Excellent Plum Concentrate improving my brain functions.I consume this for the last one year on a daily base in my breakfast tea. I always loved the Plum taste. I am 73 years old and experience some degree of dementia. However now after one-year daily consumption I notice that my dementia almost disappeared. I am very glad about this improvement. Beside that I always feel healthy and continue to enjoy my breakfast green tea with the spoon of the Ume Plum Concentrate and a tea spoon of raw honey into this morning tea.
It was known for long time is some kind of traditional medicine but after researches scientists knew its alkaline effect on the whole body .. It is recommended on salad as its sour taste goes along with dressing composition ..It might be small package but it lasts for long time for many uses .
Eden Foods Ume Plum Concentrate has truly been a lifesaver for me. I invented a potion of ume plum and turmeric that has done wonders for my gall bladder and pancreas. The ume plum concentrate comes with a plastic spoon that measures 1 gram. I use a coffee mug full of simmering water and add one rounded spoon of ume plum, then 1 heaping teaspoon of either fresh or dry ground turmeric. You'll need to really wiggle the tiny spoon of ume plum in the mug of hot water to dissolve off the spoon. Stir well, and let cool just till cool enough to drink. The turmeric tends to settle at the bottom, so keep it stirred up until you've finished drinking. Take this daily. It's also great to help prevent colds the flu, and as a general alkalinize and anti-oxidant.
I didn't know about the health benefits when I bought this, I was just trying to duplicate a cold beverage made with pickled plums which I'd enjoyed at a Vietnamese restaurant. This is definitely the taste I was looking for, and I trust Eden quality. It's a little fiddly getting this thick concentrate out of the tiny jar and into a glass, but it's easier to keep this on my shelf than trying to find the plums. Now that Winter is coming, I'll try using it in hot tea instead of an iced beverage.
