Four ingredients to improve sleep quality
Chinese medicine studies believe summer is the time to nourish the heart, because this particular season belongs to the fire element, and the fiery qi passes through the heart. Moreover, the hot weather increases perspiration, as the Chinese saying goes, “sweat is the fluid of the heart”, excessive sweating can easily damage the qi of the heart, causing people to feel frustrated and disturbed, which subsequently affects our sleep quality.
As another Chinese saying goes, “red enters the heart”, which means foods that are red in color can replenish the qi and blood and improve blood circulation. For instance, wolfberries, red beans and red dates. Appropriate use of naturally red foods can nourish the blood, and is especially beneficial for individuals with qi and blood deficiency, as they can give us a radiant facial complexion, nourish the heart and mind, and help us sleep better.
Wolfberry – mild in nature; nourishes the kidney and liver; can replenish the qi, strengthen the joints and bones, and brighten the vision. Since wolfberry also nourishes the blood of the liver, it is suitable for people whose liver and kidney suffer from Yin deficiency. Consuming it can also alleviate soreness of the waist and knees, dizziness and improve blurred vision, as well as the dry eye syndrome. Individuals with loose stools and issues with spleen deficiency, and those with diarrhea problem should not consume it excessively.
Red bean – mild in nature; can replenish the blood and stomach, improve concentration, and strengthen the qi and blood. It is suitable for everyone to consume, but anyone who still experiences coughing should eat with caution.
Chinese date – warm in nature; can replenish the qi and blood, and nourish the spleen. It is suitable for individuals with qi and blood deficiency, and cold body conditions. Those with exuberant qi and blood, hot body conditions, and people who easily develop acne and with constipation issues are not encouraged to consume excessively.
Lotus seed – mild in nature; can calm the heart and mind, strengthen the spleen and relieve diarrhea, and replenish the kidney. It will also improve the qi and blood, reduce anxiety, alleviate insomnia and excessive dreaming, women’s excessive virginal discharge and men’s nocturnal emission (wet dream). Individuals prone to constipation and stomach bloating should limit its intake.
✔ Recommendation: Red Bean Rice Water
Effects: Achieves rosy complexion, calms the mind and improve sleep, replenishes blood and nourish the stomach
