Scientific studies reveal traditional Mediterranean healthy and longevity!
For decades scientist worldwide have been studying why Mediterranean people in the past lived more active and healthier lives than we do today and it seems that one of the essential factors was their diet.
Was it the sun, the fresh breeze, the laid back attitude… perhaps it was their sense of family or even mama’s cooking? Whatever it was, it made a huge difference. And so began the scientific mission to find out why, so that we could all enjoy the benefits.
Mediterranean people who lived the longest seemed to have something in common.
Did their traditional lives of growing their own food, fishing for their dinner daily and taking time out to sleep during the afternoon heat have something to do with it? Scientist found it difficult to measure siestas and fiestas but one thing that stood difficult out was their traditional diet.
Traditional Mediterranean life and the realities of today’s modern living.
Whilst it’s nice to imagine enjoying long, leisurely lunches of home grown cooked ingredients, eating freshly caught fish and sipping red wine on a sun-filled terrace every day, for most of us, it’s not possible outside of holidays and special occasions. The reality of our everyday lives is busy days packed with rushed meals and too much to do.
The good news is that research shows you don’t need to live in the Mediterranean region to enjoy some of the famous health benefits of the Mediterranean lifestyle.
People anywhere can reap the benefits of the traditional Mediterranean diet by including fresh fruits and vegetables, oily fish, olive oil and even a little red wine into their daily diet.
Renowned phyto-scientist Professor Masquelier found that specific ‘small flavanols’ present in red wine are crucial ingredients to Mediterranean wellness.
The active compounds in red wine (OPCs), together with those in olive oil (Hydroxytyrosol) and fish (omega-3s), form three of the most researched compounds associated with the benefits of the traditional Mediterranean diet.
Yet, whilst it’s fine to think that we can follow the same diet and lifestyle as Mediterranean people of the past, the reality is that most just don’t have the time to prepare meals of freshly grown, home cooked, ingredients from the Mediterranean region every day!
