Ants make you stronger

China’s local foods were actually a big part of why Taobao caught on a few years ago. People needed an easy way to buy the local foods that they missed from back home. One such superfood: black ants.

Northern flavor

Seems like the best ants come from the Changbai mountains up in the north. I think they go in soup or are crushed up and eaten as pills. Loads of nutrition in these ones. 

What are ants good for?

What aren’t ants good for?  This Taobao listing says that eating ants can help you with: “renal dysfunction, impotence, premature ejaculation, hair, hair loss, hepatitis B, chronic hepatitis and diabetes.”  But that’s not all, ants also have “anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-rheumatism, detoxification, sedation, anti-asthma, and other pharmacological effects.” 

Still not impressed at all the things ants can do!?

Well here is the knockout punch. Ants can help you with both yin deficiency AND yang deficiency. I don’t know how that is possible.I was under the sad misconception that stuff was either yin or yang. But ants are the killer crossover, the ambidextrous hermaphrodite of yin/yang remedies.
