Olive oil is widely known for its cardio-protective properties associated with its phenolic compounds. However, during olive milling, around 99% of polyphenols are lost in process by-products. A recent study proposes the use of the olive oil by-product, called “pâté”, as a nutraceutical to improve cardiovascular risk markers. To support this claim, a cross-over clinical trial was conducted among 19 patients who were given a phenolic nutraceutical and a placebo. The results revealed a significant reduction in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, in addition to positive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. This study opens a new line of research focused on the reuse of olive by-products as nutraceuticals, beneficial for both human health and the planet.

To this day, numerous studies show a positive association between the Mediterranean diet (MD) and a healthy body composition. On this topic, a cross-sectional study was conducted in perimenopausal women to assess the association between adherence to the MD and tobacco consumption with body composition. It was observed that participants with higher MD adherence smoked less and had a healthier body composition during perimenopause. Likewise, the MD supplemented with virgin olive oil was associated with a significant reduction in weight and BMI.

In light of current events, studies are evaluating the impact on health of diet and lifestyle changes during the coronavirus lockdown. A longitudinal study of Spanish children evaluated the negative effects of COVID-19 confinement on children's lifestyle. The authors observed an increase in sedentary behavior and time spent on screens. In relation to diet, despite an increase in MD scores, adherence did not reach medium or high categories. The study attributed the improvement in adherence to more time and interest towards cooking at home.
