Chlorophyll pills are sometimes prescribed to people with extreme bad breath or body odor. Some people use chlorophyll for detoxification, which is in vogue with the hip crowd today.

About 30 years ago hunters picked up on this, and started using chlorophyll pills in an effort to help eliminate human odor at the metabolic level. Hunters also chewed gum containing chlorophyll to cut down on breath odor.

I wonder if the green tablets or gum really worked for hunter scent control? Probably not, because you don’t see it or hear about it much anymore. Did any of you ever try the pills or gum?

I never did, it just seemed over the top to me. My scent control has always been simple and remains so to this day. Shower and stay as clean as possible, spray down with Scent Killer Gold each day, work the wind as best you can and hunt like hell.
