About Catharine Arnston:

Catharine Arnston is an expert in algae nutrition, a wellness thought leader, and the Founder & CEO of EnergyBits – the makers behind the small but mighty algae tablets.

Catharine started ENERGYbits after her sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. She immediately sprang into action to help her sister find foods to support her journey when she discovered algae. Upon learning that algae was the most alkaline, plant-based, nutrient-dense food in the world and had been used for fifty years in Asia to improve health and longevity, she knew she had stumbled upon something significant (and yes, her sister fully recovered – thanks for asking).

As Catharine delved into the science of algae, she discovered that it contained 64% protein, 40 vitamins/minerals, and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient-dense food in the world. She also found that there were 100,000 studies documenting its extensive list of benefits and that it was the most sustainable, eco-friendly food crop globally. Yet, algae remained virtually unknown outside of Asia. How could this be possible? Catharine knew algae could be a game-changer for our health, our children, and our world if she could only convince people it wasn’t weird. And so, ENERGYbits was born.

It took Catharine ten years to bring algae into the mainstream and build ENERGYbits – makers of naturally grown, toxin-free, non-GMO algae tablets.
