You probably haven’t heard the word “chlorophyll” since high school science class, but chlorophyll is the pigment that makes plants green and help them convert sunlight into energy through photosynthesis.
Since chlorophyll is similar to hemaglobin (the red blood cells that get oxygen to your blood) it can perform a lot of the same functions. This means that your body loves chlorophyll because it knows what to do with it.
Chlorophyll is a super food. It’s packed with magnesium, iron, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C, antioxidants, and beta carotene. It cleanses our blood, helps to carry oxygen, and fights anaemia.
Also great for digestion. Think of it as drinking a huge green, leafy salad.
Think of this water as a healthy detox. It helps your body flush out toxins and promotes healthy blood flow. It also helps to detoxify and revive the liver. It is also effective in reducing the harmful effects of radiations and helps eliminate pesticides and drug deposits from the body.
Pimples are little sacks of oil, dead skin, and bacteria. Chlorophyll can help stop breakouts or make them clear up faster because it functions as a wound healer and germ killer which means it can fight blemishes from the inside out.
Helps protect your skin from the sun by absorbing sunlight and protection from harmful UV rays. That doesn’t mean you can skip sunscreen, but it makes an amazing ingredient in moisturisers.
You can find chlorophyll drops at your local health store. They’re flavourless and the bottle will tell you how many drops to add to your water. If you’ve tried chlorophyll in beauty products of liquid form, leave me a comment!
