Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, high in iron, calcium, and carotene (10x more than that of pumpkin). Japanese Shiso is good for the respiratory tract and those with asthma to improve immune function, excellent for stomach aches and digestive upset. Red Shiso is used in traditional medicine as well, believed to help prevent anemia and contain cancer-fighting properties. Some Japanese use it alongside ginger, rice vinegar, or umeboshi to help blood circulation.
