Did you know you lose about 2.4 million red blood cells every second of your life? That’s about 25 trillion red blood cells every 120 days, which your body must replenish in order to keep you alive.^ Plants contain a pigment called chlorophyll, which is almost identical in structure to hemoglobin, a central part of red blood cell structure.*
Today, eat more green vegetables to replenish the huge loss of red blood cells you’ll experience. Making sure that a large part of your plate is green at each meal contributes to healthy body, every day!
Express your love today!
