Chlorophyll. You know it is that green-toned pigment found in fruits, veggies, and other plants. Known to be a source of vitamins A, C, E, and K, chlorophyll is also used for its detoxifying properties (flushing out heavy metals and cancer causing chemicals). What about digestion?
Like probiotics and black tea, “chlorophyll helps with digestion by increasing the beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. It’s also antimicrobial, so it gets rid of harmful bacteria while maintaining healthy ones,” says Lisa Samuels, RD, founder of The Happie House.
Not to mention chlorophyll is a great detoxer (is that a word). Naturally “chlorophyll works to detoxify the liver, which helps digest fats,” Samuels explains.
Dont for get to add cilantro, parsley, and mint to your smoothies as a way to flush toxins and help boost the benefits of healthier living.
