Legumes are the best food for human health. This opinion was expressed by the doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov, noting that he did not see any shortcomings in such food.
The doctor explained that legumes are rich in fiber, which is essential for the body and helps to reduce the risk of developing cancer and problems with the cardiovascular system. Legumes also contain a lot of plant protein, which is useful for people with hypertension.
This product, ideal for the diet, is able to provide a person with B vitamins and trace elements such as potassium and selenium. In addition, it is low in calories.
“I’m even trying to find some kind of harm from legumes. Nothing, except for flatulence, "- said the doctor on the air of the channel" Russia 1 ".
Dr. Myasnikov added that even the only minor disadvantage of legumes is not so difficult to get rid of. To do this, you just need to soak them in the evening and cook without salt.
Earlier, Canadian physicians found that eating different types of legumes helped lower blood sugar levels. In addition, foods such as chickpeas, lentils, and peas can lower cholesterol levels.
