ENERGYbits, we all know, is made from 100% Spirulina algae. These great algae tablets can be used in boosting your athletic performance. They can also help to maximize your endurance while working or working out. I personally use them for running because they boost my mental alertness and keep me rolling smooth for miles and miles. BUT...they can help with so much more than "just" exercise. You don't have to be an athlete to take these. You can take them when you are in a crunch and need a snack. They can stop your craving for food, all while giving you a steady stream of natural energy throughout the day/evening/night. The added plus? They are only 1 calorie per "bit." Packed with over 40 nutrients, as well as boasting the highest concentration of protein in the world with 64%, ENERGYbits is a proven solution for a healthy lifestyle. One thing they are not is a supplement. They are 100% raw food. The United Nations even endorsed Spirulina algae as the most nutritious food on earth. The list of amazing things Spirulina algae can do for the body is worthy of a page itself. Just to name a few: Balancing blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, reducing fatigue, increasing mental vitality. As I have called them over and over, my miracle tablet. I bet you didn't know that research done by NASA showed that 1 kg of Spirulina had the nutritional equivalent of 1000 kg of fruits and vegetables. Now onto....
RECOVERYbits are also algae. However, they are made from 100% Chlorella algae, and are to be used differently than ENERGYbits. RECOVERYbits can be used as a natural way to recover, prevent or help correct illnesses of any kind, including colds and hangovers.
To really give you an idea of how great Chlorella algae is, and how to properly use it, I went to the RECOVERYbits website and copied the following for you to read. As you can see, and even though it is also algae, it is used entirely different than ENERGYbits.
"Chlorella algae is so highly regarded, it was used to help the victims of Hiroshima and Chernobyl heal from radiation poisoning. To this day, most Japanese still take chlorella before they leave their house each morning, not Vitamiin C. And for good reason, chlorella contains a vast number of vitamins and nutrients, including Vitamin C, ZInc, all your B vitamins and more. In a nutritional "show down", American Idol style, chlorella algae, would beat Vitamin C hands down. In addition to being over 60% protein and having all of the key nutritional components that your body needs, our RECOVERYbits® have a powerful ability to help detoxify your body and eliminate chemicals and other toxins that gather there. Taking chlorella daily can help remove the additives that are present in our food supply, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. Some doctors are even recommending it to cancer patients because it not only helps build their immune system, but it helps remove the excess chemo therapy after each treatment and thus helps patients feel less nauseous. Remarkabley, chlorella algae binds to all toxins (including alcohol in your bloodstream) and eliminates them from the body through natural means (elimination, urine, sweat, etc) .But don’t worry if you haven’t heard about RECOVERYbits® or chlorella algae. You will. The extraordinary health properties of chlorella algae can’t be over looked much longer. It is virtually unknown in America, but for the last 50 years, millions around the world have taken it to improve their health."
As you can see, although they are both algae, they are very different from one another. ENERGYbits are used for exactly that, energy. As I mentioned earlier, they are a great mid-day snack as well. They would be great to take post workout to build that energy back, and to get those electrolytes back into your system. And we all know how we feel after exercising...hungry. Pop a few with a glass of water and you're good until dinner.
The best time to take RECOVERYbits is when you are feeling sickness coming on. They would also be good after really long runs when your immune system needs recharging. Or after drinking alcohol, wine or beer, to prevent a hangover from happening. I wouldn't suggest taking them as a mid-day snack. Leave that to ENERGYbits. As you can see, they are as different as night and day. I just wanted to post this so you, the consumer, get the right benefits from using both products. Thank you for reading. Have a great week!!
