Who should take algae tabs? EVERYONE. Our algae BITS are so safe and contain so much nutrition that anyone of any age will benefit enormously from them. From athletes, teams and fitness enthusiasts, to children, working professionals, moms, students, grandparents and everyone in between. Even pets. Our algae is for everyone.
How many do you take? TAKE 20-30 TABS/PER SERVING. You need at least 20-30 tabs per serving to feel a difference and at least 30 tabs/day to experience a difference in your health. And before you gasp in horror, remember that these algae tabs are really FOOD, not pills. Think of them as you would nuts. You wouldn’t eat just one nut if you were hungry, would you? No, you would likely have a handful (which would be about 200-300 calories of which 120 calories would be fat and virtually no vitamins). Or, you could have a handful of 30 -60 algae tabs, for just 30 -60 calories, get 40 nutrients and vitamins, no fat and be full for hours. Of course, you don’t need to chew your BITS, you can swallow them but either way, the more you take, the better you will feel and the longer they will last. So chew or swallow 20-60 tabs whenever you are hungry, tired or engaged in any sport. Each tab is just ONE calorie and is over 60% protein so they are a fast, easy, efficient and healthy snack to have any time of day. Our Founder has 100-150 tabs every day and she feels great! You can safely and easily take up to 300 tabs/day because they are green food and your body recognizes it as food, just as it does a salad. By the way, once you are taking at least 30 tabs/day, your body will be getting so much nutrition, you can probably throw away most of your vitamins. Your desire for snack foods, energy drinks, sugar or protein shakes will also be significantly reduced or disappear completely, You’ll probably even buy fewer groceries.
Why do I need to take so many? BECAUSE THEY ARE TINY. That’s why we call them “BITS.” And like we said, you don’t eat just one nut at a time do you? Well, our BITS are the same way. You need a handful of them to get rid of hunger or to boost your energy. A handful works out to about 20-60 BITS. Think of them as a “BIT” of a low calorie, high protein meal or snack. We made them this tiny because most people are likely going to want to swallow them – at least at first. Once you get used to them (we admit, they are an acquired taste), you will likely want to chew them. But since so many people have difficulty swallowing, we made our tabs REALLY small so it would be easy for them. Besides, we think they’re cute this way.
Is there a maximum number you can take? NO. Just like you can’t overdose on a salad, you can’t really overdose on algae either. Remember, algae tabs are FOOD. They are NOT pills. In fact, they are the most nutritionally dense food in the world and even NASA is quoted as saying: “1 kg of algae has the nutritional equivalent of 1,000 kg of fruits and vegetables.” So algae has 1,000 times more nutrition than anything else in the world. Wow! That's quite an endorsement. We’re blushing. And we’re excited for you because once you start taking algae, your body will soak up the nutrition like a sponge and you will start feeling better in no time. Frankly, the more BITS you take, the better you will feel and the more energy you will have. In general however, recommend no more than 300 tabs per day, unless of course you really want to.
Are there any negative side affects? NO. There are no negative side affects. Well, that is, unless you consider great health, unlimited energy and a life full of vitality a negative side affect? We do however want to be sure you know that when you take RECOVERYbits®, which are 100% chlorella and which detox you, that IF you have a LOT of toxins in your body (from mercury, alcohol, processed food etc) that you may experience some detox side affects. These side affects would occur regardless of what method of detox you chose to follow…so its NOT the RECOVERYbits® or algae that are causing any detox symptoms. What happens is that during a detox, the toxins are pulled out of your cells and enter your blood stream and on their way OUT of your body, they cause detox symptoms. These detox symptoms could include minor headaches, minor nausea, breakouts or lethargy. It doesn’t happen to everyone but when it does, it could last anywhere from 2 days to 10 days. It all depends on many toxins you have collected in your body. Most people experience no detox affects at all, but if you do, be assured you are NOT having an allergic reaction to the algae, you are just detoxing. Think of it this way, wouldn’t you rather put up with a few days of inconvenience to get rid of toxins that otherwise would stay in your body doing silent permanent damage? We thought so too. And remember, there have been no reported detox side affects from ENERGYbits®, SKINNYbits® or VITALITYbits®. Its just the RECOVERYbits® that detox you because they are 100% chlorella algae.
