The dried edible sea cucumbers contain protein, fat, cabohydrate, calcium, phosphorus, iron, sterol, triterpenol, and iodine. They are salty in taste and warm in nature. Sea cucumbers go to Heart and Kidney channels.
Sea cucumbers can tonify the kidney, replenish the vital essence, nourish the blood, and moisten dryness. They are great for people who have blood and essence deficiency, weakness, impotence and seminal emission, frequent urination, constipation due to dryness of the intestinal tract, and debility due to aging.
It is recommended to make sea cucumber into soap or eaten sauteed after soaked.
NOTE: People who have diarrhea due to Spleen Qi deficiency or excessive phlegm should avoid sea cucumbers.
