When I decide to add something to my daily rituals it needs to be something that I feel will add benefit to my wellness. In my recent discovery of chlorophyll and the health benefits I decided to give it a try. I put it in my water bottle and drink it throughout my day.
What is chlorophyll?
A green pigment, present in all green plants and in cyanobacteria, responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis. Its molecule contains a magnesium atom held in a porphyrin ring.
Why is it beneficial?
It’s chock full of vitamins and antioxidants, hence why it makes plants happy and also your skin. Studies have proven that chlorophyll, in its various forms, has been proven to fight carcinogens in the body and reduce cancer risk. It also helps detoxify the liver and can expedite the healing of wounds.
