Copper Chlorophyllin is a semi synthetic mixture of
water soluble sodium copper salts derived from cholorophyll. They are tight
molecular complexes that have been useful in fighting various acrcinogenic
diseases and therefore are greatly preferred substances.
Vegetables containing high amounts of cholorophyllin include:
- Bell peppers
- Brussels sprouts
- Green cabbage
It is subjected to a process where the magnesium present in its centre is
removed (by placing it in an acid bath) and replaces with copper. Although
the content of different copper chlorophyllin may vary, two compounds
commonly found in commercial mixtures are trisodium copper chlorine E6 and
disodium copper chlorine E4.
