Well most of us just don't' get enough chlorophyll especially, you know the green color element that comes mainly from dark green leafy vegetables. Why so important? Well unless we have enough chlorophyll, our blood, lymph, kidney and urinary systems are likely to be under much stress, caused through systemic acidity.
Magnesium also plays are large role in forming the basis of chlorophyll, so this element is also likely to be deficient. A great supplement in building our reserves of both Chlorophyll and Magnesium is Spirulina, it also has a multitude of trace elements. So supplementing our diets with this goes a long way towards gaining and maintaining good health.
We need around 6-10 grams as a maintenance dose a day in divided doses, take on an empty stomach to get the best results. When in illness the dosage can be increased to 12-15 grams. Best buy is in powder form, add to fresh homemade fruit and veggies juices. Lean more towards vegetable rather than fruit juices, as too much fructose (sugar) contained in many fruits, may elevate blood sugar levels, and for those susceptible to diabetes we need to be cautious.
Of course there are many healthy juice combinations, just remember the overall sugar content within the mix given to taste, so concentrate more on the chlorophyll and magnesium side of the equation. As mentioned these can obtained from dark green leafy vegetables, not from herbs such as parsley, etc. Herbs should be taken in very small amounts in juice form, otherwise severe reactions can very often result.
Celtic or Himalayan Salt is also very important in having 80+ trace elements. Studies indicate that more than 90+% of the global populace is deficient in iodine, especially those who live in inland area's! however iodine is NOT found in the salts named above, for this some regular intake of quality sea salt is required, or the regular consumption of sea foods, especially the crustaceans. The thyroid gland has a major role in controlling our metabolism, if in a hypo or hyper functional state, it can create a myriad of health problems.
Do not use common table salt, it's highly refined and is implicated as a causative factor in many forms of gastrointestinal diseases. Of course there is many more supplements that may be required periodically however the above are the prime basic's that serve to complement a good overall healthy diet and these will be considered in other articles...
