The Queen of Algea, Shark Tank Contestant, and CEO of ENERGYbits Catharine Arnston – Season 2 Episode 10

Sitting down with CEO of ENERGYbits, Catharine Arnston, we discuss the drive to build a company and the merits of being known as the Queen of Algae. Catharine has a thirty year career as an international Attaché 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.

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.
