Energy Bits are Real Food with Catharine Arnston – Chiro Hustle Podcast 558

Catharine Arnston is an expert in algae nutrition, a wellness thought leader, an experienced entrepreneur, and sought after speaker. She has an MBA, BA Hons and is a Board Certified Health Coach,

Catharine's journey into the fascinating world of algae began in 2008 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would improve her healing. Catharine left her 25-year corporate career to help her sister identify which foods were alkaline and this led her to algae – the most alkaline, chlorophyll-rich, high-protein, nutrient-dense food in the world. When Catharine learned that algae’s vast healing properties were documented in tens of thousands of scientific studies but that none of these studies or benefits were known outside of Asia, she knew she needed to do something. And so ENERGYbits” was bom.

Catharine has spent the last thirteen years researching algae, writing papers, giving presentations, lecturing at conferences, and speaking on 250+ podcasts to explain the benefits of algae. To do this, she read thousands of scientific papers that detailed, validated, and confirmed algae’s nutritional, health, longevity, and global benefits. Remarkably none of these findings are known
by consumers. It is Catharine's vision and passion to change this and while she is not a Ph.D, her scientific fluency allows her to explain algae with such simplicity and clarity, it quickly becomes obvious why algae is something we all urgently need.

Catharine's passion for algae is contagious, inspiring and thought-provoking. Her efforts have led to algae being better understood by educators, consumers, doctors, and wellness practitioners. Even the United Nations and NASA endorse algae as the most nutrient-dense food in the world and the answer to world hunger. Catharine’s extensive knowledge and playful personality is both entertaining and educating and her speaking style leaves audiences informed, uplifted, and hopeful.

Now let’s hustle!



LUKE MILLETT (PRODUCER):  Hey guys, welcome to episode 558 of the Chiro Hustle Podcast. I'm your producer, Luke Millett, and here's your host, James Chester.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  So today we had the opportunity of interviewing Katherine Arnston. If you want to hear the story of energy bits and how it's actually real food, stay tuned. Welcome back. This is another episode of the Chiro Hustle Podcast. Today I have Katherine Arnston on with me, and she has a product that's called energy bits. And it's algae. And we're going to talk all about how it helps with people's brain and guts and longevity and how it's healthy for people to have in this nutrition portfolio of how it's packed with vitality for people. So we're going to talk all things energy bits here in a moment, and I'll introduce Katherine soon. I'll let you know the big why. What do we do over here at Chiro Hustle? Well, first things first is the Second Amendment, freedom of speech. We believe in everybody has a story to tell, and no one should be censored or marginalized with their message. So we've never done that. We never will do that. Everybody that's spoken on our platform has been published. So really cool. We don't shadow ban people, or we don't deplatform or cancel people. So I think that's really like today's era. We have to mention that stuff. The only thing that we do is we protect people's family health freedom and medical freedom. So we share these stories. So we want people to be able to integrate with us and be able to speak their truth and feel comfortable doing so. Then we get a bit more chiropractic, and we'll talk a little bit more on the levels of philosophy. We believe in protecting the sacred trust. If you don't know what the sacred trust is, stop this interview. Go and search for BJ Palmer's last words, BJ Palmer's sacred trust. You're going to know more about chiropractic than you previously did. I guarantee you. And then we support and believe in subluxation based chiropractic. And we also get to the more philosophical depth of what the chiropractic adjustment does. We believe that when man or woman, the physical gets adjusted, it connects them to man or woman, the spiritual. With that being said, Catherine, welcome to the show.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Well, thank you for having me. And thank you for all the great things that you and the chiropractic community do. I'm a loyal chiropractic client. And I believe everything that you've said and more.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah. Well, I had a chance to meet you at Dave Aspery's biohacking conference two years ago. Oh, gosh, where was it?


JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Beverly Hills, yeah. And ever since then, I've been looking at your business and seeing what you've been up to. And gosh, you've been on over 250 podcasts.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Way to go. I got to get this information out somehow. And thanks to you folks and podcasts where you want the real deal, the real science, it helps me share what I have. Because the mainstream is still not, doesn't seem to be interested in algae like our specialty folks are who are doing podcasts. So, thank you for giving me an opportunity to share what I've learned and what Asia knows and has known for 75 years, but people here in North America are still in the dark about.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah. You know, the thing I think I really appreciate about what you're doing most is you found your avatar out wet. Yes. Okay, you guys aren't going to have me on mainstream. So I'm going to go to the best case scenario influencers out there, people that are actually sharing the secret with people and people that are actually on purpose for a message that's greater than what they're filtering people through. I call the box God, the television.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Yes. Well, it's people versus prophets. So, and you know, when you've hit the truth, it resonates with you at a very deep soul level. And that's why I have resonated with algae from the moment I discovered it. And as you hear how it works with your body and your mitochondria to protect you, I'm hoping it will resonate with you too, because once you learn the truth, you can't unlearn it.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah, you know, and that's just that is it's vitality. It just gives people better nutrition and a better density of understanding that the body can heal from inside out. And the body who's not an extra in it simply needs to interference. But if it's actually getting real nutrients, if it's getting something in there that's actually given it more vitality, then that's really what we want. And I think that that's really something that we can talk about with the spirulina and the chlorella. Why are those things important to you?

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Well, what's important to me is helping people prevent chronic disease and unnecessary. Well, you don't prevent aging, but you do prevent or you can prevent declining. And we have been associated aging with declining for a very long time and it's not necessary. But like your car that needs gas to function and like your cell phone that needs electricity to be recharged, we can't assume that our bodies are going to function optimally if at all. If we don't give it what it needs to perform. And if we don't interfere by giving it things that it doesn't need like toxins. So the reason I like algae is that it does both of those things. It gives you the nourishment that you're not getting from any other place and there are some particular nutrients, particularly antioxidants that protect your mitochondria that your body makes for you from the moment you're born but stops after the age of 30. So it leaves us exposed to chronic disease. And our immune systems weren't built to sustain the toxic load that we are all carrying. The average adult in America has 700 toxins in their bodies. And so those interfere with the proper functioning of your cell structure, your mitochondria, your brain, your gut, pretty much everything. So and I'll give you a broad overview of what algae is and then we'll hone in on the two algae, spirulina and chlorella that do completely different things in your body and the nutrients that are in them that do make the difference because spirulina as you'll find out is really your number one for mitochondria health and chlorella algae is really your number one algae for your immune and gut health. And we'll go into that in more detail in that.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  So you became mentioned algae and you decided to start a company?

