In detail, the study applied to nearly 200 people aged 80 years, and asked each person to complete a form, including eating of food last year. Seven months later she underwent each and every one of these for my brain scan to measure brain size.
Researchers section of men and women into two groups: one is closely following the Mediterranean diet and the other does not only depend on the little of a healthy diet in her food components.
The results showed that the first group followed a Mediterranean diet, the brain size of the smallest members of five years from the brains of the group that did not rely on her food in the diet. ”

Many researchers have attributed the reason to contain this diet of antioxidants and inflammation. Studies have confirmed that this diet can reduce feelings of fear and danger which increases the effectiveness of the cognitive functions of the individual.
