Running requires a lot of energy. Having to break up with my pillow morning after morning is rough, and trying to get my body moving before the sun shows its face can be even harder. I tend not to eat anything before my shorter, weekday runs. The thought of food, gooey gels or chewy chews (no, I couldn’t think of a better adjective) just aren’t appealing to my not-quite-awake-yet tummy. That means I’m running on empty in the AM, and boy, does it show.
Without any sort of fuel, I tend to be sluggish, and when I’m sluggish, I’m not mentally “in it.” So, what’s an early morning running gal to do? The easiest option would be to “get back together” with my pillow and skip the workout, but come on, we all know that never works out – no matter how comforting and supportive he may be (yes, I did just compare a piece of foam wrapped in fabric to a boyfriend, and no, I won’t take it back – it’s a great simile. One day you’ll catch yourself saying, “Boyfriends are like pillows. Comforting and supportive, but every now and then you have to ditch him and do you’re own thing.” All the women who are independent, throw your hands up at me!).
Phenomenal (that’s one of those words I can never spell correctly, like
excersize, exersize, exercise – there it is) pillow similes aside, the answer to sluggish morning workouts is:
Energybits are simply algae tablets. That’s it. No hidden ingredients or chemicals. Just algae.
When algae is taken prior to any activity, including a fitness class or workout, it improves your energy, increases your stamina, clears your mind and eliminates fatigue or hunger. When taken after a workout or any strenuous activity it also cleans out toxins, speeds recovery, reduces inflammation and helps build lean muscle. Not bad for something straight from nature that was the first plant on east 2.5 billion years ago.
I guess there’s reason this stuff has been around for so long. Survival of the fittest, right Darwin?! Funny that now it’s making others more fit. Hopefully that won’t come around to bite algae in the butt.
But seriously, this stuff is pretty good. I used them before some morning runs and definitely felt more energized. Energybits don’t contain any caffeine, chemicals, sugar, fructose, preservatives, gluten, soy, animal products or any artificial substances. So what the heck does it have? Haven’t you been paying attention? Maybe you need some ALGAE to snap into focus and get fit – so you can be fit and focused (see what I did there – shameless blog plug – on my own blog).
[Energybits] are 100% vegan, 100% raw, 100% non GMO, 100% kosher, and contain over 40 vitamins and minerals, 64% protein, Omega 3s, antioxidants, chlorophyll, nitric oxide, and more. All for just one calorie per tab.
So pretty much, anyone can eat them and experience the benefits!
You can have them if you like protein.
They fit with your kosher routine.
You can have them if your vegan.
Even eat them if your Pagan.
You can have them in a box.
You can have them with a fox.
You can have them in a boat.
You can … ok you get the point.
They’re versatile! Just check out all this good stuff:
Would I do that to you, dear reader? (No. Say, no.)
No! Of course not! All of the protein in algae is an amino acid – which means it is absorbed right away, delivering a constant and steady stream of energy without the crash. No shakies and no upset tummies here.
While these bits work quite well to deliver energy sans caffeine and ingredients I can’t pronounce, they aren’t perfect.
These are algae tablets. Algae is grown in the water. It’s what a lot of fish feed off of. Hitherto, it makes sense that these bits smell and taste a bit like fish food.
Energybits is quite aware of this minute flaw in their energizing super food plan, however, and they strongly suggest that you swallow the bits like a pill rather than chew them. Save the taste buds! Here, here, Energybits.
