I have/do. They surely seem to work, at least for me. After a few days, you can almost stop using deodorant. Body odor goes away. Try it, really nothing to loose. There are a few commercial products out there for hunting. One is called Ghost Scent , which I've tried.
Hey, I found this while researching the use of chlorophyll. Thought you might find it interesting.
Chlorophyll One or two chlorophyll tablets or chlorophyll liquid taken with each meal may also help, as chlorophyll is a great deodorizer.
Magnesium Take magnesium supplements or augment your diet with food sources high in this important mineral. Between 200-500 mg of magnesium have been recommended. You will have to try different doses until you get the amounts that are right for your body.
Vitamins A high-potency B vitamin (50 mg or higher), when combined with magnesium, will help reduce certain secretions that can be a cause of odor. Make sure you are getting 100 mg of PABA and 100 mg of B6.
Zinc If you have body odor, try taking zinc tablets. Zinc, plus magnesium, will help balance your body's metabolism and reduce the cause of bad odor. Studies have shown that taking 30 to 50 mg daily will dramatically reduce certain body odors, although you may need less. Zinc may also reduce perspiration and sweaty feet. However, it is wise to go above 15 mg only with a doctor's supervision as zinc may interfere with the absorption of copper, another essential trace mineral.
I've been using the product since '97. At an outdoor function I had dinner with one of the family members who created Ghost Scent. The product is no longer distributed under Ghost Scent, but now Nullo. It was originally designed as an internal deoderant tablet for nurisng home patients, etc. It's my understanding that the company started getting orders from young bowhunters. After asking them why they were taking it they decided to market it to hunters under Ghost Scent. More info at www.nullo.com It works for me. Just remember not to over do it or you may have some cramping, not what you want while on stand. I usually start taking it about 2 weeks before my "serious" bowhunts.
