Meat belongs to animal food, which is rich in high quality protein and plays an important role in nourishing and strengthening the body. But the content of fat and cholesterol is high, and it belongs to acid food in physiology. Therefore, eating more meat will not only produce more metabolic poisons, but also lead to physiological acid-base imbalance. Teenagers may show fatigue, excessive stomach acid, neurasthenia, etc.; middle-aged and old people may show hypertension, arteriosclerosis, stroke, etc. Kelp is rich in alkaline elements, which belongs to alkaline food in physiology. It can maintain acid-base balance in vivo when eaten with meat. Therefore, kelp stew is a good food with complementary nutrition.
