Chlorophyll is taken to support a healthy bowel environment, healthy liver detox, normal body alkalinity and healthy heavy metal elimination. It can also be taken in wholefood form and greens like Spirulina, Barley Grass, Wheat Grass and Chlorella are packed with high levels of chlorophyll – as you can tell by their vivid colour.
Chlorophyll is what gives plants their stunning green colour; they use it to convert sunlight into energy as part of photosynthesis.
Factors such as consuming processed food that has lost its nutritional value, being exposed to cigarette smoke, excessive alcohol use and prolonged stress can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb vital compounds from food, which may lead to nutritional deficiencies and less than optimal body function.
Chlorophyll is used as a natural detoxification support supplement as it helps maintain a healthy internal bowel environment for healthy toxin elimination. Anecdotally chlorophyll is said to help keep bowel odours at normal healthy levels, and the fact that chlorophyll supports a healthy bowel environment aligns with this theory. Chlorophyll also has a central magnesium atom in its structure, making it an excellent source of this essential mineral.
Available as chlorophyll liquid or in capsule form, chlorophyll supports the body's normal process of heavy metal detoxification. What’s more, liquid chlorophyll and capsules have been shown to support healthy immunity and white blood cells for rapid immune response. It also helps maintain a healthy pH in the body and supports alkalinity.
Greens such as Spirulina, Chlorella, Barley grass or Wheat grass are excellent wholefood sources of chlorophyll and another healthy way to take a chlorophyll supplement. They offer additional nutrients too, including fibre, which further supports healthy detoxification and elimination via the bowel.
