What is chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll (a term that comes from the Greek language, where 'chloros' means green) is a green pigment found in absolutely all living plants, which has a fundamental role in converting sunlight into energy needed for plant growth through a process called photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is also popularly known as 'green blood' because of its similar chemical structure to haemoglobin in human blood (the porphyrin ring).

One of the first researchers to establish the functions of chlorophyll was the German chemist Dr Richard Willaster, whose discovery of the link between sunlight and the emergence of life on earth has revolutionised the scientific world ever since.

Subsequent research has been able to identify the chemical structure of chlorophyll, which differs from hemoglobin in human blood only by aan element (iron in the case of haemoglobin and magnesium in the case of chlorophyll). This discovery kick-started the study and application of chlorophyll's healing potential in medical practice.

Emile Burgi, a Swiss researcher, has highlighted the beneficial effects of chlorophyll in cases of anaemia, heart problems, high blood pressure and general health.

How is chlorophyll obtained?

Chlorophyll is obtained by manually or mechanically pressing green leafy plants or by soaking them in plain water for 8 hours at room temperature.

For this we need an electric or a mechanical juicer, in which we put the green leaves of the plant and thus obtain the chlorophyll-rich juice.

You can use leaves of parsley, celery, onion, garlic, dandelion, spinach, nettle or young wheat, oats, barley. The chlorophyll cure will last at least 10 days, consumingincreasing amounts, from 50 ml to 250 ml of green juice obtained from the plant, first dose in the morning on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before a meal.
