Chlorophyll is the green pigment which is known for giving plants their particular hue. In addition, chlorophyll also helps to capture sunlight and promote the process of photosynthesis, making it essential to the environment. But does that mean it’s also good for your skin? Robinson certainly thinks so. “Chlorophyll is loaded with potent skin-friendly antioxidants, namely C, A, E and K. These antioxidants are proven to help fight and reverse cellular damage caused by our encounters with toxins in our everyday life,” she notes, explaining that not only this, but drinking liquid chlorophyll can also help to improve your immune system, and support a healthy gut. This will consequently impact your body as a whole and brighten your complexion when consumed regularly.
Chlorophyll is a collection of green pigments found in the cells of plants and algae. It contains antioxidants as well as some vitamins and beneficial properties. When chlorophyll is removed from plants or is heated, it breaks down quickly because of the magnesium it contains. Scientists discovered that by replacing the magnesium with copper they could create a more stable, semisynthetic chlorophyll-like compound called chlorophyllin.
If detox is what you’re interested in, there’s some interesting research on purified chlorophyll supplements. (Actually, most supplements aren’t exactly chlorophyll. The ingredient on the label will be chlorophyllin, which is a more stable form.) We don’t absorb much chlorophyll, and that’s key to its benefits: Chlorophyll binds toxic compounds and keeps them from being absorbed so that they’re excreted in your stool. For example, chlorophyll and chlorophyllin reduce the absorption of aflatoxin, which is a common liver carcinogen produced by a mold that can grow on peanuts and corn. Chlorophyll supplements appear to do the same sequestering trick for two unhealthy kinds of chemicals found in meats.
Chlorophyll supplements are chlorophyllin, a copper-based alternative to magnesium-based chlorophyll. Copper may be found in plasma after taking chlorophyllin dosages, indicating that absorption has occurred.Fortunately, chlorophyllin has many of the same characteristics as chlorophyll.
One of the most sought after benefits of drinking chlorophyll wateris weight-loss, but aside from that, drinking this water consistently can also help in hormonal imbalance, cholesterol levels, and then some.
Chlorophyll water—and chlorophyll drops or powders you can add to your water—are now being sold by health and wellness brands. In recent months, largely due to their presence on social media—these products are gaining some serious momentum.
“Some of the supposed benefits of drinking chlorophyll water are treating skin care concerns and debloating or aiding in weight loss,” says Dr. Jeannette Graf, a board-certified dermatologist and Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology.
Social media has found a new fad to go gaga over—Liquid Chlorophyll. Chances are that you might have come across fitness enthusiasts holding a glass of a dark green-coloured juice. To our surprise, it’s the green pigment found in plants that gives them their vibrant colour and essential nutrients for survival. Not just influencers on Instagram and TikTok, but celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian, Mandy Moore and Kylie Jenner too swear by a few drops of liquid chlorophyll added to their daily dose of lemon-infused water.
