The Mediterranean diet is the most studied diet in the world with ongoing research and evidence on its significant health benefits compared to any other diet. It is based on the traditional eating patterns of people in Greece, Crete, Southern France, and Italian regions which border the Mediterranean Sea.
The diet has been shown to improve heart health, reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, chronic kidney disease, depression, anxiety and breast, prostate and bowel cancers. It also can protect against cognitive decline including dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.
