The famous Russian doctor Alexander Myasnikov often reveals the health benefits of foods that are widely consumed in Russia and other countries of the world, and today reveals the health benefits of herring.
Myasnikov notes on a TV program that herring, a fatty marine fish, is rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
According to him, omega-3 protects against dementia, strengthens muscles, heart and blood vessels, protects against arrhythmias, and reduces the likelihood of blood clots. In addition, herring contains many useful mineral elements. It also improves metabolism, reduces the risk of cancer, improves the functioning of the nervous system, maintains visual acuity, improves skin and hair condition.
However, he adds that those suffering from high blood pressure should refrain from eating herring or eat it with caution, as it contains a high percentage of salts.
“Everyone who suffers from high blood pressure loves to eat herring. Either because they have different sensitivity to salt, or they have different receptors, or because the forbidden is sweeter,” he says.
And he adds that two small pieces of herring can be eaten, no more, although this is harmful to the body, but very useful for the soul.
