Dry black fungus soup and health

I read in the health section of a local newspaper about the goodness of dry black fungus. According to the article, drinking black fungus soup daily will reduce our cholesterol level. Besides, it can reduce the occurrence of hardening of the arteries and prevent strokes too.

In terms of nutrition, black fungus contains protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, Vitamin B1 and B2 as well as fibre.

The soup is prepared in a stainless pot or a slow cooker in following manner:
1 Soak 20 g of black fungus overnight.
2 Take out the softened fungus and start cutting it into small strips.
3 Slice 3 to 4 pieces of ginger.
4 Get ready 10 destoned red dates
5 20 qizi (red) seeds are needed too
8 Put all the above ingredients in a pot and add in 2 litres of water.
9 Stew for 8 hours.

You can get 8 bowls of soup from the above preparation.

Drink this soup empty-stomached and take in food two hours later. Do this daily and you can see the reduction in the cholesterol level. Try it for yourself.
