Researchers have found in a study of mice that olive oil seems to aid in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. They gave two groups of mice food from a young age, before Alzheimer’s presented, and one group had extra virgin olive oil added to their diet. When autopsied at an older age, the ones with olive oil-enriched diets had less Alzheimer’s than the control group. The quality of olive oil matters as well. When buying for the home, always look for extra virgin, organic, in a dark glass or steel container, and keep away from heat sources.
- After spending billions on finding a medicine to help with Alzheimer’s there is still no know cure or medication to help.
- After experimenting on me e scientists found that olive oil helped with brain inflammation and they think this will help with Alzheimer’s.
- It is important to buy the right oil, make sure it is in the right container and used by its sell by date for best results
“The beneficial brain effects of olive oil have been known for decades. Now a new study shows exactly how it keeps you mentally sharp—and why it may be the best weapon against Alzheimer’s.”
