As we know, green plants would make use of carbon dioxide, water and minerals to produce new energy under the sunshine. It is the process of photosynthesis. The most important and essential material of the process is called chlorophyll, which only exists in green plants. Scientific research has indicated that chlorophyll is peculiar to plants. Therefore, other creatures, including animals, are unable to provide energy for themselves. What they can do is to obtain energy from the nature.

Chlorophyll is a kind of precious nutrition. It plays an indispensable and crucial role in the life of human beings. Experts tell us that if we eat 300 grams to 400 grams of green vegetables and fruit each day, we would absorb enough chlorophyll.

This natural pigment has many functions in health care. First of all, it strengthens the ability of hemopoiesis of cells. There is a plenty of iron in this chemical, which could serve as a nature material to produce blood. Without it, people would be unable to have adequate blood and the blood circulation would be in danger. The Nobel Prize winners, Dr. Richard Willstatter and Dr. Hans Fisher, have already found that the structure of this pigment is almost identical with that of erythrocytes. Therefore, it is quite helpful for lying-in women and trauma patients. No wonder that it is regarded as the green blood.

Secondly, it is the best natural antidote. Dr. Bernard Jensen, an American dietitian, has pointed out that it can eliminate pesticides and toxins left by the medicine in the human body. The wastes would be driven out of the body later by the radioactive substances. He also has found out that the large amount chlorophyll can help increase the number of erythrocytes. We can easily come to a conclusion that it can prevent people from infections and kill the pain. Moreover, people are suggested to drink as much as possible vegetable juice to keep the oral cavity and the intestines clean.

Thirdly, it provides the human body with a great amount of vitamin C and minerals, which are necessary for the vital activities. It keeps the inner environment alkaline and activates the enzymes. According to experts, its combination with enzymes makes life continue.

In addition to its medical functions, chlorophyll makes people beautiful. The experts at Temple University tested 1200 patients to find that it can solve many skin problems. A recent essay published in Britain has shown that it can help with the infection of the skin as well.
