Japanese & Chinese Superfoods - Coming Soon...

-Umboshi plums*
-Bok choy

*Quick fact: Umeboshi plums are a Japanese pickled plum. In Japan, eating umeboshi a day is the equivalent to the American "an apple a day"- here's why:

-alkalizing to the blood
-help buffer excess acidity from white sugar and alcohol
-aid digestion
-boost immune system
-help cure a hangover/fight the common cold

(For anyone who's never tasted one, expect an almost extreme salty, sour taste. Each plum is only the size of small grape, minus a pit in the center and you get used to the "bite" quickly.)
