good afternoon, can you please tell me what are benefits and risks of drinking one or 2 glasses of chlorophyll per day?

I put it in a glass of water and drink.
Hello, this is Dr. E. Greetings from New York! I'm so glad you posted your question for me to answer, and I aim to provide you with accurate info

Liquid chlorophyll has many health benefits. Scientist Offen Krantz found that chlorophyll is helpful for stomach ulcers. Nutritionist Bernard Jensen reported that people who took chlorophyll had a higher blood count and generally better health. Liquid chlorophyll is said to detoxify the body, strengthen the immune system, help purify blood, cleanse the digestive tract and encourage cell production and regeneration. It is often used to relieve mild constipation, alleviate pain from stomach ulcers and keep the immune system strong.

While there is little danger in using liquid chlorophyll supplements, there can be side effects. Some people experience green-colored urine or a black or yellow tongue after prolonged use of chlorophyll. If you use it on a cut as an antiseptic, you may itch temporarily. Some people may experience diarrhea, and chlorophyllin may cause a fecal blood culture to show a false positive.
