According to A. Unnuskuskas, legumes should complement each diet – they contain a variety of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants.
"Leguminous vegetables become a very important part of the diet at a young age, when doctors recommend that meat consumption be reduced," he says.
The doctor confirms that different beans and peas can also replace meat: "Everyone knows that we get protein from meat and fish, these are animal proteins. Leguminous vegetables are the main source of vegetable proteins. By the way, humanity has the largest part of protein that originates from soy. "
Among other things, peanut vegetables have very healthy fats, which reduces the amount of bad cholesterol and increases the quality.
"Delicious bits are estimated globally because they are a major source of fiber. The more I am convinced that the essential reason for good health is a sufficient amount of fiber in the diet. We have two recorders – broccoli and green beans according to the total amount of fat, proteins , trace elements, flavonoids and antioxidants, "says A.Unikauskas.
It is true that, according to the professor, a large number of people incorporate legumes in their diet because of unpleasant emotions like bloating. But proper clothing and bites help prevent it – peanuts are important to chew well.
In addition, A.Unikauskas emphasizes the importance of women's growth plants: "They are especially needed during menopause when the amount of estrogen in a woman's body decreases. Eating more beans, lentils and other legumes, restores women's natural hormone balance and prevents most negative symptoms of menopause."
Legumes are also needed in younger women who have hormonal imbalance after birth, suffer from postnatal depression and start to scratch their hair, add the doctor.
