Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in the leaves of plants and blue-green algae, used in the process of photosynthesis to draw energy from sunlight. It is rich in nutrients and similar in composition to human blood, and widely used as a natural antioxidant supplement.
HealthPost carries a range of liquid and tableted chlorophyll products, both flavoured and unflavoured.
Chlorophyll supplements have been popular for decades for their purported ability to support the body through a vast range of health disorders, from weight management and wound healing to supporting the immune system during times of illness. Naturally found in the leaves of all plants, and thus in edible form in any green leafy vegetables and sprouts we may eat, it is generally taken in supplement form as a rich green liquid.
Chlorophyll is high in micronutrients including magnesium, and may assist in the management of various gastrointestinal disorders and inflammatory conditions. Considered a superfood for its nutritional value, it is often used as part of cleansing or alkalising programmes, and to improve energy levels and maintain overall wellbeing.
