I'm glad you are happy taking chlorophyll and that it works for you.
I tried this a while back and it gave me severe gastric distress--I had to run for the nearest bathroom. I could never take it long enough to see if it helped with odor. I'm tempted to try the chlorophyll again, it's in a cabinet somewhere.

MissChris,
I started taking chlorophyll after reading this thread. I only take one pill a day. The instructions advise to take 2 but because I have read about the gastric problems that too much can cause I decided to start with one. I can notice a big difference already.
Try decreasing your dosage.

rednpurple: Thanks for your suggestion, but mine comes in capsules and I took a single capsule only. If it were a pill I could divide it but I can't do that with a capsule. Is there a brand you know of that comes in pill/tablet form?
Edited: I had a senior moment. I looked at my bottle and it is an elongated tablet, not a capsule. I will divide it and try again. Thanks for suggesting this! :-D

Jujube, I am so happy to hear of your success! I started taking it on vacation in Hawaii years ago...Body Mint was the product name. Later, I heard that plain chlorophyl did the same thing less expensively. I am spoiled! I love smelling fresh all the time.
Currently I am taking a tablet called Sunny Green I got at Mothers Market, but I have gotten tablets from iherb before.

i just got plain chlorophyll 600 mg from a local health food store.....the pills are from alfalfa and smell like the food i used to feed my guinea pigs!! lol, but i just swallow it really quick and hold my nose, blech, i hate taking capsules of any kind.....with juice or ice tea and i am good for the day. i actually think i am feeling other positive results having nothing to do with odor issues. I am very thankful to u and the other ladies recommending this!

Love me, love my cats:)

MissChris,
I found this description on a bottle of generic chlorophyll from a search on Google.
Chlorophyll Compressed Tablets -
Cleanse from the inside, out
Delivers potent antioxidant protection and soothes the gastrointestinal system
Convenient capsules combine a powerful 3 mg of chlorophyll with 410 mg of alfalfa leaves. The beneficial properties of chlorophyll go far beyond its success as a system cleanser and deodorizer. The green plant pigment that harnesses the sun's energy during photosynthesis, chlorophyll also has antioxidant properties and soothes the gastrointestinal system. Cleanse from the inside out with our organic chlorophyll.

Since it's described as a "system cleanser", that might be why you had a problem with it. I can't take Magnesium tablets because it has that type of effect on me.

I think its a "system cleanser" in the sense of removing toxins and carcinogens. If you google Life Extension Magazine and search chlorophyllin you will see lots of research. One comment:
"But that's not all chlorophyllin can do. Studies show that in addition to being a powerful antioxidant, chlorophyllin can actually latch onto carcinogens such as heterocyclic amines and prevent them from binding to DNA"

Does this work on men also?

Yes, the original Body Mint was invented by a man, a runner in Hawaii who wanted to cover the sweat smell.

Jujube,
Is the chlorophyll working for you? I'm having the issue you described, and am thinking of trying it! If so, any tummy upset?
Still using the Dial soap?
Thanks!
:)

I can't find any chlorophyll tablets in my area. I've shopped the expensive health food store, the grocery stores, Wal-Mart, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens. Weird. Even my vitamin catalog only has 1 form and no information as to what type of chlorophyll it is. Is there some type of copper in yours or is it pure chlorophyll from a green source?

I bought mine at The Vitamin Shoppe as there is one near me. I looked at a GNC store and they only had liquid chlorophyll and a very low dose capsule.
You can purchase chlorophyll at lots of online sites: Amazon, iherb, Vitacost, Vitamin Shoppe to name a few.

omg, it is totally fantastic and I love my dial soap:) the problem is that i gag when i take the chlorophyll because theyre huge capsules.....so i am going to go back to the store and buy the lower dosage caplets...i only take it a couple times a week now and i'm good to go! i just went to a very small health food store in my area and they had two types in capsule or caplet and they also had liquid. You can order it on alot of sites on the web.

Love me, love my cats:)

Why do the bottles that have 60mg say to only take one a day and not to exceed that? The 60mg is not working. Why do they make higher mg's if your not supposed to take more than 60mg a day?

Good question. I need to research what the "maximum" should be--I've seen a few brands that listed 200 or 300 mg, so I'm wondering if that's it? Although Jujube, the original poster is taking 600...

Hey girls....my original bottle that i purchased was 600 mg...and it was so big and i gagged everytime i took it so i switched to a 100 mg caplet and i am taking just two a day. I dont think u can overdose on chlorophyll, it is from alfalfa and green veggies......but i do not think over 200 mg is necessary

Love me, love my cats:)

nunu4u12672054968651 PostsRegistered 9/22/2006
60 mg is not a big dose! The original Body Mints I took were 100 mg each, recommended dose twice a day. I found through experimentation that I could get buy on one a day. People might vary on that according to body size and other factors.

I got a bottle at GNC and its called Triple chlorophyll, but on the back it says 60mg of Chlorophyll Complex and not to exceed one tablet a day. Is this different than the other bottles? I am afraid to give my husband three of these a day.
