Brain oxidative processes play a major role in age-related cognitive decline, thus consumption of antioxidant-rich
foods might help preserve cognition. Our aim was to assess whether consumption of antioxidant-rich foods in the Mediterranean diet relates to cognitive function in the elderly. In asymptomatic subjects at high cardiovascular risk (n = 447; 52% women; age 55–80 y) enrolled in the PREDIMED study, a primary prevention dietary-intervention trial, we assessed food intake and cardiovascular risk profile, determined apolipoprotein E genotype, and used neuropsychological tests to evaluate cognitive function. We also measured urinary polyphenols as an objective biomarker of intake. Associations between energy-adjusted food and cognitive scores were assessed by multiple linear regression models adjusted for potential confounders. Consumption of some foods was independently related to better cognitive function. The specific associations[regression coefficients (95% confidence intervals)] were: total olive oil with immediate verbal memory [0.755 (0.151–1.358)];virgin olive oil and coffee with delayed verbal memory [0.163 (0.010–0.316) and 0.294 (0.055–0.534), respectively]; walnuts with working memory [1.191 (0.061–2.322)]; and wine with Mini-Mental State Examination scores [0.252 (0.006–0.496)].

proportions of bioactive micronutrients, such as phy- tosterols, vitamin E, and phenolic compounds [40].
Because of a lower cost, common olive oil (a mix- ture of refined oil with a small proportion of VOO) is widely used in Spain in the kitchen and at the table, while VOO, which is obtained by cold pressing of the ripe fruit and is much richer in minor but bioactive com- ponents, has a more restricted consumption, as shown in our study group (Table 2). Greater consumption of VOO in the Mediterranean diet has been associated with various health benefits [40]. Few epidemiologi- cal studies have related consumption of MUFA with cognitive function. MUFA is contained in other foods, for example beef, besides olive oil. This heterogene- ity in the dietary sources of MUFA might explain why some results are inconsistent [42–46]. Recently, in line with our results, a weak association of total olive oil intake with a reduced risk of cognitive impairment was reported in a large French cohort [47].
We found that increasing consumption of walnuts, but not of other nuts, was associated with better work- ing memory scores. Interestingly, walnuts are among the foods with highest antioxidant capacity, by far surpassing other nuts [48]. They are also the whole food richest in ␣-linolenic acid, the vegetable n-3 fatty acid [41]. Consistent evidence from prospective studies suggests that frequent nut intake relates to lower CHD rates [49]. This may be due in part to the beneficial effects of nuts on blood lipids [50] and other dis- Fig. 2.
