Yes, I am recommending to put the green pigment that's responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis in your water. Think about it – plants need chlorophyll to live – so it only makes sense that humans would benefit from it too. And we're already eating it, even if we don't realize it, in leafy green vegetables. But, if you're trying to sneak more into your diet, you should definitely try chlorophyll water. I honestly believe it's the newest and most convenient form of healthy detox, as I just drop liquid chlorophyll into my morning glass of water and move forward with my day. 

"In addition to being nutritionally fabulous for you, chlorophyll is a detoxifier that promotes energy and weight loss," says holistic nutritionist Elissa Goodman. Chlorophyll promises a ton of great benefits that are guaranteed to win you over.

1. Detox Your Body

Chlorophyll binds with environmental pollutants, such as toxic metals, pollution, and certain carcinogens, through which it promotes cleansing. Detox is so important for a person's body, as it fuels us with more energy, is a proponent for mental clarity, and offers the potential for weight loss. 

2. Alkalize Your Diet

Fun fact – cancer cells cannot survive in an environment with an alkaline pH. Alkaline is another way of saying "basic", which in this context means a pH ranging from 7 to 14. Our ideal body pH is 7.30 - 7.45 meaning we live best when we're basic (in more ways than one... am I right, ladies?). Chlorophyll prevents excess acid, which also helps prevent sickness.

3. Boost Your Immune System

Chlorophyll enhances your immune system, which is always great because your immune system is what keeps you healthy. This pigment stimulates the bone marrow, which is the grounds for production of white blood cells, and WBCs ward off bacterial and viral invaders, thus fighting off infection. 

P.S. I can attest to chlorophyll preventing sickness. I forgot to drink my chlorophyll water for a week, and in that week, I caught a cold. The only time I started feeling better was after I started drinking my daily chlorophyll again. It's a real lifesaver.

4. Replenish Your RBCs (and Help Prevent Anemia)

This was the factor that I found the most exciting! Chlorophyll shares a similar molecular structure with the hemoglobin in our red blood cells; the only difference is in its core – hemoglobin's core consists of iron, while chlorophyll's consists of magnesium. But turns out, that doesn't really make a difference, as after the consumption of chlorophyll, research shows that both hemoglobin and hematocrit levels significantly increased

5. Heal Your Skin

Ever since I started drinking chlorophyll water, people have been complimenting my skin, saying I have some sort of glow. And I believe them – glows do come from within after all. Chlorophyll also reduces inflammation and generally helps with mild to moderate acne. In addition, chlorophyll serves as a natural deodorant! No complaints here. 

6. Lose Weight

Chlorophyll has been proven to help people trying to lose weight. Drinking chlorophyll water won't shed the pounds, but it does help on top of a healthy diet and exercise regiment. I find it a lot easier to eat healthier and workout harder when I start my mornings with chlorophyll water, as I feel a lot more naturally energetic and refreshed right when I wake up. Also, chlorophyll helps reduce cholesterol levels. 

Chlorophyll water kind of has become my answer to everything. Feeling sick? Chlorophyll water. Going out drinking tonight? Chlorophyll water. Went out drinking last night? You get the picture. It's the easiest form of detox I know of that doesn't force me to sacrifice indulgences or time.
