ENERGYbits® Review & Giveaway
I don’t know about y’all, but I’m plain pooped with all the running around I’m always doing. In just a few weeks, I’ve flown back and forth from the West Coast to the East Coast three times, continued training for the Philly marathon, had kidney surgery and started filming my new sports TV show here in Houston, all while house-hunting.
If the jet lag and time zone changes weren’t enough to zap my energy, I don’t know what is. Add everything else into that mix and I’m downright doomed. Aside from eating a healthy diet and drinking lots of water and taking vitamins, I was looking for a little more edge…
Then I ran across ENERGYbits® on Twitter. They offered me a sample, hoping to get some feedback and share with my readers my true and honest thoughts (because y’all know I never hold back). So here goes…
When I first got my tin of ENERGYbits, I was a bit taken back. The average “dose” is ~30 of the mini tabs – granted they are small, but it was rather daunting at first. I have to swallow 30 of these tiny green algae pills? I could spend this time working out instead of doing this, was my first thought. I emailed my contact and she said many of their customers get creative with their bits (like most people do with supplements, etc). She recommended mixing them into yogurt pre-workout or adding them to a smoothie. It was pretty much the equivalent of eating a handful of raisins or nuts and the benefits once getting them into your belly – AMAZE.
Here are a ton of ideas from their Pinterest boards on how to eat them or mix them in new ways. I wish I had seen this first, but since I’ll be ordering more, that’s good too.
I won’t sit here and say it made me run faster or jump higher than I ever have before, but it definitely perked up my energy levels without leaving me that crashing feeling of death just a few hours later.
And if you’re wondering if these are safe and legal, rest assured, they are. I wouldn’t be posting here if they weren’t or if I didn’t like them. Also, there are a ton of athletes from MLB, NHL, Olympics and many more that are ambassadors for the brand and they love them. Check out all their elite athletes they currently work with. (Y’all know I have an awkward obsession with Brandon Prust from the Montreal Canadiens, and you guessed it, he’s one of their ambassador athletes!)
When it comes to health benefits, there are quite a few listed on their website from beauty, health, longevity, detox and more. Here are just a few of the athletic/health benefits listed, which is most important for me right now.
By the numbers: To energize your workout naturally, the bits are 100% natural organic green algae and only contain ONE calorie ingredient. They have 64% protein and 40 vitamins, antioxidants and nitric oxide. They are also 100% NON GMO, and contain no sugar, no chemicals, no caffeine, no gluten, no soy, no additives of any kind. They are 100% RAW, kinda like The Blonde Side 🙂
