Chlorophyll is a unique substance found in all plant life. It is the pigment that gives plants their characteristic green color. Chlorophyll also absorbs light necessary for photosynthesis, which sustains plant life through the conversion of sunlight into chemical energy. Identified as sodium copper chlorophyllin, this water-soluble extract is derived exclusively from Alfalfa through a natural extraction process. LifeSource Vitamins Triple Strength product delivers 94 servings - offering you a tremendous value.
Chlorophyll is the green liquid found in plants. It is has been compared to blood by botanists, and like blood it sustains life. Chlorophyll is commonly used as a health supplement in the United States and abroad.
Vitamins and Minerals
o According to Paul Pitchford, author of "Healing with Whole Foods," chlorophyll is able to activate enzymes in the body that produce vitamins E, A and K.
o Because chlorophyll is a renewing agent, it is able to help preserve a youthful appearance. It works by maintaining healthy tissue throughout the body. Chlorophyll helps red blood cells collect oxygen to boost cell regeneration. Because hemoglobin, the red blood cells, and chlorophyll share similar molecules, chlorophyll can be used to treat anemia.
Lowers Toxin Levels*
o Chlorophyll combats the pesticides and toxins that have entered the body through the consumption of contaminated fruits and vegetables. Obviously, it shouldn't take the place of washing veggies or fruits before eating, but it will help clear out the residue that is left behind after washing.
Chlorophyll deactivates some carcinogens. According to the Linus Pauling Institute of Oregon State, scientists have been experimenting with the use of chlorophyllin, a derivative of chlorophyll. Chinese populations with large numbers of hepatocellular carcinomas have been the major emphasis in the case study. This study is promising, because it may unlock the key to curing cancer.
o Chlorophyll counteracts inflammation. Sore throats, pyorrhea, gingivitis, arthritis, pancreatitis, and ulcers have all shown drastic improvement when a patient has taken chlorophyll medicinally.
o Liquid chlorophyll has been used to help the digestive system. Drinking chlorophyll allows the body to rid even more of the body's toxins through bowel movements, and cleanses the intestines in the process. Interestingly, liquid chlorophyll acts as a deodorant and removes the smell from feces, as well as other body odors.
Chlorophyll has SO MANY health benefits it makes it a true wonder-food. However, the most amazing benefit it gives comes from the fact that its molecular structure is absolutely identical to hemoglobin except for the center atom. In hemoglobin, this is iron, whereas in chlorophyll it is magnesium. This means that when ingested, chlorophyll actually helps to do the job of hemoglobin (hemoglobin is so vital to the health of our blood, in fact, blood is approximately 75% hemoglobin). It helps to rebuild and replenish our red blood cells, boosting our energy and increasing our wellbeing almost instantly.*
Chlorophyll has the power to regenerate our bodies at the molecular and cellular level and is known to help cleanse the body, fight infection, help heal wounds, and promote the health of the circulatory, digestive, immune, and detoxification systems. Chlorophyll consumption increases the number of red blood cells and, therefore, increases oxygen utilization by the body. Chlorophyll also reduces the binding of carcinogens to DNA in the liver and other organs. It also breaks down calcium oxalate stones for elimination, which are created by the body for the purpose of neutralizing and disposing of excess acid. *
Other Chlorophyll Benefits
So in addition to helping to rebuild and replenish our red blood cells, chlorophyll, being highly alkaline, also gives the body the following benefits:
Anti-Carcinogenic: Chlorophyll 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.*
Antioxidant & Anti-inflammatory: containing high levels of the vitamins A, C, and E, chlorophyll has a strong antioxidant capacity and has also been found to help reduce inflammation.*
Chelation of Heavy Metals: chlorophyll is one of the most important chelates in nature. Its ability to bind to and remove toxic heavy metals such as mercury makes it an extremely powerful healer. I'm about to have four mercury fillings removed, and you can bet that I will be getting PLENTY of chlorophyll into my body after the procedure!*
Antiseptic: while 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!*
Treats Bad Breath: This one is a real bonus and really works! Chlorophyll has a double-action remedy for bad breath. Firstly, as a deodorizer, it will eliminate odors in the mouth and throat, but secondly (and more importantly) it promotes a healthy digestive tract, which is the primary reason for bad breath.*
Rapid Delivery of Magnesium: this has a highly alkalizing effect on the body and helps to deliver much-needed oxygen to cells and tissues.*
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.*
