Chlorophyll has many amazing health benefits. I like to think of chlorophyll as an internal cleaner, detoxifier, and restorer. The phytochemicals and phytonutrients are helpful to get rid of toxins in blood stream as well as provide the contents to repair damaged tissue. This is done through the vitamins and minerals that oxygenate and increase blood production, which increases cell function within the body to promote well-being and the immune system. It may be helpful at this time to take chlorophyll as immune system support as well as help get rid of oxidative stress from the anxiety and emotional stress that we feel at this time.

One tip to ensure you are consuming adequate water is to keep a water bottle in-front of you and track how much you are consuming. For example, if you keep a 20oz water with you, aim to have at least 3 full bottlesper day!

These times are certainly a huge upheaval to our normal routines, which, for many of us, means an interference with our typical eating patterns. Over the past few weeks I've spoken to people on both ends of the spectrum - for example, some feel like they're snacking constantly, while others feel they're hardly eating. Here are three quick pieces of advice I have during social distancing:
Purified water refers to any water that goes through a filtration process in order to get rid of any naturally occurring pollutants, contaminants, algaes, or harmful bacterias that may be present.
