EVOO, the acronym for “extra virgin olive oil,” has been shown to preserve neuron connections in the brains of mice. It has also reduced brain inflammation, a condition associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
A third key benefit of ingesting EVOO is an activation of “the autophagy process, whereby intracellular debris and toxins are removed.” When autophagy is weak, Alzheimer’s can occur.
So keep those cognitive gears running smoothly with EVOO, a key ingredient of the healthful Mediterranean diet.
