SKINNYbits are 100% spirulina, an algae that contains forty nutrients including critical ones that reduce inflammation in blood vessels and lower blood pressure. We all need more of that right! Even better, SKINNYbits have just ONE ingredient, ONE calorie and ZERO net carbs so you can enjoy a handful and be sugar-free, guilt-free and almost calorie-free!
Inflammation is not good for the body, it can damage blood vessels and lead to strokes or heart disease. To help prevent heart disease and reduce inflammation, your body needs Omega-3 and GLA. Omega-3 and GLA are essential fatty acids that help decrease triglyceride levels and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) while increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL). This helps lower blood pressure which helps reduce the chance of stroke and heart disease. Give yourself and your loved ones optimal heart health with BITS - the gift that keeps on giving.
Lower Blood Pressure
Having an adequate amount of nitric oxide and magnesium in your body can help maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule that expands and dilates the blood vessels, which increases the blood flow and improves circulation throughout the body. A sufficient amount of nitric oxide also reduces plaque growth and blood clots. Magnesium is used in the production of prostaglandin E1, a vasodilator which causes the blood vessels to relax and widen so the blood can flow more easily and lower blood pressure. To make sure your body always has an adequate amount of nitric oxide and magnesium, take your BITS every day. They are loaded with nitric oxide and magnesium, but also antioxidants like beta carotene (Vitamin A) which protect your blood vessels from free radicals.
Feel Lots More Love
The American Heart Association says that getting too much sugar can significantly increase your risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. According to a study in JAMA: Internal Medicine, if as little as 17% of your daily calories com from added sugar, you have a 38% greater risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. OMG, that's pretty scary considering how much sugar we all consume and is more reason why we hope you will start taking BITS every day. BITS are not only a great way to love your heart, they contain NO SUGAR and ZERO net carbs so they have NO affect on glucose or ketones, will reduce cravings and will keep you full for hours. That's why SKINNYbits are terrific if you are fasting ,vegan, paleo, diabetic, keto or on a low-carb diet. ZERO net carbs means that your body isn't storing calories as fat so BITS will even help you lose weight. And you can't say that about chocolate!
Normal Muscle Function
Magnesium is necessary for normal muscle functions. A deficiency in magnesium can lead to muscle weakness, cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease) and other problems like chest pain, high blood pressure, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, or heart attack. Magnesium is also needed in the body for proper smooth muscle function and maintain homeostasis by transporting sodium and potassium in and out of cells. To help keep your heart healthy and functioning properly, take your BITS! A single serving of BITS has 36 mg of magnesium and taking them every day will keep your heart and muscles functioning properly.
Iron is vital to our health because it is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. Most of our iron is stored in our hemoglobin (red blood cells) and without sufficient iron, you fatigue and cells aren't oxygenated properly and this contributes to an acidic environment and disease. Oh dear. To make matters worse, most women are iron-deficient and this causes fatigue, brain fog or anemia. The easiest way to correct this is with BITS which are loaded with plant-based iron. Want to show the lady in your life some love? Share your BITS with her and watch her energy, heart and love grow stronger every day.
Homocysteine is an amino acid in the blood that needs to be broken down. If it is not properly broken down, it can cause arteries to harden and thicken which causes problems for circulating blood levels. This increases the chances of developing cardiovascular disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease. The B vitamins are needed to break down homocysteine, especially folic acid (Vitamin B9). Folic acid helps reduce the thickening arterial walls to counteract the development of hardening arteries and atherosclerosis. BITS are you best, plant-based source for all your B vitamins, including B9 to help prevent this.
