But there are some key factors to consider with taking supplements and this also applies to liquid chlorophyll.
What is Chlorophyll?
We all know what chlorophyll is - it is the green pigment compound that gives plants their green color and helps plants convert sunlight and water into energy. There are two types of chlorophyll - chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b. Anytime you eat any green vegetable, it means it has chlorophyll in it.
Chlorophyll can be sourced from green plants but liquid chlorophyll is 'sourced' in a different way.
What is Liquid Chlorophyll?
Liquid chlorophyll is a water-soluble form of chlorophyll and is generally what is called as chlorophyllin. Liquid chlorophyll is a man-made form of chlorophyll called chlorophyllin. So, when you see chlorophyllin in the ingredients list, it is highly likely it is synthetic and man-made in the lab.
The second way that liquid chlorophyll is made is by using a mixture of sodium copper salts derived from chlorophyll - sodium copper chlorophyllin (SCC).
Chlorophyllin binds to copper and this is why you will see liquid chlorophyll have a good amount of copper listed in the ingredients section. So, in a nutshell, all that liquid chlorophyll is chlorophyllin - either man-made or derived from sodium copper chlorophyllin (SCC).
Quick History of Liquid Chlorophyll -
Articles cite that there are reports from the 1980s of patients who had incontinence and were given liquid chlorophyll and that it seemed to help reduce the odor.
Also, in the 1940s, The American Journal of Surgery reported that patients were given chlorophyll derivatives in an army hospital - all to stop the bad odor from wounds, hence its reputation as a body and wound odor eliminating supplement.
People started taking it and with the rise of the internet, people started posting videos of liquid chlorophyll's benefits - note that not much research is done on liquid chlorophyll but it is still worth looking at its purported benefits.

How To Take? -
Start slowly with liquid chlorophyll as it might upset your stomach or cause nausea and vomiting if you take too much in the beginning. It might also create Herxheimer reaction - symptoms from detoxification of the body. Start with just a few drops in a glass of water or juice and gradually increase your dose.
Any Risks or Precautions?
Liquid chlorophyll has been taken by humans for at least 50 years and is considered very safe - it is just like green vegetables that you have been taking since you were born so you can safely take it without any worries or fears.
However, liquid chlorophyll is still a supplement and not a real vegetable and just like with any supplement, prolonged or continued use is not considered good and the same goes for liquid chlorophyll. It is a supplement after all and you are far better off increasing your green vegetables intake to boost your chlorophyll in the body rather than relying on a supplement that comes in a plastic bottle, manufactured far away from Nature and can cause nausea, stomach upsets or (if prolonged use) may cause photosensitization (condition where your skin reacts more to the sunlight and becomes more sensitive to it) in some people.
Another thing to note is that liquid chlorophyll is high in copper so people who have high amounts of copper already in their body should consult their doctor before taking liquid chlorophyll.
Another mild effect is that it can cause urine and stools to turn to green color.
