CHINESE RED DATES HEALTH BENEFITS OF DAILY USE
(Free recipe card with purchase)
Red dates are naturally sweet(this date is much less sweet than American dates, no added sugar) and flavorful(100% natural), low in fat and high in vitamins and potassium for a healthy way to satisfy a sweet tooth. These dates are huge and ideal for making tea or soup. "However, it is important to know that Chinese people treat dates not only as a food but also as a health tonic and a traditional herb. Many traditional herbal formulas include dates as they are used for balancing the formula, Qi and blood for the body. " says Dr. Ping Wang, a well-known Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Clinical Director of Ping Ming Health in Western Australia. Likewise they are also used in dishes to balance the food. On special occasions many people buy quality dates and give these as gifts to their friends and relatives.
(Dr. Ping Wang, is the founder of Ping Ming Health with over 30 years of clinical and teaching experience. She studied and lectured at the Capital Medical University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing, and practiced at the Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is an external supervisor of Chinese medicine students from RMIT University.)
Below are some excerpts that Dr. Ping Wang wrote about in an article, published in Ping Ming Health Newsletter. The ancient Chinese medicine textbook, she mentioned, is written by Shen Nong, the Father of Traditional Chinese Medicine 5000 years ago. This book has since been called "Old Testament of Natural Health."
It is unfortunate that even today they are not very popular in Western food and diet therapy culture. Many people do not know that chinese dates have such beneficial effects for human health. In this article I would like the share the benefits of Chinese red dates.
The effects of Chinese red dates.
1) Tonifying Blood
An ancient traditional Chinese books called ‘Ben Jin’ and Chinese herbal text books all mention that Chinese dates can strengthen the spleen and stomach Qi (energy) which helps to digest food, tonify blood and tranquilize the mind. Chinese medicine considers that the formation of blood is through good digestion and absorption of food which is mainly helped by the spleen and stomach. If spleen and stomach Qi are weakened it will affect the blood supply and its function, this may lead to blood deficiency (iron deficiency) and may also have the following symptoms, such as; poor appetite, lack of energy, pallor, lack of muscle on the arm and legs, overweight, diarrhea, sluggish bowl movement or bowl movement straight after eating, bloating after eating, stomach craps or diarrhea from eating cold food, or light and shorter menstruation and insomnia. Some people may also suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, under-reactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), miscarriages or infertility.
A few weeks ago, I helped a lady fall pregnant. This lady suffered from Qi and blood deficiency. She had pallor, lethargy, with light and short periods. I treated her, using acupuncture to balance internal Qi and blood as well as teaching her beef bone soup with red dates to drink. After a couple of months she had increased energy, with a pink health colour in her face with regular periods. She also fell pregnant, I am very happy for her.
Usually when I treat this type of case, I balance the spleen and stomach Qi function to increase the blood. This will help to increase the blood but also cause all symptoms to subside. I suggest that those who are undergoing treatment or want to prevent this problem to eat certain foods such as Chinese Red Dates. (Please check the recipe below)
2) Improving insomnia
Chinese dates are suitable for people who have insomnia from lack of Qi and blood. Chinese medicine considers one of the major causes of insomnia is due to Qi and blood deficiency such as the blood being unable to moisturize the liver and heart causing a ying and yang disorder. This will cause problems with sleeping. Usually this can cause the following symptoms; light sleep (easy to be woken), lots of vivid dreams, lack of energy from the beginning of the day. These people may also experience dizziness, lower blood pressure, palpitations, pale skin, and shortness of breath especially during activities or tremorring hands when tired. For these people it is suitable to eat Chinese dates whilst undergoing treatment. (Please check recipe below)
3) To help protect the liver, reduce cholesterol and prevent cancer
I will share some information from modern science research which is noted in Traditional Chinese Text Book mentions Chinese dates contain high levels of Vitamin C, also having the function of protecting the liver, help reduce cholesterol and increase the bodies immune system and may help reduce the risk of cancer.
In summary, Chinese red dates are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals such as calcium,magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and iron, and dietary fibers. They boost body's energy metabolism and protect liver, nourish the blood, enhance muscle strength, eliminate fatigue, improve insomnia, prevent cardiovascular diseases.
