The World's Most Popular Diet Is Now Available in Pill Form

Kaitlyn McLintock


Of the world's vast laundry list of eating plans—vegan, paleo, gluten-free, you name it—(very) few have earned the mass adulation of the Mediterranean diet. Even if you haven't tried this gloriously low-key approach to healthy eating (wine is allowed!), chances are you've read about it a number of times. Inspired by the fresh, whole foods consumed by those who live along the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, this diet includes key staples like olive oil, fish, whole grains, and fresh produce.

So for starters, it's delicious, but the health benefits abound: Research shows that the Mediterranean diet protects against cardiovascular dysfunction, diabetes, memory loss, and even certain cancers. It's been shown to boost mood, effectively cutting the risk of depression. Did I mention that it positively affects your skin too? Because the food is so rich in antioxidants, it prevents early ageing and cell damage. Basically, it's the coconut oil of diets: There's nothing it can't do.

And though one of the best parts about the Mediterranean diet is its user-friendliness, maybe it was only a matter of time before someone thought to simplify it even further. Lazy girls, rejoice: It turns out you can get many of the benefits of the Mediterranean diet with just one simple supplement.
