World Organic - Chlorophyll Caps 60 mg. - 100 Capsules
World Organic's Chlorophyll 60 mg are derived exclusively from high quality alfalfa leaves. Chlorophyll is essential to the process of photosynthesis...often called the "building block of life." Without chlorophyll there is no life. Chlorophyll is a natural fat soluble nutrient which World Organic makes water dispersible for premier results.
Chlorophyll (also chlorophyl) is a green pigment found in almost all plants, algae, and cyanobacteria. Its name is derived from the Greek words chloros ("green") and phyllon ("leaf"). Chlorophyll is an extremely important biomolecule, critical in photosynthesis, which allows plants to obtain energy from light. Chlorophyll absorbs light most strongly in the blue portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, followed by the red portion. However, it is a poor absorber of green and near-green portions of the spectrum; hence the green color of chlorophyll-containing tissues. Chlorophyll was first isolated by Joseph Bienaimé Caventou and Pierre Joseph Pelletier in 1817.

As these unique formulations grew in sales, he started World Organic Corporation in 1969 with his brother Vincent to share them with stores nationwide and continue with private label in his own stores. And World Organic, part of the Licata Enterprise family of companies, is proud to announce its 51st year in business.
