Water has been become a trendy drink these days. Bottled waters from streams far and wide started the trend, followed by vitamin infused waters. Coconut water took the stage for awhile, for it’s supposedly stellar hydrating properties.Juice bars now sell the popular Master Cleanse concoction of water, lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for about $9 a bottle. On Monday,Twitter was filled with jokes about only drinking water from Mars in the future.
Today’s “next big thing” in the water-verse, is chlorophyll water. Popping up at juice bars all over town, this emerald green bottled water is touted as increasing energy, improving digestion and neutralizing toxins in the body. Now scientists are claiming that chlorophyll water actually helps control hunger.
Studies show that adding cholorphyll compounds to high fat meals reduced appetite, controlled blood sugar and therefore aided weight loss.
Chlorophyll, which is derived from marine plants, has been around for about 50 years and has been shown to be non-toxic. The reported side effects from consuming high levels of the compound are greenish tinged body waste, and increased susceptibility to sunburn.
You can purchase the water from juice bars and trendy health food emporiums, or simply add a few drops of chlorophyll from the vitamin shop to your own water for the same benefits.
