Healthy Habits: Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green color, but it does so much more than that! Chlorophyll actually resembles our red blood cells (hemoglobin), the pigment that gives our blood its color, and it cleanses the blood and helps us detox from all of the heavy metals and other toxins in our daily environments.

Here are some of the many possible health benefits of taking chlorophyll:

  • antioxidant
  • improves digestion
  • relieves respiratory challenges
  • improves skin conditions
  • improves blood circulation
  • detoxes the body
  • cleanses & builds the blood
  • antibacterial
  • speeds up healing
  • can relieve gastric ulcers
  • helps regulate blood sugar levels
  • alkalizing/balances pH/reduces acidity
  • anti-inflammatory
  • can help cure yeast infections/antimicrobial
  • can increase milk production in lactating moms
  • improves liver function
  • boosts the immune system
  • improves gut health
  • helps fight infections
  • treats anemia
  • increases energy
  • cleanses the colon
  • boosts oxygen
  • can help prevent kidney stones

Whole food sources of chlorophyll are:

  • green leafy veggies
  • broccoli
  • spinach

Lightly steam your greens, eat them raw or juice them, in order to get the most chlorophyll and other nutrients.

Wheatgrass juice, spirulina (blue-green algae) and chlorella are excellent sources of chlorophyll as well. It is easy to add the freeze-dried, powdered whole foods to your daily smoothie or juice, especially if you are one who has a hard time eating your green vegetables. I recommend Wizelephant Brand 2 in 1 Chlorella Spirulina Powder.

Another option of getting these nutrient-dense “super greens” into your diet is by purchasing chlorophyll liquid drops, tablets or capsules. Choose a product that is non-gmo, organic and made with whole foods. Ask your local grocery or health food store to stock your favorite brand.

Keep in mind that when you begin to detox with supplements, that as your body is being assisted in flushing toxins out, you may feel worse for a time! Be patient with this process. Some additional ways to help your body flush out toxins are: salt/baking soda baths, detoxing essential oils, regular massages and drinking more filtered water. Adding fresh lemon juice to your water at least once a day can also be helpful.

Be well and God Bless You!
