Darin Olien - Episode 130

“There is a need for us to be aware. So that we are not victims of this choice that was made over our health”

Darin is hands-down one of the nicest and most genuine blokes out there, it’s a huge privilege for me to be able to sit down and speak with a man like himself.

Darin has spent nearly 20 years exploring the planet discovering new and underutilised exotic foods and medicinal plants as a Superfood hunter. Developing many businesses and health products as a result.

He is also the co-host of the Emmy™ Award Winning, #1 Netflix docu-series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron.

Darin curiously explores people, solutions, and health as well as life’s Fatal Conveniences. Uncovering modern-day flaws and challenges undermining our health and our environment. Specifically when it comes to the insane amount of damaging toxins in our every day environment.

This conversation is going to open your eyes. GET READY!
