CHLOROPHYLL

(klohr-uh-fil)

PLANTS

Green plants have the ability to make their own food. They do this through a process called photosynthesis, which uses a green pigment called Chlorophyll. A pigment is a molecule that has a particular color that can absorb light at different wavelengths, depending on the color. There are many different types of pigments in nature, but chlorophyll is unique in its ability to enable plants to absorb the energy they need to build tissues.

HUMANS

Simply put, Chlorophyll is an extremely important part in the plants we eat. Chlorophyll is a molecule that harvests the light of the sun and converts it to useable energy by way of a process called photosynthesis. When you eat/drink high amounts of chlorophyll (uncooked green plants), you directly absorb the sun into your body, making your power to shine as a light being that much more bright!

Chlorophyll is chemically similar to hemoglobin, which is a protein that is essential in red blood cells as it carries oxygen around the body.
