Chlorophyll for a Hangover?
Updated: Feb 26, 2020
The most interesting find of the week: Chlorophyll for a hangover! https://www.mydomaine.com/easy-hangover-cures.
The internet seems to have found yet another potential use for chlorophyll. With the end of Dry January upon us, this seems like timely information.
The article lists a number of homeopathic hangover remedies, including staying hydrated, taking a vitamin-B supplement, and adding essential oils to your shower. All of those sound pretty familiar, but consuming chlorophyll was a new suggestion, and one that was novel to us.
We’re still on the hunt for a research study directly linking the use of chlorophyll as a cure for hangovers and as a potential detox mechanism, but there have been studies performed on the consumption of chlorophyll and its effects on liver and stomach health.
One animal study from the journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology linked chlorophyll to a reduction in the incidence of liver and stomach tumors. They found that chlorophyll concentrations encountered in chlorophyll-rich green vegetables showed a reduction in liver tumors by 29 to 64 percent and stomach tumors by 24 to 45 percent.
