There are countless books written on nutrition offering varying levels of benefit. There is no one size fits all approach, no one supplement to address all ailments. Along with good water the one thing that can probably make the biggest difference to our wellbeing is sunshine. When we think of sunshine we immediately think of vitamin D levels, and of course these are very important for many aspects of our health. However sunshine has more far reaching benefits than purely enhancing our vitamin D levels.

Chlorophyll background

Chlorophyll is sunlight in liquefied form. Researcher and author Victoria Boutenko says in her excellent book Green for Life:

“No life is possible without sunshine and no life is possible without chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is liquefied sun energy. Consuming as much chlorophyll as possible is like bathing our inner organs in sunshine.  The molecule of chlorophyll is remarkably similar to the heme molecule in human blood. Chlorophyll takes care of our body like a caring and loving mother. It heals and cleanses all our organs and even destroys many of our internal enemies, like pathogenic bacteria, fungi, cancer cells and many others.”

Chlorophyll is the most important constituent of plants. It allows plants to absorb light from the sun and convert it into energy. Over the years it has been greatly appreciated as an enhancer of health.  Since the chemical structure of chlorophyll is very similar to human blood it is regarded as a blood builder and cleanser.

Slow Down the Ageing Process Through a Better, Cleaner Internal Environment

Human body cells age faster and are more vulnerable to diseases when the body accumulates toxins. It is vital to consistently detoxify the body and inhibit toxin build up. Chlorophyll helps to cleanse, detoxify and eliminate toxins and body wastes from our internal organs while purifying the blood to restore improved oxygenation of the blood. This in turn improves organ function.

Hectic life-styles and unhealthy eating habits increase body acidity which weakens major body systems leading to numerous health issues. Since chlorophyll  provides the body highly alkaline nutrition it helps to support a better pH regulated environment in the body. This in turn improves metabolic function, improves blood circulation and strengthens the immune system.

Chlorophyll is inherently rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and other plant nutrients. It helps to increase the quality and quantity of red blood cells. Increasing the ability of red blood cells  helps carry higher oxygen levels throughout the body. It is its ability to improve body oxygenation and body pH balance that gives chlorophyll its reputation as an aid in cancer prevention.

Improved Intestinal Function Through Better Detoxification and Internal Cleansing

Chlorophyll is a good detoxifier of the intestines. It acts as an internal deodorant helping to improve body odour, bad breath and odours from stools and urine.  It is not a laxative but has a normalizing effect on the digestive tract. Stools can often take on a green colour.   It is a regulator of intestinal fermentation. Candida albicans is caused by antibiotics, hormones, corticosteroids, immunosuppressants and a high sugar diet. These infections are very resistant and difficult to treat. However chlorophyll changes the environment making it less attractive for these pathogenic organisms to proliferate. Chlorophyll reduces the production of gas and toxins that occur during digestion and contributes to protecting the liver.  Adding chlorophyll to your daily regime is one of the best ways to continually and gently detox the body.

Good health does begin in the gut. It is important to ensure that the gut environment is ideal to allow beneficial microorganisms to proliferate and colonize. One of the most important aspects that impacts the gut environment is pH balance and chlorophyll helps greatly for this. More and more it is understood that what goes on in our gut affects all our body systems including our mental health. Chlorophyll has an important role to play in intestinal health to help to clean and help balance the gut environment. Chlorophyll is both an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. It has significantly greater anti-oxidant power than most of your common antioxidant fruits. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties it is a great aid for wound healing.  “Chlorophyll is one of the few substances that brings more oxygen into the cells, while at the same time strengthening cell walls from oxidative (free radical) damage. In the 1940s and 1950s (before antibiotics and medications became standard protocol), chlorophyll was used in thousands of surgeries to help heal tissues and to stop bacterial infections.

Chlorophyll for Healthier Skin

Recently there has been considerable discussion on social media platforms on the benefits of consuming chlorophyll for improved skin and for weight loss. Chlorophyll’s blood cleansing and liver supporting properties will indirectly help skin health. It is a true statement that when we are healthy on the inside we are beautiful on the outside. It can be of particular help with problems such as acne. It is not surprising that regular ingestion of chlorophyll will help get rid of unwanted excess weight. Excess weight is frequently a sign of excess body acidity. Chlorophyll’s ability to improver body pH balance and improve metabolism is helpful as part of an overall approach to weight loss. Not only will it help the body shed extra pounds it will also increase energy levels and help to improve immune response.

Now there are many reasons why we are told to eat our greens. As a general rule the greener the plant the richer it is in oxygen carrying chlorophyll.  That is one reason why plants such as spinach and kale have become very popular.  You also get algae such as chlorella and spirulina that are other great sources of chlorophyll. Taking a daily green juice, smoothie or shot of wheat grass are good ways to get more of this valuable nutrient into your body. In effect you are getting an infusion of light energy.


Liquid Chlorophyll - A Convenient Addition to Our Daily Diet for Internal Cleansing, Better Body pH Balance and Improved Oxygenation

Liquid chlorophyll is understood to be an even better way to get high levels of the nutrient absorbed into the body. Liquid chlorophyll is generally a copper extraction of chlorophyll from alfalfa grass called chlorophyllin.  Chlorophyllin is a semi-synthetic mixture of water-soluble sodium copper salts derived from chlorophyll. Chlorophyllin is water soluble as distinct from chlorophyll which makes it much better utilized by the body. It has been used for over 50 years and has an excellent safety record. Taking liquid chlorophyll in a glass of water is a great way for most people to support their wellbeing, reduce their chances of succumbing to certain cancers, such as liver cancer, and generally improve their energy levels giving the body that feeling of cleanliness.

Without sufficient oxygen our metabolism becomes sluggish and our energy levels drop. In the 1930s Nobel Prize winner Dr Otto Warburg established that lack of oxygen to the cells contributed to cell mutation. It is essential to protect our wellbeing that we maintain high levels of blood oxygenation to be able to supply the cells with the oxygen that is vital to it. Supplementing with liquid chlorophyll is one of the most effective and safest ways to achieve that, irrespective of our age.  A daily serving will help to bring a little more sunshine into your life.
