There’s been a lot of buzz on the internet lately about a
supplementsuperfoodthat is finding its way into running bags all over this country (and beyond). This is not another energy drink, protein bar, gel, gu, etc.; this is a completely organic and naturally occurring food that has been used for its health benefits for over 50 years. I’m talking about Spirulina. ENERGYbits provides you with a dose of this protein-packed superfood, boosting your mental and physical energy and endurance naturally.

How to Take?
For best results, swallow at least 30 ENERGYbits® (or more) before any workout, run, game, or intense physical or mental activity. They will improve your energy and endurance. Also, take whenever you are tired, hungry, or don’t have time to eat or cook. They are a terrific high protein, low calorie snack or meal on the go (a favorite of Olympic athletes). Swallow with beverage (or chew them as you would a handful of nuts). Remember, they’re “bits” of food (not pills).
I’ve actually been using spirulina every day for the past few months. I add a few teaspoons of it to my green smoothies
or slip it into a recipe when I get the chance. When I heard that I could take it in a tab form, I was pretty excited to try them. ENERGYbits contacted me last week, offering me a sample to try and review; I was all for it. Anytime that I can review a natural product for my readers, I’m game. (hint..hint)
Luckily, I got the little green tabs in the mail the day before a 5k race. I thought, how perfect. The only problem was that I couldn’t differentiate my excitement, from the energy I was receiving from the bits – I was pretty amped up 🙂 I thought I should try them again before doing a review, so I took them again this morning before a 10 mile run.
To really put the bits to the test, I skipped my morning coffee (scary) and breakfast, taking the bits instead. I nevermiss my morning coffee, so this was a true test of the spirulina’s power. I took 20 tabs with water and waited about 20 minutes. I didn’t really notice anything until about 5 miles into my run; I was feeling great and not tiring at all. During the last three miles of my run, I actually gained speed without trying. The really surprising part – after my run I wasn’t even hungry (Usually after burning 1,100 calories I’m starving).
I would say that these little bits are definitely beneficial for us runners. One important thing to note is that ENERGYbits are a food and not a supplement. The energy that you receive from the bits is not as much a rush as it is a sustainable type boost; the more you push yourself, the better they work! I’ve been talking about the benefits of superfoods
since I started this blog. The cool thing about ENERGYbits is that you can just pop the little tin in your gym bag, pocket, or center console of your car. I may start using them to stave off hunger when I’m in my 5-hour classes too.
