Extra virgin olive oil may be the secret to a long and healthy live. Just ask anyone living in one of the 5 Blue Zones (Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece, and Loma Linda, California) where life expectancy is his much higher than the rest of the world. But the quality of the olive oil you consume is essential and most of the ones we consume in the US are subpar. Join Lauren as she speaks to Katina Mountanos, the founder and CEO of Kosterina, a modern wellness company centered around high-antioxidant, early harvest, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) from her native home in Southern Greece.
In this episode they discuss how olive oil is good for our health, why it’s important to buy and consume the best olive oil, what makes olive oil high quality, the skincare benefits of EVOO, and how to properly use it in your skincare routine. You will never look at olive oil the same way again. And trust me, after having tried Kosterina olive oil, I get it.
