Health Benefits of Algae to Help You Stay Healthy for the Holidays

Algae tablets are a superfood with evidence-based benefits that can counteract many health effects of suboptimal holiday meals and more. They protect the healthy gut flora and provide nutritional insurance <1>. Let’s dive in to learn how.

Support healthy blood sugar and metabolism

Suboptimal blood sugar control can show up as post-meal sleepiness and in your waistline. From pumpkin pies to sugar-laden drinks, mashed potatoes to stuffings, holiday dining can send our blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride.

Exercising and healthy food choices are the best ways to keep your blood sugar control within healthy levels, but these tend to go out the window during the holidays. The good news is that animal and clinical studies show that spirulina and chlorella can powerfully support healthy blood sugar control <2>, <3>, <4>, <5>.

In a study of people with pre-diabetes, taking chlorella for 12 weeks significantly improved blood sugar control <6>. A systematic review of 22 clinical trials found many studies that support the blood sugar-balancing benefits of spirulina. In addition, spirulina mitigates many other health effects of suboptimal blood sugar control such as increased oxidative stress <7>.

With VITALITYbits® or RECOVERYbits® by your side, these festive meals become more forgiving to your blood sugar and waistline.

Protecting the gut and gut flora

Holiday feasts and overindulgence can be upsetting for your tummy. Most holiday foods are rich in sugar, salt, and fats, which are difficult to digest. These foods can also cause leaky gut and tend to feed an unhealthy gut flora.

This added load on your digestion might be temporary but, over time it shifts the gut flora towards more suboptimal and weight-gain gut bacteria. Since your gut is an epicenter of your health, these changes can have a ripple effect throughout your body.

ENERGYbits® and VITALITYbits® are your sidekicks in protecting your gut and preserving a healthy gut flora. Also, being raw foods, they provide a source of digestive enzymes such as pepsin and chlorophyllase, which can support your digestion.

Recent studies show that the food you feed your gut bacteria is more powerful than any probiotics you can take. Also, spirulina and chlorella are even more powerful prebiotics than popular prebiotic supplements like fructooligosaccharides–they boost the growth of good gut bacteria and increase beneficial postbiotics <8>, <9>. Possibly this is because algae tablets are a whole food that contains fibers, plant-based antioxidants, and omega-3, which all work powerfully to support your gut flora.

In rat studies, high-fat diets tended to cause leaky gut, dysbiosis, and low-grade inflammation along with weight gain, just like when humans eat an unhealthy diet. Feeding these rats spirulina protected them from leaky gut, preserved a healthy gut flora, and mitigated much of the food-related inflammation <10>.

With occasional indulgence shifting our digestive balance, ENERGYbits® and VITALITYbits® come to the rescue. By protecting your gut lining and gut flora, algae tablets help maintain smooth digestion, regularity, and overall health despite stress and unhealthy foods.

Supporting healthy detoxification and immune function

The detoxification and immune systems demand a lot of micronutrients. Holiday travels, cold weather, drinking alcohol, and other indulgences can be taxing on your toxic load and immune function, which can further deplete your vitamins and minerals. A high toxic load can make your immune system work harder. These can all be a vicious cycle.

Algae tablets, especially ones like VITALITYbits®, provide essential micronutrients to keep you healthy and energetic during the chilly months!

Here’s how tablets work their magic <11>, <12>:

  • Binding toxins: Excessive holiday treats and alcohol consumption introduce unwanted toxins. Chlorella and spirulina are binders that can bind to these toxins, aiding their safe removal from the body.
  • Supporting your overworked liver: In a meta-analysis of 7 clinical studies, chlorella protected the liver and supported healthy liver enzyme levels <13>. Another clinical trial suggested that spirulina may be beneficial for people with fatty liver disease <14>.
  • Combating oxidative stress and protecting you from oxidative damage: Unhealthy foods and alcohol increase oxidative stress in your body, which can accelerate aging and cause low energy. Our algae tablets are rich in free radical reducing nutrients and enzymes like superoxide dismutase to help neutralize the free radicals.

After holiday indulgences, incorporating algae tablets into your routine provides a natural boost, helping your body detoxify and return to its optimal state.

Brain, mental health, and stress resilience

The holidays, albeit joyous, sometimes take a toll and leave us mentally exhausted. Moments of tiredness, brain fog, or mood fluctuations creep in. All those late-night gift wrapping sessions, back-to-back parties, shopping sprees, and catching up with friends can leave us pooped out.

Need a little pick-me-up? The nutrients found in BEAUTYbits® and VITALITYbits® can help. They contain essential fatty acids and B vitamins, which improved mood and stress resilience in various studies.

Both human and animal studies have revealed the benefits of spirulina and chlorella in these algae tablets. They deliver essential nutrients that invigorate brain function, recharge energy levels, and support healthy emotional responses. Besides supporting brain and nervous system health, algae tablets also support the gut-brain connection by protecting your gut flora. This unique combination makes algae tablets a powerful all-in-one supplement to help you thrive during the holiday season <15>, <16>.

These nutrients help provide sustained energy without giving you the jitters or undesirable energy crashes in the midst of celebrations. These algae tablets act as a buffer, helping you stay joyful and stress-free throughout the season.

Glow this holiday season with algae tablets

The holidays mean photos with family and friends. We all want to look our best. Algae tablets, especially BEAUTYbits®, have skin-enhancing and anti-aging properties. They are rich in nutrients and plant-based substances that promote skin health and radiance while protecting cells, including:

  • Phycocyanin: This beneficial blue protein pigment is the main active component in spirulina and chlorella. More and more studies are discovering its health benefits. The phycocyanin combined with complete protein in the algae tablets work together to boost collagen production.
  • Chlorophyll: Both spirulina and chlorella are high in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a green pigment that protects from oxidative stress, aids in detoxification, and supports mitochondrial health <17>.
  • Superoxide dismutase (SOD): Both spirulina and chlorella contain this enzyme along with the cofactor minerals for the enzymes to work. SOD is one of the body’s primary internal defenses against cell damage and aging. It plays a critical role in counteracting oxidative stress.
  • Vitamin C, vitamin E, and carotenoids: These are three of the most well-known antioxidant vitamins. Both spirulina and chlorella are rich in them.
  • Gamma linolenic acid (GLA): Spirulina is a source of GLA. GLA is an essential fatty acid with inflammation-balancing and cell protective effects.

These nutrients in algae tablets support collagen production and protect your skin and hair during the holiday season <18>.
