Recent research points to the health benefits enjoyed by those who consume a “Mediterranean Diet”. Most notably, the diet contains elements that are associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
So, what is a Mediterranean Diet and how can you enjoy the benefits? Very simply, it is a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, nuts, legumes, wine, cereals, fish and olive oil, while also being low in dairy, meat junk foods and fat. This dietary pattern has been linked to longer life spans, a healthy heart, and many other important health benefits The diet’s main nutritional elements include Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, tocopherols, polyphenols and essential minerals.
So, what if you’re not a gourmet chef trained in the ways of Mediterranean cooking or simple don’t have the time to cook every night? Make sure you are supplementing your diet with a high quality Omega-3 Fish Oil (try our Triple Action Omega for a powerful 1-2-3 combination of Omega-3s, Coenzyme Q10 and natural Plant Sterols for superior heart support) and a potent multivitamin (like Perfect Multi Super Greens with the ORAC value of more than 10 servings of fruits and vegetables plus 500 mg of vitamin C and 500 IU of vitamin A and 800 mcg of Folic Acid).
