Elia Mediterranean Restaurant
The Mediterranean diet is a modern nutritional recommendation inspired by the traditional dietary patterns of Crete, much of the rest of Greece in the 1960s. On November 17, 2010, UNESCO recognized this diet pattern as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Italy, Greece, Spain and Morocco,thus reinforcing it not only as a fundamental part of their history and background, but also as a great contribution to the world.
Olive oil is particularly characteristic of the Mediterranean diet. It contains a very high level of monounsaturated fats,most notably oleic acid, which epidemiological studies suggest may be linked to a reduction in coronary heart disease risk.
There is also evidence that the antioxidants in olive oil improve cholesterol regulation and LDL cholesterol reduction, and that it has other anti-inflammatory and anti-hypertensive effects.
