After reading a review of Liquid Chlorophyll on Shared Reviews, I found myself wanting to try it. However, I felt I needed to find more information about it. What I found was this green liquid might be the ultimate supplement for health.
Chlorophyll is an excellent source of vitamin A, C, E, K, calcium, folic acid, iron, and protein. Makers of the supplement can pull the liquid from a variety of sources. Alfalfa, Algae, Barley, Spirulina, and Wheat Grass are the plant sources most producers use.
As we all know, chlorophyll is the pigment in plants, the rich hues of green we see in vegetation. It makes them grow and produce oxygen. Much of the literature I read likened chlorophyll to being the plants' "blood". During my research, I found out the chemical makeup of chlorophyll is almost identical to human blood. The difference comes down to a single molecule. In plants, the iron molecule is traded for magnesium.
Plants use photosynthesis to create their own energy to sustain health. Healthy green vegetation shows us that a plant is getting the perfect amount of nutrients from the sun and water it absorbs. Chlorophyll produces the oxygen plants release and sugar, which is the food they need to grow. Humans also need sugar and oxygen to survive.
Some health benefits of chlorophyll:
* It helps your body boost your red blood cell production.
* It aids in cleansing your body of harmful toxins.
* It reduces body odor and bad breath.
* It lowers acid levels.
* It boosts your immune system, aids in tissue repair, and has healing properties.
* It increases energy levels.
* According to studies done, chlorophyll is an anti-carcinogen.
I found there might be some risk to using chlorophyll supplements. If the source of it came from plants treated with pesticides, exposed to metal in water, or environmental toxins, it may be harmful instead of beneficial. The supplement may also cause digestion disturbances such as upset stomach or diarrhea. Some users may have allergic reactions if they are allergic to the plant sources used or their additives.

Of course, eating fresh green vegetables supplies your body with chlorophyll. My family eats healthy but we generally do not get enough leafy green fresh vegetables. We eat plenty of cooked vegetables but cooking reduces the potency of chlorophyll. I believe Liquid Chlorophyll is just the nutritional boost my family needs.
