Doctor Myasnikov advised eating nuts daily to maintain brain health

Doctor Alexander Myasnikov: a small handful of nuts every day is useful for preventing age-related deterioration in brain health and dementia.

Doctor Myasnikov advised Russians to eat nuts every day – strictly in moderation, not exceeding 50 grams. Nuts should not be salted or fried; they can even be eaten crushed, as an addition to soups or main courses.

Alexander Myasnikov stated that no other product provides the human body with biologically active nutrients immediately in such quantities as nuts provide them. They are saturated with proteins, unsaturated fats, fiber, vitamins, and microelements. Thanks to such a rich composition, this product has a positive effect on the functioning of important systems of the body – in particular, on the functioning and condition of the vascular system. Regular consumption of nuts reduces cholesterol levels in the blood vessels, and their effect is comparable to the effect of drugs.

“Healthy vegetable fats contained in any type of nuts reduce cholesterol levels in the same way as atorvastatin,” noted Dr. Myasnikov .
The doctor advised eating nuts daily to maintain the health of blood vessels and the brain (the condition of the brain is inextricably linked with the condition of the vascular system). The habit of consuming them improves a person’s protection from developing dementia, Myasnikov said. Walnuts are especially good for improving brain function, and almonds are especially good for preventing heart disease, he specified.
