Instead of reaching for a pill or a more traditional method of increasing levels, I always try to try a more holistic approach (obviously with my doctors approval) and liquid chlorophyll has been a great help. Talk to your doctor about it!

Other options for a less green mouth:

Mix 1-2 tbsp of fresh chlorophyll in a big glass of water before bedtime.
