Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, a high-quality extra virgin olive oil producer, responds to an article from The Guardian reporting that following a Mediterranean diet can significantly lower the risk of dementia.

An article published by The Guardian on December 8th, titled “Healthy diet may prevent dementia, say doctors,” has reported that following a Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of dementia even better than preventative drugs. The article quotes Jeremy Hunt, the British Health Secretary, who has referred to dementia as “a health and care ‘timebomb.’” The article states that number of people diagnosed with the condition “expected to triple worldwide to 13 million by 2050, according to a recent report.”

With these numbers on the rise, a group of esteemed professors and medical professionals have reported that a healthy diet dramatically reduces one’s risk for dementia. They also have stated that focus needs to be taken away from “dubious drugs” and placed on diets. The article mentions London cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, who believes that a Mediterranean diet would be the cure to the western world’s increasing obesity crisis, and as a result, the increase of chronic illness.

Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, responds to this article by sharing the same concerns as Dr. Malhotra. “The remedy is simple. Look to nature’s medicine cabinet: healthy fats and foods rich in nutrients. Think of your body like a car. If you treat it poorly and use poor quality fuels, it will not run very well. The brain needs healthy fats like Omega-3s for optimum performance. Extra virgin olive oil is a terrific way to incorporate Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet because you can put it on just about everything!”

Sexenian adds, “A Mediterranean diet has proven again and again to be a fool-proof way to optimize your physical and mental health. With olive oil, a super food that has been used and celebrated for 4,000 years for its health benefits, at its core, the Mediterranean diet is a great way to strive for overall wellness.”

Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
