Athletes Go Green this Valentine’s Day with ENERGYbits® Spirulina Algae

Protect Your Heart and the Environment with this Safe Source of Omega 3

Boston, MA, February 12, 2013: Valentine’s Day is known as a day full of heart-shaped chocolate boxes, even for athletes. But maybe this year they should focus on heart health instead.  The sobering reality is that sixty eight million adults in the USA have high blood pressure, seventy one million have high cholesterol, and one in three has cardiovascular disease. Even athletes. The good news is that  heart disease is slowly decreasing, thanks in part to Omega 3 which helps reduce all forms of heart disease. The bad news is that the skyrocketing demand for fish oil due to the popularity of Omega 3 has led to overfishing, an environmental crisis and entire fish species disappearing. A safer, more sustainable source of heart-healthy Omega 3 for athletes is urgently needed. Fortunately, Bits of Health Inc. has one. Algae.

Algae not only provides all the critical Essential Fatty Acids and Omega 3 found in fish oil, it is also the most nutrient-dense food in the world and has been used by NASA astronauts and Olympic athletes for decades. The only problem with algae is that most  Americans know nothing about it!  But the sustainability crisis caused by the mass over harvesting of fish oil has forced environmentalists and health professionals to find an alternate source of heart healthy Omega 3. One that doesn’t damage the oceans or pollute them with toxins.  Toxins have already created entire dead zones in The Gulf of Mexico and caused many of our current chronic diseases, including heart disease so a safer, more sustainable solution is clearly needed.  Fortunately it’s already here.

Bits of Health Inc., a four year old Boston based sports nutrition company is leading the charge to make algae’s heart benefits easy for athletes and consumers to understand, and safe to take. Algae is already a multibillion dollar industry in Asia, where it is prized for all its health benefits, including heart health. To get the word out about algae, Bits of Health Inc. has been working with hundreds of athletes including many in the NHL, NFL, MLB and Olympics. With the help of these athletes, they are getting their message out about the long list of health benefits that algae provides.  Their two brands, called ENERGYbits® and SKINNYbits® have won accolades nationwide from cardiologists, dieticians, triathletes, endurance athletes and consumers, not only for improving heart health and lowering blood pressure, but also for increasing energy and preventing mental fatigue, all naturally and all without caffeine, sugar or chemicals.

ENERGYbits® and SKINNYbits® are both 100% spirulina algae and can be easily swallowed or chewed before a work out, run or bike ride. These “bits of food” are virtually a mini meal and contain so much nutrition, they fill you up and energize you instantly. And all for just one calorie per tab.  Like fish oil, they also boast the same heart healthy Omega 3 and have the second highest concentration of the Essential Fatty Acid GLA (second only to mothers milk). But the good news doesn’t stop there. While there is only one ingredient in ENERGYbits® and SKINNYbits®, they both contain the highest concentration of protein, chlorophyll, antioxidants and electrolytes in the world, as well as forty other vitamins and minerals.  Most importantly, unlike fish, Bits of Health’s algae is safe, toxin free and good for the environment because it is grown organically, safely and sustainably in fresh water tanks. Maybe that’s why Dr. Oz now recommends algae oil as the safest source of Omega 3, not fish oil.

So, this Valentines Day, make the environmentalists, cardiologists and your favorite athlete  happy. Bring home ENERGYbits® or SKINNYbits® algae bits instead of a heart shaped chocolate box. These little green bits of algae will not only love your waistline more than chocolate, they’ll protect your heart, your loved ones and the oceans too. Nothing fishy about that.
