It has been estimated that the DNA in each cell of our body suffers 10,000 oxidative hits per day, leading to the formation of more than 20 different oxidative DNA lesions.66,67 Human studies show lifestyle and other envi-ronmental influences may profoundly modify outcomes of aging.68,69
It is not just environmental toxins (e.g., cigarette smoke, coal dust, and diesel emission particles) that pose a concern. Foods cooked at high tem-perature also inflict cellular damage. Deep-fried foods along with well-done beef steak, ham-burgers, and bacon cause the formation of gene-mutating heterocyclic amines.70,71 Even so-called healthy foods con-tain small amounts of undesirable substances.72
Chlorophyllin is the modified, water-soluble form of chlorophyll that has been shown to have DNA protective and antioxidant properties, inhibiting DNA adduction.73-78 Chlorophyllin also quenches all major oxygen species and acts to protect mitochondria.79-81 Chlorophyllin also has a role in preventing dietary unavoidable exposure to aflatoxin, a naturally occurring mycotoxin, by reducing its oral bioavailability.82
Chlorophyllin with Zinc softgelss are standardized to provide consistent amounts in each capsule and to contain very low (or no) amounts of free copper. The copper that is a naturally occurring part of chlorophyllin is tightly bound to the chlorophyllin molecule and not easily available to the body. However, because zinc competes with copper for absorption into the bloodstream, 10 mg of zinc is added to each chlorophyllin capsule to guard against any free copper that might be present.
