Lotus roots have numerous benefits to health. Lotus roots are reported to be rich in dietary fiber and vitamin C, while very low in saturated fat. The presence of large amounts of vitamin C in lotus root can stimulate lung function. Besides, lotus root juice is considered good for treating lung-related disorders such as tuberculosis, asthma, cough and cold. Guangdong people usually stew lotus roots with pork ribs. This soup is suitable for people with poor digestive function because of its rich nutrition.
