Chlorophyll is a green light-absorbing pigment, containing both vitamins (A, C, E, and K) and antioxidants. It is found in plant leaves and stems and is a great source of protein, magnesium, iron, and calcium. Chlorophyll molecules, located inside of chloroplasts along with thylakoid membranes, pass energy through the photosystems to the central chlorophyll molecule. This is how photosynthesis occurs. Not only does this green pigment aid plant life, it’s also beneficial for human health. Chlorophyll is known to fight cancer, detox vital organs such as the liver, support healthy digestion, and revitalize and purify skin. The increase of oxygen intake and circulation it can cause also helps to minimize head, muscle, and joint discomfort.

Green leafy vegetables that contain a significant amount of chlorophyll:

Green beans
Sugar snap peas
Chinese cabbage

While consuming chlorophyll helps you to manage weight control, you can also utilize the benefits of this superfood in a variety of ways. An alternative method is to orally take chlorophyll capsules or to add liquid droplets into your beverages. You can also use an organic chlorophyll face mask, which is available for all skin types. This method protects your skin cells from further damage and prevents free radicals. Common organic face mask ingredients include Spirulina Powder (blue-green algae), Wheatgrass Powder, Chlorella Powder (freshwater green algae), and Ylang Ylang Oil. If you purchase bath bomb molds, you can combine 1 TB of these face mask ingredients combined, with those listed below, and even create your own chlorophyll bath bomb!