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Well yes and no. I never intended to build a company. What happened was I'm Canadian although I live in Boston and have been here for 30 years, 35 years and I had a corporate career which was okay but then 15 years ago my younger sister in Canada developed breast cancer and she's fine now but her oncologist told her to change her diet to an alkaline diet because it would help with her healing but we didn't tell her what it was or why specifically it works. So my baby sister called me because I love her and I'm just a good researcher. In fact I'm pursuing a PhD on all this research I've now developed. And I said I don't know what an alkaline diet is but I'll find out. It turned out to be a plant based diet because of the phytonutrients and the chlorophyll that have been proven for decades to build your immune system. So I went to town, I went to research, I found hundreds of PubMed articles, read 10 books, she changed her diet, she went through chemo, she completely healed. Then I decided that this knowledge needed to get out to more people and this was 15 years ago people weren't talking about plant based nutrition. So I gave up my career back to school, studied nutrition, got a certificate in health coaching, put a curriculum together teaching plant based nutrition trying to get people to eat more vegetables because I'd seen the science of what they could do for you and your health. And I got pushed back from everybody I was giving these lectures to because they said I know I supposed to eat more vegetables but I'm sure your chiropractic community who's listening right now I'm sure you hear the same thing because as you help your try to guide your patients to better health by improving their diet and by getting them to eat more raw foods and more vegetables and grass fed animal protein as well. It's a lot of work for them and I was hearing well the vegetables are heavy to carry home and they take too long to clean, they take too long to cook, I throw half of them out, I have arguments with my kids, with my husbands and they go bad. And so I thought okay if I need to help people get more nutrition into them and they're not going to eat the vegetables I need to find a way to get the nutrition into them without any work because clearly the vegetables were too much work. So I just circled back to found all the things I'd found for my sister and when I got to algae that's when the miracle happened because algae's got 100,000 studies documenting the different health benefits we're going to talk about some of them today. It's been used daily for 75 years in Asia, the Japanese don't leave their house without chlorella every day and the best thing about it is that they come in these little tiny tablets that you can swallow or chew and each one of these tablets has the same nutrition. This is spirulina and we'll talk about it in a minute and this is chlorella. Spirulina is a blue-green chlorella is a green algae. Each one has the same nutrition as an entire plate of vegetables. So while I'm standing here talking to you, okay, I just had a plate of vegetables. How easy is that? So when you said I wanted to start a company, no, I just wanted to help my sister and then after helping my sister, I thought, well, now I have this knowledge. I should help a few more people. So then I started teaching and then found out I couldn't help them because they didn't want to do a lifestyle change. And then when I found algae, well, this is the platform. This is the medium. This makes it easy for people to get the nutrition. It's been endorsed by NASA for 50 years as having the highest concentration of nutrition in the world, a thousand times more than any other vegetable. It's been endorsed by United Nations for 50 years because it has three times the amount of protein at stake and it's an eco-friendly, sustainable crop. So all along the way, I was just trying to help people because I'd had this epiphany that I wasn't satisfied in my corporate career. I was never really a good fit there. I'm always just a very helping individuals, problem solving, and this brought me a lot of joy. And so I just kept going. I used to sell my bags of algae tablets out of my knapsack at my gym and eventually I entered a lot of competitions and I eventually built a website and fast forward to here we are 13 years later. And I have a full team. We have big production. We have big farms growing the algae. I was on as you mentioned over 250s podcasts and I'm on a mission to change the world. I want to make it easy for people to get the nourishment they need to get rid of the toxins they don't and not to have to fight with their children or their parents or their kids or their significant others and just not have to spend as much work or time to get the nourishment that is scientifically proven to prevent or reverse chronic diseases and to just give you the nourishment that you need. The only downside with algae doesn't necessarily taste that great. But there's nothing and also up until now and we'll tell you some of the details in a minute, the quality has been very poor that was available in North America. So I made sure that whatever we did was to ensure the nutrient density and the safety. And then I also designed all the packaging and we try to make it really less weird because people think of algae blooms that close their beaches. And so I designed all the packaging. So it's very welcoming, very almost entertaining because I can't help anybody if I can't get the product into their mouth. So I wasn't ever really planning on building a company, but here I am with one. But it brings me a lot of joy to know that every day I'm helping people get the nourishment they need and preventing or correcting chronic disease.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Well you know, I've been thinking a lot about your product and I think a lot about like the medical arena. I think a lot about the health and wellness arena. And you know, there's really no money in healthy people unless you have a great product that can sustain them and give them support. And I think that that's what I've come away with understanding more about it. I mean, when we were off the camera, I was like, you're like a packet person. Like you sent me like five packets of information to read and I read them all. But I think like when you start to go down and take the deep dive to understand what your product is, what it's consisted of, why the ethos behind the product and now what you're doing with it 13 years later, it should inspire people to say, that might be good for me too. I hope so. Because I think that the product is really fundamental. And I do want to talk a little bit about the missing nutrients in people's diets and in the, you know, what they consume and how your product helps support that. So I know that there's Roundup and there's like Monsanto and everything that we touch at our grocery stores and at the supermarket. What is different in the profile of your product?

