Chlorophyll is a green pigment  that can be found in many vegetables, especially the leafy greens. This biomolecule is very important for photosynthesis because it allows the plants to absorb the light. It also offers a wide range for the human body, including the following:

1. Helps Control Hunger and Cravings

A study from 2013 has showed that compounds which contain chlorophyll can suppress hunger. Twenty overweight women were given test meals on three different occasions one week apart (two meals with chlorophyll, one without). They said that they don’t feel hungry after eating the meals with chlorophyll and their blood tests have showed stable blood sugar levels. These results suggest that chlorophyll could control hunger and promote weight loss.

2. Controls Body Odor

A study conducted in a nursing home with 62 patients showed improvements in the body odors of the test subjects who eat foods rich in chlorophyll.

3. Encourages Healing

A recent study has confirmed that when it’s used as a spray, chlorophyll can help to treat wounds.

4. Promotes Cleansing

Pollutants such as toxic metals can be very harmful to your health. But, chlorophyll has the ability to bind with toxic metals to prevent their absorption. Also, a research has shown that it can do the same with some carcinogens. There was a study which tested the ability of chlorophyll to remove aflatoxin (a carcinogen). Four volunteers were given three servings of the aflatoxin with their meals. Two of them were also given a tablet of chlorophyll. The results showed that after 24 hours, there was  95% elimination of carcinogens in the volunteers who consumed chlorophyll tablets

5. Protects DNA Against Fried Foods

Fried foods contain chemicals that can damage the colon tissue and the DNA of colon cells. In one study, participants who ate fried foods with chlorophyll-rich-foods had less DNA damage of colon cells than the ones who only ate fried foods.

6. Super Potent Antioxidant Action

Chlorophyll has many nutritional and antioxidant properties. It protects cells from oxidative damage by eliminating free radicals.

7. Promising Potential for Cancer Therapy

Although we can’t confirm that chlorophyll can cure cancer, many researchers believe that it might have a very big therapeutic effect in the near future. For instance, a study has showed that men with lower levels of dietary chlorophyll had higher risks of getting colon cancer. Also, another study confirmed that chlorophyll stimulates liver detoxifying enzymes.

8. Effective Against Candida albicans

Candida infection causes fatigue, depression, and digestive problems. A research has confirmed that isolated chlorophyll solutions can stop the growth of Candida albicans.

9. Relieves Systemic Redness and Swelling

Traditional medicine has used green leaves for infections, but their amazing healing effects have been forgotten in the age of modern medicine. That’s why we remind you that green leaves can reduce swelling and redness!

10. Promotes Healthy Iron Levels

Chlorophyllin, a modified form of chlorophyll can be highly effective for anemia. By swapping iron for magnesium at the center of the molecule, it gives a bioavailable form of iron which the body can use. So, don’t wait and start consuming chlorophyll.
