Small in size but abundant in benefits, longan is said to block carcinogenic substances and support white blood cell health. It is high in Vitamin C and B12 making it a #BeautySuperFood as well as great support for the blood, nerves, eyes and heart.
In Chinese medicine books you can find recipes using longan and ginseng to help an elder who is struggling with forgetfulness!
Most interesting to me is that supposedly the ash of burnt longan seeds can be rubbed on scars to speed up healing and soothe itches - I’ll be testing this when I’m back in the states!
