Nutritional Greens are "super potent" antioxidants rich in chlorophyll, which stimulates cellular activity, purifies the blood, detoxifies and rejuvenates the entire body. They protect against pollutants and against radiation damage of cells. Chlorophyll comes from the green pigment in plants, just as the life of a person is in the blood, so the life of a plant is in the chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a natural deodorizer and is effective in eliminating bad breath, body odor from perspiration, menstrual odors, and foul smelling urine and stools. In addition, chlorophyll prevents and heals canker sores, alleviates menstrual cramps, and aids in preventing mononucleosis; is known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, and anti-viral properties; aids in alleviating chronic constipation, and helps rebuild the blood after major surgery.    See References.
