Ok so Snapchat has been really interesting because I’ve been able to really, really ‘talk’ to you guys one on one.

Which is super cool because it feels more personal.

Ok so, sometimes I ‘snap’ weird shit throughout my daily routine & I’ll get a question & I’ll think ‘OMG I should do a blog post on this!’

Hence this post— one of the main questions is: what’s the weird blue stuff you drink every day?

Honestly I don’t know why I haven’t done a post on this sooner? But before I begin let me preface: this is not sponsored. I just love this stuff. Really. It’s the shit.

Presenting: E3 LIVE

You’re probably like ‘wait, what? E3 what?’

Firstly e3 Live is a SUPERFOOD, SUPER POWER algae liquid ( I take it in a shot glass, no really, I do— I shoot it like college vodka days ) that’s filled with everything wellness. Oh, & it’s best served frozen. I grab it from the freezer every morning I wake up, let it defrost for a few hours, & then enjoy 2 shots throughout the day. Then I throw it back in the freezer. Easy, quick, love it.

To get all scientific on you: “E3 Live is 100% Aphanizomenon flos-aquae blue-green algae—a certified organic wild-harvested Nutrient Dense AquaBotanical considered by renowned health authorities to be nature’s most beneficial superfood.Physiologically, E3Live may help support overall body/mind balance in numerous ways. Its field of action simultaneously includes the immune, endocrine, nervous, gastro-intestinal and cardio-vascular systems. Nutritionally, E3Live provides 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids  It is the most nutrient dense food known to mankind and a rich source of chlorophyll.”

More info? Here: “As stated by the largest and most extensive study, blue green algae AFA has been proven to increase immune cell migration– the process which gets them where they are needed. One particular double blind human study revealed that within two hours of eating blue green algae AFA, 40% of the circulating natural killer cells were triggered to move from the blood to the tissues. Natural killer cells are especially known for finding virally infected cells, including cancer cells, and killing them. NO OTHER NATURAL SUBSTANCE is known to trigger such a movement of NK cells in the body. Further research MAY prove that eating a small amount of blue green algae AFA every day could assist in the prevention of cancer and viral infections.”

Initially I started drinking my E3 Live shots for my jaw surgery swelling. It’s really helped to reduce inflammation ( more on that whole fun time here ). And then after taking the liquid for 5 months every day for swelling, I became hooked.

Some benefits…BECAUSE it wouldn’t be TSC if I didn’t discuss benefits of e3 live:

+ high concentration of protein, vitamins, & minerals.
+ it’s filled with antioxidants.
+ boosts & regulates immune system.
+ boosts energy levels.
+ kickstarts weight loss.
+ plus it’s one of the most gnarly anti-inflammatories out there.

NEED I SAY MORE?

Oh? I do. K. Look at this, here are specifics:

+ Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids
+ 12 Vitamins: Biotin, Folic Acid, Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, D, E and K
+ All essential amino acids ( protein ): Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine
+ 9 Non-essential amino acids: Alanine, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Cystine, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, Proline, Serine, Tyrosin

YESSSS PLEASE, THX.

BY THE WAY, the taste is not the best. Like, don’t expect a pineapple-ish, berry flavored taste. This isn’t Skittles in a drink, guys. To be honest, it takes some getting used to. I really don’t mind the taste of e3 live ( I feel like I’m used to weird tastes ) but Michael had some trouble getting his first shot down.

I told him to sack up.

& now he’s obsessed & asks for his daily E3 Live shot. He thinks he told me about it. STORY OF MY LIFE.

To prepare yourself, I would revert to early college days. Grab a chaser, literally though. Get a chaser of pineapple juice, take your E3Live shot, plug your nose, & sack up.

Beauty is pain, LOL.

As always, I encourage each of you to do your own research. The Skinny Confidential is all about sharing what’s worked for me & for other women around the world. I believe everyone should take time to really find out what works for them before trying ANYTHING! For me though, E3 Live/algae shots are working.

SO! I thought I’d share.

Are there any other random things you guys want to see on the blog? Tell, tell.

Ok, I’m off to unpack, listen to meditation music, & read.

Nighty-night, lauryn x

+ note: this kind can be found here BUT a ton of smoothie bars carry it too— I can’t believe how many smoothie/juice joints have recently started using it.

