The health benefits that come from eating ENERGYbits or any of their "sub" bits is amazing. From supporting weightloss, immunity, increasing performance, beauty, and so much more! They really are tiny powerhouses of nutrition.
I love how this chart shows the depth of nutrition in the bits:
Noted below are the nutritional details for each of our four algae tabs. The most important thing to remember is that ALL of our algae tabs contain just ONE ingredient. Algae. That's it. There is NOTHING else in them. They are 100% organically grown algae. All of our tabs contain at least 60% protein and 40 nutrient and just ONE calorie. The key difference between them is that RECOVERYbits® are100% chlorella, an algae that builds your immune system and removes toxins while ENERGYbits® and SKINNYbits® are 100% spirulina, an algae that energize you and fill you up. VITALITYbits® are a blend of the two algae so you get a little bit of both. All of our BITS are the most nutritious food on earth (and that's not just our opinion, but is a statement backed by science, NASA, The World Bank, The United Nations and many other global health authorities) We hope you try our BITS and when you do, we are sure they will improve your health and energy, one BIT at a time ♥"-http://www.energybits.com/index.php/nutritional-info
Isn't that neat?!
One thing that was noted when my sample of energybits arrived, was that it can take some time to get used to the taste of the great algae, spirulina, and chorella. It is recommended that you swallow your first ones before trying to chew them. I think of it as similar to the adjustment of eating vegetables or organ meats. For many people, it takes hiding them in yummy dishes or introducing them daily so they can get used to the flavor and actually start enjoying them. Also, I personally tried just a few bits my first time to get used to them instead of taking 30. It may help you adjust to the flavor while getting some great nutrients into your body.
