ALGAE - THE SUPERSTAR OF SUPERFOODS! Essential Nutrients for Health and Beauty

Print
1 2 3

Somewhere within nature and the gifts she bestowed upon the earth lie the secrets of health and beauty. And there are many secrets, with lots of ancient health remedies and beauty regimens that we lost in our modern era, which are largely based on chemically enhanced treatments and solutions. When we delve back into the simplicity and expanse of Mother Nature, we see what more she has to offer us!  

 

 

Sometimes, we exercise and eat well, get the rest we need, but something is still missing- because there is always more to learn about our body and how we can keep up our desired momentum through life. Our body is a vast system with many functions and processes that all depend on each other for optimum health and vitality- the more we increase our knowledge and awareness of our body, the better placed we are to make good choices for our long term health and beauty. 
Natural supplements are ever on the increase, and this is a good thing because we need more solutions and remedies that are convenient and work with our body in a more fluid, supportive way. But what if we could just focus a little more on actual foods that are powerful in their own right? In essence, we should aim to use our calorie intake more wisely. 

There are many superfoods such as blueberries, goji berries, chia, broccoli, kale and much more… that offer maximum nutrition. Foods that are termed “nutrient-dense or nutrient-rich” carry the highest amount and widest variety of nutrients…so when we think of where our calorie intake is going, we should focus on these foods! 
 

Here are some foods that are packed full of natural goodness, and even in small amounts they could make all the difference to your health, beauty, and overall vitality. 

 

SALMON

Salmon and other types of oily fish such as mackerel and tuna are loaded with Omega 3’s that are essential for brain function/cognition, lowering the risk of heart disease and other diseases such as Alzheimer’s, reducing inflammation, having a healthy liver, and among many other benefits, Omega 3’s are also essential for healthy looking skin. Salmon is particularly high in Omega 3 fatty acids as well as many other vitamins and a mineral like magnesium, selenium and B vitamins, and it is high in protein too. Two portions of oily fish per week like salmon are highly recommended for the uptake of the essential nutrients it offers. 

 

 


SEAWEED- VEGETABLES OF THE SEA!

Seaweed is a rich anti-oxidant, high in vitamins A, C, and E (plus many more) and helps reduce inflammation. (Many diseases and chronic conditions are a result of too much inflammation in the body). Seaweed is a particularly unique food because it is high in Iodine – a nutrient necessary for optimal thyroid functioning. The thyroid gland is responsible for managing the body’s metabolism, releasing energy producing hormones, growth and cell repair.  It has a lot to do! You don’t need a lot of iodine and you take it using a dropper (just a few drops per day) but if you don’t like the taste, another simple option is to simply put a few drops on your skin each day and allow it to absorb. This may, in fact, be the ideal way to take iodine because your body will only absorb the amount of iodine it needs and ensures you will never take too much of it.  

 


 

ALGAE - THE SUPERSTAR OF SUPERFOODS!

But enough about seaweed because it can’t hold a candle to what is truly the superstar superfood – algae.

There are over 25,000 strains of algae but there are only two strains of algae that are harvested as food crops and are rapidly gaining the spotlight as the most important plant-based food for the 21st century.  We’re going to explain why algae is attracting so much buzz from celebrities, nutritionists, athletes, moms, and busy health-conscious consumers.  But first, we need to explain how algae differs from seaweed.

The seaweed that you eat and buy in stores is grown in the OCEAN.  In contrast, the algae that you eat and buy in stores grown as an agricultural crop that is grown “hydroponically” in FRESH WATER tanks. Hydroponic agriculture has been used for decades to grow many types of vegetables and it is very important to understand that the algae you purchase is NOT from the ocean. That’s why if you choose a high-quality algae supplier you can be assured there will be NO toxins in it and if you purchase your algae from a high-quality supplier, it may very well be the safest, purest, most nutrient dense food you’ll ever put in your body or your children’s bodies.  This also helps explain why doctors and nutritionists also love algae. But to get these benefits you need to purchase your algae from a high-quality company (we’ll suggest one to you later in this article.)

 OK, so let's get to the juicy stuff and learn why you need to be taking algae!
 

