How Does Chlorophyll Affect Hypothyroid
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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, . ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
Which probiotic is best for reducing body odor? Eating yogurt, chlorophyll tablets, less meat & more fruits & vegetables has not made any difference.
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 ...Read more

Why does liquid chlorophyll work for genital odor that smells like onions but not capsule form? How does the liquid form work to prevent the odor?
Neither: It is not likely that either chlorophyll will work to prevent genital odor. First step is to be tested for bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis as these can both cause an abnormal odor. ...Read more
It is safe to use a dissolution of pure concentrate Chlorophyll into saline solution as eye drops?
Not good idea: Anything that's not sterile and placed in the eye is setting yourself up for problems in the eye. Best to see your eye doctor and see why you are needing chlorophyll drops to begin with, and use that as a starting point for discussion. This is a better alternative, safer, and makes sense. S/he will be able to meet you where you are, and take care of you at the sae time. Good luck! ...Read more
I have a bad body odor since 8 years ago even after shower. I have try acv, chlorophyll, probiotic, magnesium, zinc, put on baking soda, lemon. Pls help?
Do others notice?: Is it "fishy"? Certain genetic conditions can cause this. You should see a doctor if you have not already. You're doing all the right things already. If no one else notices it (ask your mother), then may not be worth worrying about. ...Read more
Can a person with cardio, high blood pressure, diabetic and kidney problems use chlorophyll plus guarana?
Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?
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. ...Read more

It is variable: The way hypothyroid persons feels is quite variable. Some feel very tired with small degrees of hypothyroidism, but I have seen people who were deeply hypothyroid by blood tests, feeling nothing at all. When hypothyroidism is significant in a young person, (tsh>10) treatment is recommended even if the patient feels well, because it can cause high cholesterol and possibly heart disease. ...Read more
