Manage Alzheimer's with High Phenolic Olive Oil

Updated: Apr 25, 2023

Globally, dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face, with nearly 50 million people living with dementia worldwide.

High phenolic olive oils, rich in oleocanthal and oleacein, have been associated with significant improvement in the mental function of people with early Alzheimer's symptoms.

High Phenolic Olive Oil and Cognitive Function

One study has shown that long term intervention with high phenolic, early harvest, extra virgin olive oil in cognitively normal older adults was associated with significant improvement in cognitive function compared to Mediterranean Diet alone, regardless of the presence of the APOEɛ4 genotype that predicts the development of Alzheimer’s.

Another study demonstrated that EVOO therapy may prevent the risk of patients with mild cognitive impairment going on to progress to Alzheimer’s Disease.

In a third study, a long-term intervention with an EVOO-rich Mediterranean Diet resulted in a better cognitive function in comparison with a control diet. Furthermore, participants allocated to a Mediterranean Diet rich in extra virgin olive oil experienced lower instances of mild cognitive impairment compared to the controls.

Most participants showed significant results within three months of consistently taking high phenolic olive oil.
