Despite it may not prove causation, the relation between the aging process and Mediterranean diet are very strong! The scientists point to the large amounts of antioxidants in this diet (olive oils, legumes, whole grains, veggies and fruits) as a main cause for this diet’s effect.
In fact, the antioxidants in these fruits reduce oxidative stress and inflammation connected with many chronic issues!

In order to follow the Mediterranean diet, your daily nutrition should include:

• Whole grains
• Fruits and vegetables
• Olive oil

• Herbs and spices

• Beans, nuts, legumes (unprocessed)

• Fish and seafood

• Cheese, poultry, yogurt and eggs

• A minimum of meats and sweets

This diet slows down the process of aging, does not reverse it!