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Well, first of all, the problem is scientists are calling this era that we're in the great nutritional collapse because our soils have been over cropped, monocrobbed. There aren't any minerals left in the soil. So even if you are eating vegetables, there aren't enough nutrients or minerals that there used to be 50 years ago. So you're still nutrient deprived and a lot of the vegetables are grown in foreign countries. So they, they're harvested before they're ripe so the enzymes and nutrients can't even get to the fruit or the leaves. So you're eating a lot of fiber and you're getting a lot of calories, but you're actually not getting nutrients even if you're eating organic. So that's number one. And then the number two is the toxins part, which you alluded to with the Roundup. But their toxins are everywhere. They're in your detergents. They're in your carpets. They're in the air. They're in your clothing. They layer on in your immune system. And when they do tests and they do so few testing, but when they do test, they test the toxin in isolation. Well, we don't live in isolation. We, you know, that toxin is on top of some toxins you got from what you drank the night, the day before or what you ate the day before and, you know, left over mold spores. So that's why people are having such a hard problem with their health is because these toxins layer on top of one another. And when you don't get the nutrition that you need, your immune system isn't functioning properly and certainly neither is your mitochondria. LG is the answer for a number of reasons. First of all, and I hope I have time to talk about this in greater detail. It was the first life on earth four billion years ago. It's all documented in evolutionary science. So something that's been here longer than anything else in the world is pretty special. I don't think there's something spiritual about it, but that's number one. Number two, and hopefully again, we'll get to it. Your mitochondria are the most important part of your body. For those who aren't familiar with mitochondria and I've got some teaching materials, it is the little organelle that's inside of all your cells that generate energy, cellular energy. Now, this isn't the kind of energy that you need to run the grocery store just for the grocery store or just for your run. This is cellular energy that propels everything, powers everything in your body. You're walking, talking, thinking, sleeping, lymphatic system, drainage, detox, digestion, absolutely everything. So you always need cellular energy and the more you have, the better you are and the healthier you are and the longer you live and the better everything functions properly. And the cellular energy itself is called ATP and it's made by the mitochondria. But the problem is as you get older, your mitochondria get damaged so they aren't able to generate that cellular energy and this is when you're, so there's less of it, it's like money. You know, when you have more money, you can do more things and you have more choices. When you have more cellular energy, you can do more things and you have more choices. So when you have less cellular energy, there's a little, it's a smaller slice of pie of energy to go around to fight off cancer, to fight off those toxins to help you get to sleep, to help you do anything. And so it just doesn't work and with less and less mitochondria as you get older and fewer and fewer of them functioning optimally, this is when you slide into chronic disease or decline. And I'll get back in a minute to telling you exactly why algae is the best thing for your mitochondria but I do want to put together two of these concepts. So algae was the first life on earth and the most important thing therefore on earth and that the mitochondria are the, where the rubber hits the road for your health and you can't go any deeper into your cell structure than mitochondria. And here's the cool thing, your mitochondria evolved from algae and it's proven in science. It's called endosymbiotic theory. And so it's no surprise to me that everything that's in algae feeds and protects and supports your mitochondria and I'll get into some of that detail later on. So A, it's the most nutrient dense food in the world and I'll back up a little bit because I need you to understand what algae is. It's a food category. It's not technically a plant, it's not an animal, it's not a fruit. So it's a food category and there are two main types of subcategories. One is called macroalgae, the other one is microalgae. We're talking mostly about microalgae today but let me tell you what