Liquid Chlorophyll: What to know before buying
"TikTokers are infatuated by chlorophyll. Here’s what the plant pigment can actually do for you and your health, and where to find it.
According to Trista Best, a registered dietitian and environmental health specialist, chlorophyll is “full of antioxidants,” which “act in therapeutic ways to benefit the body, especially the immune system.” Antioxidants work as anti-inflammatory agents inside the body, helping “improve the body's immune function and response,” she explained.
Because chlorophyll is a potent antioxidant, some researchers have found that consuming chlorophyll (or applying it topically) can help with acne, large pores and signs of aging. One small study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology tested the efficacy of a topical chlorophyllin on subjects with acne and deemed it effective as a treatment. Another study in the Korean Journal of Investigative Dermatology tested the effects of dietary chlorophyll on women over the age of 45 and found that it “significantly” improved wrinkles and skin elasticity.
“[Chlorophyll] is well known to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, so in that respect it likely does help to support the health of our cells, and thus tissue and organ function, but more research is needed to fully understand the entire scope of its health benefits,” Noelle Reid, MD, a board-certified LA-based family medicine physician.
For an on-the-go option, Kelly Bay, a functional medicine practitioner, clinical nutrition specialist and certified dietician nutritionist, said she’s a “big fan” of Chlorophyll Water. In addition to chlorophyll, the drink also contains vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin C and vitamin D. The antioxidant-rich water can be purchased either in a 12-pack or a 6-pack."

The One Thing Everyone's Adding To Their Water Right Now, Say Experts
There's a new health obsession taking over your Instagram and/or TikTok feed. It may look kind of gross, but people are buzzing about its body benefits…
Chorophyll Can Help Fight Disease
"Chlorophyll is best known for its ability to block carcinogens within the body by binding to them in the digestive tract," says Dr. Josh Axe, D.N.M., C.N.S, D.C., author of the new, best-selling book Ancient Remedies. "This stops a carcinogen from being circulated throughout the body and reaching susceptible tissues."
Chlorophyll Can Help Detox Your Liver
Another popular benefit, according to Axe: "It's known to boost liver detoxification and aid healthy metabolism." Research shows that it helps fight against liver damage by supporting the liver's natural detoxification process.
Chlorophyll Can Aid In Weight Loss
It may also improve gut health, which could have a positive effect on weight loss.
Chlorophyll Can Improve Your Red Blood Cells
Liquid chlorophyll may also improve the quality of your blood, increasing the count—and overall health—of red blood cells. Why? Chlorophyll and hemoglobin (a molecule in red blood cells) have similar molecular structures. For this reason, research suggests that chlorophyll may help improve anemia symptoms."
How To Add More Chlorophyll To Your Diet
You can also buy water with chlorophyll already infused in it, like this Chlorophyll Water."
TikTok Says Drinking Chlorophyll Will Clear My Acne - Should I Try It?
If you're on TikTok, you've probably seen some variation of the viral clip: an influencer promoting their "morning supplement routine," which involves a large glass of ice water, a medicinal-looking tincture of liquid chlorophyll, and a metal or glass straw (for aesthetic) to mix it all together.
"Dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, asserts that when taken in conjunction with a healthy diet, drinking liquid chlorophyll might be good for the overall health of your skin. "There's some data suggesting that oral chlorophyll may enhance production of red blood cells in the body," he explains. "This could mean better delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your organs, including your skin."
What is Chlorophyll? A Plant Pigment With Health Benefits.
Chlorophyll is high in antioxidants, just like your fruits and veggies.
“Chlorophyll has also been shown to have antioxidant properties,” says Ivanir, pointing to this study, as well as a second here. “This can help to reduce oxidative damage via free radicals that will look to bind to cells in our body. When they bind they cause damage to those cells that could eventually lead to cancer.”
Citing chlorophyll’s therapeutic value particularly to our immune system, Trista K. Best, MPH, RD, at Balance One Supplements elaborates that “antioxidants have an anti-inflammatory side effect which can improve the body's immune function and response.”
Chlorophyll may increase the number of red blood cells in the body.
Quick science refresher: red blood cells contain hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body and then returns carbon dioxide from your body back to the lungs, so you can exhale it.
Here’s how the science plays out in your bloodstream: “Chlorophyll has a very similar structure to hemoglobin molecules in our blood. Hemoglobin makes up a large portion of your red blood cells and is responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body,” says Ivanir, referencing this review and this pilot study. “Because chlorophyll and hemoglobin share a very similar structure, chlorophyll has the ability to help boost the supply of red blood cells and aid in the ability to carry more oxygen throughout the [body].”
Chlorophyll may aid in weight loss.
“You may wonder why celery juice and other green juices are always trending with the health and wellness crowd, and there’s a good reason for that. These drinks are packed with chlorophyll, which has the capacity to act on hunger hormones, suppressing hunger and boosting the feeling of satiety,” says Shaw, citing this study. “Therefore, leading one to consume fewer calories overall and lose weight. Of course, weight loss isn’t always the goal, but these drinks are also packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that improve overall health.”
Chlorophyll may help your complexion.
A quick Google search for “chlorophyll skincare products” elicits many, many results—and these beauty goodies could very well boost your skin’s appearance. “Many chlorophyll enthusiasts and researchers claim chlorophyll is beneficial for skin health because of the anti-aging properties of antioxidants, as well as red blood cell health, cellular health, and weight loss,” explains Best.

This Unlikely Ingredient May Be An Effective Remedy For Acne
You may remember chlorophyll from your high school biology class as an important part of a plant's reproductive cycle. But, later in life, you probably haven't had much use for it outside of a science lab. Recently, however, liquid chlorophyll is actually becoming a stand-out treatment for acne and a staple in the wellness world — gracing different tinctures and tonics while touting some serious skin-saving benefits. Since blemishes stem from inflammation of the pore, this ingredient helps soothe bumps and irritation with its high antioxidant count. Essentially, it helps fight off the irritants and bacteria that can lead to break outs.
"Based on several clinical trials, chlorophyll likely works through both decreasing inflammatory markers in the skin and decreasing P. acnes, a bacteria thought to contribute to acne formation," Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group explains to Byrdie.
Joshua Zeichner, M.D, tells InStyle, "Chlorophyll is a trendy ingredient right now and some data shows skin-renewing and antioxidant benefits, but the jury is out on whether it's any more effective than traditional antioxidant treatments, like vitamin C and retinol."
If you're looking to ingest the substance, there seems to be more correlation between the ingredient and skin-enhancing benefits this way. "Chlorophyll's natural antioxidants are thought to fight free radical damage, leading to improvement in signs of skin aging, such as decreased wrinkles and repairing DNA damage," Nazarian explains to Byrdie.
