rest, recovery and recoverybits

Disclaimer: I received a sample of RECOVERYbits for the purpose of this review. Opinions are all my own.

I train a lot. There isn’t really an off season … maybe just a little downtime before the next challenge begins. I have to be careful I don’t push myself too hard.

You’ve all heard the saying, “you never regret a workout.” Sometimes it might be appended with, “only the workouts you don’t do.”

That isn’t true for me, though. I don’t regret skipping workouts. I can’t even count how many times I went back to sleep after my 5 a.m. alarm went off. As much as I enjoy my 6 a.m Bikram yoga classes, and as much as they help me stretch and stay loose, sometimes I just need more sleep. I can get an extra two hours if I skip the class. I feel like I’ve become a pretty good judge of when I need a little more rest, and when I should push through the desire to stay in my nice warm bed. I make sure to take at least one or two rest days per week, and I’ll often skip boot camp classes when my body is feeling a little beat up.

When I was contacted by a representative at ENERGYbits to see if I wanted to try RECOVERYbits, it was good timing. Allergies were making my throat itchy, people are starting to get winter illnesses, and my training was at its peak. RECOVERYbits are 100% non GMO, organically grown chlorella and a natural way to boost your immunity. 


Now, I only got a couple days worth to test with, not long enough to see any immune-boosting powers. But I’m a health-food person. I like consuming products that are good for me, and I definitely believe the claims. It will take a little getting used to, swallowing so many tablets (they’re food, not pills!). Chewing them is OK too, but it’s a strong taste that might take some time to get used to.

One serving.
One serving.

I sampled ENERGYbits a year or so ago. I like both of these products — they are natural ways to get really good nutrients. It’s pricey, and I haven’t taken the leap yet to make them a part of my everyday routine. But definitely something I’m considering as I continue to push my body and improve my health.
