The Memory Booster
The Mediterranean Diet is associated with a multitude of health benefits. It has shown to:
- Prevent heart disease and strokes
- Keep you agile
- Halve the risk of Parkinson's disease
- Increase longevity
- Protect against type 2 diabetes
- And it can even reduce the risk of Alzheimer's!
According to Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy researcher Dr. Amal Kaddoumi, 'A molecule isolated from extra-virgin olive oil, oleocanthal, is a potent antioxidant and a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory natural product.' Kaddoumi's studies on oleocanthal and oleocanthal-rich extra-virgin olive oil show the compound is highly effective against Alzheimers-related behaviors.
What is Alzheimer's?
Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 percent to 80 percent of dementia cases.
How is Alzheimer's Diagnosed?
During the appointment, the specialist will evaluate:
- If the patient has impaired memory or cognitive skills
- If the patient exhibits changes in personality or behaviors
- The degree of the patient's memory, thinking impairment, or changes
- How the patient's thinking problems affect their ability to function in daily life
How can oleocanthal help Alzheimer's?
According to the study entitled “Solution state characterization of amyloid beta-derived diffusible ligands,” Biochemistry by R.W. Hepler and company, 'Neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer''s, is characterized by an increase of β-amyloid peptide oligomerization, known as amyloid-derived diffusible ligands (ADDLs), which are a toxic species responsible for neurodegeneration.' Studies show that after the administration of oleocanthal (OC), there were significantly lower rates of ADDL penetration through the blood-brain barrier, which then inhibits the possibility of Alzheimer's disease.
How can you incorporate EVOO into your diet?
Extra Virgin Olive Oil isn't limited to just frying food; you can even use it in vinaigrettes, emulsion blends, cocktails, or taking it as it is. EVOO contains what is considered a healthy fat; you don't need to worry about bad cholesterol building up over time if you drink it to keep your memory sharp. But, if the taste of pure olive oil irks you, you can mix it into a freshly squeezed fruit juice to help it go down easier.
There are absolutely no risks to a Mediterranian Diet; in fact, it is the healthiest in the world. It can be directly attributed to the consumption and use of olive oil as opposed to other oils that are rich in trans and monosaturated fat.
