Chlorophyll is magic sunshine that heals our body from within. It’s a magic weight-loss pill, health-gain pill, energy pill, beautifying pill, and, simply put, the #1 body cleanser and strengthener in the world—with absolutely zero side effects!
What Is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is a molecule that gives plants their green color. Chlorophyll is responsible for facilitating one of the most incredible and miraculous processes on earth—the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process that converts sunlight, energy, water, and carbon dioxide into our primary source of fuel—glucose. All animals and humans obtain their life-sustaining energy-supply from plants, making photosynthesis one of the sources of all life. Without plants, there would be no life. One of the most amazing aspects of chlorophyll is how closely it resembles our red blood cells, known as hemoglobin, the pigment that gives our blood its red color as well as oxygen-carrying capacity. The hemoglobin of the red blood cell and the chlorophyll of the plant are virtually identical in molecular structure.
That means that chlorophyll has blood-building characteristics. That is simply unbelievable! Studies supporting this correlation date as far back as the 1920s.
So how does this apply to daily life? You should consume chlorophyll on a daily basis. Why? Because it’s going to help lower your cholesterol, heal many diseases, lose weight, and generally make you live longer and healthier. The range of health benefits to gain from chlorophyll is nothing short of miraculous. Chlorophyll improves the health of the circulatory, digestive, immune, metabolic, and detoxification systems of the body—leading to many different and overlapping health benefits. So, you see, that’s why I call it the magic pill. Take that magic pill on a daily basis and you’ll be on your way to a healthy body and a healthy life.
Where Do We Find Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is basically in all of the green leafy vegetables. Try any of the following: rocket, spinach, dandelion greens, kale, watercress, parsley, lettuce, endive, chicory, broccoli sprouts, and mustard sprouts. Use these greens as a base for your salad, and pour on some of my amazing tahini (you should be able to buy it in local supermarkets), add some fresh lemon and sea salt, and you’ve got yourself an amazingly healthy salad. Other great sources of chlorophyll are wheatgrass, barley grass, spirulina, and chlorella.
Even if you take in just a little bit, it’ll do your body good
