Final thought… ever wonder why your mouth waters when you picture a juicy steak, or a slice of lemon meringue pie… or better yet… a sweet, salty, sour, dried li hing mui seed?
Turns out, when we smell, see or even visualize, a lemon peel covered with li hing powder, or a firm, salty, crunchy football seed with a hint of licorice, our brain releases neurotransmitters to nerves that control saliva production. That embarrassing drool you wipe away, actually moistens your mouth, protects your teeth from decay and helps digestion.
So pucker up and don’t hesitate to grab that li hing mui gummy bear… because milk isn’t the only thing that does your body good!
Mahalo nui,
