The goal of life longevity for many is to live a long and healthy life with reduced worries of diseases and health ailments. Its also to live a life of improved mental and physical wellness with reduced frailty and keeping the mind sharp. According to researchers, there is a diet that can help with all of these. What is it?

Participants who adhered strictly to the Mediterranean diet experienced the greatest gain in desirable bacteria, while losing the most bad bacteria.

In other words, their microbiome was re-programmed.

The researchers observed an increase in the types of bacteria previously associated with indicators of reduced frailty, such as walking speed and hand grip strength.

A significant positive change was seen in the gut microbiome of those with reduced frailty.

As a result, their condition was slowed, the researchers said.

The researchers said the most striking finding was how strong the link was between an improved gut environment and markers of ageing.


The participants in the study followed either a diet rich in healthy fats, fruit and vegetables whilst the others continued eating their normal diet.

By analysing each participants stools they were able to discover that the Mediterranean diet boosted bacteria in the gut.

Trillions of bacteria live in the digestive tract and play an important role in health.

Of the thousands of species of gut microbes that live in the gut, some are healthy for the body - while others are not.

Following the Mediterranean diet, the health and diversity of the gut microbes improved, preventing and treating conditions like obesity, diabetes, heart disease and inflammation associated with autoimmune diseases.
