day 14: chlorophyll 

When it comes to chlorophyll, the saying “powered by plants” takes on a literal meaning. Chlorophyll is a pignment found in plants that aids in photosynthesis- plants turning sunlight into energy. Luckily for us it does so much for our bodies too! Chlorophyll is also found in chlorella but I personally like to also take chlorophyll, for so many reasons! 

Why I take it:

I take it to aid in my body’s endless efforts to detox. Chlorophyll is a powerhouse when it comes to detoxing and it’s linked to being anti-cancer and protects your DNA from mold (among many other things)! I also happen to enjoy the taste and I feel good when I drink it. It is technically a supplement but I don’t really treat it like one. 

This is my favorite brand so far, the serving size is up to 30 drops I think. Sometimes I will take it all at once or spread them out throughout the day. *Side note* it makes your teeth green so make sure you are able to brush them after you drink it! 

When to take it:

I take it whenever I am in the mood but most importantly I try to take it before exercising (yoga, walking, etc) and before I do any type of self care (acupuncture, cupping, massage, etc). It is huge for detoxifying the liver, and our poor livers are working non-stop they need some support too!! 

How it can help you: 

  • cancer prevention 
  • liver cleanse 
  • daily detox 
  • speeds up healing 
  • improves digestion 
  • helps maintain healthy weight
  • internal deodorant 
  • appetite suppressor 
  • protects skin
