Did You Know?

A chlorophyll and Haemoglobin (human blood) are almost identical.
The only actual difference between clorophyll and human blood molecules is one
metallic atom element.
The metallic atom is iron in Haemoglobin, while in Chlorophyll the metallic atom is magnesium.

Since Chlorophyll and Haemoglobin are so much alike in atom structure, Chlorophyll is absorbed quickly into the blood stream.
Chlorophyll as medicine

  • Anemia -Chlorophyll aids in rebuilding the bloodstream.
  • Deodorant – when chlorophyll is taken internally in adequate quantities, it reduces or eliminates offensive body and breath odors.
  • Skin problems – chlorophyll ointments are very beneficial in treating various skin diseases including weeping & dry eczema, insect bites and infections.

Look good, smell good; what more could you ask for ( except for world peace, a winning lottery ticket and immortality)
