Suffering from bone related problems; try a Mediterranean diet, say researchers, who have conducted study on the same. These days, bone mass loss and decline in bone strength have become a common problem, which affects people irrespective of their gender.
Lead researcher Jose Manuel Fernandez-Real was of the view that Mediterranean diet is rich in olive oil, which has been found to be quite effective in treating the problem of osteoporosis. At least, it has shown great effect in clinical studies, further quipped Jose.
It is not the first time when it has been said that Mediterranean diet is healthy for people. However, the only thing is that with every other study, its benefits keep on increasing and this time it's about acting as a way to treat bone related problems.
In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers assessed 127, who were aged between 55 and 80 years. The total number was divided into three groups; the first group was given Mediterranean diet, which was rich in mixed nuts. The diet was rich in virgin olive oil and the last diet was low fat.
"This is the first randomized study which demonstrates that olive oil preserves bone, at least as inferred by circulating bone markers, in humans", said Jose.
