How to Add Chlorophyll Shots to Your Day

Chlorophyll makes plants green and keeps you feeling clean. Read how to incorporate this powerful plant-based supplement into your busy life without even noticing.

We all know that our health and happiness go hand in hand. But between the hustle and bustle of work and personal responsibilities, it feels impossible to squeeze in as much self-care as we want.

Here’s the thing: caring for your health doesn’t have to take any time out of your day. Just take a shot in the dark… of chlorophyll, that is!

Chlorophyll hydration shots are one of the easiest, fastest, and most beneficial ways to give yourself a boost of H2O and gain the energy for your day.

Here’s how to incorporate a healthy dosage into the busiest of schedules:

What Are Chlorophyll Shots?

If you remember taking sixth-grade biology, you probably recognize chlorophyll from the lessons on photosynthesis and sunlight. Chlorophyll is the pigment in plants that gives them their green color.

In fact, chlorophyll is available in all green plants. So next time you eat a hearty salad of green vegetables (kale and broccoli, anyone?), you can feel good knowing you’re getting some similar benefits.

It’s an essential component in plants, and it also has potential health benefits for us. Not only does it help give a boost of hydration in the same way it can for plants, but it’s also been known to have antioxidant benefits. 

Pressed's chlorophyll shots are made from mulberry leaves, and are combined with some water and a hint of lemon and copper salts. You’ve got yourself a powerful, natural chlorophyll enhancement to your day-to-day routine.

Chlorophyll is a mean green machine that can help you feel nice and clean! And the best part is that chlorophyll supplements are super easy to add to your busy workday.

How To Use Chlorophyll Shots

Liquid chlorophyll is a versatile supplement that has a number of different uses. As the name implies, you can take these as a straight shot. You can also drop it into about 32 ounces of water to get a nice, subtle “green tea” taste. This might be more pleasant for people who are newer to juice cleanses, as this will have a lighter flavor when compared to taking the shot without being diluted.

You really can take chlorophyll shots in any way you want!

When Should I Take Chlorophyll Shots?

The good news is that you can pretty much take it whenever you want!

With that said, considering its plant-powered hydration effects, it’s great to use before or after a workout. Take a shot before yoga class or after your morning run to keep your body hydrated and happy. You can even add it to your water to enhance your H2O in between reps at the gym.

It’s a great addition to a juice cleanse as well because it can help you stay nice and hydrated.

As far as the best time of year to take chlorophyll shots, they’re a great option in the Spring to help cleanse after the trend of heavier, winter months. Of course, there’s never a wrong time to get some quick water intake in a natural and easy way!

Adding Chlorophyll to a Juice Cleanse

If you’re already on track to cleanse through the power of plant-forward juices, then hydration shots are easy ways to elevate your hydration plan and get even more out of your cleanse.

And if you get tired of chlorophyll, you can take aloe vera hydration shots instead. These are velvety smooth and have a light, subtle taste. It’s great on its own or when added to some ice-cold H2O.

Go Green: The Effect of Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is the pigment that gives plants their green color, but it can do a lot more than that. The benefits of chlorophyll include antioxidant effects and the ability to quickly boost your hydration.

You can make chlorophyll a part of even the busiest days easily, especially since you can just take it as a straight shot. Not to mention, you can add it to around 32 ounces of fresh water to enhance your H2O intake without ever even noticing.

It’s a subtle flavor, but it packs some bold benefits
