Chlorophyll is an antioxidant and is also alkaline, which can help to counteract the acidic nature of processed foods. Chlorophyll has the power to regenerate our bodies at the molecular and cellular level helping to cleanse the body, fight infection, help heal wounds, and promote the health of the circulatory, digestive, immune, and detoxification systems. Chlorophyll also reduces the binding of carcinogens to DNA in the liver and other organs. It also breaks down calcium oxalate stones for elimination, which are created by the body for the purpose of neutralizing and disposing of excess acid.
Chlorophyll is the molecule that absorbs sunlight and uses its energy to synthesize carbohydrates from CO2 and water by a process known as photosynthesis; the basis for sustaining life in all plants. Chlorophyll is the green coloration in leaves. Chloro comes from the Greek word chloros, which means yellowish green because it gave plants their green color or pigmentation. Chlorophyll to plants is like blood to humans. It is important in many plant processes such as growth and respiration. Since animals and humans obtain their food supply by eating plants, photosynthesis can be said to be the source of our life processes, too.
The structure of a chlorophyll molecule is very similar to the structure of haemoglobin – the molecule responsible for transporting oxygen around the body. Haemoglobin takes up oxygen as the blood passes through the lungs and releases it as the blood passes through the body, providing every cell with the oxygen it needs to function.
