Algae: How this Superfood Helps Protect Your Mitochondria for Greater Health: 39

Catharine Arnston is the founder and CEO of EnergyBits, the first premium algae company in the world. They value quality and focus on educating others on algae as a vital superfood and why you should be using algae for health benefits.

When her sister was diagnosed with cancer, Catharine started doing some serious research. The oncologist recommended she change her diet to an alkaline diet to prepare for chemo. Unfortunately, neither sister had any knowledge of this so Catharine did extensive research on alkaline foods. She learned a lot about plant-based nutrition and health benefits. After leaning more, she wanted to make the world a better place by sharing the benefits of algae and an alkaline diet. This desire drove her to change her career route and go back to school for nutrition.
