Catharine Arnston: Eating algae to age better Live Long and Master Aging

    • Fitness

Could eating algae be the secret weapon many of us have been searching for in the pursuit of longevity?  The microscopic form of life is consumed as part of a balanced diet is in some parts of the world, but it is also being hailed as a superfood that could help us age better. Of course there is nothing new about algae, which are photosynthetic microorganisms that live in water and grow hydroponically, that is, without soil. The common image is of an icky green film on ponds or areas of stagnant water, but algae grown specifically for consumption, are a potent source of protein and other essential nutrients. It has detoxifying qualities and its regular consumption is linked to a range of benefits including cell health and immune support. In this episode we meet Catharine Arnston, the founder and CEO of ENERGYbits, which makes algae tablets or “bits of whole food".