ALGAE IS THE PERFECT FOOD

Algae was the first life on earth four billion years ago but it wasn’t really discovered as a nutrient-dense, protein-rich food until the late 1800s and it wasn’t harvested on a large scale until the 1950s.  Virtually the entire algae industry is based in Asia where it has been grown for over fifty years and is a multi-billion dollar industry. In fact, algae agriculture is so well established there, it is almost as large an industry there as the beef industry is here. Algae farms are often the size of 3-4 football stadiums and the technology to grow the algae is very advanced.  Consumers in Japan or most of the other Asian countries don’t take vitamins or supplements every day as we do in the USA. They take algae every day because it boosts their immune system, helps prevent chronic illness, helps stop colds, provides natural energy and focus, improves athletic activities, removes toxins, promotes longevity and anti-aging and even reduces wrinkles. The Japanese are well known for their health and longevity. Could it be the algae? We think so! 

Algae has been sold in the USA for the last fifty years too but unfortunately, very few people here know about it. That all changed ten years ago.


ONE WOMAN'S DREAM OF A HEALTHY PLANET

Catharine Arnston founded ENERGYbits ten years ago after her younger sister had been diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist to change her diet to an alkaline diet because it would help her heal. Catharine immediately sprung into action to help her sister research alkaline foods and along the way, discovered algae. When Catharine learned that algae was the most alkaline, chlorophyll-rich, high protein food in the world, had been used for fifty years in Asia and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world but was virtually unknown outside of Asia, she knew she had stumbled onto something big (and yes her sister fully recovered). 

ENERGYbits® is committed to bringing algae into the mainstream where it is desperately needed because our world is toxic, our oceans are polluted, our soil is lifeless, our children are nutrient deprived, our athletes are fueled with sugar and our rates of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes are skyrocketing. 
Algae can help stop all of this. This single-cell, high-protein, chlorophyll-rich, sustainable super-food removes toxins and helps prevent or reverse most chronic disease. 

Algae is the most nutritionally dense and most scientifically studied food in the world. But until ENERGYbits® came along, algae’s extraordinary health benefits (documented in almost 100,000 studies after decades of research) have never made their way out of the scientific community and into the mainstream. Catharine and ENERGYbits® have worked tirelessly for the last ten years, traveling the country, educating consumers, giving presentations, speaking on podcasts, designing friendly packaging and creating educational materials to help bridge the enormous knowledge gap about algae. Their efforts have worked. Consumers in America are finally starting to realize algae is a keto, vegan, sustainable food crop that uniquely and safely fills their family and children’s nutritional gaps, ensures optimal health and provides peak performance naturally without sugar, chemicals, processing or toxins. 
You may not know much or indeed anything about algae but algae is part of the current “plant-based revolution.” In fact, algae is finally being recognized as a crop so critical to the health of the USA that the US Congress just passed the first “ Algae Agriculture Act” as part of the Farm Bill signed into law by the President on  January 3rd, 2019. The bill includes incentives for American farmers to grow algae here and reinforces that fact that algae is food, not a supplement.  Algae has been an essential crop in Asia for fifty years and is on the cusp of finally becoming a national nutritional phenomenon here too. Do you want to know why?  

Below are just a few of the many amazing facts about the two major algae you need to be aware of and taking every day: 1) spirulina and 2) chlorella.


SPIRULINA

Algae was the first food on earth and 4 billion years later it still offers the most complete nutritional profile of any food which is why  NASA [8] has used and endorsed algae [9] for decades.  Spirulina algae is regarded as “one of the most protective, functional and healing foods of the 21st century and boasts an unmatched nutrient profile and benefits. [1]

Spirulina has the highest concentration of protein [2] in the world and its powerhouse of 40 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants [22] and other nutrients [3] work synergistically and naturally to elevate energy, improve mental focus [15] enhance skin & hair health [14], athletic performance [17] boost vitality, reduce inflammation [16] and support optimal health.  In 1974 the United Nations [18] even identified spirulina as the answer to world hunger [4]. Wow.

