Mikhail Ginzburg also recommended including champignons in the diet, adding that they contain substances help curb the aging process.

“I recommend eating mushrooms such as champignons and shiitake. Recent studies have shown that they contain glycosides that have anti-inflammatory properties and can inhibit the aging process,” the expert shared with Vechernaya Moskva.
