I’ve been using EnergyBits and spirulina algae as a running supplement for about a year and a half. I first read about it from the #runchat hashtag on Twitter, and noted several different running bloggers writing about why they use it. Algae is plant-based, vegan, about 60% protein (three times that of a steak!), high in iron and chlorophyll, plus more.
In this video I review spirulina algae’s benefits and why I use it for energy and endurance for running. Since one of my 2016 goals is to become more lean and muscular (push through abs!, which means cutting back on eating delicious Oreo cookies *insert sad face emoji*) I’ve recently taken up HIIT and strength training workouts. I now use algae before strength training workouts as well.
I also share two brands of algae (EnergyBits & Green Foods), plus talk about the differences between the two: price options, taste, and more.
Y’all can watch the video after the jump!
