Dear Kosterina Family,

At Kosterina, we are deeply interested in the ways that we can reconnect to our ancient superpowers for longevity and long-term health. This week, we're diving into a fascinating topic that has been part of the human practice since hunter-gatherer days and its impact is proven by modern science: Intermittent Fasting.

Feasting and fasting have been part of our human existence since the beginning of time (I wrote about how it shows up even in Greek culture here). We have long enjoyed and celebrated together over food, and then, survived through times of scarcity. Our bodies have spent centuries adapting to the uncontrollable, and sometimes, harsh conditions that we face.

So, it likely doesn't come as a surprise that scientific research has caught up with the impact that fasting can have on our health. In our convenience-focused, always-on modern world, our natural state comes in handy. 

While there are a myriad of health benefits that Intermittent Fasting can have on our health - like weight loss and heart health - the most interesting findings, in our view, center on longevity. Researchers have found that practicing Intermittent Fasting (reducing diet to 25% on certain days over the 2-week span) drastically reduces oxidative stress, which is linked to extended life spans and lowering risks of age-related diseases.

The bottom line? Intermittent Fasting in the modern world doesn't need to look like scarcity. Doctors suggest that even just limiting the hours we consume food can impact our long-term health for good. 

Ancient superpowers for the win!

Peace, love and EVOO,

Katerina

Calling all moms: EVOO does the trick

A couple of weeks ago, a good friend of mine told me an amazing story: her newborn baby was suffering from cradle cap, a form of eczema on the scalp, and she was at a loss for what to do. Her pediatrician recommended rubbing some olive oil on his scalp - and so, she grabbed her Kosterina bottle. Just like that, it was healed.
