Dried Lotus Seed Pot (Lian Fang) grows in many countries worldwide and is native to South China. It is a very adaptable plant and the seeds can remain dormant for a long time. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), these have an array of health benefits.
Interestingly, the seeds and pods of the Dried Lotus Seed Pot are known to contain polyphenols, protein, polysaccharides. These compounds can often be found in other botanicals and leaves.
Benefits may include:
- May assist to reduce bleeding
- Can help diarrhoea
- May aid rashes
- Can assist treating food poisoning
Every part of the Dried Lotus Seed Pot plant is considered edible. Traditionally, these are simply collected, cleaned, and air dried.
Simply boil the Dried Lotus Seed Pot for approximately 40 minutes or so, followed by an overnight soak. Being super lightweight and quite buoyant, this will take some effort. To ensure they become fully saturated, safely hold them down during the boiling process.
This makes the Dried Lotus Seed Pot an effective healthy snack for overall health and wellbeing!
