L'huile d'Olive : Un Élixir pour Prévenir la Démence ?

Olive Oil: An Elixir to Prevent Dementia?

Recently, a fascinating study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA Network Open) , revealing that regular consumption of olive oil could reduce the risk of dying with a diagnosis of dementia. This study, led by Quebecer Anne-Julie Tessier at Harvard University, followed more than 92,000 health care workers for nearly 30 years. The results are impressive: those who consume more than half a tablespoon of olive oil per day are 28% less likely to die with a dementia diagnosis, compared to those who consume almost none .

Unique Protection for the Brain

Researchers were able to determine that olive oil provides unique protection for the brain, independent of other lifestyle habits or health factors. In fact, every additional 5 grams of olive oil reduces the risk of dementia by 9%. Compounds found in olive oil, such as fatty acids, vitamins and polyphenols, are known for their anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects.

Benefits for All

The benefits of olive oil are even more pronounced in women, reducing their risk of dementia-related death by 33%, while in men this risk decreases by 25%. Even those with a genetic predisposition to dementia benefit from high olive oil consumption.

Of course, at Olives et Gourmandises , we firmly believe in the health benefits of olive oil. Our olive oils are high quality, all EVOO certified (extra virgin olive oil) and therefore from a first cold extraction. To find the most possible benefits, we suggest ROBUSTE extra virgin olive oil , which is richest in polyphenols and other beneficial compounds.

Incorporate Olive Oil into Your Diet

To maximize your health benefits, try incorporating more olive oil into your daily diet. Whether for cooking vegetables, marinating your meat, finishing on pasta or for a vinaigrette for your salads, our flavored olive oils can not only improve the taste of your dishes, but also contribute to better brain health .


The findings of this study are great news for those looking to improve their cognitive health through diet. At Olives et Gourmandises , we are delighted to offer a range of olive oils that can help you integrate these benefits more easily into your daily life.
