Scientific studies reveal traditional Mediterranean health and longevity!
For decades scientists worldwide have been studying why Mediterranean people in the past lived more active and healthier lives than we do today and it seems that one of the essential factors was their traditional diet.
The good news is that research shows you don’t need to live in the Mediterranean region to enjoy some of the famous health benefits of the Mediterranean lifestyle.

The traditional Mediterranean diet - crucial to Mediterranean wellness
Whilst it’s fine to think that we can follow the same diet and lifestyle as Mediterranean people of the past, the reality is that most of us just don’t have the time to prepare meals of freshly grown, home cooked, ingredients from the Mediterranean region every day!
Reknowned phyto-scientist Professor Masquelier found that specific ‘small flavanols’ present in red wine are crucial ingredients to Mediterranean wellness.
The active compounds in red wine (OPCs), together with those in olive oil (Hydroxytyrosol) and fish (omega 3’s), form three of the most researched compounds associated with the benefits of the traditional Mediterranean diet.
These 3 essential ingredients of the traditional Mediterranean diet have been combined in MASQUELIER’s® Mediterranean Essentials – an easy to take capsule – allowing all of us to enjoy some of the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet every day. So even when we are in a hurry we get the benefits of antioxidants of olives, Omega-3 fatty acids of fish and specific oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) found in good red wine to help support eye, heart and vascular health.
