United States' Top 25 Nutritional Supplements

20. Chlorophyll

Dollar sales of chlorophyll rose 12.6 percent for the year ending January 2004. A group of related green pigments found in photosynthetic organisms, chlorophyll is believed to detoxify, heal wounds and combat unpleasant odors. The Alternative Pharmacy (Prentice Hall, 1998) cites a study in which the symptoms associated with a subject’s rheumatoid arthritis were “significantly lessened” following supplementation with a chlorophyll-containing green drink. The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database notes that “derivatives of chlorophyll which have been extracted from silkworm droppings seem to have a cytotoxic effect on certain cancer cells.” Unlike the fat-soluble chlorophyll we get from foods, Christianson explains, liquid chlorophyll concentrates are water soluble. “This water-soluble form of chlorophyll,” he says, “is a very effective deodorant for the intestinal tract, but because it is not actually absorbed across the gut lining, it doesn’t actually get in your blood and do things outside of the intestinal tract.”
