Protect Your Health & The Women You Love With Algae

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Eliminating breast cancer is something we feel passionate about since most of our ENERGYbits® team (and their families) have been affected by this disease.

This blog post will hopefully help you and your loved ones learn how to protect yourself, especially since breast cancer is now the most common cancer worldwide – accounting for 12% of all new annual cancer cases, according to the World Health Organization [1].

Unfortunately, 1 in 8 women in the USA (about 13%) will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime [1]. Although it’s mostly found in women, men can get breast cancer too (1% of breast cancer is in men) [2]. This means you or someone very close to you will be part of this statistic.

But cancer affects more than just the individual. It impacts your entire family, loved ones and friends. That’s why we have some easy and scientifically proven ways to boost and protect your health so you can avoid a cancer diagnosis or recover faster if you have one. Spoiler alert. It’s algae tablets!

How is Cancer Caused?

All cancer is caused by changes or mutations to the DNA within cells. Every DNA contains a set of instructions that tells the cell what functions to perform including how to grow and divide. Errors in the instructions can cause the cell to stop its normal functions and become cancerous [3].

Most gene mutations occur after you’re born  (they are usually not inherited). The things that cause gene mutations include smoking, radiation, viruses, toxins, stress, chemicals, obesity, hormones, chronic inflammation and a lack of exercise [3].

Straight forward, right? But knowing the cause of gene mutations isn’t enough. You need to proactively avoid them. And that’s the hard part. We live in a world that is stressful and toxic and this throws a wrench in your plan to be healthy and cancer- free. Right?

But the good news is that we have an easy solution for you… algae tablets!

Algae For Prevention, Protection and Recovery

Spirulina and chlorella algae are two of the most extraordinary foods on the planet and are scientifically proven to be the easiest, fastest, most nutrient-dense, toxin-free, sustainable food in the world.  Algae helps to improve your energy, health and most importantly – it strengthens’ your immune system and removes toxins so it helps your body be healthy and resist disease.

Algae is a food safe for the whole family. It boosts immune system and removes toxins so it helps your body resist disease

Both spirulina and chlorella algae are packed with 40+ vitamins, minerals, protein chlorophyll and other nutrients like antioxidants and phytonutrients that help protect your body.  Want to learn how they do it? Get your pencil and paper ready for a deep dive into the science of algae and how it helps your body stay healthy!

Algae’s Antioxidants Prevent Oxidative Damage

Antioxidants are substances that inhibit the oxidation process so they act as protective agents by protecting the body from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals attack healthy cells, which changes their DNA and can trigger abnormal cells and tumors to grow [4].

Studies have shown that spirulina and chlorella algae help to reduce/reverse the growth of cancer cells due to algae’s high levels of antioxidants [5]. Pretty remarkable if you ask us!

Algae has an abundance of nutrients and high antioxidants to fight off cancer causing free radicals and oxidative stress.

If you thought blueberries were the gold standard for antioxidants… think again! Spirulina algae has 14X times more antioxidants than blueberries [6]. One of spirulina’s most  powerful antioxidant’s is the blue pigment called phycocyanin. This amazing pigment is only found in spirulina and not only does it fight free radicals (the bad guys), it also inhibits the production of inflammatory signaling molecules. We know that sounds geeky but what it basically means is that phycocyanin stops free radicals AND stops inflammation, so it is a powerful two-punch that effortlessly keeps you healthy [7].

Phycocyanin has other amazing anti-cancer properties that are also proven by science. One of the most powerful is that it has “antiangiogenics properties” -which means it stops the growth of blood vessels to cancer and tumor cells [8]. That’s pretty impressive. No wonder spirulina is considered a super food.

Spirulina algae has almost 15x the antioxidants that blueberries have!

If the benefits of phycocyanin didn’t give you enough reason to start taking spirulina every day we have more good news! Spirulina algae also helps boost your energy/focus and satisfy hunger for just ONE calorie per tablet WITHOUT sugar, caffeine, chemicals or  gluten.  Want to drop a few pounds, try a keto diet or do intermittent fasting  without hunger. Spirulina tablets like ENERGYbits® or BEAUTYbits® are your solution. Fast, easy, keto and vegan and nutrient dense.  No work. Nada. Just swallow and go. It just doesn’t get any better or easier.

Spirulina algae has the highest protein in the world (64% protein) and this satisfies your hunger. You get energy from  the high B vitamins which convert the protein to energy and the high iron which carries oxygen in our blood which wakes up your brain and body. And if that wasn’t enough great news, consider that spirulina also contains high amounts of essential fatty acids to help reduce inflammation; high chlorophyll to help heal cells walls and 40+ other nutrients.

