Superfood Spotlight: Chlorophyll
What You Should Know: Let’s refresh our memories from sixth grade biology class: chlorophyll is a green pigment found in plants which absorbs energy from light in the process of photosynthesis. This harnessed energy is what allows plants to grow and flourish. No wonder it’s been referred to as “green sunshine!”
Why You Should Try It: The most amazing property of chlorophyll might be the fact that its molecular structure is almost identical to that of hemoglobin, the substance our bodies use to build and transport red blood cells. Therefore, chlorophyll can actually help do the job of hemoglobin, increasing the quantity and quality of red blood cells in your body. Amazing fact: it’s even been known to be used in hospital IVs for pain and swelling!
It is only natural that “green sunshine” should bring you energy: taking chlorophyll in capsule, powder, or liquid form will bring you an instant boost of energy and vitality. More healthy red blood cells mean better oxygen absorption in the bloodstream, which means more all around energy and oxygen utilization in the body. And because of its blood health-improving qualities, it can cleanse and rejuvenate your body at a cellular level.
Let’s Get Together: Chlorophyll can be ingested in capsule, powder, or liquid form. We love adding a scoop of Amazing Grass All Natural Drink Powder to our morning smoothies, and can be seen toting bottles of (what else) Pressed Juicery Chlorophyll H2O all day, every day!
