Here’s the scoop: according to advocates for this green drink, chlorophyll diluted with water gives you more energy. It increases the quantity and quality of red blood cells, which equals better oxygen efficiency and more energy. Chlorophyll also has a heap of health benefits such as powerful antioxidants, vitamin K and C, calcium, protein and has anti-inflammatory benefits.

Health expert, James Duigan whose clients include the likes of Elle Macpherson and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, swears by chlorophyll water as a daily diet staple. In a recent interview he said, “We use chlorophyll drops in water to help keep people alkaline. Diets high in unhealthy food change the body's pH balance, making it more acidic, which can lead to insomnia and weight gain. Alkaline substances are essential to re-balance. We've also found that reducing acidity reduces inflammation and generally makes people feel fresher and cleaner.”

Chlorophyll is found in leafy green veggies, so you could simply make an effort to add more to your diet or, you can make your own chlorophyll water by adding just a few drops of chlorophyll to a tall glass of water. The drops can be found at most health food shops.
