Deep leafy greens are vitally important to your health and powerful medicine for prevention and recovery.
A nutritious diet can prevent or cure many chronic diseases like heart disease, ischemic stroke, diabetes, breast and colon cancer.
Need more reasons to eat your greens? Here is one, Chlorophyll.
1. Chlorophyll: life blood and light
Chlorophyll is “plant blood,” which interestingly is nearly identical to human blood at the molecular level. The only molecular difference is that the center element of chlorophyll is magnesium, whereas the center element of human blood is iron. After drinking a big green smoothie, I do sometimes feel a lift as if I have had a blood tran/insfusion.
Chlorophyll is the pigment that makes plants green. Chlorophyll allows plants to convert light into energy. Chlorophyll has "transfusion" enzymes (light into energy) that are of great assistance to the liver in breaking down and eliminating potentially harmful toxins. Studies show that chlorophyll will bind with carcinogens and inhibit their absorption in the digestive tract.
