Recently, an in-depth health study determined that a Mediterranean diet containing olive oil or nuts can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, strokes and heart attacks (click here for the full story). In summary, the research determined that by eating a Mediterranean diet with a high content of olive oil and nuts, in particular walnuts, as well as veggies, fruits and fish, you can improve your cardiovascular health dramatically. The result after that study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine: California's walnut and olive oil processors have experienced a wealth of interest in their products, reported the San Francisco Gate.
Adding to the excitement about olive oil and walnuts as the new superfoods: A new survey conducted by USA Today among weight loss and health experts named the Mediterranean diet as the best anti-aging diet, indicating that by taking a holistic health approach to your menus, you can extend your life and improve the quality of your longevity. With olive oil and walnuts posed to become the hottest super foods in 2013, consumers should take the time to invest in quality products and to understand how to follow the Mediterranean food plan for optimal health.
