The Mediterranean diet and its positive effects in preventing and managing neurological diseases

United States, 8th Feb 2023, King NewsWire – Adopting a Mediterranean lifestyle benefits not only our bodies, but also our minds.

In the meeting between MAGISNAT ( and the committee of the Fondazione Policlinico Agostino Gemelli IRCCS (Rome, Italy), this very topic was addressed with considerable interest and involvement of all the researchers present (

Numerous studies have shown that diet influences the onset of neurological diseases. Consequently, it has been shown that there is a link between diet and cognitive function. 

“Eating properly, by following a Mediterranean-style diet, helps preventing and managing neurological diseases and brain aging,” stated Dr. Matteo Bertelli, President of the innovative spin-off MAGISNAT, during the meeting.

To better understand the positive effects of the Mediterranean diet on these diseases, it is good to clarify what they are and what their characteristics are.

Neurodegenerative diseases have multifactorial origins. These diseases lead to a progressive loss of neuronal activity, resulting in impaired cognitive functions of the brain.

And this is where the so-called Mediterranean diet (MedDiet) comes in: with its healthful ingredients—rich in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immune, neuroprotective, antidepressant, anti-stress and senolytic activity—it plays an essential role in the prevention and management of the aforementioned diseases. 

Particularly, this type of diet, being composed mainly of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes, white meats, fish, nuts, olives, and olive oil, is rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, probiotics, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, all elements that have been shown to be beneficial, safe, and cost-effective in the treatment of neurological diseases.

However, diet is not the only component of the Mediterranean lifestyle that benefits the body: what makes the difference is, more broadly, the Mediterranean lifestyle.

In addition to diet, it is important in such cases to engage in moderate physical activity, preferably done outdoors and in nature. This activity allows for the development of endorphins, which notoriously are a panacea for the health of the nervous system, and makes it possible to reduce stress levels, which negatively affect brain functions.

Another important feature of the Mediterranean lifestyle, which should not be overlooked, is socialization. People, by sharing moments of their day in a peaceful and carefree way, and being in contact with each other, feel better and thus their mood is also positively affected.

In short, the Mediterranean lifestyle proves to be the most comprehensive and successful method of keeping people healthy and in a good mood.

However, it is not always possible to follow this advice and, especially, to follow such a diet. This is why MAGISNAT has formulated a line of dietary supplements, called GARLIVE, that is based on vitamins and other natural molecules that are extracted from typical vegetables of the Mediterranean diet, such as olives.

Among MAGISNAT’s products, the dietary supplement GARLIVE Recovery, available on Amazon ( ), deserves special attention.

Its strengths include: the concentrated formula of olive tree polyphenols (i.e., this contains more polyphenols than two cups of extra virgin olive oil) and the high dosages of vitamins (among which, for example, vitamins of groups B, C, D). Specifically, one tablet contains more vitamins than 14 ounces of fruit ( ).  

It is thus a good idea to follow it, finding the best way to live a peaceful life in well-being.
