An internal deodorant is a substance that is ingested to help neutralize odors emanating from the body. These deodorants generally come in the form of pills, which often come coated so that they are easy to swallow. In most cases, they are made of chlorophyll, and they can be used by both men and women.
Using an internal deodorant can help stave off bad odors coming from the body, including the feet, mouth, and underarm area. Flatulence, perspiration, and urinary, vaginal, and menstrual odors also can be neutralized by using this product. Besides combating embarrassing body odors, these deodorants can have the practical use of helping hunters mask their natural, human scents. This can make hunting easier because hunters can remain undetected by their prey.
Chlorophyll is the ingredient that works to neutralize bad odors, usually in the form of chlorophyll copper. This type of chlorophyll can be categorized as being at least partially synthetic or manufactured. Should consumers desire products with all-natural ingredients, they should look for a deodorant that contains chlorophyll derived from alfalfa, spirulina, barley grass, wheat grass, or other plants.
Internal deodorants also come in liquid form, which can be more useful for those who have trouble swallowing pills. Liquid chlorophyll also can be gargled as a way to relieve throat irritations. It can come with extra flavorings to make it palatable.
Ingesting chlorophyll can have many other benefits aside from odor neutralization. Chlorophyll can help the body boost its immunity, improve energy, aid in digestion, remove toxins, and prevent anemia. It also can keep the correct alkaline and acid ratio in the body; an overload of acid can lead to an increase of bacteria, viruses and degenerative diseases.
Chlorophyll, which is found in wheatgrass juice, is sometimes used to help treat body odor.
This product, in either pill form or liquid form, can be found in health food stores or online. Those searching the Internet for this type of deodorant can often find it on websites where other natural, healthy products are sold.
Internal deodorants are more effective when they are taken daily. Usually, users will be directed to take one pill in the morning and one at night, though consumers can take up to three pills a day if needed. Users should take only the number of pills necessary to control body odor, and they can take as many as 14 days to work. Consumers should discontinue using the pills if cramps or diarrhea develop.
