Chlorophyll, the green matter in plants, is found abundantly in nature. Through the process of photosynthesis, chlorophyll harnesses the sun’s energy in order to perform various metabolic functions. When humans and other animals eat plant chlorophyll they benefit from the sun’s energy, too. Furthermore, scientists have discovered that chlorophyll is molecularly very similar to the red pigment in the human blood cell, the difference being that the human red pigment has a central atom of iron, while the plant green pigment (chlorophyll) has magnesium as the central atom. (Liquid Chlorophyll is made from chlorophyllin copper complex whereby the center atom is copper instead of magnesium).
Did you know? Chlorophyll has been called “Liquid Sunshine” because it absorbs energy from the sun. Out of a number of known plants, 260,000 are classified as higher plants, which means that they contain chlorophyll and perform a process called photosynthesis. In photosynthesis, plants utilize the energy provided by sunlight to manufacture carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water. All the members of the higher plant group have the potential to offer health benefits. Only 10 percent, however, have actually been studied for this purpose.
Features & Benefits:
- Chlorophyllin can be used to control body odors, as an internal deodorant.
