Chlorophyll recently joined the long list of things celebs are supposedly sipping that makes them look better than the rest of us. (Note: it might just be the money, or the fact that they looked better than us to begin with.) But all of these rumored potions are worth exploring, right? Who doesn’t want the magic solution to looking and feeling great? So does Chlorophyll fit the bill? Livestrong reports that there is “promising preliminary research to support chlorophyll aiding in weight-loss efforts,” primarily through hunger reduction and increased secretion of an enzyme that helps metabolize fat and protein.
Chlorophyll won’t do for humans what it does for plants, of course, which is to allow them to transform sunlight into energy through photosynthesis. But it may improve skin tone and even do a little antioxidant work against free radicals on your behalf. It’ll run you about $15 to test out liquid chlorophyll supplement from Nature’s Way and see if it works for you. As always, ask your doctor before altering your diet or adding supplements.
