Want to be healthier? Detox your body. It’s like getting a car wash – but for your insides.
Take algae tabs. Here’s why.
You wouldn’t drive your car forever without occasionally taking it to the car wash or changing the oil. Right? Well your body needs the occasional clean up too. Detoxing is one way to do this. But detoxing doesn’t mean you have to give up food (unless of course you want to). You can detox slowly, just by making better food choices and by taking algae, which is a natural detoxifier/blood builder. This is because algae is a plant based protein and has the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world. Chlorophyll is a recognized antioxidant and blood builder which detoxes, cleanses and builds. Chlorella algae like that found in our RECOVERYbits® also has a unique ability to absorb toxins and remove them from your body. This combined with its higher concentration of chlorophyll (more than spirulina algae), makes it the preferred algae for detoxing. So if you want to supercharge the detox you are already on or if the prospect of a cleanse is too overwhelming, just take RECOVERYbits® on a daily basis. It's like giving your insides a bath. Bubbles optional.

Detoxing can be a Long Process
Have you ever redecorated or peeled wallpaper or paint from walls? If you have, you’ll know that things can get pretty messy before they get better. Nevertheless, the end result is always worth it. Right? Well, detoxing is a bit like that. As you clean out the toxins your body has stored for years, you release a lot of gunk. It’s a lot like peeling off those old layers of paint before you can start over.
When you detox, its like telling the toxins that have been comfortably hanging out in your cells, colon, or fat, that the party is over and its time to “leave the building”. So what happens next? Well, your body is as efficient as FedEx. Once toxins have been told by your cells to get lost, their pickup and departure is rapid. They are then dumped into your bloodstream, which knows it needs to get these unwelcome guests quickly on their way and readied for rapid removal (sweating, bowel movements, urine or a combination). But before your toxins can hit that exit ramp, they need to travel a quite a distance through your body.
If you’ve ever driven behind a garbage truck, you know that it isn’t pretty and in fact can be very stinky. Detoxing can be a bit like that. All those toxins which have quietly been squatting in your body and slowly doing damage, have been suddenly yanked from their perch and unceremoniously asked to “leave the building.” So they’re not about to leave without making a stink. Literally. As a result, when these toxins move through your blood stream to get to their ultimate destination (out of your body), you MIGHT experience the occasional headache, breakout or upset tummy. But it won’t last long (7-10 days). And it might not happen at all. But if it does, just keep reminding yourself that this temporary inconvenience is better than letting these harmful toxins stay in your body where they quietly and maliciously chip away at your health and your body. The more detoxing and cleansing you do, the better you will feel. By the way, detoxing not only cleanses your body but also your mind and spirit, so much so, that eventually your entire body will be humming along like a Ferrari on the Autobahn. And who doesn’t want that? Vroom Vroom.
Why Algae Helps
Why does Algae Help you Detox?
Algae helps you detox physically and mentally because it is 100% green, 60% protein, has 40 naturally occurring vitamins and minerals and the highest concentration of chlorophyll in the world. This helps activate the enzymes and processes that are part of the detox and the cell building process. Nothing in the world has as much nutrition or can help your body cleanse and rebuild as naturally as algae. Chlorophyll is also a blood builder so as it detoxes you, it also helps you rebuild. That's what we affectionately call a win-win. In fact did you know that the molecular composition of chlorophyll is IDENTICAL to the molecular composition of human blood? Well, it is and there is only one atom that is different. In humans the central atom is iron while in the plant chlorophyll it is magnesium. Other than this small difference, they are identical. In fact the two are so identical that during WW II when there were shortages of blood for transfusions, liquid chlorophyll was instead. It was even used on the skin as a natural antiseptic. Are you excited yet by what all this chlorophyll will do for you? We are!
Why some consider Chlorella the king of detox
Any of our algae tabs will help you cleanse and detox, but our RECOVERYbits® are specifically known for their detox and toxin removal characteristics. This is because they are chlorella algae. The remarkable detoxing ability of chlorella algae was first discovered in Japan after the Hiroshima bombings, when chlorella was given to the population just as a healthy source of protein. Remarkably, those who ate the chlorella algae, recovered from the devastating nuclear radiation poisoning that had resulted from the Hiroshima bombings. This discovery led to an extensive study of chlorella first by the USA Government and then by the Japanese Government. Tens of thousands of studies on chlorella have been conducted over the last fifty years, all of which confirm this amazing ability of chlorella algae to absorb toxins (any toxins - from radiation to mercury to alcohol) and remove them from the body. These findings, combined with the knowledge that algae is the most concentrated source of protein available on the planet, led the Japanese to build chlorella farming, into the billion dollar industry it is now. For the last fifty years, chlorella has been taken by most Japanese on a daily basis. It is still unknown in the USA. But with the launch of our algae tabs, we’re hoping to change that. It's finally your turn to experience the amazing benefits of chlorella.