macroalgae is. It's that stringy stuff that washes up on shore also known as seaweed. Now it's good for you because it has lots of fiber in iodine because it comes from the sea but there's virtually zero nutrition. The other type of algae which is what we're talking about is microalgae and it's called microalgae because it's microscopic in size. Something like a million of these cells could fit on the head of a pin. That's how tiny it is. And contrast to the macroalgae, it has either no fiber or virtually no fiber. Microalgae has zero fiber and we'll explain that in a minute. But it's the most concentrated nutrition in the world. Completely opposite to macroalgae which lots of fiber, no nutrition, microalgae, lots of nutrition, zero fiber. So microalgae is everywhere which is the other difference between it and macro. Macroalgae is only in the sea. Microalgae is in the sea, the lakes, the rivers, the streams, your swimming pool, your aquarium, the soil. And there's tens of thousands of strains of microalgae, macroalgae is a couple. Two of the strains are blue, green and green. And an example of blue green algae is spirulina. And an example of green algae is chlorella. And I point this out because many of you may have been on the internet and noticed some articles about a blue green algae, toxic blue green algae. It's like the scary thing from the ocean, closing your beach. And you do want to stay away from that. But we're not talking about spirulina. There are many, many types of blue green algae. And algae is very important because it kills bacteria. Poor algae gets the bum wrap because when you have a blue green algae or any algae closing your beach, it only showed up because someone or something put toxins in the water. Algae is the cleanup crew. You can't see the toxins, but you can see the algae and it will absorb the toxins and kill the bacteria. So you do want to stay away from it because it is toxic. But it's not the bad guy. The bad guy is the person who put the toxins in the water. But the good news is the algae kills the bacteria in your body too. So when I'm talking about spirulina, as I will in a minute, it's not the stuff that you see closing your beach. And also, corrilla are harvested as food crops, not from the ocean. So spirulina grows in long narrow farms and corrilla is in round one. But the point that you need to know is that it's harvested as a food crop. It's called hydroponic. And lots of vegetables are made hydroponically. Tomatoes, lettuce. And the good thing for you to know is A, number one, algae is food. It's not a supplement. And B, it's grown in fresh water. So it's not from the ocean. So there are no toxins. And then what we do is after growing it in fresh water, then we air dry it into powder without high heat. And this is extremely important. And all the other algae companies use high heat. And I'll explain why it's so important in a minute. And then we just press them into these little tablets that we call bits because they're bits of nutrition. And that's why people have responded so easily and quickly and love art algae so much because it is so safe. We do third party lab tests. It's so effortless. You just swallow or chew. We recommend 10 spiraling in the morning and 10 chlorellate night. And I'll explain why in a minute. But it's so concentrated. We sell them in large bags that a bag of the thousand tablets has the same nutrition equal to 551 pounds of vegetables. 551 pounds of vegetables that you didn't have to carry home from the grocery store, clean cookie or throw out when nobody ate them. So very efficient nutrition. And so efficient that your kids, your grandparents, your pets, your newborns, absolutely everybody can eat them. And as I said earlier, one dabbler has the same nutrition as an entire plate of vegetables. So this gets me so excited because I know the CDC says 97% of Americans don't get their daily requirement of vegetables. And I have found the solution for you. If you like the taste, you can chew them. And there's no repeat, not like fish oil. By the way, they can replace fish oil. We'll talk about the two different spiraling in chlorellate in a minute because they do completely different things in your body. This is truly fast food. If you can swallow water, you can get the nourishment that you need and the detox capabilities that your body doesn't, you know, the get rid of the toxins your body doesn't want in seconds. There is no effort required. No cleaning, no mixing. No, no preparing, nothing. And it's the answer, I think, for us at this time in this juncture, in this toxic world that we live in full of food that has no nutrients in it.

