Eel that is good for preventing adult diseases and rejuvenating.

Eel dishes are as popular as samgyetang or bosintang. Not only in Korea, but also in Japan, China, and Europe, I have enjoyed it as a food that helps my body since ancient times. It is well known that Japanese people like unagi (eel. On the Doe Day, which corresponds to our Dog Days, the custom of eating Unagi is passed on.

China's "Revelation Book" tells the story that a dying person ate eel and came back to life. Once upon a time, infectious diseases began to spread in the village of Guachon, and many people lost their lives. As a way to prevent further infectious diseases, the village decided to put them in a coffin before they died and send them to the river. In other words, fishermen who were fishing down the river found the sick by chance and fed eel meat to patients who were still alive.


The effectiveness of eel is also recorded in Jeong Yak-jeon's "Jaetaburbo." "The taste is sweet and beneficial to people. If you have diarrhea for a long time, you'll get better soon if you eat porridge with this meat." This medicinal effect can be fully explained by the nutritional content contained in eel.


Eel is rich in protein and fat as well as vitamin A, iron, and phosphorus. Especially essential for growth development and reproductive function, human immunity, vision and skin


Vitamin A, an enemy nutrient, is not comparable to other foods. Vitamin A in 100 grams of eel is equivalent to 10 eggs and 5 liters of milk. In addition, it is high in calories and contains a lot of unsaturated fatty acids and proteins, which have excellent effects in preventing adult diseases and restoring weak constitution.


These days, it's the best time to enjoy the most delicious and nutritious eel. This is because weight is rising from summer to early fall before the spawning season. However, if you eat peaches right after you eat eel, you should avoid it because it can cause diarrhea. On the other hand, ginger not only removes the fishy smell but also helps digest and absorb the eel's protein and fat.
