039 | Making Algae Sexy | with Catharine Arnston
I’m just gonna say this: my liver hates me.
I have MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase), which means I don’t detox well, so my liver gets bogged down with supplements, toxins, alcohol, and all the other things.
My brother (hey Steven!) is always on the lookout for new products and people that will help me along my health journey, and last year he found Energy Bits and Recovery Bits. They’re little, green bits of food made of chlorella and spirulina, and they help you detoxify. I take 30 every day, and I have for over a year. My doctor, Dr. Lekkos, also recommends their whole line to his patients as well, because they’re so powerful and clean.
The CEO, Catharine Arnston, has created something so, so beautiful. She’s making algae sexy (her words, not mine) and educating the masses on the benefits of this highly impactful and easy way to heal your body.
We had a chance to talk in Boston a few weeks ago, and I loved this conversation. Her story, from losing everything while trying to create this company to now gaining respect around the world is phenomenal.
