Want your Pet to be as Healthy and Vibrant as you?
Give them algae tabs. Here’s why.
Your pet has nutritional needs just like you do. But, if their diet is insufficient, or if they are experiencing stress, joint pain or other health conditions you need to know how to help them. One thing you can do is supplement their diet with a protein rich source of vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids. What supplement has all that you may ask? Why algae, of course. And, depending on which health condition your pet needs the most help with, you can give them any of our algae tabs. Ou ENERGYbits® are 100% spirulina algae and will give them more energy and our RECOVERYbits® algae tabs are 100% chlorella algae which will help build their immune system. The best choice might be our VITALITYbits® algae tabs that are 50% chlorella algae and 50% spirulina algae, giving your pet the best of both worlds. So next time Sparky has lost his spark, consider adding our algae tabs to his diet and we're sure he'll bounce back. And so will you!

How Do I Give Algae To My Pet?
When you are introducing a new food like algae to your pet, the best time to do this is early in the morning when they wake up hungry and thirsty. To start, we recommend giving them 5-6 tabs to ensure it’s something they like. Although frankly, we haven't found a four legged creature yet who didn't love our algae tabs so we're pretty sure your pet will love them too. Try mixing the tabs into their food or give them as treats In the unlikely event that they don't like the algae, you'll be the lucky one because then you can have the tabs all to yourself! But so far we have found that all pets, especially dogs love our BITS. And why not? They are BITS of food. Concentrated, high protein, high nutrition green food. Heck the astronauts even eat algae on their space missions. Honest. And who knows, there may even be dogs in space eating it too? Our algae tabs even come with a slim travel tin that makes it really easy to carry your BITS with you wherever you go. From outer space or the dog run in the park, you'll always be ready to share BITS with your pet when they deserve a treat. And while you’re at it, give yourself some too! Why not? You both deserve to eat well. Frankly we think dogs are a lot smarter about their dietary needs than us humans. They always seem to know what’s good for them! Maybe that’s why our BITS have 100% puppy approval! In fact we've been told by many customers that their dogs and cats "go crazy" for our BITS. We even had one pet owner tell us that their small dog loved our BITS so much that one day he chewed his way into her 1,000 tab bag that she had left on the kitchen counter and devoured the whole thing. All in one sitting. Amusing yes, but not recommended. So, be sure to store your BITS in the fridge out of harms way, or you could be in for a big surprise when you come home one day. Naughty dog. Literally.
How Much Algae Do I Give My Pet?
The amount of algae you feed your dog (or cat) depends on your pet's weight, age and health condition. We suggest that a 50-pound dog could be started with 5-6 tabs a day and within a few days you could easily increase this to 10-12 tabs/day or more. So, starting out with just a few tabs, gives you the confidence to know they are totally safe. In fact, in the fifty years that algae has been studied and consumed, there have not been any reports of negative side affects, allergic reactions or interactions. From all we have read, seen and experienced ourselves, our algae tabs seem to be the safest, healthiest thing in the world. The most nutritious too. Remember, algae is food. It's green food that comes from a plant, not from a prescription or pill. Its been safely eaten and studied worldwide for over fifty years. It's even been sold in the USA for over 40 years, but very few people know about it. If you are trying to decide which of our 'BITS" to give your pet, here are a few guidelines. If you think your pet needs more energy, we recommend our ENERGYBits® which are 100% spirulina algae. If your pet needs to correct or prevent a health condition, we recommend our RECOVERYBits® which are 100% chlorella algae. If you would like to help your pet with both of these, or if you want to keep things simple, we recommend our VITALITYBits® which are 50% spirulina and 50% chlorella and thus provide a mix of health benefits.
Why Algae Helps
Algae Can Help Your Pet’s Health
Algae can help improve the health and vitality of all pets (and you too!). This is because it has the highest concentration of nutrients and protein in the world. Even better, the protein in algae is plant protein and is already in the form of amino acids. This differs from animal protein which needs to be broken down into amino acids before it can be absorbed. So when you give your pet our algae tabs, they automatically and easily absorb all of the protein and should immediately have more energy to play catch, roll around on the grass or take you for a walk. Dogs require 22 amino acids and a deficiency in any of them can cause health problems. Fortunately dogs can make 12 of these amino acids but the remaining ones (called essential amino acids) must be consumed. Algae contains all 10 of these essential amino acids: arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Aside from feeding algae to your pet to improve their overall health, algae may also help if your dog suffers from arthritis or cancer, since algae has been known to strengthen their autoimmune system and boost their healing (as it can with humans). And of course, algae is also loaded with chlorophyll, which is cleansing and healing to your pet's health. Ever notice that when dogs are sick, they eat grass? This is because they instinctively know they need chlorophyll (which is what makes grass green). Chlorophyll is cleansing and will helps correct most illnesses – in you or your pet. Amazing isn't it? That's why we are pretty darn sure your pet will love our algae. It has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world. Chlorophyll is so cleansing, it’s like having a bath for your insides. Bubbles optional.
Why Drink Water?
OK, so now you know that algae can help your pet feel like a superhero. But you’re not done yet. Like you, they also need water. Lots of it.
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”. Well, 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 or your pet either. So help your pet drink up and 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, 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 I bet you are walking around as 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. And 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 energy and weight loss.
By the way, that 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 give your pet lots of water – preferably with our algae tabs. Heck they’re even approved by little Goldie.
