I follow Energy Bits on Twitter and was asked how has my running been going?
I was honest and said I'm just trying to get faster!
And a little bit later after talking about running I gave them my address and they said they would send me a sample!
I just have to say, I love the running community. I have never been apart of something so giving, honest and exciting before.
That being said I was so excited to receive my Sample and all the paper that came with it of information about the product and how it compares to other running supplements like gels, protein bars and drinks.
Mike started reading everything, if there's not enough research on a product he won't even bother letting me use (doctors orders!!) but he was excited about this he's heard of Algae before.
I liked that this is also a food as well as for energy with no sugar, caffeine and chemicals.
Right now I use the GU gels but they make my stomach cramp allot. I have horrible stomach issues (born with allot of problems, my stomach didn't develop right) so anything that says it's good on tummies I immediately have interest!
I waited to try it twice on my long run days where I take energy supplements.
And I took 30 pills, which had no after taste at all, before both my runs in the morning on an empty stomach (If I eat then run too early I'll just be in pain and sick). And I started running and mile after miles was waiting for the tummy cramping, the acid, the nausea...nothing.
I felt like I had breakfast but I had no side effects! Could it be?!
To be 100% my honest self I felt no energy with it like when I take a GU gel, BUT I had no side effects with this product. I feel like I can run now early in the morning and not debate what bland food to eat to not barf.
This is a doctor approved product and a runner approved product. I can honestly say this helped me in my running and I'm stunned that It's Algae!!