The knowledge of spirulina’s health benefits has been documented for fifty years in over 25,000 scientific studies so there is no question that spirulina’s benefits are all evidence-based and contribute to your longevity and optimal health. With our food supply and environment so toxic and our health suffering, instead of asking yourself why you and your family should take algae every day, maybe you should be asking yourself why wouldn’t you! 

 

 


CHLORELLA

Chlorella algae (RECOVERYbits®) is world recognized for its wellness and  medicinal properties [5] including its unique ability to answer to world hunger [4].including mercury and lead.  Chlorella algae has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world. Chlorophyll is what makes plants green and it is essential for cellular health, cleansing your body and helping to prevent disease like cancer [10] or lung disease [12].

Chlorella also has high amounts of bio-available iron, RNA/DNA, chlorella growth factor, and forty other vitamins and minerals that help to boost your immune system, speed cellular renewal, support mitochondria function, reduce aging [11] accelerates recovery [20] from athletics and improve eye health [13]. Chlorella even removes alcohol so it helps reduce hangovers.

Chlorella algae also contains a rare source of natural Vitamin K2 [24] which supports heart and bone health[19]  and skin health [21]. In fact, recent research has found that heart disease is due to the calcification of your blood vessels. Only Vitamin K2 can remove this calcium out of your blood vessels and move it into your bones where it should be.  To learn more about Vitamin K2 is and why everyone is deficient in it, check out the book called Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox, which you can purchase on Amazon.

Take a handful of chlorella tablets every night or after a workout to flood your body with its healing, cleansing recovery, and biohack properties. You can swallow or snack on them either alone or with macadamia nuts, blended with smoothies, added salads, trail mix or anything you like. We love them with slices of fruit or even dark chocolate and sea salt. Yum.

Catharine and ENERGYbits® knew that you might have a hard time pronouncing or remembering what these two algae were and they also wanted you to be sure you knew that algae wasn’t new or strange. But it may be new to YOU. And just like chia, flax seed or quinoa, she realized it might take a while for you to wrap your tongue around these tongue twister names. Catharine and ENERGYbits®  made it REALLY easy for you by using friendly brand names which make it SO much easier to understand what each of their algae does!

•    ENERGYbits® are spirulina tablets that improve energy, focus and satisfy hunger. 

•    BEAUTYbits® are spirulina tablets that boost skin and hair health and

We value health, honesty, and quality and if you value these too, you will be in good hands with us and with our algae”- Catharine Arnston Founder/CEO ENERGYbits® 

 

 

WHY ALGAE TABLETS ARE BETTER FOR YOU THEN SUPPLEMENTS

Supplements are made in labs from artificial ingredients that are difficult for your body to recognize and absorb. In contrast, algae is a food crop similar to broccoli so your body recognizes all the nutrients and absorbs them far easier and faster than a supplement. The nutrients in algae are 99% bioavailable, which means your body has access to the nutrition almost instantly. ENERGYbits algae is essentially a highly nutritious food. 

  • You can take ENERGYbits® algae at any time of day but they are recommended for use in the morning to help you wake up for your busy day and to give your skin and hair a healthy boost. 

  • They are ideal if you take them before a run or any athletic or mental activity, or whenever are hungry or tired, before a meal if you want to eat less, or even as a meal replacement if you are watching your weight. 

  • ENERGYbits®  algae tabs can be added to give your favorite smoothie more of a nutritious kick… it is a highly versatile food that you can get creative with! 

 

ENERGYbits® algae tablets can be chewed or swallowed or added to anything from smoothies to trail mix and whatever you add them to will boost your protein, chlorophyll, nutrients, and health almost instantly.  A single serving is 30 tablets but even 4-5 tablets can make a difference in how you feel. RECOVERYbits® taste like a soy nut and taste terrific eaten with macadamia nuts or almonds or added as a garnish to salads. But you can grind them up and add them to smoothies or swallow them if you don’t like the taste. 

If you are a busy professional, mom, athlete or student and you need something to carry with you that will safely and easily boost your energy, health and vitality ENERGYbits® algae tablets are the answer! The large bags of 1,000 tablets that are sold at www.energybits.com each come with a cute travel tin inside each bag, which you can fill up every day and carry with you in your handbag, gym bag or pocket.
