Non-Sulfur Treated Herbs
Long Yan Rou, is the fruit from the beautiful longan tree, a native tree of Southeast Asia and China, which can grow up to 40-50 feet high. The longan tree is a close relative of the lychee tree. It bears fruit that is similar in appearance to a lychee nut, except that they are smaller, smoother, and darker in color. Although longan fruit are eaten fresh off the tree, they are mostly canned in syrup or dried.
Longan contains several vitamins and minerals, including iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium, and large amounts of vitamins A and C. It is almost easy to forget that Long Yan Rou is a medicinal herb because of its pleasant taste. However, Long Yan Rou has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for its healing abilities. In TCM, longan is considered to have a sweet taste and warm energy, and is associated with the Heart and Spleen meridians. It is used to relieve rapid heartbeat, insomnia, forgetfulness and anxiety associated with blood and qi deficiency.
Dried longan, called guìyuán (桂圆) in Chinese, are often used in Chinese cuisine and Chinese sweet dessert soups. The average dose of longan is 9-15 grams, served as a decoction by means of simmering several longan fruits in boiling water. Longan may also be eaten raw or in slices, and the pulp of the fruit can be mashed or added to other beverages.
