I’ve seen the benefits of the Mediterranean diet in my cholesterol, weight and general well-being. But, I just found an article that shows this lifestyle may even help reduce depression. A Spanish study followed 11,000 people who followed the Mediterranean diet closely and found that these people had a 30% reduction in the risk of depression than those whose diet had few of the crucial Mediterranean elements.

There was a whole host of positive benefits that have been found by following the Mediterranean-style diet, including “the diet may improve blood vessel function, fight inflammation and repair oxygen-related cell damage – all of which could reduce the chances of developing depression.” – according to the study, published in the Archives of General Psychiatry journal.

From what I read, it is beneficial to those who MOST closely follow the diet. So, it seems as if you can’t just take some aspects of the diet and enjoy all the benefits, but you must really adhere to the plan to reap all the health rewards.
