Chlorophyll Supports the Body’s Detox Pathways

Apr 6, 2021 | Healthy Body

The wonderful deep green hues of plants and vegetables comes from a pigment known as chlorophyll. Plants use chlorophyll along with sunlight to obtain nutrients. In many cultures, chlorophyll has been used as a supplement for healthy aging, acne treatment, wound healing, and supporting detoxification. In holistic medicine, chlorophyll is recognized for its many protective properties, particularly against the accumulation of pollutants in the body, such as dioxins and PCBs.

Some of the many foods that are abundant in chlorophyll, include but are not limited to:

  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Dark leafy greens such as spinach and kale
  • Herbs such as parsley, nettle, alfalfa
  • Green tea leaves
  • Wheatgrass

Algae (e.g., chlorella and spirulina) is dense in chlorophyll. Blue-green algae in particular has been used in traditional and holistic medicine to provide foundational nutritional support for organs involved in elimination and detoxification. Chlorophyll seems to promote the excretion of toxins from the body’s essential detox organs and pathways such as the liver and intestines.

Chlorophyll supplements are available in different forms: drops, pills, capsules, powder, juice, or concentrated liquid.
