Following is an excerpt about chlorophyll water in the latest issue of W Magazine:
THE CLAIMS: Usually dark green in color, the plant-derivative, when bottled with water (for example, the Chlorophyll H2O by Pressed Juicery) purportedly contain antioxidants [that] have been shown to help stimulate oxygen supply to blood cells, which in turn improves circulation and even increases your overall red-blood cell count, vital for energy, seen in the hands of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence. Sakara Life also offers a plant-infused Detox Water Concentrate, (a tincture ideal for when you're traveling or merely away from home), which they specifically made to sip before bed, is also loaded with magnesium, the original chill pill that's been proven scientifically to help you snooze.
THE REALITY: Scientific studies prove drinking chlorophyll has proven to have some benefits. For example, research published in the October 2014 journal Appetite found that using green-plant membranes as a dietary supplement could help induce weight loss and improve obesity-related risk factors, and reduced the urge for palatable food. However, the claims that chlorophyll can detoxify the body from such things as heavy metals is physically impossible—in order to actually detoxify the body from heavy-metal poisoning, you'd need a trip to the emergency room, not a bottle of Holy Water (from Juice Generation, which is arguably the most delicious though, made with coconut water, spirulina, pineapple and basil). However, since there are no reported negative effects to sipping the green stuff—not to mention the many proven effects of magnesium in reducing stress and aiding with sleep—give Sakara Life's Detox Water to get the most out of your drink.
