A few weeks ago, I was sent a sample to try from a company called Energy Bits. I had been following the company on Twitter for awhile, seen the various other reviews of the product, and was curious. So I browsed the company’s website, learned a bit more about the product, and then requested a sample.
I have a serious Diet Coke addiction – and use the caffeine to power me thru the afternoon slump at work, workouts, and those days when I haven’t had much sleep. And while the caffeine in Diet Coke does the trick, I know all the artificial flavors and sweeteners are not good for my body. Energy Bits promised to give me an extra push without putting anything unnatural in my body. The bits are 100% algae.
The sample arrived about 3 days after I requested it. I loved that the company sent the sample as well as a plethora of information about the product. The bits arrived in a cute little tin that I slipped into my pocketbook so that I would have them on hand when I needed an extra boost of energy.
Tuesday night was a nearly sleepless night for me – I was up every hour on the hour – so by 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, I could feel myself nodding off at my desk. Remembering the bits, I reached for a dose. I should note that the bits have a somewhat unpleasant smell (but so do vitamins…blech) and a distinct taste. I opted to take the bits with some orange juice to mask the taste. It worked. There was a hint of the taste but it dissipated quickly.
And my energy levels were much higher afterwards. I was able to power thru the rest of the afternoon, a workout, and a few hours of housework – something I’ve never been able to do when tired. Just to be sure it wasn’t a fluke – I skipped all caffeinated products on Thursday, and took another dose of Energy Bits when the afternoon slump hit. Once again, my energy levels went up and I was able to do all the things I needed to do!
I would definitely recommend Energy Bits to anyone – athletes or otherwise – who is look for a natural way to get an energy boost. If you are interested or want more information, click over to their site for more details.
FTC Disclosure: I received a free sample of energy bits. However, I was not asked to do a review of the product. I chose to review of my own accord, all opinions and thoughts contained in this post are my own.
