Would you believe that it was possible to have all the nutrients of a plate filled with vegetables with just one tiny tablet?

This was made possible through the power of algae namely spirulina and chlorella. The study and accessibility to algae is not widely known but it is capable of giving the amount of nutrients that the body needs in order to prevent aging and disease. Algae is considered to have the highest protein, is the most nutrient dense, with the highest chlorophyll in the world, and is also endorsed by agencies. In fact, it is making its name after being successfully used by NASA as a supplement for astronauts.

In this episode, Kashif is joined by Catharine Arnston, CEO and Founder of EnergyBits. EnergyBits are nutritionally dense bits of food made from algae. Aside from the benefits mentioned above, this episode dives into everything else that algae has to offer - spirulina being an energizing, nourishing blue-green algae; and chlorella as the health, wellness and detox green algae.

Kashif and Catharine also discuss about algae in relation to mitochondria health. The most common knowledge about the mitochondria is how it functions as the powerhouse of the cell - which is a fact that is not to be undermined. Mitochondria DNA actually controls everything. This indicates that once it is damaged, we are putting our bodies at risk of disease and aging. To prevent that, the body must be able to rid of free radicals that our bodies are exposed to. 

Here are all the topics discussed throughout the episode:

  • The Beginning of EnergyBits (Catharine's Story)
  • Understanding Spirulina and Chlorella
  • Aging and Disease
  • Phycocyanin 
  • Algae, the Mitochondria, and the Electron Transport Chain
  • Dealing with Free Radicals: The value of glutathione, melatonin, SOD, and chlorophyll
  • Source of Algae
  • Preserving health and improving your longevity from the age of 30, 40, 50, and beyond
