Chlorophyll is the dye that gives green plants their color. But chlorophyll is much more than just a dye - it is the plant compound that is responsible for the process of photosynthesis. Without chlorophyll this process could not take place. Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy into chemical energy that can later be released to fuel the organisms' activities. Chlorophyll also has a variety of health benefits and is considered to be a potent detoxifying agent. We use a combination of two different sources of chlorophyll and the health benefits of these chlorophyll sources go far beyond the known health benefits of simple chlorophyll. The first chlorophyll source is alfalfa powder, which is one of the most concentrated chlorophyll sources on this planet. In addition to chlorophyll, this plant extract contains a variety of essential vitamins, minerals and healthy plant compounds, including niacin, biotin, B vitamins, vitamin A, D, E and K, as well as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and potassium.
The use of alfalfa in traditional folk medicine goes back to the fourth millennium BC and includes almost all traditional medical systems like the ancient Persian medicine, the traditional Chinese medicine the ayurvedic medicine and naturopathy of Native Americans. In addition to alfalfa powder, GN chlorophyll contains a chlorophyll copper complex that provides highly concentrated chlorophyll in combination with bio available copper and can prevent a deficiency of this important trace element, too.
The best known health benefits of chlorophyll include the numerous detoxifying effects of this potent plant compound. Chlorophyll is capable of stimulating the excretion of heavy metals and environmental toxins as well as the excretion of carcinogenic mold fungi toxins, also known as aflatoxins. Chlorophyll has a chemical structure known as a polyphonic ring, which binds heavy metals so that they can be excreted through the intestine. Chlorophyll can even protect your body from the harmful effects of highly toxic dioxin, because it prevents the absorption of dioxin in the digestive tract and promotes the excretion of dioxin already present in the body. This can help you to avoid long-term health problems due to these highly toxic substances and in addition, the detoxification organs of your body, including liver and kidneys, as well as the digestive system, are relieved so that these important organs of your body can devote themselves to other important tasks.
The detoxifying effects of chlorophyll are supported by the pronounced antioxidant properties of this healthy phytonutrient, which can help to protect cells, DNA and organs of your body from damage by free radicals. Elevated levels of free radicals due to environmental toxins, an unhealthy diet, or strong physical exertion are associated with numerous diseases including cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to this, free radicals are considered to be one of the main reasons for premature aging of the human body. But chlorophyll can do much more: it can support the function of your immune system, has antibacterial effects, accelerates wound healing, promotes a healthy digestion and can alleviate inflammatory reactions. In addition, it promotes the absorption of iron and stimulates the production of red blood cells, resulting in positive effect on the health of your cardiovascular system. Even in treatment of different types of cancer, chlorophyll appears to have a measurable effect. It has been shown that chlorophyll can help to kill colorectal cancer cells by blocking an enzyme required for cell division of cancer cells. Chlorophyll also appears to protect the intestinal mucosa from harmful toxins and an uncontrolled cell proliferation. Some scientists believe that chlorophyll can be synergistically combined with conventional chemotherapy to enhance its effects.
In addition to all these health benefits, chlorophyll acts alkaline in the body and can promote the acid-base balance, which is usually shifted to the acidic range by our modern diet. This relieves the natural acid buffer systems of your body and can lead to a better overall health and a better well-being.
The alfalfa powder contained in GN chlorophyll has a variety of health benefits that go far beyond the benefits of its chlorophyll content. Alfalfa is used in various traditional medical systems to alleviate arthritis and joint pain, to treat problems of the urinary tract including kidney stones, to reduce fever, to relieve menstrual problems in women and to alleviate migraine and chronic headaches. In addition, alfalfa powder can promote a healthy digestive system and a regular bowel movement and contains a variety of enzymes that can support and improve digestion and absorption of nutrients contained in the food. Furthermore, this plant extract can lower the levels of harmful cholesterol and reduce an accumulation of plaques in your blood vessels, thereby promoting the health of your cardiovascular system. The alfalfa plant is also known as an effective diuretic that can help to excrete excess water from your body in a natural and gentle way.
The bio available copper contained in the chlorophyll copper complex of GN chlorophyll can help to protect your body from the negative effects of a copper deficiency, which very common in our modern society due to an increased consumption of heavily processed foods and a zinc supplementation without an adequate copper intake. A copper deficiency can reduce the function of your immune system, weaken the structure of your blood vessels and your bones, promote neurological failures, anemia and thromboses and increase the risk of coronary heart disease.
