A few years ago, a friend of mine began working for a start up company that sold "bits" made out of alge and vitamins geared towards weightloss, fitness, energy and vitality. Fast forward to 2013 and I saw someone tweet about loving their "Energy Bits!" I had to reach out to the company and see if I could get a sample to blog about! I really wanted to try their products but hadn't ever purchased any. At any rate, I received a sample and was so excited to try them...then I got sick. I kept putting it off and putting it off and I finally tried them this week! I LOVE them.
The first time I used the "bits" (you take about 30 algae&spirulina tabs at a time-they're tasteless) I was heading to a cardio barre class. I had zero-energy. I felt like I was about to get sick and didn't even want to go to class. I figured it was a PERFECT time to try out this product! It was indeed! I felt more awake and full of energy. It was a 6:00 a.m. class and really seemed to help me make it through the day. They really saved me that day. The second time I took them, I just needed a pick-me-up before heading off to work. I felt great during the day. I was more alert and able to tackle the job of being an early-childhood teacher on a snowy Monday morning.
I'm really inerested in trying more of their products and purchacing the Energy Bits!
A few quick facts about these little bits:
- Algae is 60% protein- the highest concentration on the planet.
- Algae quickly converts to glucose because it's already in amino acid form, which builds muscles. Glucose is one major source of energy in the body.
- Algae tabs are 100% spirulina, which release nitric oxide into your body naturally. Our bodies and muscles need to use nitric oxide to open blood vessels and deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
- Olympic athletes, NASA astronauts and millions more world wide have been utilizing algae for the last 50 years. I had no idea! total shocker to me.
If you're looking for a product that will give you natural energy, without the chemicals and additives, and zero-crash...give Energy Bits a try!
