What is chlorophyll exactly? #NaturesGOLD in service…
You’ve undoubtedly heard of chlorophyll, and you probably know that plants couldn’t live without it. Still, you may wonder: What is chlorophyll exactly, and are there chlorophyll benefits for humans?
As we learned back in science class, chlorophyll is a type of plant pigment responsible for the absorption of light in the process of photosynthesis, which creates energy.
Why is it important for humans beyond sustaining plant life? Turns out, chlorophyll is linked to natural cancer prevention, blocks carcinogenic effects within the body and protects DNA from damage caused by toxic molds like aflatoxin — very similar to way in which chlorophyll-rich chlorella has anticancer properties.
It also holds major promise as a natural weight-loss ingredient, and those are just some of the major chlorophyll benefits for human health, all of which help cleanse the body and allow it to function at an optimal level.
What Is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is the green substance in plants that makes it possible for them to make food from carbon dioxide and water. It’s found in all green plants, including leafy greens and other veggies we commonly eat, plus certain types of algae or bacteria.
Plants and algae use chlorophyll to trap light from the sun that’s needed for photosynthesis, which is why chlorophyll is considered a “chelate.” In fact, it’s considered the single most important chelator found in nature, since it gives plants energy, which then give us energy.
There are two main forms of chlorophyll found in nature: chlorophyll-a and chlorophyll-b. There is a small difference between the two types, basically that each absorbs light from the sun at slightly different wavelengths.
In natural plants containing chlorophyll, there is a ratio of 3:1 chlorophyll-a (a bluish-black solid) to chlorophyll-b (a dark green solid), which both work together to reflect the dark green pigment that’s visible to the human eye.
While chlorophyll is totally natural, a similar semi-synthetic mixture called chlorophyllin is made in laboratories and used in supplements, such as those marketed as “liquid chlorophyll.” These supplements have been in existence for more than 50 years and are commonly used to treat skin wounds, body odor, digestive problems and other health concerns with practically no dangers at all.
