Liquid Chlorophyll Side Effects
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

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

Colonoscopy: There are many options for bowel preparation to choose from. Some of these options are much smaller in volume and also there is pill form. You should discuss your concerns with your GI physician to determine the best options for you. There are other options beside colonoscopy, but none of the other ones will have therapeutic benefits (most of the other ones are diagnostic). Again, discuss! ...Read more

Expired bandage: Best not to use it. Expiration dates on products protect the public. It may not be sterile at this point and the chemicals that are supposed to form a polymer suspended in a solvent may have precipitated or become toxic with time.

No side effects: I train 5 times a week. Trainer in the past. Drink a lotof water. Your body produce enough carnitine from your nutrition (red meat, fish, poultry and milk). Play a critical role for energy production at mitochondrial level. I have not seen scientific evidence proven extra carnitine, directly or indirectly, support increase muscle mass. Use acetyl L-carnitine if you still want to use it. ...Read more

What's safer with less side effects suprep or golytely (polyethylene glycol) in my opinion golytely (polyethylene glycol) is but requires a lot more of liquids vs suprep with worse side effects?
Equal: If taken properly they are equally safe. Suprep is easier to take because the volume is less. Given the large volume required for Golytely (polyethylene glycol) I rarely recommend it, except in hospitalized patients since it is more available. Both should be taken in split doses, both the evening before and about 4 hrs before the procedure for best results. ...Read more
I will start taking liquid chlorophyl to help with my colitis and stomach problems. Does it affect the effectiveness of my birth control?
Don't waste UR money: I've heard of chlorophyll (chlorella, kyo-green, green magma) being used by the japanese to "help speed the cleansing of the bloodstream and to protect against the effects of uv radiation." I don't endorse its use for either the above claims, or your expectation that chlorophyll will "help colitis and stomach problems." don't waste your money and health. Ask your doctor for real medicine please. ...Read more
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
Chlorophyll has: Little evidence to support its use but some people claim it helps. Guarana contains caffeine and some alkaloids that may reduce hunger. Too much guarana may be harmful. Chlorophyll is in all leafy green plants and you will get plenty from consuming spinach, green beans, parsley and other leafy greens. Best regards for good health. ...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

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

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

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 could cause severe allergic reactions, (swelling of lips and tongue, or throat closure, difficulty breathing) old people need it more than young. Athletes use it. ...Read more
Unknown: All meds & supplements have potential side effects, and usually it's a pretty long list of potential but uncommon side effects. Side effects are not always dose dependent, so even 1 dose can sometimes cause. Just b/c it's a supplement doesn't mean no risk. I discuss w/ my pts about doing a risk-benefit analysis before starting a new tx. ...Read more
