Catharine Arnston - Discover the most nutrient dense food in the world
Catharine started ENERGYbits after her sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would help her heal. Catharine immediately sprung into action to help her sister research alkaline foods and in the process she discovered algae. When Catharine learned that algae was the most alkaline, plant-based, nutrient-dense food in the world and had been used for fifty years in Asia to improve health and longevity, she knew she had discovered something big (and yes, her sister fully recovered - thanks for asking). As Catharine dug into the science of algae, she learned it had 64% protein, 40 vitamins/minerals and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world. She also discovered there were 100,000 studies documenting its long list of benefits and it was the most sustainable, eco-friendly food crop in the world. And yet algae remained virtually unknown outside of Asia. How could this be possible? Catharine knew algae could be a game changer for our health, our children and our world if she could only convince people it wasn't weird. And so ENERGYbits was born. It took Catharine eight years to bring algae into the mainstream and build ENERGYbits into a national company. We're glad she finally did, because now you and your family can benefit from our organically grown, toxin-free, Non-GMO algae tablets too. A handful will help satisfy your hunger, help give you steady energy, and help ensure your nutritional needs are met. All this from a food that has one ingredient, no chemicals, caffeine, sugar or processing and is the most sustainable, safe, eco-friendly, crop in the world - algae. Your body and Mother Earth say thank you. And we do too. Questions asked in the episode:    What are alkaline foods and how can they impact our health?  In terms of nutrient density which algaes are offer the best bang-for-buck? What’s the difference between spirulina and chlorella? https://180nutrition.com.au/ Stu This week, I'm excited to welcome Catherine Arnston. When a family health issue sent Catherine researching the benefits of an alkaline diet, she quickly discovered algae and knew she had discovered big. As Catherine dug into the science of algae, she learned it had 64% protein, 40 vitamins and minerals and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world. In this episode, we talk about the importance of an alkaline diet and how algae can help us take our health to the next level. Over to Catherine. Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Catherine Arnston to the podcast. Catherine, how are you? Catharine Hello. I am great. I'm hailing all the way from Boston, Massachusetts today to talk to you. Stu Wow, okay. Boston, Massachusetts [inaudible 00:01:37] by Australia, so we have connected. Catharine  There you go. Stu Good to talk to you, super intrigued as to learn a little bit more about your story and your thoughts as well on what we're going to get into shortly. But first up, for everyone out there that may not have heard about you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please. Catharine About me and or how I started the company, or... Stu Yeah, just about you and your story. Catharine  Sure. Well, I am Canadian, although I've lived in Boston for 20, oh, 33 years, so don't do the math to figure out old I am, please. I'll reveal it later on I guess if I have to. But I had to spend all my time growing up in Canada, did an MBA, was doing international business and I'd started a couple other companies not related to nutrition. I was the publisher of an interior design magazine. And then out of the blue, my younger sister in Canada developed breast cancer. This was 10 years ago. And her oncologist in Canada told her she needed to change her diet to an alkaline diet because it would help her with her healing. So they didn't tell her what it was or why it would help her. So she called me because of course she's my baby sister. Of course I'm going to help. And also just because I'm a really good researcher. So I said, "Oh, I have no idea what an alkaline diet is, but we will find out." And it turned out to be mostly a plant-based diet and it was because of the chlorophyll and the phytonutrients in the plants that would build her immune system and she was going through chemo, so she needed to keep her immune system strong. So she did change her diet and eliminated acidic foods. And 10 years later she's still cancer free, so I'm very excited about that. And in the process of helping her, I started reading about plant-based nutrition. Now in America and possibly in Australia as well, plant-based nutrition is pretty much mainstream now. All the research in new foods is pretty much plant-based. But 10 years ago, nobody was talking about it. And as I read the science I thought man, somebody has to get this knowledge out there. So I thought, okay, well why don't I give it a shot? So I had no nutrition background. So I gave up my career, went back to school, I got a one year certificate from a place called the Institute for Integrative Nutrition so I could get us a health coaching certificate. When I graduated I thought, well now what? So then I taught nutrition for free at corporations and hospitals, just trying to teach people how to incorporate a plant-based nutrition diet to be healthier. And I learned a very important lesson. Pretty much everybody knows that they should eat more greens to be healthier, but they either don't like them, their kids don't like them, their husband doesn't like them, too much work to cut, carry them, cut them. So I thought, okay, if you, if I'm going to help people I have to find something that's got the green nutrition but it has to be fast, easy and maybe not even taste green. So back to the drawing board, which that basically it was the internet and I just started researching powders and then I stumbled across the algae, which I had found for my sister but hadn't really taken a close look at it. So I started digging deeper into the knowledge and the science behind algae and I was like Alice in Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole