Great, I can’t believe it! This is a TikTok trend that I’ve known for years.
I definitely feel like “influencers” are overwhelmed with what this green liquid can do, but there are still some great benefits.
In addition to playing an important role in plant and vegetable health, chlorophyll also reports health benefits in humans. It is considered a natural source of antioxidants.
There are many benefits to adding liquid chlorophyll to your water (I do it in the morning) and I’ll list them for you:
- Stimulates the immune system
- Detoxifies your blood and helps bring oxygen to the red blood cells
- Cleans the intestines
- Improve digestion
- Invigorates the body
- Reduces inflammation
- It’s alkalizing
- Packed with nutrients and vitamins
- Improves liver detoxification
- Helps protect your skin
I’ve been drinking chlorophyll water for a couple of years. I encourage you to try it out if it’s something that interests you. It’s a small change you can make in your day that can have a lasting impact over time.
Foods high in chlorophyll
Chlorophyll is not considered an essential nutrient, so there is currently no FDA recommendation on dosage. However, most practitioners recommend 100-200 mg per day. The darker the green, the higher the chlorophyll content. You can find it in:
- Cereal grasses – wheatgrass and barley grass are high on the table. Wheatgrass, which was extensively studied by Charles Schnabel in the 1930s and 40s, can be classified as one of the healthiest and most bioavailable foods for humans. One ounce serving is said to provide the nutrients from 4 pounds of vegetables.
- Spinach – 1 cup of organic spinach contains roughly 27 mg of chlorophyll – and yes, studies have shown that eating spinach regularly helps with muscle building and muscle building.
- Kale – One of the toughest greens of winter.
- Parsley – Yes, you can eat the decorations on your plates.
- Nettle – warming nettle tea – a nice way to get into the countryside.
- Other green vegetables – green beans, peas, asparagus, celery, and fiddle ferns – oh my god. If it’s vegetable and green, there’s chlorophyll. Add leafy green herbs like cilantro and thyme to your diet. Don’t forget your floral greens like dandelions and purple greens.
