Want a healthy, high protein snack without chemicals, caffeine, sugar, gluten or soy? Want it safe enough for kids and just ONE calorie? Sound impossible?
Take algae tabs. Here’s why.
When you’re on the run, on the road or just plain hungry, we know you grab whatever you can find. Very often it's a bagel, protein bar or salty snack. Right? But did you know they are loaded with empty carbs and calories? You deserve better. Highly refined carbs can cause your blood sugar to spike and crash which can leave you feeling light headed, hungry or lead to cellular inflammation or diabetes.
To stop this cycle and to stabilize your blood sugar, you need protein. Protein digests slower than carbs. It releases glucose into the blood at a slower, stable rate, giving you the energy you need without the spike and crash of carbs. Protein also makes you feel full and satisfied so you are less likely to crave carbs in the first place. But these days, few of us have the time, budget or desire to eat long meals with lots of animal protein in them? So what are you to do? Good news, we have a fast, healthy solution for you. Our algae tabs. They're green, loaded with protein, low calorie, contain no sugar and you can carry them everywhere you go in their sleek travel tins. They're easy too. Just swallow or chew a handful whenever you are hungry and you'll be revived and satisfied in minutes. Your time is valuable. Why waste it standing in line waiting to buy an expensive high calorie carb snack when you can pop a handful of high protein algae tabs into your mouth without missing a beat, deadline or date? And, all for just ONE calorie per tab too. So, next time hunger strikes or you don't have time to cook, just pop a handful of algae tabs in your mouth. They're so loaded with greens, we're sure even Popeye would approve.

Algae’s High Protein Can Satisfy Hunger and Balance Blood Sugar
Why do our algae tabs bust your hunger? Well, for starters, algae has the highest concentration of protein in the world. Yup, it's over 60% protein. Our ENERGYbits® tabs and SKINNYbits® tabs have even more (64% protein) which is why they're the tabs we recommend you take as a snack or meal replacement. Both are made from 100% spirulina algae which contains healthy Omega 3 type fat and 40 other nutrients too so you'll be full and satisfied for hours.
ENERGYbits® and SKINNYbits® have the highest concentration of protein on the planet. Nothing is higher (animal protein is only 22% protein). Not only that, but the protein in algae is already in the form of amino acids so your body doesn’t have to do any work to absorb it (as it does with animal protein). Why do you need protein anyway? Well, not only does protein stop you from being hungry for long periods of time, it balances your blood sugar (important for diabetics), helps you lose weight, builds organs, muscles, skin, collagen and that’s just for starters. So, if you want to look great in your skinny jeans, keep up with the girls when shopping, ace your next exam or win your next game/race, algae protein is the answer.
Algae Feeds the Environment Too
Not only is algae good for you, its good for the environment too! Did you know that the amount of plant protein harvested per square acre of algae, vastly exceeds what you get from cattle farming? This is without those nasty, ozone-depleting cattle farts too! Even better, when chlorella algae is grown, it releases so much oxygen into the air that scientists believe it can slow down global warming, at a rate that is ten times that of the Amazon rainforests. Holy Shazam Batman!
Why Algae Helps
Loaded with Vitamins, Minerals and Iron
Are you starting to see that algae is not only a super food but a super snack? In fact, it has so much nutrition that way back in 1974, The United Nations declared it to be the ‘best food for the future’. Wow. That’s quite an endorsement. We’re blushing. Olympic athletes and astronauts eat it too. And why not? It has over 40 minerals and vitamins, 40 times more iron than spinach, 100 times more beta-carotene than carrots and all that protein too. Simply put, it is the most rocking snack in the world. Even NASA says that 1 gram of algae is nutritionally equal to 1,000 grams of vegetables and fruit. That’s a lot of groceries! So save yourself time and some cash. Take a handful of our ENERGYbits® or SKINNYbits® algae tabs before your next power lunch or instead of it! They might even make you feel like a superhero (tights optional of course).
Never Again Worry About Eating Your Greens
Tired of being nagged to eat your greens? Take our algae tabs instead. What’s the deal with greens anyway? Well, greens and especially algae are loaded with enzymes and chlorophyll (which, by the way cooking destroys). Your body needs enzymes for all your body functions to work (digestion, breathing, elimination of toxins). As for chlorophyll, well chlorophyll does so much its hard to know where to start. It is a powerful antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic, it builds your blood, your immune system and your tissues. It also heals wounds and carries oxygen to your cells. Want a cool factoid? Chlorophyll is so identical to your blood that during WWII when there was a shortage of blood transfusions, the medics used chlorophyll instead. Starting to see why you need it? We knew you would. So here’s the best news of all. Since, algae has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the entire world (five times more than wheat grass or liquid chlorophyll), when you take our algae tabs you’ll get all the benefits of chlorophyll without having to actually eat greens! Sweet. And for an extra chlorophyll boost, be sure to take our RECOVERYbits® which are a 100% chlorella algae. Chlorella algae has four times the amount of chlorophyll of spriulina algae which explains how it got its name, since “ chlora” is the Greek word for green.
