Consuming Chlorophyll has become the latest viral trend on TikTok, and social media users all over the world have been buying Chlorophyll supplements to try and make their skin better, as people are claiming that the supplement clears up acne, but is it really beneficial for the users or not. Chlorophyll supplements can come in tablet form, or more commonly on TikTok, a green liquid that you mix into water and drink.
Chlorophyll is a green pigment that is found in algae and plants. It is essential in the process of photosynthesis which allows plants to absorb energy from light. In recent years, there has been a rise in Chlorophyll supplements as research suggests consuming it can have a number of health benefits. Many people on TikTok have claimed that after drinking Chlorophyll for a week, their skin dramatically cleared up, however, it’s important to note that there are always risks with taking supplements too.
According to TikTok users, drinking Chlorophyll water can give you the following benefits:
- It stimulates the immune system
- Cleanse your gut
- Gives energy to your body
- Prevent cancer
- Cleanses unpleasant odors
- Detoxify your blood
- Get rid of fungus from your body
- Cleanse your skin
- Helps wound healing
- Useful for weight loss
But everyone should know before hopping in this hype train that the ability of chlorophyll has only been tested in rats and mice so far. Its effectiveness on human life has yet to be confirmed. Because of that, many health personnel recommends eating green vegetables every day instead of for more optimal health benefits.
Indeed, the liquid chlorophyll which is now being loved by many people is claimed to be harmless and has health and beauty benefits. But of course, as wise people, it is important for us to first evaluate the health trends spread on social media before trying them. Because after all, your health is much more important than just following the trends that are currently popular.