How do you take them? SWALLOW OR CHEW THEM. To start, we suggest you swallow your BITS with a glass of water. Be sure to drink lots of water anyway because your body needs it to process protein, even plant protein. But many people chew their BITS and love the taste. We have also found that some people like to mix their “BITS” into smoothies, yogurt or juice (great for kids) or sprinkle them over salads or crush them into peanut butter. We like to eat ours with berries. Yum Yum. The options are endless. You get the same health benefits whether you swallow or chew them. If you do chew them, eat them like you would a handful of nuts. By the way, a handful of our BITS will give you all the nutrition you need for the day at only 20-60 calories while a handful of nuts will give you mostly fat and about 200-300 calories. So turbo charge your meals or your snacks with algae tabs and you’ll get your nutritional needs for the day met, all in one bite. Sweet.
What do they taste like? “GREEN” AND A BIT LIKE NUTS. We’re not actually sure if “green” is a flavor but our BITS taste green. And its because, they have the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world (five times more than wheat grass). Our ENERGYbits® and SKINNYbits® both have a higher concentration of protein than our other BITS as well as some Omega 3 type fats in them, so they are “chewier” than our RECOVERYbits® or VITALITYbits® and may even stick to your teeth a bit. But if they stick, it only lasts a few seconds and when you swish with water, it will be gone. Our RECOVERYbits® do not stick to your teeth (and they do not contain the Essential Fatty Acid GLA that you find in ENERGYbits® or SKINNYbits®).
When do you take them? ANYTIME. Take them morning, noon and night. Take them all day or all night. You can take them alone or if you take them before meals, you will not only eat less, they will aid your digestion. But since they do different things, here’s an easy rule of thumb:
RECOVERYbits® - Take any time but ALWAYS AFTER drinking alcohol.
ENERGYbits ® – Take any time but ALWAYS BEFORE or during any athletic or mental activity
VITALITYbits® – Take any time of day or night
SKINNYbits® - Take any time and especially BEFORE any athletics or BEFORE meals (to reduce appetite)
You can really take any of our BITS any time but if you want a superior athletic performance, take ENERGYbits® BEFORE your work out and if you want to prevent a hangover, take RECOVERYbits® AFTER drinking wine or alcohol. To prevent hangovers you need at least 25-75 bits. They seem to absorb the alcohol right out of your blood stream. The bigger build you are or the more alcohol you have consumed, the more BITS you will need. And if they haven’t prevented your hangover, its likely because you didn’t take enough of them! We’ve road tested them ourselves and they prevented hangovers 99% of the time. All naturally too. Thank you Mom Nature. By the way, none of our algae bits will disturb your sleep and in fact, the high protein in them will likely help you sleep better. Night nite.
Are they safe? YES. Our algae bits are 100% safe. Algae has been safely used for over 50 years worldwide (including in the USA for over 30 years). Our algae bits are food, not pills, so they have no drug interactions, no chemicals, no sugar, no caffeine. Just jaw dropping amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals. And since we grow ours organically, they also pass all the requirements and contain none of the banned substances established by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), IOC (International Olympic Committee), the NCAA (National College Athletic Association) and all other athletic and professional associations or regulatory bodies.
Is there research to back this up? YES. There have been 100,000 scientific or nutritional studies done on algae, making it the most studied food group or supplement in the world. Not a single negative side affect has ever been found. Guess that’s why NASA has been feeding algae to astronauts for over 30 years. But keep in mind, that not all algae suppliers are equal. So be sure you are buying yours from a highly reputable source. Like us! We grow our algae organically, we have the highest production standards in the world (we have ISO 9000 certification) and we use the most current technology. Don’t put anything but the best in your body. That would be ours.
What’s in them? ONE INGREDIENT - ALGAE. That’s it. Nothing else. Nada. Zippo. No sugar, no caffeine, no gluten, no additives, no GMO, no preservatives, no binders, nothing artificial, nothing added, nothing subtracted. Just 100% algae. 100% green, 100% healthy, 100% raw, 100% pure. Straight from Mother Nature. Thanks Mom.
