Not only is mochi believed to increase physical strength, but the well-loved Japanese dish is also easy to digest, making it a favorite for people who don’t have the strength to chew on traditional meals. Mochi is also recommended for those who are sick and weak, but those who favor mochi the most are actually Japanese farmers, who eat mochi during the colder months because of its ability to provide extra strength and stamina. Pregnant mothers are also known to eat mochi, again because of its ability to give strength for both mother and baby. When combined with the herb mugwort, which is readily available in Japan, mochi has added health benefits, producing high calcium and iron content, which new moms are supposed to have. For people who want to gain weight, mochi can be taken in conjunction with mugwort.
