Chlorophyll Water has topical benefits and can act as a skin protector, especially in wounds. It helps to reduce bacteria and decrease inflammation on the skin.
Additionally, Chlorophyll Water may aid in weight loss, liver detoxification, and to improve the quality of the red blood cells in the blood. However, more research is needed for conclusive benefits.
Chlorophyll Water may stimulate enzymes in the body that fight off aging and may also might off free radicals, which are associated with accelerated aging
I originally started taking chlorophyll after reading The Healthy Skin Diet and found I could really see and feel a difference. I’ve written previously about supplements for acne and chlorophyll is excellent for both preventing breakouts and helping to clear them up.
Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in plants, and the result of photosynthesis (Jr Cert Science class anyone?). It is high in magnesium, which is something that many people may be deficient in, due to 1) reduced levels in our soil, and 2)the fact that it can be more difficult to absorb than other vitamins and minerals (caffeine is a big offender in this case).
Chlorophyll water is an impressive new way to take chlorophyll and it is effective in protecting against free radicals and simultaneously helping to reduce body weight, prevent cancer, and improve our red blood cells. All of this, and more, is a by-product of chlorophyll's antioxidant activity.
Because chlorophyll acts as an antioxidant in the body it works to fight and correct free radical damage. This damage typically attacks at the cellular level which has noticeable impacts internally and externally, including the skin. Chlorophyll can help correct and prevent wrinkles by improving collagen production in the body and ridding the body of toxins that cause skin damage.
Let’s take a look at the weight loss claim first. Swedish researchers performed a small study in 2014 where 38 women ate three meals daily and increased their physical activity. Half of the women consumed five grams of chlorophyll-filled green plant membranes before breakfast each day, while the others took a placebo. After 12 weeks, the supplement group had lost about three pounds more than the control group lost.
An earlier study by the same researchers found that consuming thylakoids (membranes in green leaves that contain chlorophyll) may suppress appetite. However, this was another small study with only 20 women.
