Today, we’re going to head back to school for a science lesson that can lead to easier weight loss, more powerful detoxification, preventing cancer, and much more.
What are we going to study? Chlorophyll.
You might remember chlorophyll as a plant pigment that’s responsible for photosynthesis, when the plant absorbs light and turns it into energy.
Chlorophyll is also an incredibly important superfood for humans. Its many benefits include:
- It prevents cancer.
Chlorophyll, when consumed sufficiently, can actually bind itself to carcinogens including tobacco, UV light that can damage skin in excess, and food borne toxins, preventing them from being absorbed.
That makes it one of the most powerful antioxidants there is!
- It promotes liver health and detoxification.
It can even reduce the risk for liver damage and liver cancer by increasing production of the enzymes that remove toxins from the body.
- It’s similar to your blood.
It has the same molecular structure as your blood, except the center atom is magnesium, whereas in blood it’s iron, so if you have anemia, you need to consume even more chlorophyll.
- It prevents infections.
Because chlorophyll slows the reproduction of harmful bacteria, it makes wounds heal faster, prevents infections from spreading or becoming worse, and helps heal ulcers.
- It improves digestion.
It speeds up the elimination process, preventing constipation and removing toxins from the body more quickly without allowing Leaky Gut Syndrome to take place. Its digestive effects are said to aid in chlorophyll’s role in weight loss as well.
- It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory.
It turns off pro-inflammatory chemicals in the body, allowing your body to heal from the devastating effects of chronic inflammation.
- It helps you lose weight.
Studies have shown that chlorophyll aids your body’s hormones that signal you when you’re full. Compound that with sweeping clean the digestive tract more efficiently and there’s reason to believe that increasing chlorophyll, either by diet or supplement, aids weight loss efforts.
- It protects the skin.
Research has linked chlorophyll to lowering the risk of skin cancer, preventing shingles, healing herpes outbreaks, and reducing sores on the skin.
So how do you get more chlorophyll?
As you can imagine, green vegetables are a top source of chlorophyll, but not the only source. Eat more of these chlorophyll-rich foods:
- Swiss chard
- Snap peas
- Green beans
- Chinese Cabbage
- Seaweed like kelp and red algae
- Mung bean and alfalfa sprouts
Raw is best.
Chlorophyll levels in food are greatly reduced when you cook them, so the more raw, green veggies you can consume, the better.
Add greens to your smoothies and fresh juices, or use them in salads and chilled soups to get more raw chlorophyll.
Supplement with Chlorophyll
It takes 60 servings of spinach today to equal the mineral content in 1 serving of spinach in 1948 because of soil depletion and pesticide use.
So even if you eat chlorophyll-rich foods, you aren’t going to get enough from your diet alone.
What is the best way for you to get your daily dose of chlorophyll? DRINK IT!
Alkamind Daily Greens delivers 5 servings of chlorophyll in just 1 scoop! It’s a mega-dose of the powerful greens your body wants. What is best about this superfood supplement is that its #1 ingredient is what I consider he Holy Grail of chlorophyll, what I call the most powerful food on the planet, Wheatgrass.
