Chlorophyll more like boraphyll????
Chlorophyll is the green pigment that is created by plants which helps them absorb elements including sunlight to perform photosynthesis. Photosynthesis in it’s most basic explanation, is a process where plants take sunlight and turn it into food and energy. Chlorophyll has a green pigment and it is this compound that gives plants their green color. The richer the color the more chlorophyll it has!
Chlorophyll is miraculous. It has many health benefits, making it a super food. The chlorophyll molecule is chemically similar to human blood, except that its central atom is magnesium, whereas that of human blood is iron. It performs metabolic functions in plants such as respiration and growth. 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 approx 75% hemoglobin). It helps to rebuild and replenish our red blood cells, boosting our energy and increasing our wellbeing almost instantly.
Few Facts About Chlorophyll
Helps promote the natural blood-cleansing functions of the body.
Its molecules have magnesium at their core. Every time our heart beats, it uses magnesium – so it’s a critical mineral.
It cleanses the blood and stimulates the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout our bodies.
It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.
It purifies the liver by helping remove old toxic material and heavy metals from the body.
It helps thicken and strengthen cell walls, and (via the A, C and E vitamins) neutralizes free radicals that damage healthy cells, both of which support the immune system.
