Research states that Chlorophyllin is a chemical that is made from chlorophyll. It refers to any one group of closely related water-soluble salts that are semi-synthetic derivatives of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is found in green leafy vegetables, especially high in spinach. People take it for controlling body, fecal, and urine odors as well as for treating constipation and flatulence.
Sodium is both a mineral and an electrolyte. It helps keep the water and electrolyte balance of the body. Sodium is also important in how nerves and muscles work. Small amounts of sodium are lost through the skin when sweating and are also passed through urine.
Note that this is not a vegetarian nor vegan capsule as it contains gelatin. The product contains soy which needs to be noted if you are allergic to it.
There are 90 softgels in this bottle. There is also no added sugar.
Adults and children who are aged 12 and over are to take 2 softgels 1-2 times daily. If the odor persists, an additional 2 softgels may be taken. It is not recommended to exceed 6 softgels per day. If it is to be used for children that are under 12 years of age a healthcare physician needs to be consulted first.

Nature’s Way Chlorofresh Review – The Bottom Line
Nature’s Way seems to have a good reputation in the health industry business and has an Orthodox Union Kosher Certification as well as an Islamic Food And Nutrition Council Of America Halal Certification which is good to see. The only thing that bothered us with this specific product was that there was not enough information stated on or about the product. Although it states that it reduces digestive tract disorders, it does not mention anything about reducing body or breath odors.
