I’m so excited to finally tell you about my experiences with this awesome company!
A few months ago I started hearing everyone raving about Energybits. I started looking into it and loved what I found.
The next thing I absolutely loved… I have never experienced a company with such amazing customer service! Shortly after commenting on a Enegybits review, I got an email from the brand manager. How great is that!? He addressed my questions and personally offered to allow me to try and review some bits for myself.
I was sent a sample pack of Energybits as well as a sample pack of Recoverybits.
I have never been one to particularly feel the effects of caffeine (which this product is not, but I’m just saying…) or other products promising an energy-boost. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t be able to give this product a quality review.
I tried the Energybits first.
I had read reviews that the bits were awful to take because they are 100% algae and it is recommended that you take 20-30 at once.
Yes, they smell like fish food, but it isn’t that overwhelming at all. I found them easier than expected to take (the small size totally makes the amount manageable) and it got me through my workout! I was dragging a bit and I made it, so I’m a fan!
My second try was just before an indoor run – my first in months – and I felt great again. I love that they are all-natural and I don’t have to worry about what I’m putting in my body!
My Recoverybits couldn’t have come in the mail at a better time. They were waiting for me at home when we returned from our whirlwind trip to LA. I jumped at the chance to try them to shake off that three-day travel “hangover” feeling. They totally got me feeling back to normal for Tiny Twisters gymnastics class the next morning.
Unfortunately, Recoverybits weren’t enough to magically reduce all the effects of four of these on the body of a Mom of toddlers who rarely gets a chance to have a cocktail anymore. Not gonna lie, I was really hoping for miracles here! Maybe my thirties is a good time to learn moderation during the first night of the annual snowmobile trip!
All in all, I’m kinda in love with Energybits – the product, the company, and the philosophy! I, unfortunately, really struggle with the price since they are available in bags of 1,000 tablets for $115. That’s a lot to shell out at once.
However, I totally understand and agree with Jonathan, the brand manager I have been in touch with:
In regards to the price – you can find cheaper spirulina, but you risk contamination (due to quality issues with the water in Japan and standards in Chinese production) and the need to take even more. We had someone recently compare our spirulina with cheaper, store bought options (check it out here: http://bit.ly/12LRRTW). The reason ours costs a bit more is due to quality – we have the highest quality control standards and the spirulina is the best of the best. In virtually all cases, these other companies are mass distributors who sell hundreds of products at very low prices. They rely on volume not quality for profits and in almost all cases, they have used inferior strains of algae, inferior growing or production methods, inferior faster drying techniques (that destroy the enzymes and the nutrition) and inferior packaging methods etc.
In a nutshell, you get what you pay [for]. It will be impossible for the quality of these low price algae to meet the high standards and high quality as ours. As a result you may need to take 4-5 times as much to get the same concentration nutrition that is found in ours. Plus you always run the risk of contaminants being in low quality algae unlike ours which is guaranteed pure. We hold ourselves to be the gold standard. Algae is ALL we do. We are specialists. You always get the best from a specialist. We think people’s health is worth it.
