A STICKY SLIMY WAY TO TURN BACK THE CLOCK ON THE AGING PROCESS:
NAMEKO BOLSTERS IMMUNITY AND PROTECTS THE BODY FROM CANCER (Part 5)
As we grow older, and our legs and lower body become weaker, we lose some of our virility and sex drive. This is only natural. If the problem is psychological, rest and rejuvenation of energy should bring the sex drive back.
Are you one of those who have been turned off by the suggestion of eating such dishes as motsunabe (chitlins stew) or liver and chives stir fry to restore your sexual energy? The problem with these dishes is that they are such heavy foods to eat when you lack energy.
At times like these, slimy foods are the answer. Nameko, a slimy Japanese mushroom, is never served as a main dish, but like natto and yamaimo, contain ribonucleic acid, which forms the main component of semen. Ribonucleic acid is also found in unagi, dojo (lochs) and ikura (salmon roe), all of which are known for their nourishing and virility–restoring qualities.
Nameko fiber also protects the body from many ailments brought about by the westernization of the Ja-panese diet such as cancer of the large intestine. Fiber helps prevent cancer by promoting a healthy metabolism through the elimination of waste products from the body. Also interferon inducers in mushrooms are effective against hepatitis.
