The heart health ben­e­fits of the Mediter­ranean diet are well-known—and now re­search in The Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Nu­tri­tion proves that eat­ing Mediter­ranean sta­ples like olive oil, nuts, fish, fruit and veg­eta­bles can safe­guard bones too. In a study of more than 1,000 peo­ple over age 65, par­tic­i­pants with os­teo­poro­sis who fol­lowed the Mediter­ranean diet for 12 months showed im­proved bone den­sity, par­tic­u­larly in the bones around the hip that are com­monly prone to frac­ture. Study sub­jects who didn’t fol­low a Mediter­ranean diet ex­pe­ri­enced typ­i­cal agere­lated bone loss.
