Playing Is Drinking Chlorophyll Water Good for Your Health?

Is the latest trendy green drink something you need to start gulping down for your health?

Adding liquid chlorophyll (the pigment that gives plants and algae their green color) to water might be popular on social media, but does it provide the body any benefits? 

Nutritionist Keri Glassman says chlorophyll is high in antioxidants and can be found in foods like broccoli, parsley, and spinach - and also in supplements that come in pill and liquid forms. 

Fans of the green substance claim it may prevent diseases like cancer, improve your gut health and improve your skin. Keri notes there is not a great deal of research and evidence backing up these claims, but notes there may be a link between chlorophyll and a lower risk of liver and pancreatic cancer.

Keri says chlorophyll does not have a strong taste and many people enjoy it. She also notes it is likely not going to be harmful to add to your routine, but as always, speak with your doctor before taking it.

Of course, taking a chlorophyll supplement should not replace eating a wide variety of green vegetables and The Doctors stress getting chlorophyll from your food is always better than choosing to take a supplement.
