Alleviating Altitude Sickness + My New Favorite Super-Food

One of my friends went to Colorado recently and she had a great time skiing but was SO sick from the altitude. It really affected her and impacted her trip. I recently started drinking chlorophyll daily for health benefits and lo and behold I saw that one of the benefits was it prevents and treats altitude sickness!!! So for all my travelers I hope this helps and for all my health-conscious friends here’s a super-food you may enjoy trying!


 Liquid Chlorophyll Benefits 🌱

Antioxidant / Deodorizer / Anti-inflammatory / Anti-Carcinogen / Anti-Aging

  • Alleviates altitude sickness {increases oxygen & magnesium} 
  • Doctors prescribe for vitality, energy, longevity & disease prevention when taken in liquid form 
  • Alkalinizes the body – therefore prevents damage to DNA 
  • Oxygenation of cells & tissues (has been used in hospitals IV’s to combat pain & swelling) increases quality & quantity of red blood cells 
  • Hormone balancer 
  • Combats signs of aging by stimulating anti-aging enzymes for healthy skin
  • Immunity booster 
  • Free radical neutralizer 
  • Cleanses and rejuvenates your body at a cellular level 
  • Can be used as mouthwash. Minty taste freshens your breath
  • Natural internal deodorizer {makes you smell like cake!}

Packed with vitamins, minerals & essential fatty acids. Also noted to prevent kidney stones, alleviates symptoms of fatigue and insomnia and helps treat fibromyalgia and arthritis among many other ailments.  I actually had to trim this list down because the benefits and treatments just go on and on!

Chlorophyll is available in both powder and pill form but I think the liquid form gives you the most benefits. So far I’ve only tried this brand in the mint flavor but I was so excited about finding this super-food I had to share.chlorophyll

So add a few drops to your beer to make it festive this St. Patrick’s Day! Heck, I’ll use it instead of food coloring for any themed foods I make. Make your own green cocktail. Hey, it also prevents hangovers!

I will say it’s pigment is strong so be careful not to let it drip on your counter top (buy a dropper version to avoid spills) and be prepared to brush your teeth after since your tongue and teeth will look green!

Speaking of brushing teeth…. this sounds weird but I feel like I don’t even have morning breath when taking this every day. I’m kind of a psycho when it comes to brushing my teeth and always brush my teeth when I first wake up – not after a cup of coffee but before I do anything I have to brush my teeth. (I don’t think it’s good to swallow all that bacteria that’s been in your mouth all night.) It’s so strange to wake up feeling like your breath is already a little refreshed? And I do think it makes you exude a sweet smell. Obviously I still wear perfumes and all that but I’ve noticed along with the healthy benefits I’m exuding a sweeter smell naturally before I even apply my deodorant, perfume, etc.

This is definitely one of my staples now for a healthy body and I love all the extra beauty benefits – smelling sweeter is always a plus!

I went to a few health food stores this weekend looking for more chlorophyll and they didn’t have any but a few girls working asked what it does and now I’m pretty sure it’s going to be out of stock everyone soon because everyone said they’re going to start taking it!

And I’m off to Colorado next month so I’ll definitely bring some travel size chlorophyll to combat any altitude sickness! I included this Caudalié beauty elixir spray because it goes hand in hand with dry climates and is amazing for your skin.

  1. I like this brand: ChlorOxygen Chlorophyll Concentrate Dietary Supplement. It is concentrated, you don’t have to use as much, it comes in a dropped so MUCH easier to use and measure and it lasts a long time, doesn’t need to be refrigerated 🙂

  2. Hope you like it. I stumbled upon it looking on Amazon and reading reviews. I had often used the kind you are using now. I’d have to use a funnel to put some in a dropper bottle , otherwise it was a mess. The Chlor-oxygen one got great reviews. You can get it with mint, too.
