6 posts in this topic

hello everyone. Im not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but I'll try anyway.

does anyone take chlorophyll, and if so, how/why does it help? my fiance is taking it (he's not gluten-free) and swears by it. he's constantly telling me to take it. Im not sure what to do. what are the benefits/side effects, if any, for people with celiac disease?

any info/insight?

thanks!!!

Chlorophyll should definitely be gluten-free as it is literally the green pigment which you find in a plant's leaves. Am not sure about the effects though, sorry.

Hi! I have a friend who has chronic IBS and has tendonitis in her hand. When she gets stressed & her IBS is really bad, her hand swells up so much that she can't use it. THis can be problematic for someone who SEWS for a living!! SO-- when it's really bad she takes Chlorophyll so that she can alleviate the swelling & function somewhat normally at work. She said it doesn't upset her stomach & works just as well as Benedryl which makes her far too sleepy. I know IBS and celiac are different but if it doesn't cause her any irritation & it doesn't have any gluten in it, then it should be safe for you as well.

Good luck to you.

This is great to know. I'm an artist & sometimes have awful wrist pain that makes it hard to work. I'm guessing chlorophyll would be very good for you-- parsley is full of it, & that's calming to the digestion, at least in my experience. (That's one reason it's a tradition to put a sprig on the plate-- it's also good for sweetening the breath!)

Thanks for the info! I think I'll head for the garden & munch some parsley!

thank u for the input!!!

while were on the subject here of taking digestive enzymes to control an upset stomache, does anyone know anything about Freedas vitamins....one called "parvenzyme"???? And, what exactly is it good for? does it work? i already take a few other freeda vitamins, like the multi so I know theyre safe.

any info would be great!!!!!

I take chlorophyl and the stuff I get is from alfalfa. I wouldn't trust it from gluten sources. That's just me. You can show me the science, but if I have a choice, I'll go alfalfa. It's supposed to help with body smells, digestion, alkalizing, and some other things. Despite my good diet, I seem to get acidic so I use it for that.

Also, my cat (not the one in my av) loves to chew grass, but she no longer has teeth (all surgically removed - she is actually so much happier now) and so we put some in her water and that seems to reduce her urge to try to chew grass.
