Liquid chlorophyll The Green Blood of Plants

The Green Blood of Plants

Chlorophyll is the stuff that makes leaves green and puts grass stains on your clothes. It is also the undisputed king of blood builders, which is why green leafy vegetables are important to building healthy blood. For those who don't obey mother's injunction to "eat your veggies," liquid chlorophyll may be helpful. Liquid chlorophyll is extracted from plants (usually alfalfa) and stabilized by replacing the magnesium, naturally found in chlorophyll, with copper and sodium. This creates a water soluble substance called sodium copper chlorophyll in, which is used to make liquid chlorophyll.

Liquid chlorophyll is used by natural heath practitioners for a wide variety of blood disorders, including anemia and blood loss. It speeds up the process of building red blood cells and increases the ability of the blood to carry oxygen. It has been consumed in large quantities after heavy blood loss to quickly rebuild the blood volume. For these reason, many midwives find it beneficial for women during pregnancy and after childbirth. It has also helped clear up blood poisoning.

Although liquid chlorophyll does not contain iron, it helps overcome anemia when iron is available from other dietary sources. It appears to stimulate production of blood. Remember that liquid chlorophyll is not a source of magnesium, like natural chlorophyll is, but is a good source of copper. If you want the magnesium, natural fat-soluble chlorophyll is available in soft gel capsules.

 Alfalfa contains natural blood thinning agents called coumarins.
