Are you looking to naturally increase your energy without stimulants? Have you tried everything but still feel exhausted all the time? There is hope!
Join me as I deep dive with Catharine Arnston, the founder of EnergyBits, into the world of algae (spirulina and chlorella) and their long list of amazing benefits including their capacity to fuel, protect, and repair our mitochondria.
If our mitochondria are damaged - through poor nutrition, toxins, lack of self-care, etc - they cannot produce the energy we need. Resorting to caffeine, chocolate, etc for energy becomes our default. Fortunately, algae have the potential to improve the functioning of our mitochondria - the powerhouse of our cells—and thus naturally improve our energy levels. In addition, algae have also been shown to support the detoxification of the body, balance our hormones, reduce brain inflammation, support liver function, and more.
Spirulina and chlorella are relatively unknown in the Western world but have been used as critical food sources in Asia for centuries. Most people do NOT know they are cyanobacteria and come complete with bio-available protein, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and antioxidants.
Catharine shares her extensive research on these superfoods, discussing their alkaline properties, easy-to-digest nutrients, and beneficial impact on human health. We explore concerns about their safety and purity and learn more about how algae are grown and why not all algae are of the same quality.
If you're looking for ways to improve your energy, heal and detoxify your body (a common goal among those who have previously consumed excess sugar), this episode is a must-listen.
