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
- 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.
