WHAT ABOUT CHLOROPHYLL?
In 1984, Dr. Alvin Segelman began experimenting with various kinds of chlorophyll. Results of these studies have been reported over the past 16 years and his publications confirm his findings: Chlorophyllin copper complex as well as certain breakdown products of chlorophyll can neutralize substances that cause mutations in body cells.
Dr. Segelman advises: "Liquid Chlorophyll and Chlorophyll capsules can help neutralize the toxic effects of some mutagens, which are ever-present in our food and water. They work differently at a molecular level and by taking both together; you are more apt to cover all your bases."
Chlorophyll, the green matter in plants, is found abundantly in nature. Through a chemical process called photosynthesis, chlorophyll harnesses the sun's energy in order to perform various metabolic functions.
This is how it works:
Plants absorb sunlight and with that energy, chlorophyll changes water and carbon dioxide absorbed from the air into sugar. Then with minerals absorbed from the earth, the plant is able to make vitamins, fats, proteins and starches that it needs to survive. Animals, including humans and non-green plants such as mushrooms rely upon the food producing capabilities of chlorophyll to also survive.
In 1913, Dr. Richard Willstatter, a German chemist, discovered the functions of chlorophyll, though scientists had separated the pigment from plants. He made the observations and found that "the chlorophyll molecule bears a striking resemblance to hemoglobin, the red pigment in human blood. The red blood pigment is a web of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen atoms grouped around a single atom of iron. Nature's green pigment is a similar web of the same atoms, except that its centerpiece is a single atom of magnesium.
This discovery has lead to chlorophyll's becoming a useful nutritional aid for the human body. It is known to cleanse the body and especially to strengthen the action of the circulatory, intestinal and female reproductive systems. It has been found useful in external skin applications and as a gargle. Chlorophyll is known to neutralize body odors and to act as a natural deodorant.
Scientists have found that chlorophyll helps to "thicken and strengthen the walls of the body cells of living animals. Chlorophyll is a nutritional aid for the immune system, since it helps to strengthen cells so they can use their own defenses when needed. Chlorophyll helps to promote the elimination of toxins from the body.
In natural health care practices, chlorophyll is mainly used in its liquid form. Green plants, especially alfalfa leaves, are used in laboratory processes to extract their chlorophyll content. Copper and sodium atoms replace the magnesium atom in chlorophyll so that it is made into a stable, water soluble liquid. When ingested in its liquid form, chlorophyll remains unchanged until it reaches the small intestine. Chlorophyll can be obtained by eating plenty of fresh, green plants, especially those that are a deep green color. In plant form, chlorophyll is surrounded by fat substances which may result in only partial absorption in the small intestine.
Chlorophyll has been found to be non-toxic, soothing to body tissues and safe for use by people of all ages. It can be used to clean fruits and vegetables when a few drops are added to water. If you would like to use chlorophyll in your nutritional program, Nature's Sunshine makes it available in liquid form and in concentrated capsule form. This product contains 1.8 mg of sodium per serving. Keep in mind that this is a natural product. Like all natural products, the nutritional content can vary slightly from batch to batch. 1.8 mg is our best approximation. The easy-to-swallow capsules provide the deodorant and nutritional qualities of chlorophyll in a portable and tasteless form that requires no mixing. Each chlorophyll capsule contains 50 mg. of combined pure liquid chlorophyll and sodium copper chlorophyllin. (.44 mg. to .89 mg. of Copper per each serving)
