Benefits from yakuzen

*The list is a brief summary of each ingredient's benefits/efficacy as a yakuzen/medicinal food/medicinal dish that are mentioned in my website. The official yakuzen theory explains in a rather complicated and strict way if you compare to my list below. Not to mention, there are actually hundreds of more benefits/efficacy not listed here. I just pick up the most useful and common ones here to list for you.

*I list these benefits by rephrasing in a moderate way in order to make it easier for the people who have never encountered yakuzen theory before can enjoy its concept and can take a look at this list to see if they want to experience a particular benefit.
