Studying Greek EVOO’s effects on mild cognitive impairment

Greek researchers and clinicians investigated for the first time the effect of High Phenolic Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil (HP-EH-EVOO) versus Moderate Phenolic (MP-EVOO) and Mediterranean Diet (MeDi) as a therapeutic pharmaceutical natural compound for older adults with amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (aMCI). Amnestic MCI is usually a prodromal condition of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and is characterized by memory loss and inability to execute very complex activities of daily living. While there is no treatment for MCI and symptomatic-only treatment for AD, the global effort against cognitive disorders is focused on early detection and management of AD at the stage of aMCI.
