I am seeing an increased interest in plant based diets which seems to have resulted in a lot of new pre-prepared snack items that are vegetable based. Hey, its Better than cupcakes! The other trend is the increased availability of sprouted grains. Most people don't stay gluten free so as long as they are going to eat bread, it may as well be sprouted. The antioxidant power of thisplant compound(chlorophyll) is amazing because it can prevent free radicals which is what is linked to DNA damage causing cancer and heart disease.
Chlorophyll has been called the "blood" of the plant world, and has the same structure as the heme of blood (except that where the heme carries an iron mineral in the center, the chlorophyll carries magnesium). Thus it may be beneficial in supporting blood quality, and it is a good source of magnesium.
I tell individuals who favor this lifestyle to focus on green, non-starchy vegetables like kale, bok choy, collard greens, and chard. Additionally, healthy fats like avocado, walnuts, and almonds are also key.
The benefits of liquid chlorophyllare endless. I’m really not a supplement junkie, but chlorophyll is the one I recommend the most. Liquid chlorophyll helps hydrate the gut in a way that water doesn’t. It acts like intestinal soap and literally scrubs away waste products. When I give people colonics who do not release waste I ask them to use liquid chlorophyll. They release up to five times the amount of waste. Not to mention they report having better bowel movements. Liquid chlorophyll is also a blood builder, helps make you stronger, and tones muscles. I recommend it to my clients to help them go to the bathroom instead of using stimulant laxatives. Liquid chlorophyll is honestly my favorite supplement.
Chlorophyllis 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 chlorophyllis 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.
Chlorophyll has been used as a health supplement for years, and a variety of studies suggest that it is helpful for skin conditions such as acne, body odors, and fighting cancer. Chlorophyll also has blood-building properties because it is similar to hemoglobin. So, it may be useful in treating hemoglobin deficiencies that are present in conditions such as anemia.
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.