because it was incredible. Algae has been used for 50 years around the world, mostly in Asia where it's a multibillion dollar crop. It's a crop by the way, algae is not a supplement and I need to be sure your community and anyone I talk to understands that it is not a supplement. Supplements are made in labs and manufacturing plants from extracts. Algae is a crop that's grown in water similar to tomatoes, so it's an aquaculture. So anyways, it's almost as big as the beef industry is here in America. That's how big an industry is. And it's been studied. It's the most studied food in the world. There are close to 100,000 studies on the various attributes and benefits of algae, whether it's athletic benefits, a mental benefits and longevity benefits. It just goes on and on and on, but none of the science has made it out of the scientific community. I was just at an algae conference, which was basically a scientific algae conference and nobody there knows how to communicate their research to consumers. That's one of the reasons why the knowledge of algae has never really taken off here. It's mainstream in Asia because there's algae farms all over the place. People take it in Japan like we take vitamins here. They don't take vitamins in Japan, they only take chlorella. So I decided when I started reading about all these benefits of algae and how it was so misunderstood... aren't we all... that I would devote the rest of my life seriously to helping people understand algae, getting through the science, getting the credibility out there, taking the weirdness out of it by giving it consumer friendly names, packaging it properly, making sure I had the safest, purest algae possible and educating people so they know what to look for. So that's how I became the algae lady. Stu My word. My word. Catharine  I have to say, after 10 years of spending my time researching algae, which is hilarious because I'm a bit of a glamour girl and I'm the last person you would think would be so intrigued by algae, but I think I'm also a science geek. After 10 years, I'm still discovering amazing nutrients and benefits of algae. It is the gift that just keeps on giving and I can't, I love telling people about it. It's incredible. So there I am. Thanks for asking. Stu Well, now what an intro. No, I'm intrigued now. So just to backtrack a little bit then it's, well first up, I guess, thumbs up for the oncologists for saying you need to change your diet. Catharine Yes, exactly.

And what that means is I work with women around their periods basically. I've been in the nutrition industry for 13 years and I've been down this road of having my own health challenges and I really kind of along the way didn't want to become a practitioner. I wanted to become a supporter and an educator, because I feel like education is one of the missing kind of components. So I went down this really long road of traveling and studying ancestral health. I've studied a little bit about women wisdom, I've studied nutrition, I've studied wellness coaching, I've studied Ayurveda I've studied Ayurveda psychology, there's lots of different facets. And I was always so interested in like, how did our ancestors used still live thousands and thousands of years ago that we no longer maybe use their kind of techniques and tools and traditions, that we could like bring into this modern world that we do today. So now that's what I do and I work with women and helping them learn how amazing their bodies are. For full transcript and interview:  https://180nutrition.com.au/180-tv/jema-lee-interview/

Thank you for having me. Stu 01:24 Well, thank you so much. We're neighbors, as well, so we'll talk about that- Jordanna 01:26 I know. Stu 01:29 A little bit later, but, first up, for everybody out there that may not be familiar with you, I just wondered if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please. Jordanna 01:38 It's always hard when I get this question because I don't really know where to start, but I'll start from the very beginning. I'm a journalist. My training is journalism. I spent the first half of my career working in magazines and specifically in food publishing, which I don't really know how I ended up there. It was one of those chance encounters, and it started to steer the direction of my life from there. I worked in food publishing for almost 10 years, working in magazines and cookbooks, and got myself up to the top ranks, dream job, and thought, "Oh, this is not as dreamy as I had envisioned it," so I left publishing, and I started working for myself in lots of different facets, and it went through lots of reinventions. 02:28 I went from a health coach. I did a lot of recipe development, writing recipes for cookbooks, that moved into the celebrity cookbook world where I'd write recipes, ghostwrite recipes for celebrities, and then I exhausted that side of my life, and I pivoted once more, and I stepped away from that a little bit and started doing my yoga teacher training, getting into the more spiritual side of things, which had always been the way I was raised by my parents, but really exploring it in terms of my work and the service that I do in the world. As that started to grow, I started running these events in Sydney called Lunar Nights, which became these sellout monthly events that we ran every new moon, and they were very much centered around intention setting and manifestation, and they ran for about three years, and I think the reason that they did so well was because I had a very practical and relatable approach, and it was something that was missing from many of the spiritual teachings and the spiritual events that were happening in and around Sydney. 03:47 Once I saw the attraction of something like that, I thought, "Well, hang on. I've got this skillset of 10 years in the media. What can I do with this? How can I combine the two?" I put together a book proposal, and I sent it off last year, and that all started to come into fruition. I wrote the book in eight weeks- for full transcript and interview:  https://180nutrition.com.au/180-tv/jordanna-levin-interview/
