The five-element vegetable broth was popular in Japan over the past ten years, which plays great role of preventing diseases, improving immunity and fighting diseases. It was made of burdock root, white radish, white radish leaves, carrot, and mushrooms at a certain proportion. As the green white radish leaves nourish liver, red carrots nourish heart, white radish nourish lung, black mushrooms nourish kidney and yellow burdock roots nourish spleen, this remedy may “nourish five internal organs, optimize physical health”.
