Still haven’t ditched your toxic deodorant, toothpaste or mouthwash because you’re worried about odor? Liquid chlorophyll is one of the most underrated, yet most beneficial natural products available and might be the answer to helping you take one more great green step towards total health.

So what is chlorophyll? In basic terms, chlorophyll is what makes plants green. Through photosynthesis, plants convert the sun’s energy into chlorophyll and then release oxygen into the atmosphere. (Flashback to high school biology anyone?) Just as blood is important for human life, chlorophyll is important for plant life. If the chlorophyll is drained from a plant, it will die.

The benefits of chlorophyll, found in both foods and supplements are numerous. Chlorophyll is best known as a powerful anti-oxidant, cleanser, and detox with anti-inflammatory properties. It stimulates and assists in the repair and healing of damaged tissues. Chlorophyll is also a wonderful filter for pollutants; in fact, regular ingestion of chlorophyll has proven to be a great neutralizer of environmental pollution and would be beneficial for smokers. Chlorophyll has great deodorizing properties and can reduce body odor and bad breath. Chlorophyll has also been known to fight the deposit of carcinogens in the body and is known to help in dealing with the side-effects of drugs and other toxins.

What’s the best way to get it in your diet? The best sources of chlorophyll are raw, leafy green vegetables, Wheatgrass, barley, alfalfa, and Spirulina (blue green algae). Keep in mind that cooking vegetables, even lightly usually kills the chlorophyll content in the plant. Another fantastic source is Liquid Chlorophyll from Nature’s Sunshine. I’m not affiliated with this brand but have found that it is the most refreshing and tasty liquid chlorophyll (also preservative free in Canada!) that I have come across yet. I have not been able to confirm if there is a preservative free version in the USA, though I expect they’ll roll out a version due to popular demand.

Taking liquid chlorophyll has helped me let go of the last of my questionable personal care products. It truly cleanses and deodorizes from the inside out and I no longer need any fancy soaps, pastes, washes, creams or sprays. It’s become my refreshing ritual to have a glass of water and liquid chlorophyll first thing in the morning and I feel energized even before having breakfast.

How do you get your daily dose of super greens?
