Chinese ingredients have some amazing health benefits. In light of this grab the ginger and stock up on sesame seeds to create some delicious and nutritious Chinese dishes of your own.
The team at Royal China Group have revealed five of their favourite ingredients and how they can benefit your health and well-being.
Packed full of vitamins, it may surprise you to know that chillies contain more vitamin C than oranges, which helps to boost the immune system. They are also a superb source of vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium and folic acid.
Great for digestion, ginger can help relieve stomach aches, morning sickness and nausea. It is also a natural preventative measure for heart attacks and strokes as it reduces blood clotting.
A fantastic source of protein, tofu is especially good for vegans as it doesn’t contain any animal products. It is packed full of nutrients, including iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc, making it a great ingredient as part of a balanced diet.
Much like tofu, sesame seeds are an excellent source of high quality protein. They are also proven to balance blood pressure levels and lower cholesterol.
For those suffering from diabetes, green tea can be a fantastic accompaniment to frequent insulin shots to help regulate glucose levels in the blood. Green tea is also beneficial for your skin as its rich in antioxidants, which reduce signs of ageing.