Now let’s hustle!



JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  So you said there's two. There's spirulina and there's chlorella. You should take one in the morning, one in the evening. I've never heard that before, so maybe educate me as you educate our audience.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Sure. Spirulina is a blue-green algae, and it's called a blue-green algae because it has two pigments, a blue one called Fycosynin. I'm going to talk about that in a minute, but Fycosynin, in case you want to Google it, is PHY, COCY, ANIN. The other spirulon pigment is chlorophyll. What makes spirulina so important for you is the nourishment that it gives your cells. It has the highest concentration of protein in the world, the equivalent of three times the amount of protein at stake. This is why the United Nations has endorsed it for 49 years as the answer to rural hunger because it is the most concentrated protein source and an eco-friendly sustainable crop. Now spirulina's claim to fame is that it gives you energy, and how does it do it? Well, first of all, all that protein is already in amino acid form, so it's nothing for your body to have to break down, it has 18 of the 20 aminos, including the 9 that your body can't make, so it's a complete protein. And then it's also loaded with B vitamins. B vitamins are what convert the protein into energy. So, this is why it gives you energy in the moment, and it's also 40 vitamins and minerals rich in iron that carries oxygen to your blood. It's a vasodilator that brings more oxygen to your body, into your brain, and it has zero carbs. So people who are doing intermittent fasting or are in keto diet, it's terrific in the morning, gets you out the door, in seconds you get nourished, all your micronutrient needs are met, your mineral needs are met, and it didn't take you more than two seconds. How special is that? And the kind of energy you get is not like a stimulant that you would get from caffeine, chemicals, or sugar. It's just from nutrition. And it gets absorbed instantly, and that's why we actually got picked up by the Olympic athletes years ago because it's so nourishing and so energizing, but with steady energy. Because there's no caffeine, chemicals, or sugar, those are stimulants. Those give you rapid rise and a rapid crash. With spirulina, there's none of those stimulants, and the energy is very steady. But still, because spirulina is a bacteria, it has no cellulose wall, so there's nothing for your body to get to break down, to get access to all this protein and the nutrients and the energy in the moment. Now we'll talk about it in more detail, but one of the other things that the spirulina does because it has that blue pigment in it, which I mentioned before, phycosine. And what does phycosine do? Well, it speeds up the process of generating ATP. I don't want to get too geeky, but the process of ATP, the production process, there are four sort of stations of molecules embedded in your inner membrane of your mitochondria. And to generate ATP, these little electrons have to be passed from one station to the next sort of like a relay race, you know, racer hands off the baton. Now the phycosine, and it speeds up that process of the electrons going from one of these molecules to the next, so it speeds it up so it generates more ATP for you. So now you're getting more cellular energy long term. You get the energy in the immediacy from the aminos and the B vitamins, but you get the longer term energy from the ATP-approved ATP production. So that's why we called our spirulina energy bits because we wanted to make it easy. We didn't know if people could say or spell spirulina. So we thought, well, I call it energy bits. And I packaged it in blue because it's a blue green algae. I wanted to help people understand what it was. And I also put it in water because it was the first life on earth and it came from water. So that's why people take it mostly in the morning. You could take it any time of day, but mostly in the morning because that's when you're tired or you're hungry or before a workout. Now we recommend at least 10 tablets. Again, they're very tiny and about the size of a baby aspirin. One doesn't really do much. I mean, you could start with five if you wanted, but 10 gives you, satisfies your hunger for a couple of hours. If you're doing a good workout or you want it for a meal replacement, 30 would be better. They come in little pouches with 30 and then that's probably what you had. So, and there is no upper limit. We have NHL players that have 75 spirulina before a game because they need a lot of energy on the ice. There's lots of focus. I forgot to mention that it also improves your mental focus because of the essential fatty acids and also that phycosine. And there's a antioxidant we'll talk about in a minute called superoxidismutase that protects your mitochondria in your brain has the most mitochondria per cell. There's 2 million mitochondria per cell in your brain. So this is the first thing you should go to to protect your mitochondria because when your mitochondria are functioning properly, your brain is functioning properly. And a great book to read about that is called brain energy. Dr. Chris Palmer, who is a psychiatrist at the Harvard Medical School, just came up with this book about six months ago and he talks about how all brain disorders are due to damaged mitochondria. Everything. Doesn't matter whether it's depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder. Everything's due to mitochondria damage. And as you're going to find out if I have time, spirulina and the nutrients in spirulina are the most powerful, the most powerful part of spirulina, yes, you get energy and satisfied, is that it protects your mitochondria. It restores your mitochondria and it has nutrients in it that aren't found in any other food anywhere. And also not just in any spirulina, it has to be raw spirulina. And we're probably one of the few companies that don't use high heat to dry our algae. So it is a raw food. You could get frozen spirulina. It would do the same thing, but it's hard to find. So in general, spirulina, just to remember, very nourishing, great for brain health, great for mitochondria health and great for energy both in the immediacy and also long-term. So that's your little summary on spirulina.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah, I think it's important for people to know. And I know that we're coming up on the edge of our time together today, but let's do a couple quick hits.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Can I do chlorella?

