Dosing

Adults (18 years and older)

There is no proven effective dose for chlorophyll. For bad breath, 100 milligrams has been taken two or three times daily. For colostomy odor, 75 milligrams three times daily for up to 100- 200 milligrams daily in divided doses has been used. 300 milligrams daily has been used if odor was still not controlled. 1- 2 tablets of 100 milligrams have been placed in the empty pouch each time it is reused or changed in a patient who has had an ostomy. For protection from aflatoxins, chlorophyllin 100 milligrams three times daily for four months has been studied. For pancreatitis, an infusion of 5- 20 milligrams water- soluble chlorophyll- a daily for one to two weeks followed by intermittent administration thereafter has been used. For pneumonia, infusion of 0.25% chlorophyllypt solution in physiological sodium chloride solution administered by intravenous drip has been studied.

Theoretical evidence suggests chlorophyll may aid the growth of new tissue when applied topically (on the skin) for burns and wounds.

Children (younger than 18 years)

There is no proven effective dose for chlorophyll in children.
