Selected Mexico Wild Caught Dried Curved Sea Cucumber - Small (1 lb)

Free Shipping on US Domestic Orders

We manually select the top grade sea cucumber to package. Small Size: About 65 - 80 pieces per pound.

Sea cucumbers are echinoderms from the class Holothuroidea. They are marine animals with a leathery skin and an elongated body containing a single, branched gonad. Sea cucumbers are found on the sea floor worldwide. There are a number of holothurian species and genera, many of which are targeted for human consumption. The harvested product is variously referred to as trepang, bêche-de-mer or balate.

To prepare the sea cucumber after it is collected, the internal organs are removed, and dirt and sand are washed out of the cavity. It is then boiled in salty water and dried in the air to preserve it. When readied for use in making food, the hard, dried sea cucumber is softened. The process is quite lengthy, which is why this food tends to appear at special dinners and banquets more so than in day-to-day cuisine. To soften the dried sea cucumbers, the instructions are: place the sea cucumbers in a pot and add cold water to cover; soak for at least 12 hours; then cook over low heat for 1 to 2 hours; add more water, as necessary, to make sure that the water always covers the cucumbers; remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, then drain.

Yunnan Baiyao miracle supplement

Recently, our sweet 10 1/2 year old Puerto Rican rescue dog, Bella, who appeared to be a part Golden Retriever/Spaniel mix was given 1-2 weeks to live by our vet; sadly, she was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma. We had very little warning of this awful, malignant cancer of the blood vessels. Bella's abdominal ultra-sound showed a small bleeding tumor on her spleen, as well as her liver. Unfortunately, it was too late to attempt a splenectomy. Though our vet was unable to prescribe Yunnan Baiyao, per se (probably because it isn't FDA approved), he mentioned the supplement to us as a last resort in fighting the disease. We had initially purchased the YB at a local, holistic pharmacy, but we were able to order subsequent capsules through New Green. Ordering was quick and efficient, and pricing was reasonable!
For as long as Bella could tolerate eating and being "pilled", we continued to give her the YB, along with Turkey Tail supplements (to help possibly shrink her tumors and lessen inflammation). We resorted to using the red pill about 3-4 times when her bleeding and breathing episodes were the worst. The YB seemed to help he tolerate the disease while making her more comfortable to eat, drink and be her happy self between episodes. Knowing we were going to inevitably lose her, the YB gave our 4 children time to spend with Bella in preparation for our eventual loss. After 7 weeks of fighting the disease, our puppy finally lost her battle to Hemangiosarcoma. Although our family is still grieving and devastated by her passing, Bella's last breath seemed painless and peaceful at the end. She was surrounded by our whole family at home, and we are so grateful for this. We think the Yunnan Baiyao had everything to do with this! Most of all, we were given 5 extra weeks beyond her grim diagnosis to spoil her, love her, laugh with her, and spend time with her. Thank you!
