Last week I mentioned on Twitter about this new great product I’ve been trying for a few weeks now, EnergyBits. I promised you all that I would share more information about it on the blog, so here it is…
It’s hard to describe how great this product is, without sounding like an informercial, which is not my intention, so I’ll do my best to not sound like that.
As a new runner, we try lots of things for energy, especially during long runs. The first day I tried EnergyBits, I took 4 tablets. Less than what their required serving, but I wanted to test it out, wasn’t sure if it would upset my sensitive stomach, and I had a race that day too.
My race was a short one, 4 miles, at Central Park. The tablets did not upset my stomach, even when taken on an empty stomach. I was feeling great! Not hungry, not tired, not sick or fatigued, just great.
As I ran through Central Park (a park I’ve learned to hate during marathon training), I’ve realized that I was running faster than I’ve ever ran at Central Park before. I was in the zone! My overall pace was under 9 minutes, which is really rare for me, especially at this park. I felt amazing!
I won’t say that EnergyBits was the sole reason for my amazing run, but I do believe it contributed to it.
Another awesome instance happened during work, you know when that 3pm sleepiness creeps in and all you want to do is eat something sweet, grab some coffee or wish for a couch you can take a nap in. I took some EnergyBits and I didn’t feel sleepy anymore. I actually felt naturally awake. If you ever taken B vitamins you would know what I’m talking about. As a matter of fact EnergyBits are the best source of Vitamin B:

I also want to mention that because EnergyBits is a food, I was happy to hear that I can share it with my dog. I let her try one, at first she licked it and dropped it like wondering what is this, then she started to chew on it. Now, everytime I shake the can she comes running, and no longer licks it, just chews and swallows. I guess she’s now used to the taste.
Here’s more information about EnergyBits:
