Plant pigment: Chlorophyll, the green pigment in plants, responsible for photosynthesis, should not affect your creatinine level. With a level at 1.6, you must consult a nephrologist to see if you can prevent further damage to your kidneys.

Should i take chlorophyll once a day to combat chronic halitosis?

Better choices: There are more effective ways to treat halitosis. It usually comes from the mouth and can be an indication of gum disease or it may be helped by scrapping your tongue. If you have not done so, see a dentist for an evaluation.

I have this chronic halitosis and it's so hard and depressing. How can I get the chlorophyll tablet, or capsule?

Halitosis: Chlorophyll tables are not going to help. Most all of bad breath comes from the oral cavity or mouth. Caries, gum disease and poor oral hygiene are the usual suspects. Some bad great could be caused by sinus problems, tonsillar stones, throat infections and gut problems. I recommend you visit a dentists or periodontist to rule out gum disease, cavities or both.

Does kidney patient can drink chlorophyll water?

Does kidney patient can drink chlorophyll water?

I think so: Chlorophyll, of course, is responsible for the green pigment in all our healthy greens. It has many purported health properties including rebuilding and replenishing red blood cells, being anti-carcinogenic, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. I could find nothing about it being dangerous for kidney patients; it may prevent kidney stones. As with any supplement, also discuss with your doctor.

What is the half-life of chlorophyll found in alfalfa leaves ? Can it be detected in blood test ?

What is the half-life of chlorophyll found in alfalfa leaves ? Can it be detected in blood test ?

Why do you ask?: I've been in lab medicine for 40 years and this is the first I hear of a blood test for chlorophyll. There are some charlatans who promote magic chlorophyll, for example from alfalfa, to help people beat drug tests and otherwise accomplish miracles -- it's all fake and is actually a cruel prank. You're clever enough to have found "HealthTap" -- please be discerning.

What are the health benefits of chlorophyll? I heard's it's good for a healthy diet (green veggies) and improving metabolism, but I'm not sure about the latter.

What are the health benefits of chlorophyll? I heard's it's good for a healthy diet (green veggies) and improving metabolism, but I'm not sure about the latter.

Product of greens: Chlorophyll is what gives plants the green pigment. As for health benefits I don't see any harm in taking it up as green leafy vegetables are high in minerals and nutrients. As for helping metabolism - it helps maintain plant metabolism as it is essential for phtosynthesis. Not sure it has much effects on humans,.

Does liquid chlorophyll prevent vaginal discharge?

Does liquid chlorophyll prevent vaginal discharge?

May be: Vaginal discharge is a complex problem that seems to be related to our individual microbiomes. Microbiome is our bodies' outfit with bacteria that we acquire in our early life from the time that we leave mom's womb (cesarean delivery babies have different microbiomes than naturally delivered babies). A single drug may alleviate but is unlikely to completely prevent vaginal discharge.

My vaginal area smells like onion when i stress sweat and exercise. How much parsley and/or chlorophyll should I be taking?

Vaginal odor: Parsley and chlorophyll are not likely to help. Vaginal odor can be caused by infections such as bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis. If it only smells during and after exercise this this may just be simple normal body odor. Sweaty body parts don't smell good. Get tested.

Oils: The oils we eat are exuded through the pores. Did you ever notice a garlicky smell after a meal with garlic? You can try to look at the oily foods you eat to see if adjusting them helps. However, anti-antiperspirant with Aluminum Chloride seems to be the most effective anti-antiperspirant which helps reduce body odor. Finally, daily soap and water of the areas with apocrine glands is essential

Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?

Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?

Multiple meds: That is a big load of meds. Some, such as Vitamin D, do not need a prescription or blood test. Over-the counter vitamin D is inexpensive and does not need a prescription. Even better it is already in your milk and you don't really need to buy Vitamin D separately. Do you really need all the others? Look up "NuVal" on the web and see what foods are best for you rather than meds.
