There are many potential benefits of incorporating chlorophyll water into your diet. These perks include speeding up the healing process, detoxifying the liver, fighting cancer, and inducing weight loss. Since chlorophyll is naturally part of most veggies, as it is a molecule found in all green plants, you’re likely getting adequate amounts of this molecule from your diet. However, as drinking chlorophyll water will increase your fluid intake, and it has a plethora of potential benefits, it’s favorable to include it in your routine in moderation.
