5 Signs You May Be Chlorophyll Deficient


Chlorophyll is the pigment that makes greens, green.  And while to some people this hue is off-putting, it is by FAR one of the most important things you can put in your body every day.

Now, I know what you're thinking... that green things don’t always taste great.  In fact, sometimes they taste just like you’re drinking grass. Yuck.

But what if I told you that flooding your body with chlorophyll could taste amazing? The Lower Sugar*Detox Cleanse offers flavors that are delicious while giving your body what it needs to thrive. 

Flood Your System With Delicious Greens

What is Chlorophyll and Why Do I Need It? 

Let’s take things back to seventh-grade science class… 

Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green pigment. This is known as photosynthesis and is a crucial part of a plant’s life cycle. Without this process, plants could not absorb energy from the sunlight. Sunlight converts into essential nutrients for the plant. 

For us humans, consuming chlorophyll-rich foods is imperative to living a healthy lifestyle. Studies have shown that chlorophyll:  

  • Has Anti-Obesity Properties - Chlorophyll is a great weight loss tool. Dark greens restore the hydrochloric acid (HCL) balance in your stomach over time. Irregular HCL causes intense cravings for unhealthy snacks and actually causes you to overeat. 
  • Improves Digestion: Chlorophyll can aid in digestion by promoting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, ensuring a smoother digestive process.
  • Strengthens the Immune System: Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, chlorophyll helps maintain a strong immune system, keeping you resilient against bugs and viruses. 
  • Contains Antioxidants - Antioxidants keep your body young and healthy. They do so by slowing down the aging process and removing free radical damage from your cells [1]. 
  • Protects Your Hormones - Your endocrine system is the motherboard of your hormones. An unbalanced hormonal system can cause your hunger hormones to be out of whack, which means weight gain. Chlorophyll actually protects your endocrine organs from your ovaries, testes (for men), and your thyroid glands from the daily stress it undergoes from chemicals in our food, air, and daily lives.
  • Is Anti-Carcinogenic - Carcinogens increase your risk of cancer. They can be found in tobacco, alcohol, and chemicals. Consuming leafy greens significantly decreases your carcinogenic load [2].

Incorporate chlorophyll into your life by consuming a variety of dark leafy greens, like kale, spinach, swiss chard, broccoli, wheat grass, alfalfa sprouts and green beans.

The easiest way to consume chlorophyll is by flooding your system with concentrated forms of green cold-pressed juices and smoothies. And the tastiest way to do that is with The Lower Sugar* Detox Cleanse.
