What foods are high in chlorophyll? Green foods.  The darker the green, the more chlorophyll. For example:

  • dark, leafy greens especially spinach, kale, chard & collards
  • fresh herbs like parsley, dill & cilantro
  • blue-green algae
  • sprouts
  • wheatgrass
  • matcha green tea
  • green vegetables & fruit like peas, asparagus, broccoli, grapes & celery
  • sea vegetables (seaweed)

Chlorophyll is a phytonutrient that oxygenates & detoxifies the blood. It is rich in enzymes and high in amino acids. It alkalizes the body,  is anti-inflammatory & is an antioxidant. It has been shown to repair damaged DNA and speed up the healing process of wounds.

The trick to retaining maximum chlorophyll in food is to eat it raw or cook/steam it slightly. If you can retain the green color, you will retain the beneficial chlorophyll.
