Food & Science
for Your Natural Well-
The Mediterranean diet is not only a healthy nutritional diet but a holistic approach to life. Sharing meals with friends and family for instance helps to cope with high levels of physical and mental stress. Taking time for sitting, having a meal and drinking a coffee without rushing, can facilitate the hard work of the “friendly” bacteria in your gut and hence optimize your ability to digest and absorb nutrients.
The physical activity and the social engagement are beneficial for the status of mind, keeping your mind away from mood disorders and depression.
An infusion with 5 g of fresh basil with lemon juice and sugar is strongly indicated in gastric spasms.
The optimum levels of micronutrients such as vitamins B, E, phytochemicals, antioxidants and minerals from whole grains in the Mediterranean diet can be associated with a decrease in
cardio vascular diseases, type-
metabolic syndrome. Besides the oleic acid, a wide range of different phenolic compounds from olive oil in the Mediterranean diet reduce body inflammation, remove the “bad” cholesterol in your blood vessels, kill pathogens and improve bone health.
The drop down of C reactive protein and homocysteine while eating plenty of fruit and vegetables daily, with a Mediterranean diet, are clear evidences of a reduction in inflammation and chronic degenerative disease. As the best example of beneficial effects of alcohol for the body, the consumption of a daily glass of red wine with meals in a Mediterranean diet will carry the right amount of antioxidants to fight against free radical excess and hence stress.
A moderate consumption of poultry, eggs and dairy products, as well as a drastic reduction in the intake of meat and sweets are other fundamental keys to the success of a Mediterranean diet.
