Catharine Arnston is the Founder/CEO/Chief Scientific Officer of ENERGYbits® and an expert in algae for wellness, nutrition, beauty, biohacking, and longevity. She is a nationally recognized thought-leader, seasoned corporate executive, experienced entrepreneur, and sought-after speaker. Catharine has an MBA, BA Hons, and Certificate in Health Coaching.
Catharine’s journey into the fascinating world of algae began in 2008 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would improve her healing. Catharine left her 25-year corporate career to help her sister identify which foods were alkaline which led her to discovering algae – the most alkaline, chlorophyll-rich, high-protein, nutrient-dense food in the world. When Catharine learned that algae’s vast healing properties were documented in tens of thousands of scientific studies but that none of these studies or algae’s benefits were known outside of Asia, she knew she needed to do something. And so ENERGYbits® was born.
Catharine has spent the last twelve years researching algae, writing papers, giving presentations, lecturing at conferences, and speaking on 200+ podcasts to explain the benefits of algae. To do this, she has read thousands of scientific papers that detailed, validated, and confirmed algae’s extensive nutritional, health, beauty, longevity, and sustainability benefits. Remarkably none of this science is known by consumers. It is Catharine’s vision and passion to change this and while she is not a Ph.D., her scientific fluency allows her to explain algae with such simplicity and clarity, it quickly becomes obvious why algae are something we all urgently need.
Catharine’s passion for algae is contagious, inspiring, and thought-provoking. Her efforts have led to algae being better understood by consumers, retailers, educators, doctors, and wellness practitioners. Even the United Nations and NASA endorse algae as the most nutrient-dense food in the world and the answer to world hunger. Catharine’s extensive knowledge and a playful personality are both entertaining and educating and her speaking style leaves audiences informed, uplifted, and hopeful. She looks forward to doing the same for you.
