Algae? For real? YES!

If you want increased energy, better skin, a clearer mind and supercharged gut health, then you are going to want to hear this interview with Energybits* founder and algae guru, Catharine Arnston. Until recently algae has mostly been ignored as a source of nutrition by western wellness, but that is all about to change. Algae has more dense nutrition, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and protein than anything else on the planet, and its natural, sustainably sourced, keto, vegan and alkaline! Its a fast and easy way to naturally fuel your body, detox your organs, support your immune system, recover from a work out...or even an over indulgent night on the town. Its the #1 thing you can do for cellular healing, prevents cancer, is endorsed by NASA...need I go on?

So why don't we all know about it? Well, if you're anything like me, then hearing the word "algae" evokes images of neglected fish tanks from childhood or dirty ponds. Not exactly appetizing. But the algae we are talking about couldn't be more different. Spirulina and chlorella are nature's gift to our wellness. Blue and green algae, with over 40 nutrients that can fit into the size of a pin head. They have been used nutritionally for thousand of years in other cultures, but it's just in the last decade or so that they are finally getting the attention they deserve as the natural, toxin-free super fuel we've been searching for. With 40 times the iron of spinach, 45 times the antioxidants of broccoli, 3 times the protein of steak, and 500 times the chlorophyll of arugula, algae needs to be on the top of all of our shopping lists in 2021! Not to mention in all our carry-ons once we can travel safely again!

I could write pages on why everyone should immediately be integrating algae into their daily routine for optimum health, but I will just say listen to this show and see for yourself. Catharine is engaging, informative, and knowledgable with science based information + peer reviewed studies to back her up. What started as a passion project to help her sister in her battle against cancer, has 12 years later turned into a mainstream powerhouse wellness company endorsed by doctors and Olympic athletes. And if all of that wasn't enough, supporting algae agriculture could have a global impact, help those most vulnerable end world hunger.
