Based in Boston, EnergyBits offers an exciting new line of nutrient dense tablets (bits) composed of two types of algae, spirulina and chlorella. Athletes have been the early adopters of taking these algae tablets and widely report more energy, more stamina, easier toning, and shorter recovery times. Health conscious consumers and people looking for a natural way to lose weight are now beginning to discover these products too.
Although NASA astronauts and Olympic athletes have been eating spirulina and chorella for decades, most Americans have never heard of these amazing superfoods. Therefore, a big part of the company’s early focus has been on educating the American public on the exceptional nutritional profile of both spirulina and chlorella.
EnergyBits has quickly gained a reputation as a company with revolutionary foresight and has the potential to impact the health of millions of Americans. In 2015, the CEO, Catharine Arnston, was runner up for Entrepreneur Magazine’s coveted “Entrepreneur of the Year” award (now called Project Grow), gaining her instant worldwide recognition and $15,000 she could invest in her start-up company.
Catharine’s road to success can be found through the love she has for her younger sister who was diagnosed with breast cancer. After the doctor suggested that a highly alkaline diet could help her sister recover, Catharine began doing intensive research to figure out which foods were the most alkaline. This is when she discovered that algae was one of the most alkaline and most nutritious foods a person can consume. She also discovered that algae could give athletes and others added vitality, far more than any energy drink or energy bar on the market.
EnergyBits currently offers four products. ENERGYbits contain spirulina as the only ingredient. They are aimed at athletes and anyone who who wants to get healthy. SKINNYbits also contain spirulina as the only ingredient. There were created for individuals who wanted to lose weight in a healthy natural way and feel full and satisfied while doing so. RECOVERYbits contain chlorella as the only ingredient. They help people recover after intense workouts and detoxify their bodies. VITALITYbits contain both spirulina and chlorella so they are an easy way to combine the benefits of both types of algae. All products are organically grown, non-GMO, sugar-free, gluten-free, and would work on a low-carb diet or a paleo diet. All ingredients are processed in a way that increases their bioavailability. They come in a resealable foil bag that keeps them fresh. They come in a stylish travel tin which is easy to carry in a purse or backpack.
One of the biggest advantages to all of the EnergyBits products is convenience. Because of their tablet form, an entire serving can be taken quickly with a glass of water. The website does mention you could also chew them if you like a grassy flavor and jokes that it would not be hard to get kids to do so because it would make their mouths turn bright green. Could EnergyBits start a trend?
Another huge advantage of EnergyBits is the relatively low cost of these products compared to other healthy foods. The company makes the point that each bag of EnergyBits gives the same spectrum and quantity of nutrition as thirty grocery carts filled with vegetables and fruits. Eating the equivalent of your organic greens and other veggies has never been so inexpensive.
EnergyBits is already a huge success story and it is well poised to become an even greater success. While the Japanese have been consuming algae on a daily basis for decades, the citizens of the United States are a virtually untapped market for this sensible and convenient nutrient dense food.
