Chlorophyll Supplements

Postby herbalstore » Sat Aug 22, 2009 11:41 am

Chlorophyll is an important natural product, beneficial to humanity. The chlorophyll molecule bears a striking resemblance to hemoglobin, the red pigment in human blood.

Don't need to spend $$ for supplements.
Get it fresh with dark leafy greens!!!
Besides the chlorophyll, you will get antioxidants also
(which do not have a shelf life like the supplements do).

Except for the color, function, the use of Mg instead of Fe :) And AFAIK humans are able to produce their heme groups without getting it from food.

Just wanted to point out that supplementation of an isolated compound is not the optimum way to go. You need all the other vitamins, co-factors/enzymes, antioxidants, trace elements/minerals, etc., that are found in the complete package of pure whole foods, to work harmoniously in your body. You run the risk of perturbing the homeostasis/balance of your metabolism when supplementing that way. Though I would accept supplementing if a blood test found a certain item to be deficient then I would target that deficiency by using supplements minimally and eating foods high in that item.

Just wanted to point out that supplementation is useless if you have a balanced diet. Unless you are pill peddler that is linig his pocket by the sale of magic pills...

That is so true! I also have the same perception at first that I need to take chlorophyll supplements. But my doctor proved me wrong, he suggested that I go on my normal vitamins intake and just bulk up on my intake of dark leafy greens. :lol:
