One of the most regarded culinary traditions in the world is Mediterranean cuisine, thanks to this it has been named Immaterial heritage by UNESCO. It is very popular among diners due to the many health benefits it brings and the variety of ingredients in it.
It is characterised by the use of seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as olive oil (the King of ingredients), fish, meat, wheat and flour. Thanks to its ingredients, its contribution to saturated fat is low and it provides a high percentage of mono unsaturated fats. Provides a good balance of omega 3 and 6 oils and antioxidants, fibre and complex carbohydrates.
Besides this, it is a great diet to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, according to the Mediterranean diet foundation “the consumption of blue fish, minimum once a week, is very healthy since these fish have oils that are similar to those in vegetables and which protect from heart disease”
Another benefit is memory improvement, several studies have proved that people who adopt this diet, have improved their memory and speech, this happens thanks to the properties of some of the ingredients used, such as nuts which contain a high amount of omega 3 oil, blue fish that has vitamins, minerals and omega 3 and of course, the variety of fruit and green leafy vegetables that bring vitamin C and antioxidants.
Mediterranean diet combined with exercise routine every day can be an excellent protection against chronic disease such as Diabetes and Alzheimer.
