Chlorophyll is a pigment inside of plants that takes in light during the process of photosynthesis, which then produces energy. Think of taking chlorophyll as providing sunshine to the insides of your body! This “plant blood” is packed with many powerful antioxidants, essential fatty acids, nutrients and vitamins like vitamin A, C, E, K, and beta-carotene & minerals like magnesium, iron, potassium and calcium.
*IMPORTANT* Chlorophyll is known to turn your tongue & stool green, this is completely normal so don’t be freaked out!
