Purple or dark fruits and vegetables are great for nourishing the body fluids that moisten dryness. Eggplant is no exception with its traditional uses in TCM for moistening the lungs and large intestine to relieve constipation. It has the ability to clear away excess heat, and food stagnation in people with undigested food that remains in the digestive system, creating foul odour, constipation, haemorrhoids and lower abdominal pain. Eggplant's cooling nature can be balanced by adding garlic or onions to your dish.
