library / Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in plants that has antioxidant activity.

In addition to giving green vegetables their color, chlorophyll is a proven anti-mutagen that guards against the alteration of cellular DNA. Chlorophyll is believed by some researchers to block initiation, the first step in the transformation of normal cells to cancerous ones.
