Darin Olien

founder and visionary of SuperLife, is the first ever health and wellness expert to be coined a Superfood Hunter.He is known uniquely within the health and wellness community as an exotic superfood expert, supplement formulator, and environmental activist who travels the planet to discover new and underutilized medicinal plants. 

Inspired by his travels around the world, he has created an individualized approach to achieving optimal health through small changes and daily habits based on the wisdom of global cultures. It’s his no-judgement, progress-focused, supportive approach that gets results.

Darin’s interest in food and nutrition began when a college football injury drove him to uncover better ways to heal his body. He realized there had to be a better option out there after he struggled to recover using only traditional Western medicine treatments that failed to address the healing potential of his diet and lifestyle choices. It’s then that he began to pursue a healthier lifestyle and deeper understanding of how hydration, nutrition, and exercise can truly impact the human body. Darin changed his major, studying Exercise Physiology and Nutrition. He now holds a Bachelor degree in this field as well as a Masters in Psychology.  Today Darin is widely recognized as an authority and valuable resource on plantbased nutrition, supplement formulation and elite performance programs, which he has created for some of the top athletes in the world.


After 20+ years of travel and unwavering dedication to research, Darin published his book,SuperLife: The 5 Simple Fixes That Will Make You Healthy, Fit & Eternally Awesome in 2015 at the same time that the online SuperLife community was founded. One year later, the leading SuperLife 10-Day Nutrition program was launched, which has helped thousands successfully reclaim their health and experience the healing power of plant-based nutrition.
