Supercharge Your Life with Algae… Seriously #76
Through the process of researching and helping her sister find a way to alkalize her body, Catharine Arnston found the huge benefits of algae, including to help cure and recover from breast cancer. The most nutrient dense food in the world, very highly used in Asia.
There are 15,000 strains of algae, most of which kill you. So you can’t just stick your finger in the algae in your swimming pool. The two algae that are edible and very good for you are spirulina and chlorella.
Spirulina is technically a bacteria. It has the highest concentration of protein in the world. Very high amount of iron. Each spirulina tab has 1 calorie and 40 vitamins and minerals. Satisfies your hunger and gives you a lot of energy. Her spirulina pill is called EnergyBits. A second type of spirulina is called SkinnyBits. It helps you lose weight because it controls your hunger and gives you more energy, and mental focus.
Chlorella is the other algae and it is a plant. It pulls toxins out of your body and has the highest concentration of chlorophyll. Chlorella has 1000 times more chlorophyll than greens. They’re called RecoveryBits because it helps recover from strenuous workouts, or too much wine (because it pulls out alcohol/toxins). Also increases melatonin and serotonin in the body.
How To Take Algae Pills
Can take with food or not. Can have them with breakfast or as snacks when you need a bit of energy. They can be swallowed or chewed. Catharine eats them with macadamia nuts (likes it for the fat) and it becomes a crunchy snack. She also has them at night because the body goes into a natural detox cycle at night. She takes her EnergyBits before her workouts and her RecoveryBits after her workouts.
Algae for Cancer Treatment
Scientists have started to use algae for delivering chemotherapy. They have been using algae as a delivery vehicle. They inject the algae with the chemotherapy. The algae finds the cancer and attaches itself to it, and the chemotherapy delivers only to those tissues. This is quite amazing!! This means that everything else doesn’t get destroyed.
Algae for Kids
In Japan, they have found that what keeps babies who cannot digest milk alive, is spirulina. Spirulina has the same nutrients as mother’s milk. That’s how safe spirulina is for kids to take. Start your kids slowly because they may not like it initially. Try to make a game of it. They will turn their tongues green, so you’ll need to try to make it fun.
Algae also helps the brain with conditions like ADHD, Alzheimer’s prevention, depression, inflammation reduction and other conditions.

3 Habits Catharine has Developed to Ensure her own Health Journey
- Go outside daily with some sort of exercise
- Algae daily
- Glass of water with lemon every morning
Catharine started ENERGYbits after her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and was advised by her oncologist that an alkaline, plant-based diet would help her heal. In the process of helping her sister, Catharine learned about the health benefits of a plant based diet and felt it was critical that others learn about it too. She gave up her 25 year corporate career to return to school to study nutrition. After graduating she discovered algae, the greenest, most alkaline food in the world. Algae is endorsed by NASA and the United Nations as the most nutritionally dense food in the world. It has more protein than steak, more iron than spinach, more antioxidants than blueberries, forty vitamins and minerals and just one calorie. The only trouble with algae is that it is virtually unknown (outside of Asia). Catharine decided to devote her life to making algae safe, easy to understand and easy to use. She founded ENERGYbits to make that happen and loves introducing algae to everyone she meets.
