Chlorophyll Water

Chlorophyll Water

I have been drinking this stuff for years. I especially like to down it before I run long distances or sprint because it helps increase energy by aiding the body in producing red blood cells. Chlorophyll is almost molecularly identical to hemoglobin, the molecule found in red blood cells that carries oxygen, thus oxygenating the blood. It differs only in its central element. In hemoglobin, this element is iron, in chlorophyll, it’s magnesium. Because of this similarity, it helps to power me through long or rigorous workouts, and it is calorie-free.

Additionally chlorophyll is an excellent detoxifier, as it binds to heavy metals and helps remove them from your body. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties, and can help with digestive issues AND reduce body odor. Not bad attributes for a calorie-free beverage!

Choose a brand that is sourced from plants like alfalfa and without additives or preservatives. It should be available at most health food stores. My favorite is DeSouza’s. Add about 1 tablespoon of liquid chlorophyll to 32 ounces of water and I like to mix mine with a few drops of peppermint oil. Happy Health!
