Liquid Chlorophyll - food supplement
Practically any substance can be a toxin that exerts an irritating and/or harmful effect on the body. It burdens our biochemical functions and adversely affects the functioning of our body. We may encounter toxins as a result of improper diet, side effects of medications, environmental damages or as a consequence of certain metabolic processes. Chlorophyll offers a natural protection against these damages.
Chlorophyll is a good source of vitamins A, C, D, E, B6, and magnesium. It is rich in anti-oxidants, which help protect cells from damage cause by free radicals. Structurally, it is similar to the heme portion of hemoglobin, thus it helps support delivery of oxygen to the cells and tissues of the body, and the removal of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.
Studies have suggested that chlorophyll may support and protect healthy liver function by helping to mitigate undue build-up of toxins, cholesterol and triglycerides in this vital organ. It also may assist in the chelation and removal of heavy metals, and help stimulate bowel function. Studies have indicated it helps to reduce body, urinary and fecal odor.
You should consult with a qualified medical practitioner before taking any supplement.
If you are pregnant or nursing, obtain qualified medical advice before taking this product.
Excessive daily intake of chlorophyll may cause discoloration of the tongue and greenish urine.
Do not exceed the recommended daily intake.
Food supplements cannot substitute for a balanced mixed diet.
Keep out of reach of young children.

Supporting health with chlorophyll
Alkalization and detoxification of the body is gaining ever-growing significance these days and chlorophyll could play an important role in this process. Slowly we are approaching the end of the cold winter months, and the time has arrived for big cleanups, which is true for our body as well. Get rid of the surplus weight accumulated during the winter months and prepare your body for spring. Why devote time and money to high-cost methods and procedures when the optimal tool to reach your target is at hand: Liquid Chlorophyll* by CaliVita provides excellent results when used for alkalization, detoxification or during weight loss programs.**
Chlorophyll is a chlorin pigment, which is structurally similar to and produced through the same metabolic pathway as other porphyrin pigments. At the center of the chlorin ring is a magnesium ion. Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in most plants (e.g. broccoli, lettuce, cabbage, parsley, etc.), algae and other plants like alfalfa, nettle etc. Its name is derived from Greek: chloros "green" and phyllon "leaf". Richard Willstatter was awarded with the Nobel price in 1915 for the description of its chemical structure. When 15 years later another scientist, Dr. Hans Fischer got the Nobel price for his accomplishments in the field of hemoglobin research, the remarkable resemblance of the structure of the two compounds caused great astonishment in scientific circles. Whereas hemoglobin contains an iron ion, the structurally similar chlorophyll contains magnesium ion.
Chlorophyll has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to cure bad breath and unpleasant body odors, to neutralize the smell of stool and urine, for detoxification and as a disinfectant of wounds.
Nowadays the use of chlorophyll is much more diversified, and it is the subject of numerous research programs. In foods or as a nutritional supplement it is primarily used to detoxify the body and for its excellent alkalinizing qualities. It is retrieved primarily from alfalfa, a plant readily available in abundance and one of the richest sources of chlorophyll. In addition, alfalfa is also a rich source of proteins, carotene, vitamins A, D, F, B6 and K, and it contains numerous enzymes as well.
Moreover, chlorophyll has strong antioxidant qualities, promoting the inhibition of the adverse effects of oxidative processes, thus the protection of cells and tissues. Due to these qualities, chlorophyll could be an effective nutritional supplement of any diet with the aim of regaining the alkaline chemistry of the body, even for people who are not used to eat large quantities of alkalizing food like green vegetables. It can be adopted into any of the detoxification diets, largely recommended with the approach of spring, although it can also be consumed for its other beneficial effects. Usually it is recommended as a stimulant and indigestive or for its excellent internal deodorizing qualities.
Liquid Chlorophyll is a product containing chlorophyll, retrieved from alfalfa. Recommended dosage is 1 teaspoon (5 ml) full per day. In the case of a family of 3, one bottle will be sufficient for approximately one month. It is usually taken diluted with water or tea, but thanks to its pleasant ‘green’ taste, provided by its mint oil content, Liquid Chlorophyll can be taken in itself at any time of the day. Externally, Liquid Chlorophyll can be applied on small wounds or as a throat-wash.
Although the use of chlorophyll is safe and free of side effects, slight digestion disorders may accompany its use (e.g. upset stomach or loose stool). Stool and urine may become greenish in color and it can cause a greenish discoloration on the tongue. It is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, due to the lack of adequate research conducted in this field.
