Researchers from the University from Harvard have determinedé a quantity olive oil à consume every day to protect your health mental.

We have known this for years. The Mediterranean diet, which consists of: base your diet on the consumption of fresh, seasonal products (fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, etc.) and vegetable oil (olive, almond, coconut , etc.) tends à preserve life expectancy. And the star of this type of diet, olive oil, has long been one of the foods with health benefits. have been proven. New observations even today indicate that olive oil could act on increasing life expectancy "in good health" this time.

Recent analyzes have shown that olive oil had a protective effect against cardiovascular accidents and delayed the onset of mental illnesses. Among these, a survey carried out in the United States is a great first. by researchers from the University at Harvard to nearly 92,000 people and for nearly 28 years, she delivered. valuable observations on the relationship between a diet and olive oil base and the risks of death linked to it dementia, the number of which continues to increase every year.

Thanks to à a questionnaire on diet, these thousands of men and women had to take part in a questionnaire on food. Evaluate their eating habits, particularly on the types of oils and fats used. Which notably made it possible to obtain results without appeal: start from a certain quantity of olive oil consumed every day, we significantly reduce the risk of death linked to it. dementia.

Harvard researchers have in fact determined that "the consumption of at least 7 grams of'olive oil every day (i.e. half a spoonful)  would suffice à reduce the risk of death linked to this disease by 28%. dementia compared to consuming very little or not at all. The effects of consuming olive oil on mortality linked to Dementia would be even more visible in women, who were reported to be more common in women. proportion of 65% during the survey.

The questionnaire submitted did not take into account the quality of the application. of the oils consumed, nor the other eating habits of the people interviewed. But its contribution remains considerable. No study has reached such magnitude until now. Even less in the United States where; the Mediterranean feeding mode is only slightly developed; and the consumption of olive oil is very low, according to the researchers themselves.

The latter indicate that in addition to the fairly robust number of participants in their sample, 5000 diedé of diseases linked to dementia over more than 20 years of study. Enough to further strengthen their conclusions.
