ENERGYbits Review, Giveaway, and Discount Code

DISCLAIMER: I was sent a trial of ENERGYbits to sample in exchange for an honest review.

I recently had the opportunity to sample ENERGYbits 100% spirulina algae bits.  They are small bits of pressed algae that you swallow like a vitamin.   They are a whole food source of algae protein, and contain only organically grown spirulina.  Spirulina is a super food which is a great source of protein as well as a source of iron, antioxidants, a multitude of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, and electrolytes.

From one of the informational cards they sent me: “We are committed to your health.  That’s why all our ENERGYbits are 100% pure, organically grown, certified NON GMO algae that contains no sugar, caffeine, gluten, additives, animal products, chemicals or fillers of any kind.  ENERGYbits are 100% pure spirulina algae that has 64% protein, 40 nutrients, and GLA (an Omega 3), all for just one calorie per.  Remember, they are not pills.  They are BITS of green food (algae is a crop that is grown hydroponically, harvested and air dried like other crops).”

ENERGYbits are recommended as a pre-workout snack, when you’re hungry, or when you just need a little boost of energy.  I took them on days when I was working and cleaning at home.  I didn’t really notice any appetite-suppressing effect, but they were a very clean source of energy.

I was pleased with my experience with ENERGYbits.  I wasn’t feeling well and was working a lot on the days they sent them.  They gave me a subtle natural energy that helped me get through my day without feeling exhausted or needing a nap.  They don’t come on strong like energy shots or synthetic supplements.  You can definitely tell that it is a food-based source of protein.  If you’re looking for a quick heavy jolt, these aren’t going to be your thing, but if you want consistent energy in a natural and healthy way, I recommend trying them.  It was also an easy way to up my protein intake and my consumption of superfoods.

The down side: you have to swallow 30 bits for one dose.  I don’t have many problems swallowing pills so I took them 5 at a time.  For some people I can see where this would be a turn-off.  They also stink.  They smell like fish food.  This was my first time consuming spirulina so I don’t know if it always smells bad, but these definitely do.

There is also the cost.  $115 for a 1,000 count bag.  I really enjoyed the product and am planning to order some when I can afford it.  Although they work well, this price tag isn’t in everybody’s budget.

The folks at ENERGYbits were kind enough to offer a discount for my blog readers.  You can order ENERGYbits at www.energybits.com.  When ordering ENERGYbits simply use the coupon code BLOG in the coupon box for a 10% discount.
