Only four BILLION years later, it finally seems like algae is having its moment in the spotlight. Sure… you may be thinking “pond scum”, but algae is the most alkaline, nutrient dense plant in the world – but only recently are Americans really starting to take notice. Lora brings in Catharine Arnston, CEO & Founder of ENERGYbits, an algae-based food company focused on bringing awareness and knowledge to the average consumer. Is algae the new kale and all it’s really hyped up to be? Listen in to hear the endless benefits of chlorella and spirulina on the human body.
Catharine has a thirty year career as an international Attache for the Canadian and British Governments, publisher of an international magazine and Founder of three startups. But in 2009 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist to change her diet to an alkaline one because it would help her heal, Catharine put her career on hold to help her sister. In the process, she discovered algae, the most alkaline, nutrient-dense plant in the world that no one seemed to know about. Catharine knew algae would be a game changer for the world if she could just help Americans understand it. And ENERGYbits was born.

All The Deets on Algae
Algae is a multi-billion dollar crop in Asia where it has been used for decades. Algae is endorsed by NASA and the United Nations as the most nutritionally dense food in the world There are over 100,000 studies documenting its benefits, some of which include increased energy, improved focus, strengthened immune system, reduced inflammation, removal of toxins, enhanced longevity, improved sports performance, removal of hunger and revitalized skin & hair health. All this from a 4 billion year old, single cell organism that has forty vitamins & minerals, the highest concentration of protein in the world, one calorie and one ingredient. The only thing wrong with algae is that it is virtually unknown outside of Asia. ENERGYbits is changing that.
