Sea Cucumber


Sea Cucumber, also known as Beche de Mer or Haishen, is a marine animal found on ocean floors throughout the world. Most are less than a foot long and resemble cucumbers in shape. Sea Cucumbers are relatives of starfish and sea urchins. They feed on algae that they sift from sand on the seabed. Sea Cucumber is considered a delicacy in Chinese cooking and is often served at New Year’s feasts, usually in soups. The Chinese call Sea Cucumber ‘Hai shen’, which means ‘sea ginseng’, a reference to its healing properties. In Chinese medicine, Sea Cucumber is believed to be warming in nature, and a source of nourishment for the yin and the blood, and a tonic for the kidneys. It is used to treat impotence, constipation, frequent urination, and weakness. Its use in treating arthritis pain, tendonitis, and chronic joint pain, has received much support from clinical trials conducted in China. It has been found that Sea Cucumber is a natural source of chondroitin, which is believed to be effective in rebuilding worn cartilage. Several over the counter arthritis treatments using Sea Cucumber have appeared on store shelves in recent years. Sea Cucumber has also been found to contain saponin glycosides, which are similar to compounds found in Panax Ginseng. Sea Cucumber has also been investigated for its possible anti-cancer properties. Nutritionally, Sea Cucumber is among the best sources of protein in the world, containing more than 20 different proteins, while being extremely low in fat content.
