Stay young by eating a Mediterranean diet

Researchers have revealed the secret to stay young; follow a Mediterranean diet


The Mediterranean diet that consists of olive oil and fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and poultry, has been shown to reduce the risks of such diseases as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and heart disease.

The researchers from Boston, US followed 5000 nurses over 10 years, who adhered to the diet; It revealed that they had longer and healthier telomers.

Telomers protect the end of chromosomes from declining. As we get older, our telomers get shorter which links to age related diseases.

Coconut oil could ward off Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease

New research finds that diets high in fats, particularly coconut oil, postpones ageing of the brain


Coconut oil contains medium chained fatty acids, which go straight to the liver through the digestive tract and easily convert into energy or ketones; that fuels the brain, when we are low in these sugar reserves, the brain eats into it’s own cell resources, thus aging the brain.

The study analysed mice with the same defective DNA as Cockayne syndrome, which causes premature aging in its patients, with a life expectancy of 10-12 years. The mice were fed on a high fat diet; the results showed their ageing process was postponed such as impaired hearing and weight loss. The high fat diet also postponed the aging of the brain, because the coconut oil gave the brain extra fuel to allow it to repair it’s cells.

This new study gives hope to patients who age prematurely and patients who live with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
