Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in plants and it supports the growth of plants by absorbing sunlight to synthesis food. The interesting fact about the chlorophyll is its molecular structure is similar to heme, a red pigment found in our blood and is the oxygen carrying portion of haemoglobin. Both haemoglobin and chlorophyll play a vital role in life processes. Haemoglobin is an iron-containing conjugated protein similar to chlorophyll, but the central atom of chlorophyll is magnesium instead of iron.
Chlorophyll improves the quality of red blood cells by increasing the number of your red blood cells and hence, result in better oxygen transportation and make you feel energetic.
On the other hand, studies showed that chlorophyll has healing properties, treating conditions ranging from respiratory tract infections to cancer lesions. Other research also showed that chlorophyll helps prevent inflammation due to its antioxidant content. It also helps in deodorizing for bad breath or body odor, and enhanced wound healing .
Another important fact about chlorophyll is, it is an effective agent for detoxification! It detoxify your liver and cleanses your digestive tract by removing putrefactive bacteria from the colon, and helps heal the mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal tract.
Last but not least, chlorophyll acts like a stored sunshine in our body, performing like vitamin D in regulating calcium. Therefore, for those people who always stay in indoor, such as office workers who receive least sunshine, will need more greens to help regulate calcium in our body .
So, are you ready to getting more sunshine into your body? Let’s “go-green”!
