Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Preserves Memory & Protects Brain Against Alzheimer’s

Extra-virgin olive oil preserves memory, protects brain against Alzheimer’s. The Mediterranean diet is associated with a variety of health benefits, including a lower incidence of dementia. Now, researchers have identified a specific ingredient that protects against cognitive decline: extra-virgin olive oil. In a new study, the researchers show that consumption of extra-virgin olive oil protects memory and learning ability and reduces the formation of amyloid-beta plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain; markers of Alzheimer’s disease.

The Temple team also identified the mechanisms underlying the protective effects of extra-virgin olive oil. “We found that olive oil reduces brain inflammation but most importantly activates a process known as autophagy,” explained senior investigator Domenico Praticò, MD, Professor in the Departments of Pharmacology and Microbiology and the Center for Translational Medicine at LKSOM. Autophagy is the process by which cells break down and clear out intracellular debris and toxins, such as amyloid plaques and tau tangles.

“Brain cells from mice fed diets enriched with extra-virgin olive oil had higher levels of autophagy and reduced levels of amyloid plaques and phosphorylated tau,” Dr. Praticò said. The latter substance, phosphorylated tau, is responsible for neurofibrillary tangles, which are suspected of contributing to the nerve cell dysfunction in the brain that is responsible for Alzheimer’s memory symptoms.

Previous studies have suggested that the widespread use of extra-virgin olive oil in the diets of people living in the Mediterranean areas is largely responsible for the many health benefits linked to the Mediterranean diet. “The thinking is that extra-virgin olive oil is better than fruits and vegetables alone, and as a monounsaturated vegetable fat it is healthier than saturated animal fats,” according to Dr. Praticò.

In order to investigate the relationship between extra-virgin olive oil and dementia, Dr. Praticò and colleagues used a well-established Alzheimer’s disease mouse model. Known as a triple transgenic model, the animals develop 3 characteristics of the disease: memory impairment, amyloid plagues, and neurofibrillary tangles.

The researchers divided the animals into two groups, one that received a chow diet enriched with extra-virgin olive oil and one that received the regular chow diet without it. The olive oil was introduced into the diet when the mice were six months old, before symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease begin to emerge in the animal model.

In overall appearance, there was no difference between the two groups of animals. However, at age 9 months and 12 months, mice on the extra virgin olive oil-enriched diet performed significantly better on tests designed to evaluate working memory, spatial memory, and learning abilities.

Studies of brain tissue from both groups of mice revealed dramatic differences in nerve cell appearance and function. “One thing that stood out immediately was synaptic integrity,” Dr. Praticò said. The integrity of the connections between neurons, known as synapses, were preserved in animals on the extra-virgin olive oil diet. In addition, compared to mice on a regular diet, brain cells from animals in the olive oil group showed a dramatic increase in nerve cell autophagy activation, which was ultimately responsible for the reduction in levels of amyloid plaques and phosphorylated tau.

“This is an exciting finding for us,” explained Dr. Praticò. “Thanks to the autophagy activation, memory and synaptic integrity were preserved, and the pathological effects in animals otherwise destined to develop Alzheimer’s disease were significantly reduced. This is a very important discovery, since we suspect that a reduction in autophagy marks the beginning of Alzheimer’s disease.”

Dr. Praticò and colleagues plan next to investigate the effects of introducing extra-virgin olive oil into the diet of the same mice at 12 months of age, when they have already developed plaques and tangles. “Usually when a patient sees a doctor for suspected symptoms of dementia, the disease is already present,” Dr. Praticò added. “We want to know whether olive oil added at a later time point in the diet can stop or reverse the disease.”

Report: Lead detected In 20% of baby food samples

The Environmental Defense Fund, in an analysis of 11 years of federal data, found detectable levels of lead in 20 percent of 2,164 baby food samples. The toxic metal was most commonly found in fruit juices such as grape and apple, root vegetables such as sweet potatoes and carrots, and cookies such as teething biscuits.

Bragg Organic Olive Oil

Olive oil is mostly unsaturated oil consisting primarily of oleic acid (an omega-9 monounsaturated fatty acid), linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid), palmitic acid, and stearic acid. In addition, olive oil is a significant source of lupeol, luteolin, and oleanolic acid. Olive oil has been shown to reduce oxidative DNA damage and improve coronary heart disease by reducing blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and inflammation. Olive oil consumption was shown to be related to less cognitive decline in one study of 8,028 French subjects aged 65 years and over, and has been shown to reduce pain and disability in those with arthritis.

Your Wait-Line Is Your Life-Line

Your Wait-Line is your Life-Line

Page 75 to 76 in Bragg Healthy Lifestyle

If you’re sporting a large waistline, your risk of dying prematurely is nearly double. The reason is because belly fat, often fondly referred to as a “spare tire” sends out a toxic stream of chemicals impacting the whole body. A waist size over 35” in women and over 40” in men greatly increases the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and more. Dr. Oz.

It’s Proven – Light Eaters Live Longer

Dr. Paul Bragg’s research and interviews with people who remained vigorous at ages over 100 years revealed that they ate sparingly, never over-ate and chewed thoroughly! Their diets were well-balanced with simple, natural foods. Scientific tests made on controlled animal feeding have also proven that light eaters live longer and in better health. Always give thanks first (millions are starving), then chew food slowly & thoroughly (your stomach has no teeth)! Never eat in a hurry! Food bolted down overworks the stomach, intestines and heart! If you don’t have time to eat correctly, skip that meal! Learn about fasting on pages 137 to 149 in the Bragg Healthy Lifestyle book, shows skipping a meal is a good habit to develop when needed.

Your Wait-Line is your Life-Line, Date-Line and Health-Line!

Get a tape measure and measure your waist. Write down the measurement (women should be less than 35” and men less than 40”). If you consciously pursue vigorous abdominal and postural exercises combined with correct eating and a weekly 24 hour fast (and later on, 3 to 7 day fasts), in a short time you’ll see a more trim and youthful waist-line! Trim waist-lines can make people appear years younger. Now, let’s get yours down to where it should be, if it has grown too big and fat. It’s a trim, lean horse for the long race of life! I’m sure we all want longevity! Studies show the bigger the waist-line – the shorter the life-span. Living the Bragg Healthy Lifestyle is so wonderful. Your life and each day is a precious gift to treasure, guard and enjoy!

 It turns out that men who replaced 10% of their total daily calories from carbohydrates (such as rice, bread and sweets) with vegetable fats (such as olive oil and canola) after their cancer diagnosis had a 29% lower risk of developing lethal prostate cancer and a 26% reduced risk of death during a median of eight years of follow-up. In addition, adding a daily ounce of nuts to their diets was linked to an 18% lower risk of developing metastatic prostate cancer.
