This perk-me-up wonder is not my dose of coffee. I’ve been relying on it since the start of Term 2.
I started first week this term solo parenting because hubby had to attend a conference overseas for four days. That meant that I had to handle the kids, the cooking and the chores on top of work myself. I woke up feeling exhausted every day and while my eyes were still blurry, I cut open one satchet of this chicken essence and heated it up in the microwave for a minute.
The Tian Yuan Xiang Chicken Essence is more than just aromatic chicken essence. Other ingredients which have been added to this packet of goodness are red dates, wolfberries, huang qi 黄芪and black dates. These Chinese herbs are good for strengthening the body, especially when we are fatigued while black dates help with bowel movement as well.
The chickens used to produce the Tian Yuan Xiang double-boiled chicken essence are their own free range chickens where no chemicals or hormones are administered. They also only use 150-day mature chickens to obtain the most nutrition in the chicken essence. Hence the double-boiled chicken essence is rich in high quality protein and essential amino acids. Not a single drop of water is added to the chicken essence, and to make things even better for consumers, the oil is filtered off to reduce the calories! For Muslim friends, you will be glad to know that Tian Yuan Xiang Chicken Essence is Halal certified. This room temperature version of the chicken essence means that you can carry it with you anywhere, even when you go overseas.
For my kids, Tian Yuan Xiang also sent over their Chicken Essence for Digestion. Just as the other box of chicken essence, this variation contains Chinese herbs. Present in this chicken essence is山药 (Chinese yam), 茯苓 (Poria), 芡实 (Euryales Semen) and莲子 (Lotus seed). These four herbs aid in strengthening and nourishing the stomach and spleen; in particular it helps with promoting a healthy appetite.
Unlike the room temperature version of the normal chicken essence, this version must be stored in the freezer.
Recently my boy missed an entire week of school because of a bacterial and viral infection. After his illness, I gave him this chicken essence for extra nourishment. Although my girl managed to escape the clutches of the virus at home, I also gave her the chicken essence because the chicken essence can also be consumed by a healthy person. The chicken essence for digestion is suitable for 1yr+ above, and the original chicken essence is suitable for 3yr+ above.
Quality-wise, Tian Yuan Xiang offers high-quality chicken essence which does more than just help combat fatigue. I like that they have so many variations, tailoring to different needs. For instance, they have chicken essence for ladies trying to conceive, pregnant, lactating and postpartum mums, students, post-surgery care and the elderly. With such a wide range of chicken essence to choose from for nourishment, we are indeed spoilt for choice!
