Green Blood Chlorophyll is sometimes called green blood. This is because of its similarity in make-up to human blood and its high oxygen content. The chlorophyll molecule bears a striking resemblance to hemoglobin, the red pigment in our blood. A single chlorophyll atom of magnesium is surrounded by a web of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. The red blood pigment of hemoglobin consists of the same web of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, but they surround a single atom of iron . So, to be clear, chlorophyll has a single atom of magnesium, while hemoglobin has a single atom of iron, otherwise, they are the same..
Health Benefits of Chlorophyll This similarity to blood has led doctors to use chlorophyll for problems such as anemia with very promising results. Chlorophyll seems to thicken and strengthen the cell walls in living animals, which, logically, led to the question of whether or not it could be used to help the body combat bacterial invaders. While chlorophyll has no antiseptic qualities of its own, it does help cells to combat germs. By strengthening the tissue, it increases the disease resistance of cells and inhibits the growth of bacteria.
Chlorophylls beneficial effects on health are quite remarkable. It has been observed to fight deep lying infections, cleans open wounds, relieve chronic sinus conditions and slow colds. Part of its healing powers come from its high mineral content. It is rich in magnesium, iron, potassium and copper. The iron in chlorophyll attracts oxygen, which helps in the treatment of anemia and helps rejuvenate the thyroid. Potassium is important in promoting a healthy heart and for building and maintaining muscle. Copper is vital to the overall health of the body. Chlorophyll seems to encourage the natural healing process.
In addition to the above mentioned health benefits, Chlorophyll is good for a long list of positives: A natural detoxifier Cleanses the liver of toxins Nutritionally supports immune system function Aids in the growth and repair of tissue Stimulates red blood cells to improve oxygen supply Useful in chelating heavy metals and removing them from the body Rich in calcium for bone health Helps to neutralize pollution Acts as a natural deodorizer for reducing bad breath and body odor Promotes gastrointestinal health and regularity Helps heal open sores and other skin irritations Cleans and deodorizes bowel tissue Aids hepatitis improvement Aids hemophiliac conditions Cleans teeth and gums Improves varicose veins Relieves sore throat, inflamed tonsils and makes an excellent throat gargle Reduces inflamation pain Builds a high blood count May help with Gastrointestinal and other internal bleeding (The above statements are the opinion and observations through the reported regular use of liquid chlorophyll.