Virtually No Calories
All of our algae tabs have lots of protein but virtually no calories. Each tab is loaded with over 40 vitamins and minerals but just ONE calorie so you get just pure nutrition and protein. No empty calories. What other snack can boast that? And since our algae tabs are so tiny (about the size of a tic tac®) you can carry them everywhere, and feel instantly satisfied and full when hunger or low blood sugar strikes. So snack away. Eat them all day. Your body will thank you and so will your waistline.
Why Drink Water?
OK, so now you know that algae can help you feel like a superhero again. But you’re not done yet. You also need water. Lots of it. And no, coffee or soda's don’t count. Nice try though.
Think about this. When you were a kid, you probably had a gold fish. Right? Remember what happened when you didn’t change the water? It got murky. Your goldfish seemed depressed, stopped swimming or worse – died. Poor thing. But once you cleaned out the bowl and replaced it with fresh water, little “Goldie” was probably back doing laps again, maybe even back flips like Dr. Seuss’s “One Fish, Two Fish”. Your body’s cells are just like little Goldie. They need a constant supply of fresh water and if they don’t get it, they slowly but surely shut down, just like little Goldie. Without a daily supply of fresh water, the water around your cells gets dirty, murky and toxic like the water in your goldfish bowl did. Yuck. Who wants dirty goldfish water sloshing around inside them? Not us. Not Goldie. And not you either. So drink up. Drink often. And hopefully drink with our algae tabs.
But seriously, here’s why you and your need water. Your brain is 75% water. In fact, your muscles are 75% water too. Ever notice how you get thirsty when you lift weights? You do lift weights don’t you? The point is, your body is over 60% water and some parts are even higher, like your blood and lungs which are 90% water. Did you know your body is constantly rebuilding itself? Yup, your bones, your organs, your skin, absolutely everything is in a constant state of re-growth 24/7. Can you imagine a skyscraper built without steel? Well, water is one of your body’s most critical building materials and it can’t build healthy bones, organs or anything else for you without water. Not only that, but water is what moves stuff around in your body. Not having enough water is like not having enough construction workers on a work site. Donald Trump would not be amused. So, you can see that water does much more than just quench your thirst. It actually helps to build and run your body efficiently. That’s why just an occasional glass of water isn’t enough. You really need those eight glasses every day. Sounds like a lot. We know.
So, lets do the math. Each day, a typical adult loses an average of six cups of water from urine, four cups from breathing, sweating and bowel movements and two to three cups from digestion. That’s twelve cups even before you add in the dehydrating effects of caffeine, stress or exercise. Granted some of your H20 needs could come from your diet but only if you are eating a lot of fruits and vegetables. And no, French fries do not count. Nice try though. So we bet you are walking around dehydrated but just don’t know it. When you are dehydrated, you fatigue easily and nothing works as well as it should. In fact, without sufficient water, your body thinks it's in survival mode. When this happens, your body behaves like a squirrel who hides nuts before the winter. It holds on to and stores whatever water it can get its hands on –causing swelling in feet, legs, hands, or horror of horrors - weight gain. But once you give your body what it needs, this stored water is usually released. Say hello to new energy and even weight loss.
By the way, those eight glasses of water a day is just a starting point. Your body treats water like a bank account. Every time you drink water, it’s like you’re making a deposit into the account. But unlike a real bank account where you are the only one authorized to make withdrawals, water withdrawals from your body can be made without your authorization or knowledge. Yikes! That’s right. It’s like giving thousands of total strangers your ATM card and PIN number and allowing them to withdraw whatever they want, whenever they want. And they do. The result? You become bankrupt, of water. And who are these unscrupulous strangers making these unauthorized withdrawals? Some are things you can control like your food and drink (eg caffeine and sugary foods are very dehydrating). Others are things you can’t control like breathing. Remember those twelve cups of water that you lose each day? Without making additional water “deposits” (i.e. drinking more water) to cover these other "unauthorized" water withdrawals your body can easily go into “overdraft” and become bankrupt i.e. dehydrated.
Still not convinced you need water? Then consider what happens when you get dehydrated. Without water in your body, you would be poisoned by your own waste products. Whoa! That got your attention didn’t it? Sorry for the drama. But here's what happens. During dehydration, the water surrounding your cells is reduced, leaving the small remaining amount to become stagnant and loaded with toxins. As dehydration continues, since your body absolutely has to have water surrounding its cells (to perform all its daily duties), it pulls out water from inside your cells. Yup, like a fugitive on the run, your body literally “steals” water where ever it can find it, from inside your cells, your blood, your organs and even from inside your colon (a big contributor to constipation). This continues until your cells finally lose all or most of their internal water, shrivel up, malfunction or become damaged. You can usually stop these early stages of dehydration just by drinking more water, but most people have no idea they are dehydrated. Too bad because there are so many health conditions that could be eased just by drinking more water. Who knew? Well, now you do. So drink up and drink often – preferably with our algae tabs. Heck they’re even approved by little Goldie.
