I love finding new companies and products!! As you all know, I only work with companies and promote products I believe in wholeheartedly.
SO my new love?
... and they are based out of Boston - yes I love to promote a local company as well! :)
What are ENERGYbits you may ask?
Made from 100% organicallly grown spirulina algae and loaded with 40 nutrients, ENERGYbits® algae tabs have the highest concentration of protein in the world (64%) all for just one calorie per tab. Endorsed by the United Nations as the most nutritious food on earth, spirulina algae has been a favorite of Olympic gold medalists for decades and is a super food in every sense of the word, delivering instant and enduring energy to your brain and body.
Yes you read that correctly - algae. I was unsure about that at first as well. But when I announced my 3k Twitter Follower Giveaway on Twitter, ENERGYbits contacted me saying they were interested in being a part of my prize packs.
Well, before I would allow that to happen I had to test them out myself. They sent me a sample - a little tin with the ENERGYbits tabs inside.
They recommend taking 30-40 tabs 10-15 minutes before a workout for maximum results. Each tab is just 1 calorie.
I decided to test them out before my 21-miler on March 23. Now I was told you could chew the tabs or swallow them with water. I didn't have any water on the bus so I had to go with chewing.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ... personally. :P
They got stuck in my teeth and it wasn't the taste -algae - that I wanted to stuck in my mouth for hours to come.
BUT, they paid off.
My legs felt strong throughout the 3-hour run. I didn't feel the normal fatigue that I would feel on such a long run.
So chewing the tabs were worth it.
Since that day, I have ALWAYS made sure to have water on hand so I could swallow the tabs and no taste. :)
I liked the sample so much that I made my first ENERGYbits purchase on March 29 and delivery arrived on April 2.
I like that service. :)
So I have been taking ENERGYbits before runs, Spinning, weight lifting, etc. I even took some before a 45 minute walk with a friend.
Because ... ENERGYBits can be used for:
- Increasing Energy
- Increasing Endurance
- Increasing Mental Vitality
- High Protein Snack
- Curbing Hunger
- Balancing Blood Sugar
- Lowering Blood Pressure
- Reducing Fatigue
On April 29, I actually had the honor of visiting the ENERGYbits headquarters since they are just a train ride away from my house. The team behind ENERGYbits are a small, but dedicated group. They have been doing their research for years and are doing a great job of growing their brand through social media and visiting local races/running clubs. (Both things I love :O))
I even saw the guys before the Half of Quincy on Sunday and they came through in a pinch with some water so I could take my ENERGYbits. Thanks again guys!
But after trying the product, really reading up on the benefits of algae and meeting the team behind the product, I definitely wanted to get on board ... and thankfully they agreed.
And Dani as an ENERGYbits Ambassador was born.
(Who am I throwing in the third person there?)
