1. Protein to Feed Glucose to your Brain
Did you know your brain uses twice the amount of glucose as your other cells? When you are mentally fatigued, it’s usually because your brain’s supply of glucose has been depleted. Protein is the best source of glucose because it releases slowly into your bloodstream unlike sugar or carbs which spike and crash. ENERGYbits® spirulina tablets are 64% protein – the highest concentration of protein in the world (3x steak). No spike and no crash. You just feel “fresh and alert” all day. Sweet.
2. DHA to Protect your Brain
ENERGYbits contain a high concentration of DHA, an Omega-3 fatty acid that reduces inflammation and supports brain health. DHA activates the growth of new brain cells, protects existing ones, facilitates brain cell communication and protects your brain’s neurons and myelin sheaths. That’s a lot of responsibilities so make sure you get enough DHA to keep your brain humming and happy!
3. B Vitamins to Provide Mental Energy to your Brain
When the mental fatigue of the workday kicks in, your first reaction might be to reach for a coffee or an energy drink in hopes that the caffeine or sugar boost will give you the energy you need to focus on your work. But caffeine or sugar are just short term solutions that provide a burst of energy followed by a crash. Sugar is particularly damaging to your health and not only creates an insulin spike, it can contribute to metabolic disorders that can lead to chronic illnesses like diabetes. The better, healthier solution for your mental boost is a handful of ENERGYbits. Our spirulina tablets have NO sugar and NO caffeine and the energy boost they give you is simply a result of their dense nutrition and high B vitamins. No rush and no crash. Just a natural wake up.
4. GLA for your Mental Focus
GLA is an essential fatty acid that is critical for brain health and development. Only mother’s milk has more GLA than spirulina algae. This essential fatty acid contributes to the doubling in size of a newborn baby’s brain during their first year. But it’s not just babies who need GLA. Adults need it too! So if you want to keep your brain inflammation low and your mental performance high, be sure you are getting enough GLA every day. Unfortunately, most of us don’t, which is why taking ENERGYbits every day can improve both your short term thinking and long term brain health.
5. Iron for your Alertness
ENERGYbits spirulina tablets have the most concentrated source of bioavailable iron in the world. Iron is critical for learning, memory and brain development and is responsible for carrying oxygen in your bloodstream. If you are iron deficient, your brain and body fatigue quickly and prevent you from thinking or functioning at optimum levels. ENERGYbits contain 48 times more iron than raw spinach and 28 times more iron than beef liver and since all this iron is plant-based, if your body doesn’t need it, you simply don’t absorb it. This is an important benefit especially for men who may be wary of increasing their iron in contrast to iron supplements have been known to lead to iron toxicity. This doesn’t happen with plant-based iron like that found in spirulina which is why ENERGYbits are a far safer and healthier source of iron and for increasing your alertness.
6. Antioxidants for your Mental Vitality
ENERGYbits contain a high concentration of natural antioxidants (1,000x cherries) in the form of beta-carotene as well as zinc, manganese, selenium, copper, and vitamin E which are all essential for mental vitality. Antioxidants not only protect your brain cells from free radical damage, they also improve cognitive skills and we all could use more of that!
7. Nitric Oxide Increases Oxygen to your Brain
ENERGYbits provide naturally occurring nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is what opens the blood vessels so blood can flow easier and this allows oxygen and all the other great nutrients in ENERGYbits to quickly reach your brain, improve your concentration and give you a boost. Woosh.
8. Alkaline pH for Brain Health
Our body and brain need to maintain a neutral pH in order to be healthy. But most of us are eating foods that are processed or full of sugar. This puts a toxic and acidic load on our immune system which must work harder to reestablish a neutral pH. Alkaline food (like ENERGYbits algae) help bring your body and brain pH back to homeostasis faster so your immune system isn’t compromised. A healthy immune system is always good for brain health!
