Chlorophyll is to a healthy person as blood is to a vampire. A vampire may be fictional but the analogy is astoundingly accurate on a molecular level. The photo above shows a hemoglobin molecule next to that of chlorophyll. These two molecules are astoundingly similar and perform similar functions in entirely different groups of organisms. One is built around magnesium (Mg) while the other centers around Iron (Fe). Lets compare one primary function of the two.
- Hemoglobin- the iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of all vertebrates (with the exception of the fish family Channichthyidae) as well as the tissues of some invertebrates. Hemoglobin in the blood carries oxygen from the respiratory organs (lungs or gills) to the rest of the body (i.e. the tissues). There it releases the oxygen to permit aerobic respiration to provide energy to power the functions of the organism in the process called metabolism
- Chlorophyll- A main function is to transfer H+ electrons by resonance transfer across thylakoid membranes to assist in energy transfer.
The overall function of chlorophyll itself is actually much more essential as it is crucial to the absorption of light that is then converted into energy but one of its main uses is in the transfer of energy throughout the plant.
In the human body chlorophyll is crucial in regulating blood sugar levels and therefore controlling sugar cravings. It also binds with toxins and carcinogens to remove them from the bodies. These two factors are major reasons why chlorophyll rich foods contribute to both higher energy and pH levels. Another major reason for realizing the vampire analogy is the increased sun susceptibility when consuming high doses of chlorophyll. It makes humans more prone to sun exposure and from my experience creates the ability to see better in low light. A true vampire correlation that is just a coincidence but intriguing nonetheless.
