A supercharged antioxidant powerhouse, chlorophyll is the chemoprotein that gives plants their green colour. Regular consumption through a wide variety of vegetables means you’re getting a hit of nutrient-dense goodness for optimum health and wellbeing.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that for some people, good levels of chlorophyll can help stimulate the immune system, and we find it brilliant for boosting flagging energy. Here’s what else it can help.
1. Can help control hunger
Research suggests that chlorophyll can be helpful in managing hunger pangs and can help stabilise blood sugar levels.
2. Improves digestive health
It has been shown to help reduce constipation and associated intestinal gas.
3. Promotes internal cleansing
Chlorophyll has been shown to bind to toxic metals and other pollutants, thereby hampering their absorption into the bloodstream.
4. High levels of health-giving antioxidants
It protects cells from oxidative damage by eliminating free radicals and reducing cell damage.
Chlorophyll is present, in varying degrees, in all green vegetables. Spinach, parsley, wheatgrass, barleygrass and broccoli are particularly high so make sure they feature regularly in your diet.
Here’s to your good health.
