Recent research by the University of Edinburgh suggests that a Mediterranean diet could help towards preventing memory loss and brain shrinkage later on in life.
A recent study of pensioners based in the Scotland area discovered that those who had a Med inspired diet richer in fresh fruit, vegetables and olive oil were more likely to have healthier brains in comparison to those with alternative eating habits.
The Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits, olive oil, vegetables, cereal grains and beans whilst including a moderate amount of fish and dairy but with low volumes of poultry and red meats. The diet also includes wine which we know some of you will certainly be in favour of!
We love this research and have always recognised and respected the life-giving, richness and health benefits this region offers us.
