Today we will learn a special seed in Chinese medicine family. It is a magic medicine for me. I usually boil it and add some sugar to create a healthy beverage several times per week.
What I am going to introduce is the seed kernel of Coix lacryma-jobi of the family Poaceae, we called it Coix seed, in some countries, they called it Job’s tears or Job’s-tears, also known as adlay or adlay millet. It is cool in nature, sweet and light in taste. It enters the spleen, lungs and kidney meridians, has the functions of replenishing water and invigorating the spleen, clearing away heat and removing pus, removing (TCM) rheumatic disorder and anti-cancer.
The scope of application of coix seed is very wide. It can be used to treat Difficulty in urination, edema, athlete’s foot, spleen deficiency’s diarrhea, and can also be used for the treatment of Pulmonary Abscess and intestinal carbuncle.
Coix seeds have higher calories than rice and wheat, they are rich in fat, a variety of amino acids, a lot of vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, manganese, copper, zinc, phosphorus, selenium, etc.
As complex carbohydrates, coix seeds are rich in nutrition. Each 100g of coix seeds contains 12.8g of protein, which is more than rice, flour, corn, sorghum, millet and other grains. Every 100g of Coix Seeds also contain 3.3g of fat, 2g of dietary fiber, 69.1g of sugar, and also include niacin and vitamin E.
I always use Coix seeds in a few Asian dishes, such as cook with rice, make porridge, soup, or even use coix seeds with stewed chicken, stewed pork ribs, stewed pig’s trotters, and create sweet dessert, like eight-treasure rice pudding, spleen-invigorating traditional cake etc. Those are very suitable for the elderly, weak and sick people.
Coix seeds also have cosmetic effects. Long-term eating Coix seeds can make your skin moisten and shine. No wonder some people call Coix seeds “the seed of good health and longevity”. Therefore, the local folk tune said: Coix seed is better than Ganoderma lucidum (Mean Coix seeds are better than expensive herb). Because it has high medicinal nutritional value, regular consumption can prolong life and make you become young again.
