Icaria is a small Greek island known as a blue zone due to the high levels of health and high life expectancy of locals. Around one in three Icarians live into their 90’s and there are much lower rates of musculoskeletal injury, cancer, heart disease, depression and dementia than in the rest of the world.
Icarians remain physically active throughout their lives and into their final days. Put simply, with Icaria, you live better for longer!
