Chlorophyll is a pigment that gives plants and algae their vibrant green color. The emerald plant compound is known for bestowing us with numerous health benefits like providing antioxidant properties, supporting a healthy inflammation response, and promoting healthy metabolic function. It’s also used as a blood-builder since chlorophyll is chemically similar to hemoglobin, an important protein in red blood cells.
Although all green vegetables contain chlorophyll, a few plants stand out of the crowd when it comes to their sheer concentration of the compound. Case in point – wheat grass. The freshly sprouted leaves of wheat grass are made up of 70 percent chlorophyll, making it arguably the best source of chlorophyll. Our Organic Wheat Grass Juice Powder has a whopping 30 mg of chlorophyll per serving! Another notable jade jewel is nutrient and chlorophyll-dense blue-green algae.
This verdant recipe features these two chlorophyll supplements, cold-dried to perfection and certified organic, to give you a power boost of emerald energy. Other chlorophyll heavyweights include Organic Barley Grass Juice Powder, Organic Nettle Leaf Powder, and Organic Kale Powder, so feel free to use any of these in the recipe as you may have on hand.
