London Finest Supplements has sold more Liquid Chlorophyll than anything else in 2011, and it looks the same for 2012. But what actually is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is also considered the “blood” of the plants. Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in plants, algae and cyanobacteria. It is a very important molecule that is used in the process of photosynthesis (a chemical process that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds). One of the main compounds is sugar, which the plant give to the fungi and microorganisms to the humus in the soil in exchange for nutrients out from soil. This is also know as the “love principle.”
Chlorophyll molecules are found in organelles called chloroplast. So what are chloroplast?
“Chloroplasts are organelles found in plant cells and other eukaryotic organisms that conduct photosynthesis. Chloroplasts capture light energy to conserve free energy in the form of ATP and reduce NADP to NADPH through a complex set of processes called photosynthesis.” Wikipedia
Chlorophyll is also a protein bonded to magnesium and resembles hemoglobin structurally. Chlorophyll looks green because it doesn’t absorb light energy in the green portion of the spectrum very well, and that energy is then reflected from the surface of chlorophyll-bearing structures, making them appear green.
Below is a basic picture (taken from Wikipedia) showing how sunlight is taken in by the plant. It then uses this “solar” energy to convert water and carbon dioxide, again, taken in by the plant, turning it into oxygen (for life on the planet).
Here are the top 10 benefits from using Chlorophyll
(Most of the benefits were borrowed from this great blog / website http://www.energiseforlife.com/wordpress/2009/02/11/health-benefits-of-l...)
1: Chlorophyll has the power to regenerate our bodies at the molecular and cellular level.
2: It is known to help cleanse the body, fight infection, help heal wounds, and promote the health of the circulatory, digestive, immune, and detoxification systems.
3: Chlorophyll consumption increases the number of red blood cells and, therefore, increase oxygen utilization by the body.
4: Chlorophyll also reduces the binding of carcinogens to DNA in the liver and other organs. Chlorophyll also protects against a whole host of carcinogens found in fungus-laden foods such as nuts and grains, the toxins from cooked meats, and air-borne carcinogens (from pollution). It blocks the metabolism in the body of harmful chemicals known as procarcinogens that damage DNA.
5: Chlorophyll breaks down calcium oxalate stones for elimination, which are created by the body for the purpose of neutralizing
and disposing of excess acid.
6: Chlorophyll contains high levels of the vitamins A, C and E, chlorophyll has strong antioxidant capacity and has also been found to help reduce inflammation.
7: Chlorophyll is one of the most important chelates in nature. It’s ability to bind to and remove toxic heavy metals such as mercury.
8: Chlorophyll acts as a great antiseptic. Although chlorophyll doesn’t actually have antiseptic properties of its own, it, quite remarkably, does have the ability to aid our body’s tissue in destroying germs. By strengthening tissue, it increases the disease resistance of cells and, at the same time, prevents the growth of bacteria!
9: Chlorophyll has a double-action remedy for bad breath. Firstly, as a deodoriser, it will eliminate odours in the mouth and throat, but secondly (and more importantly) it promotes a healthy digestive tract – which is the primary reason for bad breath.
10: Chlorophyll has a highly alkalising effect on the body and helps to deliver much needed oxygen to cells and tissues and rapid delivery of magnesium.
Extra benefit: Chlorophyll contains vitamin K, C, folic acid, iron, calcium, protein: which are all also essential in building and repairing red blood cells and boosting our immune system.
Its no wonder that some of the strongest animals in the world such as gorillas and elephants eat grass and leaves as the main staple of their diets. It must be all that Chlorophyll!
