Going Green With Chlorophyll

I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day enjoying our freedom.  Thank you to everyone who has served or is serving, so that we can live in this wonderful country!  Yesterday was the first time in a LONG time that I have done absolutely nothing around our house or at the Antique Market, and it was so nice.  I have been feeling a little worn down and it was great to have a day to just relax and rejuvinate.

For a while I have been meaning to share some health tips, tricks and recipes with you.  There is so much I have learned over the past 2 1/2 years durning my mom's battle with cancer.  As most of you know she has chosen to do things wholistically, which has resulted in a drastic lifestyle change for my family.  I am not an extreme health nut, but my diet and daily regimine are drastically different than the average American.  The first thing I thought I would share with you is Liquid Chlorophyll.  At first I wasn't sure of whether or not I would like the minty taste, but it is so subtle and I crave the chlorphyll in the mornings.  It is something that is so easy to add into your regimen and has so many health benefits.  I began drinking this daily at the recommendation of my herbalist...yes I go to an herbalist and she is AMAZING.  (more on that later.)

Here are the benefits and how it works from Nature's Sunshine (the company I order from).

  • Helps promote the natural blood-cleansing functions of the body.
  • Strengthens cells.
  • Promotes a strong immune response.
  • Supports the intestinal system.
  • Deodorizes the body, including the bowel.

How It Works:

Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that harnesses the sun’s energy in photosynthesis. The chlorophyll molecule is chemically similar to human blood, except that its central atom is magnesium, whereas that of human blood is iron. It performs metabolic functions in plants such as respiration and growth.
Chlorophyll supports the natural blood-cleansing process. It is known to help cleanse the body and maintain the action of the circulatory, intestinal and female reproductive systems. Chlorophyll helps protect and support healthy cells and promotes the elimination of toxins from the body. In addition, chlorophyll helps neutralize normal body odors and acts as a natural, “internal” deodorant. It can also be useful in external applications and as a freshening gargle. Liquid Chlorophyll may help improve immune response.

I also found this website that explains it more in depth.

*My one disclaimer:  people are going to look at you weird and you will often get asked, "What is that green stuff?" ;)
