Tofu Dessert - Traditional Chinese Medicine
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, all the organs are closely linked and inter-related to each other. Especially for skin, the lungs are key in providing nutrition and supports the skin functions. To achieve healthy skin, we must first nourish the lungs. When lung 'qi' is weak, it results in dry skin and dull complexion. 中医认为“肺主皮毛”，一旦肺气不足，就会导致皮肤干燥、面容憔悴等问题, 所以保养皮肤要先从补肺做起.
Chuan Bei and Bitter and Sweet Almonds are great for nourishing the lungs and the stomach. Tofu is nutritious and in TCM, it has a cooling character and works on the stomach, spleen and large intestines. It helps to clear heat and toxins from the body, balances the digestive system,smooths body joints and moistens the skin. Tofu is rich in minerals and has extremely low cholesterol and fat content. It not only strengthens bones and boosts immunity, the proteins present in tofu help improve the elasticity of skin, tones facial muscles and combats signs of aging.