What are the benefits? ENDLESS BENEFITS. The list of nutritional, performance and energy benefits you can get from algae is almost endless. Our algae tabs are loaded with protein and nutrition, which is why you feel so good when you take them. They are particularly beneficial to anyone who travels a lot including executives or professional and elite athletes as well as performers, all who need energy and protein to keep their endurance and performance edge. Our high protein algae tabs are a portable, predictable and guaranteed source of protein and nutrition - something that is tough to find when you are always travelling to meetings, games, competitions and performances. Our BITS are your answer. They deliver nutrition and they easily slip into your pocket so they can travel everywhere with you. The nutritional profiles of our algae tabs are actually so long that we couldn’t possibly list everything here. So check out the labels on our website.
Is there a difference between the tabs? YES.
RECOVERYbits® detoxes you, helps builds your immune system and helps prevents hangovers
ENERGYbits® give you physical and mental energy and is a healthy, high protein snack.
VITALITYbits® are best for overall wellness and longevity
SKINNYbits® fill you up, helps you lose weight, reduces your appetite and gives you energy
ALL of our BITS have the highest concentration of protein found in the world (over 60%), the highest concentration of beta carotene, iron, chlorophyll and antioxidants in the world, over 40 vitamins including most B vitamins, all your electrolytes including magnesium, potassium and much more. All for just one calorie per tab.
Is your algae really that amazing? YES. Algae is the super hero of “super foods. Why? Because research shows that algae has the most dense nutritional profile of anything in the world so it helps your body and your immune system to work efficiently. It also grows so quickly and releases so much oxygen to the air that it is being identified as the possible solution to the environmental crisis and deteriorating ozone layer. So it’s good for you and mother earth too. Makes sense. After all, algae has been here a lot longer than we have. Did you know it was the first plant life of earth 2.5 billion years ago? Want to help save our planet earth? Then please take algae and tell your friends to take it too. Algae even generates so much energy while its growing, that it is also being heralded as the energy solution for the world (aka bio-fuel). And if that wasn’t enough good news, for the last forty years, algae has been considered the answer to world hunger. We hope to do our part with world hunger once we get bigger. But first we want to help you get your health and energy back, so that’s our focus right now. We hope that the launch of our algae tabs will help you understand the wonders of algae including its remarkable ability to help prevent colds, its documented ability to give you energy and remove toxins (including alcohol so it helps prevent hangovers) and its highly concentrated protein which fills you up and helps you lose weight, all while delivering all your nutritional needs for one calorie per tab. Algae will even help keep you young because it rebuilds your cells and DNA/RNA.
How much protein is in each serving? It depends.
Each serving size of our BITS is 12 tabs (3 grams) So, when you do the math, at first blush it looks like you’re getting the following amounts of protein per serving:
ENERGYbits®: 1.92 grams of protein (64% protein ,12 tabs (3 grams x 0.64.)
SKINNYbits®: 1.92 grams of protein (64% protein ,12 tabs (3 grams x 0.64)
VITALITYbits®: 1.86 grams of protein ( 62% protein so 12 tabs (3 grams x 0.62)
RECOVERYbits®: 1.8 grams of protein (60% protein so 12 tabs (3 grams x 0.60)
But, in reality, the amount of protein that your body gets from our BITS is much higher. This is because 100% of the protein in our algae bits is bio-available. In other words, your body absorbs ALL of it. This is in contrast to animal protein which is only 22% protein and which most of us can only absorb 30% - 50% of. This is because most of us don't have all the necessary co-factors and enzymes in our intestines to break the protein down to amino acid form. The ONLY way your body can absorb protein is in amino acid form. But the protein in algae is ALREADY IS IN AMINO ACID so you absorb it all. As a result, your body is actually absorbing up to 12 times more than the numbers above suggest. So the bio-available amount of protein in a single serving of our algae tabs (12 tabs) might look more like this:
ENERGYbits®: up to 23.04 grams of bio-available protein
SKINNYbits®: up to 23.04 grams of bio-available protein
VITALITYbits®: up to 22.32 grams of bio-available protein
RECOVERYbits®: up to 21.6 grams of bio-available protein