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Because it's quite different. Yeah, you can do chlorella.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Okay, so chlorella, it's high, it's claimed to fame is that it's highest in chlorophyll. Chloreophyll is very, very important nutrient and it builds your blood and also builds your cell walls. I'm going to show you something you may not know about chlorophyll. Chemical composition of chlorophyll is almost identical to your hemoglobin. This is hemoglobin. This is chlorophyll. So when you take, and there's no chlorophyll in our vegetables anymore. So even again, if you're organic, you're not getting any chlorophyll, so you're not building your blood, you're not building your cell walls. And chlorella has 25 times more of the chlorophyll than liquid chlorophyll and even has 500 times more than arugula. Chloreophyll is very cleansing and chlorella has a hard cell wall that attaches to toxins, all kinds of toxins, heavy metals, alcohol, lactic acid, doesn't matter what it is, pulls them out and chelates them. So it helps your body repair, which is why we recommended it at night. Because when you're sleeping, you're going through a detox repair cycle. You take chlorella before bed, you will facilitate that detox and repair. It also has the highest tryptophan in the world, which is a precursor to melatonin, so it helps you sleep. So it has all the, now this one has fiber because it does belong to the plant kingdom, which is why there's a plant leaf on the package. And so it does feed your gut biome as well, because you were talking about that earlier. So the gut by, so chlorella, which we call recovery bits, heals your gut and spirulina heals your brain. And there's the vagus nerve that attaches to, connects the two of them. So when you heal one, you help heal the second one. And because again, it comes in tiny tablets that you can swallow or chew, that makes it very, very accessible to people. So any, we sell only through chiropractors, by the way, medical offices, biohacking centers were not sold through regular chain stores. So we are very used to and want to continue selling through the chiropractic community. So if anyone is looking to help their patients embrace better mitochondria health, better immune health, better energy, improve their longevity, and they don't want to have a lot to work to do it. These are, these two algae are your solution. In fact, to help people understand the difference between the two of them, I realized because I speak at a lot of conferences and hotels, this is so nourishing. Think about it as room service. I got a hotel and chlorella is so cleansing, it's like housekeeping. So this is room service and this is housekeeping. Or again, think of this for brain food, brain health and chlorella as gut health. The two of them do completely different things, work in conjunction. You can take them alone together with food instead of food. I have so many every day, I mean, I eat real food, but I don't know what I would do without these two and they're great to travel with.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Well I think there's a lot to discuss about the product more. I would like to potentially do another interview with you and talk to you more about how AIDS immune health and how people can get the algae and supplement with another product rather than the collagen powders, the fish oils.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  Oh, it has more collagen than collagen powder. Crazy, right?

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah, I just, I think that there's a lot still to discuss about the topic of algae. And I think that there's a lot of health benefit around it. And if people knew how good it was, just like chiropractic, they would utilize it more frequently and add it into their chiropractic lifestyle. Exactly.

CATHARINE ARNSTON (GUEST):  I tell people and says asking why would you take algae? I'd say, well, why wouldn't you? When you know what it does and why it does what it does, it's the key that unlocks the door to good health is the best way to describe it. And it's effortless. In North America, we need that effortless issue. People want fast food. This is fast food, except it's real food. All that other stuff is just, I don't know what to call it, it's not food. So, and this was a gift from us to us from Mother Nature. We just grow it so carefully and so that preserves all the nutrients, including those ones I alluded to, superoxide, dismutase and phycosine, which are both damaged, completely damaged by high heat and almost everything else that's on the market uses high heat to dry it. So I'm very proud that we don't do that. And then we chose to do it that way because, again, I wasn't planning on starting a company. I just wanted to help people get healthy. And so the way you do that is you pay attention to the detail and you put people first. So that's what we always have done.
