Episode 075: Fueling Your Body Naturally with Algae, with Catharine Arnston of Energy Bits

In this episode, I’m joined by Catharine Arnston. Catharine is the Founder and CEO of Energy Bits, a Boston-based company that she founded in 2014.

After spending 30 years in the corporate world, Catherine went back to nutrition school and founded Energy Bits, a company that produces 100% green, NON-GMO, organically grown algae, specifically spirulina and chlorella, two superfoods that I’ve used in my healing journey.

You’ll hear us discuss:

  • What's algae (spirulina, and chlorella) and what are their health benefits

  • Why is algae a source of efficient nutrition

  • How they produce their algae

  • And even how algae is a fantastic fueling source for athletes, especially endurance athletes

I’ve personally used, and continue to use, both spirulina and chlorella as part of my wellness regimen, for chelation (the process of removing toxins and heavy metals from the body).
