It can not only benefit Qi and body fluid, but also clear away heat and relieve summer heat. The elderly, children and people with weak spleen and stomach function can also put some Huai yam and poria cocos when cooking porridge. The effect of strengthening spleen and stomach will be better.

They can not only wake up and remove annoyance, but also dispel dampness and relieve your skin. However, people with allergic constitution should use them with caution.
