Melanin & Chlorophyll – Similarities and More!

All our lives we’ve been taught that too much sun is bad for us. We’ve been taught about how cancerous it can be. How hot it is. The list goes on. Yet, we are hardly taught the benefits of the sun.

As of recent, I started sun gazing. It is a practice that has been dated back since ancient times. It’s a practice where you stare at the sun during sun set or sunrise. Most people might say “Wait, isn’t that harmful?”. Well, contrary to common belief, if done correctly it actually has great health benefits.

If you think about how plants use the sun then you can further understand how we can also. As children, we were taught about photosynthesis and how plants turn sunlight into food. Green substance in producers that traps light energy from the sun, which is then used to combine carbon dioxide and water into sugars in the process of photosynthesis Chlorophyll is vital for photosynthesis, which helps plants get energy from light.

This same process is essentially the same in how melanin works for us. If you never noticed, which I’m sure you have, only fair toned people get sunburned. That’s because they don’t have enough melanin to protect them from harmful UV rays.

Although these processes are very similar chlorophyll can withstand a higher dosage of UV rays. Plants sit under the sun light all day with minor to no harm. That wouldn’t be the same case for humans.

Why we should have plenty of chlorophyll (green plants) in our diets.

Studies have proven that chlorophyll, in its various forms, has been proven to fight carcinogens in the body and reduce cancer risk. It also helps detoxify the liver and can expedite the healing of wounds. On top of all that, some have attributed improved digestion and weight management to a chlorophyll routine.

Jay Z has written a note saying that he and Beyoncé are challenging themselves to go completely vegan. It’s part of the 22Days Challenge,an initiative started by exercise physiologist (and friend of Jay Z) Marco Borges. Jay writes, “Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please ha.”

They began the challenge today, December 3, one day before Jay’s 44th birthday. He writes:

This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…

Why now?There’s something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day…It just feels right!

So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress … I don’t know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet?Or just a spiritual and physical challenge?We’ll see…

Best of luck and health!
