You should consider adding pure liquid chlorophyll to the diet of your goldfish. Why? Quite simply there are some major similarities in the biological make-up of goldfish and that of humans. For this reason they definitely require similar nutrients for growth. And most importantly, they share the need for chlorophyll.
Just as other living creatures depend on chlorophyll for growth, so does your goldfish. If your pond doesn’t have algae and you don’t intend to grow any, you really need to consider adding chlorophyll to the diet of your fish to keep them healthy.
Why is Chlorophyll so important?
It’s the green pigment present in all green plants. It’s responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis is the process by which plants that have chlorophyll utilize sunlight to manufacture food from water and carbon dioxide, generating oxygen as a by product.
Green plants synthesize their nutrition from the elements in their surroundings through photosynthesis.
In humans chlorophyll is known to sabotage unfriendly bacteria while sparing friendly bacteria. Additionally chlorophyll scavenges free radicals and oxygen reactive species that are known to cause cancer. It’s rich in essential nutrients like iron and vitamins like E and C, therefore promoting good health and helping to slow the aging process.
Importantly it’s also known to improve the immune system, fight infections and reduce cholesterol levels. It’s an antioxidant and a source of essential amino acids and proteins.
Where does the chlorophyll come from?
In fish ponds for example, chlorophyll is derived from algae and other plants that provide this all-important green matter. If there isn’t enough plant life in the pond to provide this nourishing substance for the goldfish, it’s recommended that you add pure liquid chlorophyll to the diet of your goldfish.
If you intend to use it in a pond use only the pure version and only mint is allowed as an additive. Click on this link for more fish pond information
