A Spotlight on Chlorophyll

What’s the deal with this green gem of an ingredient? Explore chlorophyll’s role in nature and in the supplement world. 

Chlorophyll is crucial for supporting plant life on Earth and has long been used in the supplement world, but has recently become a trending favorite for wellness lovers of all ages. But what is chlorophyll, and should you incorporate it into your routine?

What is chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll gives plants and algae their vibrant green color. It does not absorb green light wavelengths, but instead reflects them. As a result, it has an instantly recognizable green hue. Chlorophyll plays a key role in photosynthesis, helping plants absorb energy through sunlight and transform carbon dioxide and water into glucose. This glucose, coupled with nutrients from the soil, fosters the growth of plant components. This process releases oxygen into the atmosphere, supporting and sustaining plant life on our planet.

Chlorophyll is found in many of the green vegetables you eat every day. Vegetables like broccoli, green peas, Brussels sprouts, kale, and spinach all contain chlorophyll. Next time you’re eating your veggies, think chlorophyll.

How is chlorophyll used in supplements?

Chlorophyll is oil-soluble, so it can be challenging to work with when formulating supplements. Instead, chlorophyllin, a water-soluble version of chlorophyll, is what is found in dietary supplements. It is usually found in conjunction with a mineral, like copper, to help stabilize it. This complex is called chlorophyllin copper complex and carries the same green hue as chlorophyll.

Chlorophyllin copper complex supports the body’s detoxification pathways and antioxidant pathways.* It also promotes collagen production to support healthy skin and acts as an internal deodorant to help you feel fresh.* At Nature’s Way, we offer a variety of chlorophyllin products so you can find the one that works best for you: softgels, liquids and even gummies.

Let’s go over some of our favorites.
