Within the world of social media, I came across a “green drink” that has become a trend and is said to be the savior of the skin, since they say it clears the skin and fights acne.

It is best absorbed into the body when ingested with some fat and is most abundant in fresh and raw vegetables. ” If you want to get your daily dose of chlorophyll, it is important that you know that when cooking these vegetables, they lose a large percentage of chlorophyll, so it is better to take them or eat them raw or in supplement form.
DOES CHLOROPHYLL HAVE BENEFITS TO THE SKIN?
Mona Gohara, Specialist in Dermatology says: “It’s one of those wait and see situations. While theoretically it could help, there is currently no science to back it up.

Although there is no clear answer yet, if drinking chlorophyll water makes you feel good, there is no reason to give up the famous green drink.
