They look like your garden cucumber, our very own pipino. They’re soft and tender, these marine invertebrate related to sea urchins and star fish.

They’re also nutritious and beneficial to one’s health.

We’re talking about sea cucum­bers, known as pipino ng dagat.

A recent story on Yahoo News said sea cucumbers might not look it, but they are very valuable creatures.

There are 1,250 different species of sea cucumber in the world.

They are preferred by healthy eaters as they are very low in calo­ries and fat and high in protein.

Thus, they make for a weight-loss-friendly food.

They also contain many pow­erful substances, including anti­oxidants.

In many Asian countries, sea cucumber is dried and used in soups and other dishes.

It is also used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat fatigue, impotence, constipation, frequent urination, and joint pain.

TRIVIA PA MORE (Various Sources): Ever wondered why cats meow?

According to animal behavior­ists, cats do that not to commu­nicate with other cats. It’s their way of getting attention from humans.

Cats are naturally malambing. In my neighborhood, cats meow a lot when they want to mate.
