Following a Mediterranean Diet May Reverse Cognitive Decline in Elderly


The Mediterranean diet alone has been shown to improve HDL and triglyceride levels and reduce obesity rates in recent trials. Additionally, physical exercise and energy-restrictive dietary patterns have also been shown to improve HDL function. This week we would like to share with you a clinical trial conducted by PREDIMED-Plus, involving 391 adults with metabolic syndrome, over a 6-month intervention comparing two branches that had a good adherence to the Mediterranean diet, traditionally high in olive oil consumption. One of the study branches was assigned to a physical activity intervention and an energy-restricted diet (191 people) and the other as a control. Although no significant increase in HDL levels was observed, those who underwent the intervention had a weight loss of 3.83kg (95%CI 3.09 to 4.57) which was significantly higher compared to the control group, as well as a decrease in triglyceride levels.

Regarding the study of biomarkers and diet, we find a noteworthy review by Koelman et al. who have found that the Mediterranean diet has shown the greatest reduction in inflammatory biomarkers, such as IL-6, IL-1β, C-Reactive Protein. No substantial effects were observed for the additional dietary patterns studied in the intervention research, including the Dietary Adherence to Stop Hypertension diet, and vegetarian or vegan diets.
