Cardiologist at JSC “Medicina” (clinic of Academician Roitberg), Ph.D. Denis Sokolov said that instant cereals harm the heart.
“Crushed grains are digested faster and carry only light carbohydrates, which quickly leads to feelings of hunger and the acquisition of extra calories. Fiber in such mixtures is the minimum amount, which adversely affects the digestion process. With regular use of instant cereals, metabolic disorders may occur, ”the doctor said in a conversation with “Gazeta.Ru”.
Sokolov emphasized that only whole grain products are useful for the cardiovascular system – they remove cholesterol from the body and protect the heart.
