2. Next, leaves take carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and releases oxygen (O2)
3. Then, sunlight gives chloroplasts energy to make sugar (food)

Now, back to our regular programming...

Over the years, numerous medical studies have touted chlorophyll's potential health benefits, citing its wound-healing, body deodorizing, anti-aging, weight control and cancer prevention properties,  but I mostly use it for its detoxifying effects.

A few ago, I was diagnosed with Diverticulosis, an inflammatory bowel disease which causes tiny bulging sacs to develop in the digestive tract. After my diagnosis, I decided to use natural remedies to combat flare ups. One of the things that has worked for my condition is to eliminate toxins by keeping my body in a constant state of detox. Although the body naturally detoxifies itself, I feel like adding liquid chlorophyll to my regimen enhances the process. I've been using the NOW brand from Amazon and I find it incredibly effective. Each morning, I add one teaspoon of chlorophyll to a glass of water. That's it. It doesn't taste amazing but I wouldn't say the taste is unpleasant.

Chlorophyll supplements are generally considered safe to use and do not appear to cause any serious side effects. However, if you are taking chlorophyll and experience side effects such as stomach issues or skin irritation, please stop taking it immediately and consult a doctor. Also, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, speak to your doctor before taking a chlorophyll supplement or any other types of supplements.

Lastly, if you prefer to get your dose of chlorophyll through food, consider the following green vegetables: spinach, asparagus, collard green, mustard green, broccoli, green beans and peas.

As always, thanks for reading!
