Surely you learned about photosynthesis in science class but maybe you need a bit of a reminder about what it actually does. In short, it's the process that plants use to convert sunlight into energy. Chlorophyll is the green plant pigment that actually does the work of absorbing that light, and the stored energy is then used to turn carbon dioxide into oxygen. This means fresh, clean air for everyone!

Chlorophyll also has loads of nutritional benefits when ingested by people. It has a nearly identical molecular structure to human hemoglobin, a component of red blood cells which transports oxygen and carbon dioxide through our bodies. Chlorophyll acts as an internal deodorant, which can help with bad breath and body odor. It can also speed the healing of superficial wounds, cuts and scraps in addition to promoting energy throughout the body.

If a vegetable is green, it's probably loaded with chlorophyll, like broccoli, spinach, and peas. (Wheatgrass is an especially formidable source of chlorophyll.) But it's also available as a liquid and pill supplement, which, while not a substitute for real veggies, can give you a boost when you might be short on your daily intake. We like Chloroxygen from Herbs, Etc. This alcohol-free concentrate increases the body's oxygenation giving you tons of energy while helpinh you maintain healthy red blood cell levels. Just squeeze 18 drops of Chloroxygen into a glass of water, watch it turn green, and drink away! And since it's free of sugar, caffeine, and GMOs, it's great for kids too. Plus, they'll love that it turns your tongue green!
