Weight Loss Tips

  • Pork is traditionally used for shpundra, but you can experiment by taking veal, chicken or lamb. You can also use a meat mix.

  • In terms of iron content, beets are second only to garlic. These trace elements activate the work of hematopoiesis and regulate metabolism. Beets are extremely useful for constipation and problems with the intestinal flora.
