Super foods, Chlorella and Spirulina have been studied for decades. Often algae is studied as a potential food source or for various health benefits. Even NASA studied Chlorella algae as a means of sustainable food and oxygen production in space.
Bits® are plant-based nutrition tablets made purely of algae – a sustainable whole food crop that supports your body naturally.

It all began with a podcast! This is where I was first introduced to Catharine Arnston and these products! Click Here
An Introduction to Algae ~ What it is and Why You Need it Now More than Ever
What if we told you there was such a food that grows on earth that is vegan, paleo, keto, endorsed by the United Nations as the answer to world hunger and endorsed by NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world. Would you be interested in learning about it?
And what if we also told you that this food was scientifically proven through tens of thousands or research studies to strengthen your immune system (for COVID-19 protection) reduce aging/chronic disease, remove heavy metals, repair RNA/DNA, provide natural energy, boost your skin and hair AND give you more nutrients and vitamins than any other food on the planet.
Would you believe us?
And what if we also told you this food was the first life on earth 3 billion years ago, had an amino acid/nutrient profile virtually identical to mother’s breast milk. And what if we told you this food was so popular in Asia where it’s been used for fifty years, that it is a multi-billion-dollar agricultural crop there (and almost as big as the beef industry here). And what if we also told you it was the most eco-friendly, sustainable crop in the world. Would you be interested in learning what it was? Great because we’re about to tell you…. It’s algae! And don’t worry, if you haven’t heard about algae before now. It’s been under the radar for fifty years but is on the cusp of becoming bigger than CBD oil so let’s get started…
The field of epigenetics has proven that our health and DNA are directly impacted by what we eat- in other words, our food literally speaks to our cells. However, over the last fifty years our food has become stripped of nutrients, our soil has become lifeless, our oceans have become polluted, our bodies have become saturated with toxins and our children have become nutrient-deprived. And it’s getting worse. No wonder our bodies, mind and earth are so sick. Chronic disease, global warming and viruses plague us. Clearly, we need to make a change.
Coronavirus is a Wake-Up Call
The coronavirus is a wake-up call for us to treat our bodies and our environment better. We need to say no to more chemicals, remove the toxins that are already in our bodies, clean up our earth, eat more nutrient dense food and care for ourselves and our environment better. In short. We need more self-care and earth- care. Do you agree? If so, we invite you to take a look at how algae can help do all of this and more.
What Exactly is Algae?
Algae is a plant. It has grown on earth for over 4 billion years and is a multi-billion-dollaragricultural crop in Asia. Algae is so safe and nutrient dense, it’s fed to newborns in Japan to keep them alive if they can’t digest mother’s breastmilk. This may be partly explained by the fact that the amino acid profile of spirulina algae is virtually identical to mother’s milk. Algae may not be well known by you (yet!) but it’s definitely well known in the scientific, nutrition and functional medicine world where it is the most studied food in the world. There are almost 100,000 studies documenting the health benefits of algae. But until the COVID-19 crisis and the urgent need for natural solutions like algae most of these studies have never made it out of the scientific community and into the general consumer world. Fortunately they are now and if you want to read a few of the tens of thousands studies and clinical trials that document algae’s health benefits and ability to strengthen the immune system visit www.energybits.com.
Two Main Types of Algae ~ Spirulina & Chlorella
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is world recognized for its unmatched nutrient profile. Spirulina has been used for decades for energy, focus and hunger. Spirulina is an energizing algae that contains over forty vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids. Amazingly, it contains 64% protein, the highest concentration of protein in the world (three times the protein as steak).
All the protein in spirulina is already in the amino acid form. Both spirulina (and chlorella) contain eighteen of the twenty amino acids, including all nine aminos the body can’t produce, making it a complete protein. Equally important, the aminos in spirulina are unstructured so they are instantly and easily absorbed. This compares to animal protein which can take up to 3 days to be digested and absorbed as aminos and you usually end up absorbing only 10% unlike spirulina which is 99% bioavailable.
Spirulina also boasts more beta carotene than carrots, more iron than spinach, more antioxidants than blueberries, and more calcium than milk. No wonder it’s considered “efficient nutrition.”
The blue pigment in spirulina has also been found to help prevent the replication of viruses including coronavirus and you can learn more about this at www.energybits.com
Health Benefits of Spirulina:
- Provides a good source of protein and can help satisfy hunger
- Provides natural energy and improves athletic performance
- Boosts your beauty from within – helps your hair and nails grow
- Helps to prevent wrinkles and creates vibrant, glowing skin
- Acts as an antioxidant and fights off free radicles to prevents against chronic illness
- Helps reduce inflammation
- Improves your brain health to help prevent against neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s
Chlorella, a green algae, is world recognized for its wellness abilities, medicinal properties and its ability to remove heavy metals like mercury, lead and radiation. Chlorella also has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world (200 x more chlorophyll than spinach and even more than liquid chlorophyll).
Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants and its chemical composition is virtually identical to hemoglobin (red blood cells). If that isn’t the biggest clue in the world how important chlorophyll is, we don’t know what is! And Chlorella algae has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world. Yup. The highest!
Chlorophyll is so essential for a strong immune system, cleansing your body and helping to reduce or prevent chronic disease that during WW II when they ran out of blood for blood transfusions, the injured were given liquid chlorophyll and they healed just as fast.
If you want a strong immune system or aren’t getting your daily greens, chlorophyll will be a critical addition to your diet and fortunately chlorella algae has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world. That’s why you might want to jump on this. We sure are! Chlorella is also a rare source of Vitamins B2, B12 and K2, all which are easily absorbed in the body.
Health Benefits of Chlorella:
- Helps your RNA/DNA and protect telomers which help with aging
- Boost Immune System and natural killer cells
- Helps facilitate better sleep, naturally
- Can help control blood sugar levels
- Detoxes your cells and body from toxins and heavy metals
- Improves your bone health to help prevent against osteoporosis
- Improves heart health to help prevent against heart disease
- Helps stabilize blood pressure
- Both spirulina and chlorella contain the anti-viral nutrients your body needs to defend you from pathogens and viruses including COVID-19
