Our bird’s nests are collected from the nest of a swiftlet that lives particularly in cliffs mostly off the coast of Thailand and Indonesia. The bird’s nest is denoted as the first item of the Eight Treasures in Chinese sayings and once served as a royal offering in ancient times. The bird’s nest can nourish the kidneys, lungs, heart and the stomach and also regulates circulation. Bird’s nests are made with coagulated saliva secretion (Jin), considered to be one of the three precious substances in Chinese Pharmacology. Bird’s nests are also high in protein and contain reasonable amounts of calcium, iron, riboflavin and three essential amino acids: lysine, methionine and tryptophan. The Bird’s nest has been greatly coveted by ladies who consume it as a skin nourishment tonic.
