XOXO, Chlorophyll Water
Chlorophyll is an immunity booster and aids in detox. That is one of the reasons why a green smoothie is such a great idea. But if making a green smoothie is challenging, liquid chlorophyll is a simple short cut to obtain the benefits.
My top recommendation is an organically sourced Omega 3 supplement. Other supplements I recommend are Vitamin D, protein ( in India most of us are protein deficient) and an organic multivitamin.
I only recommend organic supplements, and I love Garden of Life products. I always suggest that my clients take their first step toward a healthy life by taking the appropriate Garden of Life multi-vitamin with a full glass water every day. Often it’s the simple, easy steps – like that, that will keep people on track.
I can recall my dad putting liquid chlorophyll / chlorophyll water into our foods when we were younger and being completely put off by the color-until I did my research. It's been said to help with blood detoxification, odor control, wound healing, gut health, energy, immune system support and cancer prevention. I have often heard it referred to as “plant blood”! I can always justify the price of a wheatgrass shot after knowing the benefits this food has been known for and do not hesitate to grab one at every opportunity that I can. In fact, I have opted to even purchase the frozen cubes to throw into my smoothies as well to get the added benefit.
Micronutrient deficiency is a common health issue and can impact a wide range of body systems. When looking to modify the diet to help improve micronutrient status it is important to remember that you don’t want to rely on just one food for nutrient repletion. For example, don’t only eat sweet potatoes to replenish Vitamin A. The reason for eating a broad variety of foods to replenish nutritional status is two fold. One, eating the same foods over and over can create a hypersensitivity to those foods, causing inflammation and gut health disruption. The other is that foods have a synergistic balance of nutrients and by eating lots of different foods you get the benefit of the other phyto and micronutrients in the variety of foods.
