List of popular ingredients of the Mediterranean diet

The fact that the Mediterranean diet is healthy has been written many times. Scientists are systematically conducting various studies on the effects of this diet on human organisms. In recent weeks, the results of studies have been published, the subject of which was the impact of the Mediterranean diet on the level of sugar in the blood.

The results suggest that the Mediterranean diet improves glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes. Compared to the control group, the subjects showed a reduction in fasting glucose, a reduction in body mass index (BMI) and cholesterol levels. At the same time, a drop in blood pressure was observed.

So what do the Greeks eat that their diet works in such a beneficial way? It is known that the most effective combination of these components that interact with each other creates new compounds that positively affect organisms. Below you will find a list of products that form the basis of the Mediterranean diet:

  1. Olive oil is the basis of the Mediterranean diet. In Greece used everywhere and for everything. Its pro-health properties are already widely known. Greek olive oil is one of the best and this is confirmed by many awards and distinctions gained at various competitions.

gość Joanna: Widzieliśmy w tym roku przedziwne odciski w skałach na Balos i plaży Damnoni. Zażartowaliśmy sobie nawet,że to pewnie nasi prehistoryczni przodkowie i zwierzęta (ewidentne odciski łap) a tu się okazuje,że mogliśmy mieć rację
Uwielbiam Kretę, boli gdy się o tym czyta.
A jednak!
Dopiero co tam byliśmy
Właśnie się wybieram. Drugi raz w tym roku, nie wiem który w ogóle. Crete ❤️
gość dodekanezowiec: "Przywykliśmy uważać, że Afryka jest kolebką ludzkości" - a Kreta to taka wyspa między Europą a Afryką. Tak jak Rodos i Kos to już de facto Azja (tym bardziej Cypr). Stąd mnie jakoś ciągnie do tych bardziej południowych wysp niż np. europejskiego Zakynthos :)  
Każdy Grek ci powie, że pierwszy człowiek na ziemi był... Grekiem :)
