Is there any danger of taking liquid chlorophyll to build up blood count for an extended period of time?

0 like 0 dislike
My brother had a blood count down to around 3 and started taking liquil clorophyll, 2 tea spoons daily in water, along with b2 and b12 and after several months his count was back to normal.  He is now concerned if continued use of the clorophyll is wise or not.,

I checked a couple of popular brands of liquid chlorophyll.  They are prepared as copper salts.example -- http://www.vitacost.com/vitacost-liquid-chlorophyll

I suppose there would be a tiny chance of copper toxicity with long term use at huge dose.

Probably better to eat spinach, kale, etc or have occasional shot of wheat grass juice.  Chlorella tabs fine too.

This is my personal opinion.
