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.
Food For The Future
Not all algae is created equal. At ENERGYbits®, we take pride in sharing the highest quality algae. It’s our sole focus. We use only the highest quality strains of spirulina and chlorella so our tablets contain the highest nutrient density available. Our quality control is extensive, including ISO 9000 certification, GMP certification, and FDA-approved lab testing for purity.
“Spirulina represents an interesting food for multiple reasons, rich in iron and protein, and is able to be administered to children without any risk. We at WHO consider it a very suitable food.”– United Nations World Health Organization (WHO), Geneva, Switzerland June 8, 1993
To food scientists, it’s a beautiful blue pigment. To researchers it’s an incredibly promising protein because of its antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Phycocyanin has a growing base of scientific research demonstrating its profound impact on health. 
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)
“SOD” is that it is a key antioxidant in the body. Studies show that spirulina raises SOD levels while reducing muscle fatigue and cellular damage.  Spirulina has the highest concentration of SOD in any food.
The pigment that makes plants green helps your body detoxify too – and there is a lot of it in algae. For comparison, spinach has one of the highest chlorophyll contents of any food. It contains 23.7mg per cup (30g). The equivalent amount (30g) of chlorella contains a whopping 640mg of chlorophyll!
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
Chlorella Growth Factor is a compound formed in chlorella during photosynthesis. It stimulates DNA and RNA production, allowing chlorella to grow incredibly fast. You might have guessed that CGF is only found in chlorella. What you may not have guessed is that it has been linked to a range of health benefits including cell health, immune support, and anti-aging.
