What You'll Learn

▪Spirulina contains DHA, a fatty acid that is important for proper brain function. It is used by the frontal lobes in the brain, which are responsible for sustained attention, planning, and problem-solving.

▪A handful of spirulina can help curb hunger, stabilize your blood glucose, and leave you feeling ready to take on the day.

▪Studies show that taking just one gram of tryptophan at bedtime can significantly improve the quality of your sleep. Chlorella algae has 1.24 grams of tryptophan per 100 grams, the highest concentration in any food - almost five times the amount found in turkey!

3 Ways to Conquer Your Resolutions with Algae

No matter the goal, you need to be healthy both physically and mentally. Incorporating algae into your daily routine can vastly improve your mental health and mindset by contributing a wealth of nutrients that your brain may not be getting. Let’s take a closer look at 3 ways algae can help you improve your health, so you can make your life the best year ever!

1. Running Out of Will Power? Spirulina Can Help!

The long-term goals we make at the beginning of the year require a lot of mental energy. It’s easy to fail because we simply don’t have the mental energy to stay focused on them.

Spirulina and chlorella are loaded with nutrients that help fight mental fatigue, including B vitamins, magnesium, nitric oxide, iron, protein, and Omega-3s like DHA. A growing body of evidence suggests that a lack of Omega-3 and other fatty acids contributes to mental health problems, including depression.[1][2] Researchers found that the frontal lobes, which are responsible for sustained attention, planning, and problem-solving, are particularly responsive to DHA in the brain.[3]

The modern diet lacks any significant amount of DHA, so it’s important to actively seek out food sources containing this fatty acid. The mainstream solution to this issue is currently fish oil supplements. However, our oceans are now so toxic and overfished that most fish oils are low quality and quickly go rancid.

Spirulina is a simple solution to a complex problem. High-quality sources of algae like ENERGYbits are harvested in closely monitored, outdoor tanks that use triple-filtered, fresh mountain spring water. Organic spirulina is a safe, sustainable source of Omega 3 that will help keep your mind sharp and your will powered!

2. Algae Each Day Helps Keep Stress at Bay

New routines are stressful. They throw us out of our comfort zone. Plus, if you can’t get a new routine in motion, you will probably be disappointed, leading to even more stress. That’s why a stable mood is important if you want to set and accomplish new goals. Fortunately, algae can help!

An 8-week study on the effects of algae’s impact on mood showed that taking algae significantly increased quality of life, mood, and attitude.[4] Another study found that spirulina could help prevent crashes caused by low blood glucose.[5] When we aren’t distracted by cravings and fatigue from inadequate nutrition, we have a much easier time sticking to our resolutions. If you’re too tired to get up, you’re not going to go on that run. If you’re too hungry for just a salad at lunch, you’re going to load up on sugar. A handful of spirulina can help curb hunger, stabilize your blood glucose, and leave you feeling ready to take on the day.

3. Starting Every Day Strong with a Good Night’s Sleep

A lack of sleep can disrupt serotonin levelsin the body leading health problems such as a weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, poor concentration, and mood swings.[6][7] These all impact the likelihood of success (or not) for your New Year’s Resolutions. Fortunately, both spirulina and chlorella algae contain tryptophan, a nutrient that facilitates sleep. Tryptophan is the precursor to melatonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates sleep.[8]

Studies show that taking just one gram of tryptophan at bedtime can significantly improve the quality of your sleep.[9]Chlorella algae has 1.24 grams of tryptophan per 100 grams, the highest concentration in any food - almost five times the amount found in turkey.[10]

Bonus: Just one more reason to get some sleep!

The glymphatic system is a waste-clearance system in humans that flushes toxins out of the brain. Without a well-functioning glymphatic system, your brain may accrue excess beta-amyloid, a toxic protein linked to Alzheimer’s disease.[11] This “toxin-flushing” cannot happen while you are awake – one more reason to get a full night’s rest and chlorella can help you do that!

Starting day with Something Old

Algae was the first life on Earth four billion years ago and has been used as a sustainable food for hundreds of years. In Asia, algae is a multi-billion dollar agricultural crop where it has been revered for fifty years for its health, beauty, athletic benefits. We want you to enjoy these benefits too. In fact, algae is so nutrient dense (40 vitamins and minerals) it can be a whole-food replacement for your daily vitamin, fish oil, protein bars, energy snacks, sports nutrition, and even your greens. Algae may be tiny but it’s mighty. And when you take it, you will be too!
