I received a free sample of EnergyBits in exchange for writing a review on the blog.
So something that has been on mind lately is eating better. Well when I say lately, I mean always which also implies I'm REALLY bad at following through on this.
I'm always looking for easy and quick ways to eat better foods, more whole foods and less highly processed, high sugar foods. More superfoods!
Which leads me to introduce, ENERGYbits! These little algae pellets or tabs are a BEYOND easy way to get a punch of nutrition and I'm also able to give you a GIVEAWAY and a DISCOUNT CODE so you can try them out for yourself!
What are ENERGYbits?
ENERGYbits are the brainchild of Catharine Arnston "after her younger sister developed breast cancer and [her sister] was advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would help her heal. While researching alkaline foods for her sister, Catharine discovered algae. When she learned it could be swallowed and was the most alkaline, nutrient dense food in the world, she knew she had found the fastest, easiest way for athletes and consumers to gain the benefits of greens without having to eat them." (ENERGYbit.com)
Each tab is packed with nutrition. You've got lots of B vitamins, Iron, Zinc, Protein and Carbs all wrapped up in these little tabs.
Algae is a super food. It is 70% plant protein and packed with vitamins and minerals, all easily absorbed by the body!
It also is a great anti-oxidant which is important for containing free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells which is never good to maintaining proper cell function.
What other food can you get all of these nutrients from and a punch of anti-oxidant? That's why algae is great!
How do you eat them?
ENERGYbits come in tabs which are meant to be swallowed like vitamins. You can chew them, but they task very... green. I do find they smell a bit like fish food, which makes sense because fish flakes are algae too.
30 tabs = one serving!
What types of ENERGYbits are there?
There are 4 types of ENERGYbits:
- ENERGYbits - The original Spirulina bit. Great for anytime you need an energy boost. It's a high protein snack that will help with energy and alertness and are great for taking pre-workout to give you that boost!
- RECOVERYbits - These are a Chorella based bit. These bits help build your immune system and aid in detoxing your body. They are also touted as a hangover symptom reducer :)
- VITALITYbits - The 50% Spirulina and 50% Chorella bit. You get the energy boost of the ENERGYbit and the immune boost of the RECOVERYbit!
- SKINNYbits - These Spirulina tabs are made to be your go to green, raw snack. Promote health, energy and boost your body to keep you going without sugar and caffeine.
So let's get to the review!
I LOVE these tabs because they are easy to eat and easy to take with you. Having easy green, raw snacks that can literally go anywhere with you. I took them after a run and felt great the rest of the day. I took them before a run (that I had put off because I was feeling tired) and ended up having a pretty great run. These little tabs really stand up to the hype.
I only took 1 serving of each the RECOVERYbit and ENERGYbit but imagine what taking them regularly would do? That's my next mission!
