In this episode I'm joined by founder and CEO of ENERGYbits, Catherine Arnston to talk all about the superfoods found in our vast bodies of water. While you might think algae is the same across the board, Catherine gives us an expert look into the numerous types of algae and sea vegetables available for our consumption. From the health benefits (is algae actually a vegan source of true vitamin B12?!) to the best ways to detox and support our microbiome, after listening to this episode you'll never overlook this incredible superfood ever again.

Catharine Arnston is an expert in algae nutrition, a wellness thought leader, an experienced entrepreneur, and sought after speaker. She has an MBA, BA Hons, and is a Board Certified Health Coach.

Catherine's journey into the world of algae began in 2008 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and was advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would improve her healing. Catharine left her 25-year corporate career to help her sister identify which foods where alkaline and this led her to algae. When Cathrine learned that algae's vast healing properties were documented in tens of thousands of scientific studies but that none of these studies or benefits were known outside of Asia, she knew she needed to do something. And so ENERGYbits was born.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • A look into the different types of algae and how they can affect and heal our bodies
  • How supplementing with algae can provide us with certain nutrients that our bodily ecosystems may be lacking
  • Some of the natural ways we can improve our detoxification pathways and provide overall microbiome support
