PIOG- Liquid Chlorophyll

Posted by on Jan. 18, 2013 at 3:02 PM

 Does anyone have any advice on how to make it more bearable? I find the flavor of the unflavored to be absolutely unbearable. It makes me gag so bad I'm afraid I will vomit. There is no way I can drink an 8 oz glass of water with 1 tbsp in it.

I was told to start the supplement by my midwife. I don't mind eating my veggies. I LOVE eating raw veggies, I just don't get enough in my life.

 

Any ways to trick yourself into taking it?

I took the pills.  Is she concerned with your platelets?

Not sure. She looked at my food journal for a week and told me to start supplementing.

I don't do the liquid chlorophyll with water, I just squirt it int he back of my mouth then chase with water.  I am assuming she is having you do it to boost your vit k... ask if you can take alfalfa instead.

I did a shot today and then chugged a whole glass of water and the second I exhaled I was gagging over the sink. It wasn't as intense as mixing it with water, but still bad enough to feel like a whiny kid who is scared to take meds.

I will have to ask because I just really can't handle the taste!

Ask about taking a supplement like spirulina or chlorella.  You can get them in pill form.

can you chase it with orange juice? that's how i use to have to take my prenatals because of the taste. the orange juice kinda drowned out the flavor.

Do you ever use Emergen-C packets (or something similar)?


I held my nose and chugged it...
GL!

I do, but I have found that those are not as bad. LOL still disgusting but I can handle it without getting goosebumps and gagging and such. I think I might try doing a flavored chaser such as OJ.
