Greens have more valuable nutrients than any other food group on the planet, which is why I consider them my number one superfood. Not only do they contain a wide range of vitamins and minerals, they contain the power of chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is a natural detoxifier. This is because it has been found to help renew damaged tissue, build blood, counteract the effects of radiation, assist with wound healing, fend off bacteria, assist with digestive disorders, increase healthy gut bacteria, remove drug residues from the body, improve liver function and trigger enzymes that produce vitamins A, E and K — all of which are needed to feed the body and help release toxins.
Interestingly enough, the make-up of chlorophyll is almost identical to our blood; the only difference is that chlorophyll carries magnesium at its center and our blood carries iron! What this means for you is that green foods are easily assimilated in our bodies, and can be a powerful source of life giving and cleansing properties!
