El consumo de aceite de oliva virgen extra reduce el riesgo de padecer algunas de las enfermedades más prevalentes


Adherence to the Mediterranean diet, a predominantly plant-based diet high in extra virgin olive oil, is considered one of the world’s healthiest dietary patterns. Given that the Mediterranean diet is associated with several positive health outcomes, including reduced risk of coronary heart disease, cardiovascular disease, some obesity-related cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cognitive impairment, lower blood pressure, and improved quality of life, there are two recent studies that provides further evidence for promotion of this diet in other outcomes less explored.

A new narrative review synthesized all available evidence exploring the link between diet and sleep outcomes in older adults. Researchers found that following a Mediterranean diet demonstrated some beneficial effects in improving sleep outcomes among older adults who frequently experience reduced sleep quality and quantity (as compared to younger adults). A possible mechanism for such advantageous effects could be the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, found in commonly consumed Mediterranean foods such as olives and grapes.

Moreover, the evidence on the effects of the Mediterranean diet on cardiometabolic health in other populations such as pregnant women is sparse. Given the adverse maternal outcomes (i.e., preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, or preterm delivery) associated with a worse metabolic profile, explore how adherence to the Mediterranean diet could improve such effects deserves attention. In a recent study from the GESTAFIT Project, a lower cardiometabolic risk during gestation was found among women with higher intake of fruits, vegetables and fish and lower intake of refined cereals and red meat.
