Newly Found Benefits of Chlorophyll

chlorophyll Chlorophyll
is one of the top-selling dietary supplements
. Chlorophyll has been used to
detoxify and deodorize the body and to support
gastrointestinal health. These health benefits are complemented by
a pleasant taste in the case of Liquid Chlorophyll. A major
component of chlorophyll is the green-colored,
water-soluble chlorophyllin. Researchers at the
prestigious Oregon State University Linus Pauling Institute have
found that chlorophyllin can potentially be used successfully
to prevent and treat cancer. Their findings, published in
the International Journal of
, showed that chlorophyllin inactivates a
cellular enzyme called ribonucleotide reductase (1). This
enzyme is needed by cells to produce DNA, the core substance essential for
cell division. It just so happens that
ribonucleotide reductase is also the target for the
cancer chemotherapeutic drug called hydroxyurea. The Oregon State researchers found that
chlorophyllin provided a tenfold greater benefit against colon cancer cells as
compared to hydroxyurea.
Chlorophyllin almost
completely stopped the activity of the enzyme in colon cancer
cells growing in culture. More specifically,
chlorophyllin appears to prevent
ribonucleotide reductase from being produced in the cell,
while hydroxyurea acts to block the activity of the enzyme
that has already been synthesized. The researchers suggest that
chlorophyllin and hydroxyurea could be combined to
effectively retard the production of DNA in colon cancer cells.
This postulated, combined therapeutic approach is a significant
observation, but the cancer-preventive properties of chlorophyllin
by itself are of equal importance. This brings greater meaning to
the dietician’s suggestion that eating more green salads is
beneficial to health. The same maxim applies to supplementing with
our chlorophyll-containing products. (My favorite benefit of
Chlorophyll? Its Anti-Aging properties 😉
