Did you know that Chlorophyll, the green pigment in plants, can help the body speed up healing by eliminating toxins and nourishes the whole body. It protects the intestinal lining in your digestion from bacteria, reduces bloating sensation after eating, reduces or eliminate inflammation in the body and therefore helps you get out of pain, detoxifies the liver, acts as a deodorant, by controlling bacteria that causes oder, both in the body and in your mouth, helps you get rid of parasites and overgrowth of candida and so much more.
Chlorophyll is the substance in plants that absorbs the sun’s energy and turns it into chemical energy that our bodies can use.
Maybe the most important benefit our bodies get from chlorophyll is it´s molecular structure. It has almost the same structure as hemoglobin – an essential substance that our body uses to build and transport red blood cells and boost energy. Our blood is, in fact, almost 75% hemoglobin.
The only difference between hemoglobin and chlorophyll, is that the central atom of hemoglobin’s molecule is iron, whereas the central atom in chlorophyll’s molecule is magnesium. Because the molecular structure is almost identical, the body can use chlorophyll to regenerate our body at the cellular level and purify the blood.
Are you having hard time absorbing calcium, magnesium and other important minerals? Try adding the green drink to your daily diet. Chlorophyll, in a juice form, absorbs very easily to your bloodstream and can assimilate calcium and balance other trace minerals.
Does your body hold on to unwanted heavy metals? Chlorophyll’s ability to bind to and remove toxic heavy metals, such as mercury, makes it an extremely powerful detoxer for the body. The herb Coriander/Cilantro is a great heavy metal detoxifier.
Do you have infection in the body? The powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in chlorophyll fights bacteria and reduces inflammation in the body. Chlorophyll is also a perfect companion in fight against Candida.
What greens should you juice? Do you have some in your garden? Dandelion, nettle, kale, alfalfa, wheat grass or any other deep green plant. All are filled with chlorophyll.
You can also use the greens in your smoothie or eat it in a salad. The only thing juice has over smoothie and eating greens, is that it absorbs more easily. If you have some digesting problems, start by juicing your greens. I juice mine with a couple of apples, just to cover a bit of the grassy taste.
