The green pigments you see in plants and algae are actually chlorophyll. It helps plants convert energy from the sun and soil, to grow. Chlorophyll works by absorbing the sun's rays as the plant goes through photosynthesis. It contains vitamins, antioxidants, and other therapeutic properties that may be beneficial to our health.
There’s a surprising amount of research that showcases the potential benefits chlorophyll (and chlorophyllin) can bring to our body, but not all have been done on humans or consist of using liquid chlorophyll.
Proclaimed the “Fittest Hotel on Earth” by the Wall Street Journal and decorated as “Best Spa and Wellness Award” by AHEAD Design Awards, Equinox Hotel is an urban oasis that creates the perfect retreat to restore and recharge and now stocked with Chlorophyll Water.
The 61-year-old actress was once told that the plant-based pigment was "really good" for skincare and has started each day with two large glasses of water first thing every morning for several years.
She said: "I’m not a morning person. I’m a middle person. I realized recently that my ideal sleep cycle is from midnight to 8. When I can do that, I feel fantastic. The first thing I do is drink two big glasses of water with chlorophyll in it. Someone told me a long time ago that it was really good for your skin, so I’ve always done it.I also like to take a bath in the morning and at night, with two whole cups of Epsom salts. In the morning it’s a really, really short one, but it helps wake me up, believe it or not."

On how she wakes up in the morning
The first thing I do is drink water with chlorophyll in it. Somebody a long time ago told me that it’s really good for your skin, so I drink two huge glasses of water with a few drops of it inside. Then I drink tea and look over my iPad at the news. Also, there’s a New York Times game called Spelling Bee that I find very soothing – I do that for a while too. I like to have some time in the morning. I wish I could jump out of bed, but I can’t.
