Chlorophyll has many benefits… It is capable of neutralizing substances that cause cell mutations and strengthens the cell walls of the small intestine and colon. It has an exceptional deodorizing effect on your body and on the stools you have during a bowel movement. I drink my green drink the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. This helps to activate your colon and stimulate it to have a bowel movement.
Chlorophyll is a natural source of vitamins and minerals that support the bloodstream, bowels, kidneys and liver. Chlorophyll is green and may look like it would taste very bad, but never judge a book by its cover. belive it or not, it tastes very sweet and does not leave any bad tastes in your mouth at all.
Chlorophyll is the green photosynthetic pigment present in chloroplasts which provides the energy necessary for photosynthesis . The intense green color of chlorophyll is due to its strong absorbencies in the red and blue regions of the electromagnetic spectrum , and because of these absorbencies the light it reflects and transmits appears green. It is capable of channeling the energy of sunlight into chemical energy through the process of photosynthesis . In this process the energy absorbed by chlorophyll transforms carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates and oxygen .
Chlorophyll has the capability to combat pesticides and toxins that have entered the human body through consumption of contaminated foods. Even if the fruits and vegetables are being washed before consumption, there are still residues of harmful elements in those foods that can be taken in the body. When these residues gather inside the body and were not eliminated, it could lead to diseases. Good thing Chlorophyll could suck those chemicals away and out of the body. Studies have also shown that chlorophyll has some promising role in the deactivation of some carcinogens. This, however, is not yet certain but scientists are doing their part in unlocking the code of cancer treatment.
Chlorophyll has some anti inflammatory properties that can help deal with arthritis , gingivitis, pancreatitis, and other conditions that are manifested with inflammation episodes. Also, chlorophyll has the capability to cleanse the colon and greatly reduce body and fecal odor.
Chlorophyll can be shown to be vital for photosynthesis by destarching a leaf from a variegated plant and exposing it to light for several hours. (Variegated leaves have green areas that contain chlorophyll and white areas that have none.) When tested with iodine solution, a color change revealing the presence of starch occurs only in regions of the leaf that were green and therefore contained chlorophyll. This shows that photosynthesis does not occur in areas where chlorophyll is absent and constitutes evidence that the presence of chlorophyll is a requirement for photosynthesis.

Chlorophyll, via its central role in photosynthesis, reflects harmony on both the sub-cellular and macro levels. On the sub-cellular level, the conversion of light energy via chlorphyll into useable chemical energy requies the complex coordination of several parts. On the higher level, the harmony between green plants, animals , and the environment is seen in the fact that plants use chlorophyll and water to convert carbon dioxide into glucose and free oxygen, while animals correspondingly use the oxygen and trapped energy stored in plant biomass and return carbon dioxide.
Chlorophyll absorbs most strongly in the blue and to a lesser extent red portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The green portions of the electromagnetic spectrum, including wavelengths between five hundred and approximately six hundred nanometers, are not absorbed well, but are reflected by the plants, hence the green color of chlorophyll-containing tissues like plant leaves .
