The Mediterranean diet: a key role in cancer prevention

United States, 20th Jan 2023 – The Mediterranean diet—characterized by a high intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats, such as olive oil—has been associated with a lower risk of various chronic diseases, including cancer. 

The molecular mechanisms underlying the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet are not fully known yet, but research suggests that polyphenols found in olive oil may play a key role in cancer prevention.

Over the years, several analyses have found that a high intake of olive oil—a staple of the Mediterranean diet—is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer. 

Specifically, these studies have identified that olive oil polyphenols, such as hydroxytyrosol and oleocanthal, have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which may protect against cancer development.

Moreover, other studies have found that a Mediterranean diet, rich in olive oil, is also associated with a lower risk of colon cancer. In fact, these researches suggest that polyphenols, which are also found in olive oil, may inhibit cancer cell growth and promote apoptosis (a process of programmed cell death).

To conclude, as pointed out above, the Mediterranean diet can positively affect the well-being of the body, significantly reducing the likelihood of contracting diseases such as breast, colon, and prostate cancer thanks to the numerous beneficial vitamins and nutrients it contains.

This is also possible due to the presence of olive oil polyphenols, such as hydroxytyrosol and oleocanthal, which play a key role in cancer prevention by inhibiting cancer cell growth and promoting apoptosis. 

For those who cannot follow a Mediterranean diet, taking dietary supplements containing olive polyphenols may be an alternative way to help prevent cancer.

This is why MAGISNAT (, an innovative Italian-American spin-off based at Atlanta Tech Park (Georgia, USA), is investing all its energy and resources in promoting its line of dietary supplements, by the name of GARLIVE, which is available on Amazon (

Currently, the line consists of two dietary supplements, GARLIVE Recovery ( and GARLIVE Oral Spray (, with a very concentrated formula.

In particular, they contain more polyphenols than two cups of extra virgin olive oil. In addition, GARLIVE Recovery also contains high dosages of vitamins: among them, for example, B, C, D vitamins (one tablet contains more vitamins than 14 ounces of fruit).  

A solution, that of dietary supplements, which is both practical and effective.
