Abstract

Recent meta-analysis shows that adherence to a Mediterranean diet (MD) can significantly decrease the risk of overall mortality, mortality from cardiovascular diseases, as well as incidence of mortality from cancer, and incidence of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. All of these diseases could be linked to oxidative stress (OS) as antioxidative effect of MD is getting more attention nowadays. Although a lot of research has been done in this area and it suggests antioxidative protective role of MD, the presented evidence is still inconclusive. The aim of this paper is to review studies investigating the effect of MD on OS, as well as to identify the areas for further research.

Abstract in Croatian

ANTIOKSIDATIVNO PROTEKTIVNO DJELOVANJE MEDITERANSKE DIJETE ----- Nedavna meta analiza je pokazala da pridržavanje mediteranskoj dijeti značajno smanjuje rizik od ukupne smrtnosti, smrtnosti od kardiovaskularnih bolesti i karcinoma, te pojavnost Parkinsonove i Alzheimerove bolesti. Kako se sve spomenute bolesti dovode u vezu sa oksidacijskim stresom, mediteranska prehrana sa svojim antioksidativnim učinkom, danas dobiva sve veću pozornost. Danas postoji mnogo istraživanja u tom području, koja većinom upućuju na antioksidativno, protektivno djelovanje mediteranske preherane. Usprkos tome, među postojećim dokazima postoji dosta proturiječnosti. Cilj ovog rada bio je proučiti studije koje su se bavile utjecajem mediteranske prehrane na oksidacijski stress, te ustanoviti područje od značaja za dalja istraživanja.
