Default Who Takes Chlorophyll for Hair Growth?

A few years ago, I used to take chlorophyll supplements (along with my iron supplements) to help increase my red blood cells. I don’t know why I stopped but my hair really seemed to be abundant in those days. I’ve learned that cholorphyll is the “blood” of plants and it looks almost exactly like our red blood cells (except it’s green of course) and it is totally compatible with our blood. I bought some liquid chlorophyll the other day, the same brand I used to get in capsule form (World Organic), and I just took one tablespoon (100 mg)in a glass of water. I've been taking spirulina for a long time, which also has chlorophyll, about 30 mg for every 3 g of spirulina. There are many other benefits too for chlorophyll.

What have been your hair results with chlorophyll?

I don't take chlorphyll but I am interested in taking spirulina. What are your results from taking it-the spirulina I mean?

Spirulina gives me a lot of energy because it is a "live" food. I think the Beta Carotene (4,000 IU per serving) really helps my hair and skin like carrot juice does and my hair has been thick and shiny for years, even when I was unknowingly abusing it. They say we as humanity can survive from eating Spirulina alone.

Brittanynic16 -It is a food (blue-green algae) more than a supplement. I love spirulina it has all the vitamins and minerals we need to sustain life. And it's so great for our hair. Earthrise is the brand of Spirlina I use. Here is a link to some info about it: http://www.spirulina.com/SPBSpirulina.html

I had taken liquid chlorophyll by Nature's Sunshine for 6 months. I do not think that the chlorophyll had made any effect with my hair growth. It did conquer mouth odors though.

For me (I am anemic) I could feel the difference in energy from taking chlorophyll (on top of the spirulina I take daily) and I believe this is due to my red blood cells increasing. I took some last night for the first time in a few years and I feel the difference already. In this way, I get more nourishment for the growth of my hair, like I do with my iron but even more so and in a different way than iron. Chlorophyll has lots of benefits including what you said Ms Jadu about mouth odors (it eliminates all body odors) but increasing my red blood cells and enriching my blood is important for our hair growth.

Britannynic16 - In the past, I wasn't focusing on growing out my hair. I just took it to build up my red blood cells, which worked very well. Because I had more red blood cells, my scalp was nourished more and my hair was growing well, looked thicker too. I didn't take care of my hairthen so I can't tell you how it works in comparison to biotin. Now that I'm growing out my hair, I can monitor the results from chlorophyll and make good comparisons. I guess I'll know in a month or so.

I am interested in taking chlorophyll now since it increases red blood cells...but I always thought it was poisonous...for example you are supposed to peel all the green away from your potatoes (before cooking). I will have to research this more...

But that's like saying all green veggies are poisonous. Chlorophyll is what makes plants green.

Well, I'm not saying green vegetables are poisonous..I was saying that the green under the potato peeling was poisonous..that's chlorphyll. I always heard that...I have tasted potatoes with it still on and it does taste a little potent [if that makes sense]. So I was surprised to notice that you can actually take a supplement. If it makes more red blood cells then I'm all for it..only I want to research it more or maybe consult a doctor first.

HEY ISIS
I have been taking spirulina for the last three weeks and I
am very impressed I have more engery and I like that it is
a good protein source also.
Do you still take a multivitamin with spirulina.

Labett - I don't take a multivitamin at all. Maybe I should but I've been doing ok with certain vitamins and minerals as well as eating a good, healthy diet and getting most of my vitamins from my food. Spirulina is a food and it's a main part of my protein and B-12 source (I still supplement with B-12). I take Spirulina daily no matter what else I eat or take.
