Chlorophyll-rich foods, such as spirulina, chlorella, and leafy greens, help clear the skin, cleanse the kidneys, and clean and build the blood.
Eating chlorophyll-rich food will help boost immunity and rid the body of unwanted substances.
One study showed that spirulina supplementation resulted in significantly higher iron storage and increased hemoglobin content in the blood of pregnant rats.
Foods and herbs that contain high levels of chlorophyll show pharmacological evidence of cancer prevention, perhaps because pigments in green vegetables such as spinach, kale, broccoli, and lettuce bind with and thus stimulate excretion of cancer-causing chemicals. Even more interesting is a report from one researcher that "Given their exclusive dietary origin, . . . chlorophyll metabolites may represent essential nutrients that coordinate cellular metabolism (through nuclear receptors)."

Vitamin deficiencies have been associated with oral cancer. Spirulina has been found in several studies to inhibit the growth of oral tumors. Prescription For Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A Balch CNC and James F Balch MD, page 259
Spirulina—The blue-green microalgae spirulina sold in natural food stores in America, have been found to be a rich natural source of proteins, carotenoids, and other micronutrients. Experimental studies in animal models have demonstrated an inhibitory effect of spirulina algae on oral cancers. Secret Remedies by Earl Mindell RPh PhD, page 77 Because spirulina is so nutritious, some researchers believe that it can boost immunity. In one study, Japanese investigators found that mice that were fed spirulina had more antibody-producing cells than those deprived of it. And in a study from India, pregnant rats that were fed spirulina gave birth to more pups in one litter than pregnant rats that didn't eat spirulina.