Why Drink Water?
OK, so now you know that algae can help you feel like a superhero. But you’re not done yet. You also need water. Lots of it. And no, coffee or soda's don’t count. Nice try though.
Think about this. When you were a kid, you probably had a gold fish. Right? Remember what happened when you didn’t change the water? It got murky. Your goldfish seemed depressed, stopped swimming or worse – died. Poor thing. But once you cleaned out the bowl and replaced it with fresh water, little “Goldie” was probably back doing laps again, maybe even back flips like Dr. Seuss’s “One Fish, Two Fish”. Well, your body’s cells are just like little Goldie They need a constant supply of fresh water and if they don’t get it, they slowly but surely shut down, just like little Goldie. Without a daily supply of fresh water, the water around your cells gets dirty, murky and toxic like the water in your goldfish bowl did. Yuck. Who wants dirty goldfish water sloshing around inside them? Not us. Not Goldie. And not you either. So drink up. Drink often. And hopefully drink with our algae tabs.
But seriously, here’s why you and your need water. Your brain is 75% water. In fact, your muscles are 75% water too. Ever notice how you get thirsty when you lift weights? You do lift weights don’t you? The point is, your body is over 60% water and some parts are even higher, like your blood and lungs which are 90% water. Did you know your body is constantly rebuilding itself? Yup, your bones, your organs, your skin, absolutely everything is in a constant state of re-growth 24/7. Can you imagine a skyscraper built without steel? Well, water is one of your body’s most critical building materials and it can’t build healthy bones, organs or anything else for you without water. Not only that, but water is what moves stuff around in your body. Not having enough water is like not having enough construction workers on a work site. Donald Trump would not be amused. So, as you can see, water does much more than just quench your thirst. It actually helps to build and run your body efficiently. That’s why just an occasional glass of water isn’t enough. You really need those eight glasses every day. Sounds like a lot. We know.
So, lets do the math. Each day, a typical adult loses an average of six cups of water from urine, four cups from breathing, sweating and bowel movements and two to three cups from digestion. That’s twelve cups even before you add in the dehydrating effects of caffeine, stress or exercise. Granted some of your H20 needs could come from your diet but only if you are eating a lot of fruits and vegetables. And no, French fries do not count. Nice try though. So we bet you are walking around dehydrated but just don’t know it. When you are dehydrated, you fatigue easily and nothing works as well as it should. In fact, without sufficient water, your body thinks it's in survival mode. And when this happens, your body behaves like a squirrel who hides nuts before the winter. It holds on to and stores whatever water it can get its hands on –causing swelling in feet, legs, hands, or horror of horrors - weight gain. But once you give your body what it needs, this stored water is usually released. Say hello to more energy and weight loss.
By the way, that eight glasses of water a day is just a starting point. Your body treats water like a bank account. Every time you drink water, it’s like you’re making a deposit into the account. But unlike a real bank account where you are the only one authorized to make withdrawals, water withdrawals from your body can be made without your authorization or knowledge. Yikes! That’s right. It’s like giving thousands of total strangers your ATM card and PIN number and allowing them to withdraw whatever they want, whenever they want. And they do. The result? You become bankrupt, of water. And who are these unscrupulous strangers making these unauthorized withdrawals? Some are things you can control like your food and drink (eg caffeine and sugary foods are very dehydrating). Others are things you can’t control like breathing. Remember those twelve cups of water that you lose each day? Without making additional water “deposits” (i.e. drinking more water) to cover these other "unauthorized" water withdrawals your body can easily go into “overdraft” and become bankrupt i.e. dehydrated.
Still not convinced you need water? Then consider what happens when you get dehydrated. Without water in your body, you would be poisoned by your own waste products. Whoa! That got your attention didn’t it? Sorry for the drama. But here's what happens. During dehydration, the water surrounding your cells is reduced, leaving the small remaining amount to become stagnant and loaded with toxins. As dehydration continues, since your body absolutely has to have water surrounding its cells (to perform all its daily duties), it pulls out water from inside your cells. Yup, like a fugitive on the run, your body literally “steals” water where ever it can find it, from inside your cells, your blood, your organs and even from inside your colon (a big contributor to constipation). This continues until your cells finally lose all or most of their internal water, shrivel up, malfunction or become damaged. You can usually stop these early stages of dehydration just by drinking more water, but most people have no idea they are dehydrated. Too bad because there are so many health conditions that could be eased just by drinking more water. Who knew? Well, now you do. So drink up and drink often – preferably with our algae tabs. Heck they’re even approved by Goldie!
