What is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is the substance that makes plants green. It has been named the “life blood” of plants. Through a chemical process called photosynthesis, chlorophyll harnesses the sun’s energy in order to perform various metabolic functions.
With that energy, plants convert water and carbon dioxide absorbed from air into sugar. With the minerals from the earth, plants are able to make essential nutrients they need to survive. An everyday miracle really.
From What Plant Do we Obtain Our Chlorophyll?
Nn Liquid Chlorophyll is obtained from Mulberry leaves (Morus alba). Morus alba, known as the white mulberry or silkworm mulberry is well-known in the silk-producing countries, namely China, Japan, India and Vietnam.
The young tender mulberry leaves are fed to silkworms to yield high-productivity strains for quality silk, no chemicals can be used in cultivating the mulberry trees. Traditionally Chinese healers use mulberry leaves to rebalance vital energy of the body. Leaves from mulberry grown without the influence of harsh chemicals and pesticides are known to yield chlorophyll true to the natural chemical composition found in the leaves themselves.
Why Do We Use Mulberry to Obtain Our Chlorophyll?
Most other chlorophyll products are generally derived from alfalfa. Chlorophyll obtained from Mulberry leaves has been shown to be superior, with none of the adverse side effects which may occur with alfalfa derived chlorophyll.
