I am so excited to bring you a new product review and giveaway!
I first found out about EnergyBits when they hosted a #VegRunChat (if you are on Twitter you should check it out – Sunday at 9:00 pm EST) a couple weeks ago.
I couldn’t wait to try them out, so they sent me a sample to give a shot!
I always have a hard time mustering up the energy for workouts and this seemed perfect.
ENERGYbits is a new Boston based sports nutrition company. Our “bits” are rapidly becoming the fuel of choice for athletes and people looking to lead active lifestyles. ENERGYbits haste the highest concentration of protein in the world and deliver a steady stream of energy, all naturally and all without sugar, caffeine, chemicals or stomach distress. Even better, ENERGYbits are the only protein in the world that also contain natural antioxidants and Omega 3 which reduce muscle inflammation, iron which prevents fatigue, chlorophyll which builds the immune system and electrolytes which replenish mineral imbalances, all for just one calorie per tab. No other protein offers all this.
ENERGYbits are all natural too, because they are a food, not a supplement. They have just one ingredient – 100% organically grown spirulina algae. Algae has been used by Olympic athletes for over 50 years, but is still virtually unknown in the USA and Canada. We are the first company to bring algae to national attention as a high protein, high performance snack food for athletes and active consumers
How can you go wrong with that!? The thing I love most about ENERGYbits is the fact that they are all natural and don’t have a huge list of crazy ingredients included.
Algae has actually been used worldwide for over fifty years in many countries. It has the highest concentration of protein, chlorophyll, beta carotene, antioxidants and vitamins in the world.
It was first introduced after WW II by the American Government to prevent mass starvation in Japan/Asia. Japanese now add it to virtually everything due to this remarkable nutritional value. It has been said that “one gram of algae has the nutritional equivalent of 1,000 grams of fruit and vegetables.” – What is not to like!?
Unlike many other supplements that we take before and after a workout, algae is a FOOD and is grown not created and mixed together in a laboratory. It is grown a lot like other vegetables in water, then harvested, dried, and packaged much like dried fruit. Unlike dried fruit however it has NO sugar/fructose and NO chemicals.
For athletes and runners the protein in algae is already in amino ace form so it is absorbed instantly. This allows the algae to deliver a constant and steady stream of energy without a rush or crash or any distress on your stomach. WIN!!
Score: 4 out of 5
The only reason I didn’t rank this a complete 5 is if you actually get the tablets close enough to your nose where you can smell it, it isn’t the most appealing.
The great thing about the tablets is that they are swallowed so you really don’t taste it!
Score: 5 out of 5
To get the full effect of ENERGYbits you are instructed to take 30 of them before your workout, when you feel lethargic, or just need a boost of energy!
Each tablet contains 1 calorie each so you are taking in about 30 calories.
I took them before one of my swimming workouts last week and I really did feel an energy increase! I was trying to wait and do my workouts later in the day and I noticed more alertness and that “ready to go” feeling after I took it.
I prefer taking these SO much more than many pre-workouts I have taken in the past when you don’t REALLY know what is in it. You know this is natural!
It’s 100% vegan, 100% raw, 100% non GMO, 100% kosher, and contains over 40 vitamins and minerals.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! I love that I know what is going into my body and what I am taking.
I can tell a definite difference when I take these before my workout.
There are actually a total of 4 different types that ENERGYbits provides: RECOVERbits, ENERGYbits, VITALITYbits, and SKINNYbits. You can go to their website to learn more about each.
