Chlorophyllin Copper Complex
The active ingredient of Nullo is a concentrated water soluble form of chlorophyll called chlorophyllin copper complex derived from naturally obtained chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is the pigment that gives plants their green color and is used by plants to convert sunlight into food through photosynthesis. The basic structure of chlorophyll is a porphyrin ring which has a central atom of magnesium. The synthesis of chlorophyllin copper complex from native chlorophyll involves supplanting the magnesium atom at the center of the ring with copper.
Chlorophyllin copper complex is an isolate derived from natural sources. Unlike native plant chlorophyll, chlorophyllin copper complex is a water-soluble molecule. Water solubility is believed to enhance the bioavailability of chlorophyll.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published a final monograph pertaining to the use of chlorophyllin copper complex as a drug.
In the context of FDA regulation, monographs represent published standards by which the use of one or more substances is authorized. The FDA monograph for drugs with the active ingredient chlorophyllin copper complex is titled “Deodorant Drug Products for Internal Use.” This monograph describes chlorophyllin copper complex as “generally recognized as safe and effective”, and describes the following uses: (i) “An aid to reduce odor from a colostomy or ileostomy.'' (ii) “An aid to reduce fecal odor due to incontinence.'' Below is a link to the FDA monograph for chlorophyllin copper complex. We provide this link for information purposes only and specifically refrain from making claims regarding this finding by the FDA because we do not want to restrict the use of Nullo to the limited purposes this monograph describes.
The “PDR for Nutritional Supplements” (2nd Edition – 2008) is a physicians desk reference for objective, scientific information on nutritional supplements. This volume describes the beneficial attributes of water soluble chlorophyll (chlorophyllin) for its "deodorizing activity.” as " …an aid to reduce odor from a colostomy or ileostomy, and also as an aid to reduce fecal odor due to incontinence.”, and further states that chlorophyllin in the form of topical ointments is “…used to reduce malodors in wounds and surface ulcers.” Also contained in this reference work is the statement that some experimental work has shown that chlorophyllin may have cancer fighting properties as it has demonstrated, in some studies “…significant inhibition of several mutagens, including cigarette smoke, coal dust, and diesel emission particles.”, and “…proved a more effective anti-mutagen than retinol, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E.” Below is a library stock search link for this volume to assist you should you desire the opportunity to read the entire article directly from this resource. We provide this link for information purposes only and specifically refrain from making claims regarding these findings because we believe that additional study is required before the antioxidant / anti-mutagenic / cancer fighting properties of chlorophyllin, such as they may be, could be considered to be well understood.
Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
