Olive oil, is considered the pillar of the Mediterranean diet, since it improves the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as the lipoprotein profile, blood pressure, glucose metabolism and antithrombotic profile. Endothelial function, inflammation and oxidative stress are also positively modulated. Some of these effects are attributed beside the monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) to the minor components of virgin olive oil [12]. Hydrocarbons, polyphenols, tocopherols, sterols, triterpenoids and other components, despite their low concentration, non-fatty acid constituents may be of importance because studies comparing monounsaturated dietary oils have reported different effects on cardiovascular disease. Most of these compounds have demonstrated antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and hypolipidemic properties [13]. Moreover, MUFA-rich diet prevents central fat redistribution and the postprandial decrease in peripheral adiponectin gene expression and insulin resistance induced by a carbohydrate-rich diet in insulin-resistant subjects [14].
Makakatulong din ang nutrisyon. Ang hindi kumakain ng mabigat na pagkain bago ang kama ay maaaring isa sa mga pinakamalaking bagay na maaari mong gawin para sa isang matulog na may kalidad na gabi. Ang alkohol, bagaman maaari mong isipin na nakatutulong ka na makatulog, ay talagang isang pagtulog sa pagtulog, kaya limitahan ang iyong paggamit. Dapat ding iwasan ng kapeina ang hindi bababa sa 4 oras bago ang oras ng pagtulog.
