What is the impact of chlorophyll on anemia?

I can say from experience that Chlorophyll DEFINETLY works ! 

In 1997 I had a back surgery where an artery was knicked.

Being one of Jehovah's Wittnesses, they were able to find a surgeon within the hospital that would do the surgery without blood.

They used a heart-lung machine and recirculated and filtered the blood that was in my body.

They also used blood expanders such as Ringers-Lactate.

After the artery repair, they gave me infusions of iron.

While this helped, my hemoglobin was not coming up as it should, because I am anemic.

I have a friend who is an herbalist, and she brought me a bottle of liquid Chlorophyll to the hospital and I was allowed to take it.

Before the surgery, my blood count dropped to 2.5.

After the surgery, they were not able to get it above 4, even with the iron infusions.

I took the Chlorophyll for 2 days, and within that time my blood count jumped up to 8 (doubled) !

By then, I was allowed to go home.

I continued to take the liquid Chlorophyll, and by the time I had ny 2 week follow up, my blood count was up to 12.

It continues to stay in the 12-14 area as long as I take the Chlorophyll, which is good, since I am anemic.

I can't say enough good things about liquid Chlorophyll, because it also has many other benefits as well.

I did research on PubMed and on the Internet and found zero studies or valid research linking ingestion of chlorophyll to an increase in RBC or hemoblobin.