    Every year I wonder what next year may bring in terms of “superfoods” – not a criticism, I swear by them myself. Have you tried out Birch water? That seems to be one of the latest hypes? I need to get my hands on some of these Algae Shots, they must been one of the most nutrient rich drinks you could have!

      Hi Alexis, yes you can totally mix it in a smoothie. I like it with blueberry smoothies. I think it’s great! Try mixing a little bit into your favorite smoothies and see which you like best. xx

    Can you tell me why it has to be frozen? Does it come shipped frozen? Thank you

    Glad I’m not the only one who’s husband thinks he came up with something you’ve been telling them for months. I was just talking about this with a friend the other day actually. 😀 This stuff looks so fun and good! Who wouldn’t want to take a shot of something that pretty? It’s like healthy Hynotiq, no? 😉

    hi love! I know you moderate these so no pressure to post but I am just wanting to check in on how you store your algae shots. I am sensitive about this because of breast cancer personally, but reguardless best to be safe than sorry i’d say. Anyways, I store my flax oil in Glass. If you are freezing and unfreezing it in plastic, then the heat transfer could put plastic in your drink. Anyways I know you are probably all over it but i’m curious how you store it. Best!!

      GREAT tip. WOW!! I love this. I will store mine in a glass jar from now on. I believe the bottle is BPA free that it’s stored in. I freeze the stuff all day & remove it in the morning. At about 11 am I have the shot & add it back to the freezer. Let me know if that makes sense. x

    Lauryn, I just love all the wellness things you drink – I’m with you 100% and try almost all of them! I am curious, though, how you fit all these potions, tonics, elixirs, etc. into your day…it seems like there are so many things you are drinking starting in the morning. How do you time it all out? Do you switch off some days for some things? It would be really fun to see your morning drink/food/fitness schedule in full.

    XO,

    Catherine

      I will do a post on this. I’m always running around so this is definitely challenging sometimes! I’ll do a recap of my day with my potions soon. xx

    2. Maddy h

      Yes!!! I’ve been wondering this too. I would lose track of all the supplements. I am a shocker for not sticking to things. It takes ages for it to become ingrained in my day as a proper habit. Ps Lauryn love the close up side view of your e ring. So beautiful and gorgeous detail!

    I can’t wait to try this stuff! I emailed them to see where they sell it in the rogue valley, it’s made not too far away from me in Klamath Falls, Oregon, and they asked how I hear about it, so I gave them your info. So you may hear from them? Anyway thanks for doing this post! Can’t wait to try it!!

    This looks amazing! Definitely will have to try this. Question for you: do you take this in addition to a Biotin vitamin? I’ve been taking Biotin and fish oil every day, so I wonder if this could replace those supplements (or at least the Biotin!)?

    Hi Lauryn, I can’t even tell you how excited I am to try this! Since you’ve been using it 5 months, aside from helping with inflammation, can you tell me if you’ve noticed other benefits??

      Hi Cathy! Yes for sure. Did you see the benefits above? I’m literally obsessed! I’ve felt so healthy and energized from drinking it regularly. Thanks for reading! xx

    Posts like THIS make me so freaking STOKED! We live in a suuuuuuper duper small town with nothing exciting (sad coming from Oceanside, California where an active lifestyle and raw foods are EVERYTHING.) BUT, next month we are getting a juice bar (funny considering I told my husband a year ago we should open one in our town,) and I HOPE and PRAY they carry things like this.. just little things that make you feel better about your day :-P. Thanks for sharing Lauryn! Another thing I shall stock up on hahah

    I absolutely love trying new super foods! I checked out their website. Do you usually just get the original flavor? Also, do you get the enhanced ones like “BrainOn?”

    I like to freeze single servings of stuff like this in an ice cube tray, pop them out and store in a bag in the freezer so I can just grab and thaw a small amount each time

    Ahhhh I love e3 live!! It’s on the pricier side, but I recently starting drinking it again after a few years hiatus. It really helps with my immune system, my skin and nails, and reduce cravings for me. I started it again because I was sick with bronchitis for 2 months straight and couldn’t shake it off, and it helped me get back on track! Also, my nails have vertical lines, split and break all the time but they’re so strong and look so smooth when I take this stuff. I love it! 🙂

    Totally want to try but I’m a little confused! Is it powder that you mix with liquid or is there a liquid version? Your links point to a powder version but I see you’re taking the liquid! xoxo
