Chlorophyll gives the plants the green color and has plenty of health benefits for us — from fighting illnesses to boosting energy levels.

Through photosynthesis, plants absorb sunlight, and chlorophyll is an essential component in green plants as it helps the plants in the process. Chlorophyll naturally occurs in all plants, especially in dark green ones.

When eating plant-based foods, we’re also consuming chlorophyll. You can either intake chlorophyll by eating dark green leaves, seaweed and algae or supplement it. But experts recommend taking chlorophyll from foods rather than supplementing them. Plant foods contain antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals. That said, we’ve brought you five chlorophyll-rich foods.
