The Many Health Benefits of Chlorophyll
You may have heard a lot of buzz surrounding the healthiness of vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables with deep, rich color tones. In many ways, they’re perfect foods and part of the credit is owed to the chlorophyll they contain. Chlorophyll is a green pigment that’s instrumental in photosynthesis. Research also suggests it’s instrumental in promoting good health.
Helps Control Hunger and Cravings
A study released in September of 2013 determined that compounds containing chlorophyll might help suppress hunger. Chlorophyll rich foods should be considered as an effective way to manage hunger and promote weight loss.
Controls Body Odour
Chlorophyll is good for your body from the inside out, literally. In addition to odour reduction, it also alleviated constipation and gas.
Chlorophyll binds with toxic metals to hamper absorption, and research has shown it can do the same with some carcinogens.
Super Potent Antioxidant Action
Chlorophyll’s status as a superfood is due to its nutritional and potent antioxidant properties. It protects cells from oxidative damage by eliminating free radicals. In turn this may assist in the prevention of come cancers.
Effective Against Candida albicans
Candida infection is a big problem for many individuals and can lead to fatigue, depression, and digestive problems; just to name a few. Research has shown that isolated chlorophyll solutions stop Candida albicans growth.
Chlorophyll: An Excellent Dietary Supplement
Chlorophyll possesses an amazing range of benefits and is readily available to everyone. Chlorophyll rich foods are also healthy in their own right and contain essential vitamins and nutrients needed for cardiovascular, muscular, and neural health. Consume foods containing chlorophyll or take a dietary supplement for best effect. It is a good source of vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K and beta carotene. It is rich in antioxidants, vital minerals such as magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium and essential fatty acids.
