If you are one of those rare people who can stick to their New Year’s Resolutions year after year, you deserve to be applauded! But the truth is that most of us make commitments and promises to ourselves that are often broken after a few weeks.

Studies have shown that approximately 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail and since most resolutions are about health, fitness or a healthier diet, we have a simple mantra that has been proven to help others get on track and stay there. That mantra  is algae!.

Incorporating algae into your daily routine can vastly improve your mental health, physical health, nutritional health and overall well-being. How do we know? Because there are tens of thousands of scientific studies that prove it. Algae tablets are an  easy, proven way to help you accomplish your goals, whatever they are!

Here are just five ways algae can help so 2022 is your best year ever!

Algae Helps Keep the Stress Away

When we are overwhelmed and fatigued from inadequate nutrition, we have a much harder time sticking to our resolutions. If you’re too stressed to tackle your to-do list, it won’t get done. Did you know handful of spirulina can boost your mood, energy, and focus?  Just a few tablets will help you feel ready and able to tackle your chores. Promise.

In fact, an 8-week study on the effects of algae’s impact on mood documented its ability to significantly increased quality of life, mood, and attitude [1]. Another study found that spirulina could help prevent crashes caused by low blood glucose [2]. Sign us up for that!!

Spirulina algae also contains DHA, a fatty acid that is important for proper brain function and necessary for sustained attention, planning, and problem-solving [3].

As you can see algae is a no brainer! It is jam-packed with nutrients, proteins and minerals to help support your brain, your mood and your stress so that you can tackle those 2022 goals!

Detox and Replenish with Algae

Detoxing is a resolution we hear quite often, and it’s one that’s likely on your list too. But with so many toxins in our world, you really need to be detoxing all year round and not just after the holidays.

Toxins are everywhere. They’re in the foods we consume (yes even organic), in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the products we use on our bodies. The cumulative result of these toxins cause illness, inflammation aging and disease [4].

Chlorella algae like our RECOVERYbits® contains the highest concentration of chlorophyll which gives it a unique and powerful cleansing ability.

Even more powerful is chlorella algae’s ability to pull out heavy metals like mercury, lead or radiation. That’s why chlorella algae has been used for decades as a chelator and recovery solution [5].  Chlorella is able to do this because it’s hard cell wall attaches to toxins and pulls them out of cells, organs, and blood and carries them safely out of your body [6]. There is nothing else that can remove toxins as safely and naturally as chlorella algae.

But it’s not just external toxins from our environment that need to be removed daily, so do the toxins that are generated internally. Did you know that every day almost 30 trillion cells in your body die every day? Yup. It’s because your body is constantly remodeling itself and creating new cells. So what happens to the old, dead cells? Well, if you don’t remove them, they stay in your body, attract bacteria, clog your lymphatic system become toxic and acidic and this contributes to fatigue, brain fog, inflammation and even chronic disease. Yikes.  

Taking chlorella every day is like giving your body a shower from the inside! It gets rid of the toxins from the outside and inside. And as a bonus, it also floods your body, brain and immune system with forty vitamins and minerals to further improve your health and wellness [5].

Improve Your Energy and Performance with Algae

The holidays can sap our energy and boost our stress levels. It’s a bad combination that makes it hard to stay mentally energized let alone physically energized. And the prospect of sticking to a fitness routine? Pretty unlikely. Right?  

That’s why taking ENERGYbits® spirulina tablets daily is so important to help replenish and boost your mental and physical energy naturally. With more physical and mental energy, it will be easier to keep your resolution and inspiration stay fit, all day every day in 2022!

In fact there’s a reason why many fitness pros refer to pumping iron as the way to have a great workout. But algae outdoes it! Algae literally pumps protein and iron into your body, preparing your muscles, bones and cells for your workout and helping you to rebuild and recover after it.

Did you know spirulina algae is composed of 64% protein? There is nothing in the world with more protein than spirulina algae. Taking spirulina tablets like ENERGYbits before and after your workout is a sure way to improve your energy and performance [7]. Not only that, but protein is a critical macronutrient that fights off disease and keeps all of your systems strong and functioning optimally. Life is a race we want you to win and algae can help you!

Algae is also a fantastic source of iron. It even has 48% more iron than a serving of spinach. If Popeye had known this, we’re sure he would have been taking algae every day instead of spinach. And even better, if you don’t like the taste of spinach, we’ve got you covered! Simply swallow a few ENERGYbits spirulina tablets and you’re good to go! No need to cook, clean or even eat them. Just swallow with water and you are off to the races (literally!).

Speaking of races, iron is super important for runners because it help keep your red blood count high, which allows you to have more oxygen. Without oxygen absorption, your major organs and tissues cannot perform adequately at any time, but especially during exercise. Want to prevent burnout, injury and fatigue? Algae tablets are your perfect pre-workout fuel [8].

And for after your workout? Chlorella algae like RECOVERYbits® are great for recovery and detox since they pull out lactic acid and help you rebound and recover quickly [9]. Chlorella algae helps replenish cells and tissue quickly due to its high concentration of chlorophyll.  Definitely not something you can get from other artificial energy products. Another score for algae!

Restful Sleep with Algae

A lack of sleep can disrupt serotonin levels in the body leading to a bad night’s sleep as well as long term health problems including a weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, poor concentration, and mood swings [10].  Its super hard to keep new year’s resolutions when you are feeling groggy or depressed. And since we want you to have the best shot at achieving your goals this year, we have an awesome solution for you!  

Simply take chlorella algae tablets before going to bed! Chlorella (and spirulina) both contain high amounts of tryptophan, that facilitates sleep because it is the precursor to melatonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates sleep and mood [11].

Studies show that taking just one gram of tryptophan at bedtime can significantly improve the quality of your sleep [12].  RECOVERYbits chlorella algae has 1.24 grams of tryptophan per 100 grams, the highest concentration in any food – almost five times the amount found in turkey [13].

Bonus; during sleep, the space between cells increases, creating room for toxins to be flushed out [14].This system “opens” allowing more rapid flow of fluid throughout the brain and detox.

To make the most out of your sleep we recommend taking RECOVERYbits® chlorella before bed. You’ll awake refreshed, renewed, and ready to conquer your goals for the day!

Algae Helps Keep Cravings At Bay

Did you know that when your body craves something, it might be because you have a vitamin deficiency? For example, if you’re craving chocolate, you may be deficient in magnesium [15].

That’s why the first defense against cravings is to have all the nutrients you need. And since algae is the most nutrient-dense food in the world (even NASA says algae has 1,000 x more nutrients than any other fruit or vegetable), it is hands down the easiest, simplest way to keep your cravings away by giving your body the nutrients it needs.

Algae consumption has been proven to reduce cravings, boost metabolism, balance blood sugar, and even satisfy hunger [16]. And since algae tablets contain just one calorie per tablet, they might even help you shed some of your excess holiday weight. Sweet.

Algae tablets are mother nature’s multivitamin! Not only are they great source of bio-available, unprocessed vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants (40+ to be exact), they are also sustainable, ecofriendly, raw, vegan and keto.  Algae works hard so you don’t have to.

Adding either ENERGYbits® spirulina or RECOVERYbits® chlorella tablets to your daily routine are the easiest, most powerful way to get your new year resolutions off to a great start. And remember, they are effortless to take! No cooking, cleaning or even eating [17].  All for just one calorie per tablet.

Conclusion

Whether you have a long list if New Year’s Resolutions this year, or just want to experiment with a healthier, more sustainable way of living, algae is your answer! Adding algae tablets to your daily routine is a small change that will give you big results. Small is beautiful!
