Hemoglobin vs Chlorophyll
Hemoglobin and Chlorophyll have similar structures. The main difference is that hemoglobin is built around iron (Fe), where as chlorophyll is built around magnesium, (Mg). The primary function for hemoglobin is to transport oxygen from the lungs to other parts of the body. Hemoglobin is composed of four elements- carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. All four are organized around iron. Chlorophyll is composed of the same elements, which are organized around magnesium.
In sickle cell anemia, the abnormal hemoglobin (Hemoglobin-S) sticks together when it gives up its oxygen to the tissues. These clumps cause red blood cells to become stiff and shaped like a sickle.
Chlorophyll helps do the job of hemoglobin when ingested. Promote the health of circulation, cleanse the body, increase the number of red blood cells and therefore increase oxygen throughout the body, in other words, Chlorophyll helps build hemoglobin. This is exactly what our sickle cell babies and others need, to build hemoglobin!
In 2006, The Hospital For Sick Children located in Toronto Canada started a clinical trial regarding Magnesium and sickle cell kids.