Algae is a great source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Research shows it to be effective at removing toxins and improving many health conditions. ENERGYbits® offers a high-quality source of both chlorella and spirulina.

Algae Helps Remove Toxins that Can Cause Cancer

There have been 80,000 toxic chemicals released into the world since WWII [9] and this number of environmental hazards/spills (radiation leaks, oil tanker spills, etc.) continues to increase.

The toxins in our world are escalating at the same time that food nutrition is plummeting. Our food simply is not as nutritious as it was fifty years ago. Most of it is made with high heat, sugar and unhealthy oils like canola oil that collectively cause cellular damage and inflammation. Even if you are eating whole foods like vegetables,  you still aren’t being properly nourished because our soils are so overcropped, the plants growing in them aren’t nourished or nourishing either   [10].

Eat chlorella algae to detox and cleanse your cells from the harsh chemicals and toxins we are exposed to daily.

The bottom line is that your body is missing critical nutrients and being flooded with toxins. This “perfect storm” weakens your immune system so you are more susceptible to disease like breast cancer.

Something needs to change.

It is essential to nourish your body, remove the toxins (that are already there silently causing damage) and proactively prevent more from entering [11].  

Fortunately, there is a simple, proven way to do this- chlorella algae.

Chlorella has been used worldwide for decades by doctors, biological dentists, and functional/holistic wellness practitioners to remove toxins because it is a natural, safe,  powerful and plant-based [12].

Chlorella’s hard cell wall attaches to toxins and safely removes them. Chlorella also has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world and chlorophyll has been scientifically proven for decades to be cleansing and healing. Chlorophyll builds your blood, your immune system, your cellular health, your gut health and help remove toxins at the cellular level, including your liver [13]. Not only does this cleanse your body, chlorophyll has an alkaline pH so it helps balance the pH of your body so nourishing, healing oxygen can be restored in your cells.

Taking RECOVERYbits® chlorella algae tablets every day is like giving your body a shower from the inside! Not only does chlorella cleanse and nourish your cell, it helps keep your immune system strong so it can fight viruses, bacteria and help prevent diseases like cancer [15].

Algae’s Healthy Alkaline pH

Acidic foods like sugar, dairy, processed foods or animal protein and environmental stresses like toxins, pollution, chemicals and pesticides cause the pH of our blood and cells to become acidic and out of balance [16].

An acidic pH creates an ideal environment for pathogens to thrive, reduces the level of oxygen at the cellular level and encourages abnormal cell growth. This suppresses the immune system and allows bacteria, viruses, or carcinogenic process to manifest [17]. When your cells are too acidic, toxins can’t be removed, mitochondria get damaged, their cellular communication and health deteriorates and over time this can lead to disease like cancer.

Algae is the most alkaline food in the world!

Algae is the most alkaline food in the world so it can easily and quickly counterbalance all of the acidic food you are eating like dairy, sugar, gluten or animal protein. Algae instantly and naturally  helps to restore your cells, blood and body to their healthy neutral, alkaline pH.  This is critical if you want to prevent inflammation, germs, and disease like cancer. In fact in the 1940’s a Nobel Prize was awarded to Dr. Otto Warburg for discovering that cancer cannot exist in an oxygen-rich, alkaline environments. Cancer can only grow in an acidic cellular environment . That’s why  algae can be a game changer for your life. It might even save it [18].

Chlorella’s Unique Nutrient

Chlorella also contains a remarkable nutrient called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). This powerful nutrient cannot be found anywhere else and has the remarkable ability to speed the growth of your healthy cells by 4x everyday [19].  Chlorella algae also has the highest concentration of RNA/DNA in the world.

Why is this important?

Because healthy cellular growth is essential to your own healthy growth. And CGF has the remarkable and natural ability to do this. It has been shown to renew and restore cellular growth/repair faster and better than anything else which is why it helps keep you healthy and disease-free [20].

As we age, our mitochondria (where our cell’s energy is made) gradually die or become damaged and this is a big contributor to fatigue and disease. Chlorella helps to stop and reverse this damage. CGF has also been shown to improve resistanceto abdominal tumors and increases the number of immune cells [21].  

Are you sold on algae yet? We sure hope so! It’s the easiest, fastest, proven, plant-based food that nourishes and protects your body. Taking algae tablets every day is like having “nutrition insurance” and will help you feel safe, protected and at peace. Don’t you want that?
