Accordingly to what I read, it has cooling benefit and I was told it was good for diabetic as well.
It is also used to treat flatulence, nausea, vomiting, headaches, bronchitis, asthma and vertigo.
This time round, I added raw sugar and surprisingly the taste comes out very much ribena like (as my kids commented).
Have a good weekend.
What you need:
A bundle of Alternanthera sessilis red (红田乌)
rock sugar to taste
Wash Alternanthera sessilis red (红田乌) and boil with water. Bring to a brisk boil and lower flame and simmer for half hour.
Add in rock sugar and continue for another 10 mins.
