牛蒡的功效 Burdock roots a natural remedy

牛蒡 Burdock   昨天有聽眾問我牛蒡是否需要先去皮才烹調?查遍資料才知道它是一種神奇的植物。 到底牛蒡是什麼東西?請你細心閱讀。如你從來沒有食過,唔……..走寶了! 牛蒡,中醫稱大力子,別名東洋蘿蔔,東洋人參。國內以前多為藥用,而在日本,則是千家萬戶的日常蔬菜之一。 牛蒡長的挺特殊,呈細長圓狀,土黃色,擺在菜攤上不怎麼起眼,沒想到卻是營養價值極高的保健型蔬菜。 牛蒡早在李時珍的“本草綱目”中就詳細記載其能“通十二經脈,除五臟惡氣”,“久服輕身耐老”,也就是說,經常食用牛蒡可以減肥,抗衰老。牛蒡屬菊科類,兩年生草本植物,其根深葉茂,福含人體所需的多種維生素及礦物質,其胡蘿蔔素含量在蔬菜中居第二位,比胡蘿蔔高150倍,蛋白質和鈣的含量為根莖類之首。 Read More »
