Chlorophyll helps to rebuild and restore red blood cells, and rapidly increase our energy and health. It has the power to regenerate our bodies at the molecular and cellular level. Most important, chlorophyll reduces the binding ability of carcinogens to DNA in the liver and other organs. We have explored and find some of the best smoothie combinations that are rich in chlorophyll and also taste great.
How chlorophyll helps our body?
The greatest miracle of chlorophyll is that its molecular structure is identical to the structure of hemoglobin, with one small difference. The central hemoglobin atom is iron, whereas in the chlorophyll it is magnesium. Hemoglobin is crucial for the health of our blood – the blood is 75% composed of hemoglobin.
When we consume Chlorophyll, it does the work of hemoglobin. Chlorophyll helps in wound healing, it cleanses the body, fight infection, and improves digestion, immunity and blood circulation. Also, it rebuilds and restores red blood cells.
Chlorophyll is amazing. It has so many benefits for our health; it’s no wonder that some of the best smoothie combinations for breakfast must be rich in chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll has the following health benefits:
Alkalizes the body
The acidity of the body can negatively affect our health because it encourages the growth of bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites. Chlorophyll prevents acidity of the blood and makes our body alkaline.
Chlorophyll protects against a range of carcinogens, which are byproducts of our daily contaminated food and environment. Research published in the journals “Carcinogenesis” and “Food and Chemical Toxicology” clearly display that chlorophyll inhibits carcinogenesis.
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory
Chlorophyll contains high levels of vitamins A, C and E and has strong antioxidant properties. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Removal of heavy metals from the body
Chlorophyll is one of the most important chelates in nature. Chelation is the property to bind heavy metals in the complex organic compounds and remove them from the body. Its ability to bind and remove heavy metals, such as mercury and led, from the body makes it a powerful healer.
We recommend that after the removal of amalgam fillings ensure a large intake of chlorophyll, to work out any traces of mercury in the body.
Chlorophyll strengthens the resistance of cells and in this way helps our body to fight off bacteria.
Halitosis (bad breath)
Removing bad breath is a bonus of chlorophyll intake. It works! In addition to acting as a natural deodorant, chlorophyll destroys the bacteria Helicobacter pylori and normalizes gastrointestinal tract.
