What you eat could have a significant effect on your memory. The Mediterranean diet provides many health benefits, but can it be made even more effective?
That is what the reviewed research investigated. 522 participants both men and women at high vascular risk were followed for six and half years (Martinez-Lapiscinia EH,et.al.,2013). Two Mediterranean diets, either supplemented with extra virgin olive oil or mixed nuts were compared to a low-fat diet. Cognitive performance was evaluated using a Mini-Mental State Examination and also a clock drawing test.
Both of the Mediterranean diets, supplemented with either olive oil or nuts, improved the cognition compared to the low fat diet. The group with the most improvement was the group supplemented with extra virgin olive oil.
The "Special Effects Diet" provides you with the tools you need to implement a very effective way of eating to optimize your genetic potential.
