The Mediterranean diet leads to better cognitive functions and memory

The Mediterranean diet does not only have beneficial effects for the cardiovascular health of those who follow it, but it can allow them to improve their memory and prevent or delay the effects of cognitive deterioration connected to aging. However, these beneficial effects are not enjoyed equally by everyone, which leads to questioning the type of interventions based on dietary recommendations to adapt them to the individual features of each person. These are the main results of a study published in Clinical Nutrition, led by researchers from the Research Group in Integrated Pharmacology and Systems Neuroscience and from the Research Group in Cardiovascular Risk and Nutrition of the Instituto Hospital del Mar for Medical Research (IMIM-Hospital del Mar) through the group in Psychology and Mental Health of the Biomedical Research Institute of Bellvitge (IDIBELL) and the University Hospital of Bellvitge, all from Physiopathology of Obesity and Nutrition group CIBEROBN. Also part of the research were the University of Valencia, the Rivira i Virgili University and the University of Navarre.
