Chlorophyll Concentrate Nutritional Information

Chlorophyll inhibits the growth of bacteria, stimulates repair of damaged tissue and protects us from carcinogens. It helps digestion and is good for the skin.


It was a century ago that chemists segregated a green pigment from the green leaves which they called chlorophyll. Dr. Richard Willstatter, in 1913, pointed out that all of life energy comes from the sun. Green plants alone possess the secret of how to capture this solar energy. Out of this process stems much of what we know as life and growth.

The chlorophyll molecule bears a striking resemblance to hemoglobin, the red pigment in human blood. The red blood pigment is a web of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen atoms grouped around a single atom of iron. Nature's green pigment is a similar web of the same atoms, except that its centerpiece is a single atom of magnesium.

Emile Burgi states that chlorophyll is recommended as an excellent specific for influencing anemia of various kinds, for bettering the general condition of health, for improving the action of the heart for reducing blood pressure in cases where it is abnormally high. In cases of heart block, weakness of the heart in conjunction with abnormal blood pressure (usually due to arteriosclerosis) the administration of chlorophyll brought about a slow but rather considerable improved action of the heart. It stimulates peristalsis: improves the intestines and is a mild diuretic.

E. Bircher, a research scientist, called Chlorophyll "concentrated sun power." He says in part, "Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus and the lungs. It raises the basic nitrogen exchange and is therefore a tonic which considering its stimulating properties cannot be compared with any other."

Dr. Carol Wright, professor of Dermatology at Temple University in Philadelphia, used chlorophyll in ointment form in treating several types of skin disease and found it especially effective in chronic ulcers. He also had good response to chlorophyll treatment when using it in cases of impetigo. A report that of two Pennsylvania doctors, Langley and Morgan, which tells of their experience with this substance and 40 patients suffering with skin diseases of eleven different types. One of the most gratifyinq results of treatment with chlorophyll, say the doctors, was its ability to relieve itching and burning.

Chlorophyll Concentrate is nature's deodorant. One capsule is equal to three teaspoons of liquid chlorophyll. It eliminates perspiration odors, bad breath and smelly feet and neutralizes toxins inside our body.

Chlorophyll inhibits the growth of bacteria, stimulates repair of damaged tissue and protects us from carcinogens. It helps digestion and is good for the skin.

Chlorophyll contains calcium, choline, magnesium and potassium. Take one to three capsules each day as an internal freshener.
