If you’re in search of a diet plan to improve your health, you may want to consider the Mediterranean diet.  More and more research articles are pointing people in this direction.  On the Mediterranean diet you can enjoy fruits, vegetables, fish, whole grains, healthy fats and even a glass of red wine here and there.

Fruits, vegetables, fish, whole grains, healthy fats, and even an occasional glass of red wine can protect the body from inflammation!

Research has shown that the Mediterranean diet reduces risk of heart disease, cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.  What do all these diseases have in common?  Inflammation!  Inflammation makes our bodies susceptible to disease.  It can and often does occur years before a diagnosis is made.  Other diseases that have been found to be associated with inflammation are: allergies, asthma, autism, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac, eczema, kidney failure, multiple sclerosis, stroke and many other diagnosis!

New research is pointing to an enhanced inflammatory response that is linked between a diet high in saturated fats.  A new study shows that eating the Mediterranean diet, which is low in saturated fat and high in monounsaturated fat, decreases the inflammatory response.

Obesity is often linked to a diet high in saturated fats, as well as chronic metabolic diseases.  Researchers studied healthy, lean individuals and obese adults in a randomized, cross trial for three weeks.  Researchers utilized diets that were high in palmitic acid, and another diet that was low in palmitic acid and high in oleic acid.  The researcher found that a diet high in palmitic acid increased inflammatory biomarkers in both blood and muscle, and impaired insulin action in women.

The Mediterranean diet decreased inflammation response and helps protected against diseases that are associated with inflammation!

The Mediterranean diet is perfect for those who do not want to completely eliminate a food group from their diets.  You would have to eliminate processed foods or fast foods, but there are so many options on the Mediterranean diet, that most people feel satisfied in making this lifestyle change!
