Chlorophyll 叶绿素 ...

Chlorophyll (also chlorophyl
is a green pigment found in almost all plants, algae, and cyanobacteria.


Its name is derived from the Greek χλωρός (chloros "green") and φύλλον (phyllon "leaf").



Chlorophyll absorbs light most strongly in the blue portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, followed by the red portion. However, it is a poor absorber of green and near-green portions of the spectrum, hence the green color of chlorophyll-containing tissues.



Chlorophyll is consumed by people for its nutritional benefits. It has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant properties and may help cuts and wounds heal more quickly. Chlorophyll has vitamins A, C and E, all antioxidants that help scavenge free radical cells that can oxidize and create cell or tissue death.Chlorophyll is vital for photosynthesis.




Chlorophyll is essential to the process of photosynthesis, 
which allows plants to obtain energy from light. It is often called the building block of life. 
Without chlorophyll there is no life.
