American nutritionists have discovered an unexpected property of prunes. In the study, they stated that it reduces cravings for sweets.

According to experts, people who ate prunes in the study felt less hungry and consumed fewer calories. Experts called this product one of the best for a snack. For example, nutritionist Lauren Manaker noted that prunes can replace unhealthy desserts for those with a sweet tooth. She added that this dried fruit is full of natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and fiber. Each contains about 3.5 grams of natural sugars and 0.5 grams of fiber.

By the way, earlier American doctors and nutritionists named the favorable effects of eating fish twice a week. According to a nutritionist and author of books on healthy eating Jackson Bletner, this group of foods is rich in omega-3 acids, which are extremely beneficial for the brain: they help its cells fight age-related changes, air pollution, and other adverse factors.
