Can I Take Chloroxygen?

i have polycythemia and am hypoxic. My red blood cells and hematocrit (sp) are high. I smoke and I live in Colorado. Do you have any opinions on Chloroxygen? and Yes! I m cutting down on the smoking and will eventually quit. I m under extreme stress and my MD said to quit totally would not be good for my mental health at this time. 47, 5 6 165. Major depression, polycythemia, hypoxic, perio menopause, fibromyalgia. FUN!

Hi,

It is not advisable while suffering from polycythemia. Chloroxygen (chlorophyll concentrate) is a natural supplement claimed to be effective for blood detoxification, odor control, wound healing, gut health, energy, immune system support and cancer prevention.

However, its efficacy and safety has not been established for the treatment of polycythemia in fact it works by promoting healthy levels of red blood cells, thus raising red blood cell count (hematocrit) which can be serious while suffering from polycythemia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali
