By now, you’ve probably heard me talk a lot about superfoods – foods that are LOADED with essential nutrients like omega 3s, polyphenols and antioxidants. You might also know that some of my absolute favorites include foods like avocados, mushrooms, and macadamia nuts. 

Well on this episode I’m joined by Catharine Arnston, a wellness thought leader and entrepreneur, who says there’s a more groundbreaking superfood on the radar – and it’s one of the most exciting yet. 

In fact, she says it could be bigger than collagen – and NASA has even referred to it as the answer to world hunger!  

We’re talking all about ALGAE.

Catharine and I discuss how certain types of algae can be used to support your energy levels, immune response, skin health and so much more. We also explain how algae works to fill nutritional gaps, and ultimately, how it might help support your immune system to set you up to handle serious illness.
