I don’t know what took me so long, but I am an official convert to chlorophyll. Yes, it’s the stuff that makes green vegetables green and thus it’s completely amazing for you. It all started when we found out that my daughter’s colon was so inflamed she was experiencing all the symptoms of colitis at the age of five. In addition to the well-advised supplements prescribed by our doctor, I did a ton of research on my own and found out that chlorophyll is amazing for not only colitis sufferers, but for pretty much everyone with blood running through their veins.

Even better if the chocolate has a surprise creamy filling that is totally delicious.
