Yup... i heard birdnest is good taking in the morning too. It's best if can take morning once wake up with empty stomach and at night before sleep. But the expenses to consume twice a day is killing. I got 1 birdnest expert told me that since birdnest is load of glycoprotein and amino acid it's better to take before sleep coz when our body feel tired mean our body is run out of protein and carborhydrate. Eat at night so that the body cell can absorb better. The birdnest i take is no brand which i get the whole nest then i cook every night. I only eat house nest with whole piece coz it's cleaner and without bleaching. I recommend you go to chinese medicine shop to buy the whole piece that they sell in a box of 6 or 8 pieces.


due to inconveniences to cook, so my bf bought me the instant one.... my aunty even buy from relativ which produce themself.... so cheap ler
i also saw some at chinese medicine shop..... price roughly same with the one i eat...... maybe in future, will try wat u advice....


n thanks also the expert information...... never realise that function at night. one more thing, u one time eat how big portion?

I cook 1 whole piece every night and divided it into 2 portion so that 1 piece i can eat for 2 days. So roughly in a month i only need 15 pieces. We cannot eat too much of birdnest in a day also coz it's cooling. I prefer the whole piece of nest coz at least i know it's 100% pure nest. Maybe because of this the effect is fast. Outside sell the ready bottle one have added alot of other stuff so maybe make the effect slow.

I double boil the birdnest. Since i am using house nest so the cooking time is only 35 minutes. The 2nd half i put in an air-tight container and keep in the fridge for the following night.
I never trust those birdnest that ready process outside. Since i am paying that much of price i rather buy the whole piece and cook. At least i know it's pure.
The one i buy is about RM380 a box of 6 pieces.

Hi eveparadise, thanks for your info smile.gif
You are right about people using chlorox to clean the cave nest coz yes, cave nest is full of all sort of thing. The dirt is so thick until you can't even see the nest. So they need chlorox to bleach it. I have seen the whole real piece of unprocessed cave nest. I don't think anyone would want to eat that anymore after see it. However, the chlorox method is not applicable to house nest. I have also seen the real unprocessed house nest that people freshly harvest from their bird house. It's dirty too but with just a few pieces of feather and you can still see the whole piece of white nest. It's very easy to clean that people don't need chlorox. As for the cave nest no matther how people bleach it, it can't be as white as the house nest. You can easily spot the cave nest in the shop which is yellowish or brownish color.

Hmm... is the birdnest manufacturer boss manufacture instant bird nest? What make you think that the instant birdnest is not using bleach method? Since it is already instant made, nobody know how they process it.

The instant one of course i cant guaranty. But the boss himself is doing house nest business, n do not encourage us to eat house nest. How come he discourage us to support own business, right? SOme more encourage us to buy brand like Eu Yan Sang, Lo Hong Ka(which im taking now)...... Isnt it weird?

Anyway, just fyi. Thx for your info as well.And hope we both become pretty & prettier by the bird nest. laughing.gif

The guy seem to be has too much money to burnt until he willing to condemn his own business.
Since we both and maybe other people are taking birdnest, i would like to tell more info about birdnest that an expert friend teach me about which nest to take and which not. He own 27 birdhouses and a few in Indonesia. He do export birdnest to Singapore and Taiwan. He also got supply to Eu Yan Sang.
When talk about birdnest people will say that cave nest is the best right? Coz it is orignally from there and people think the best must be back to original. Like i said previously they haven't see the real unprocess cave nest yet. Most shops like to sell cave nest coz they can earn more from cave nest than house nest because the cost for cave nest is cheaper than house nest and at the same time they can sell the cave nest higher or same price as house nest. They claim that the cave nest is more original, more minerals and the cleaning process is hard. Common sense... once the cave nest already bleach do you think the mineral is still there? Bcoz of this, the cave nest is use widely in all the product that contain bird nest eg. instant birdnest. Another thing about these ready consumable birdnest in the tiny bottle that sell in the market (not sure about Lo Hong Ka), mostly the birdnest content is just teeny weeny and mojority people add in agar-agar and white fungus because the structure really look like birdnest. Now do you still wonder why sometimes in the market you can see a box of 6 tiny bottles birdnest only sell for less than RM50? As for house nest, it contain the same amount of nutrient (no less and no more) than cave nest. Even for exportation people want the white house nest and not cave nest. This is why i said earlier that i only take the whole piece house nest.

O... thx for the info......

As u say lot maybe mix with algae, honestly i also don trust.... the lo hong ka & eu yan sang also got many range la... of coz i wont consume the tiny cheap bottle.....
As per claim of ur fren..... u got all the good point.im not so lucky can get expert advice & pure good birdnest which u can see it urself.....
Me myself is a normal consumer, our thinking is choose a branded name & the best range in shop. Some more other shops & other brand we not sure & not confident. if let me choose, i will still choose lo hong ka & eu yan sang, as they are many years in Malaysia. logically thinking is lot of supplier is cheating consumer. That would make us choose both brand as mentioned above

Maybe next time u can help me buy also haha laughing.gif , since u have seen the most pure one......
then can help my bf save $ also.... clapping.gif

Thx ya, for the info.

Can u PM me where u staying? maybe we cna contact...... when i really need more info from u....

Vit E is best taken after meal at night...

Guess I am a more organic person, even my 4 legged dogs are on hollistic..

Most of the supplements I am taking now are of the natural type, organic fruit juices, organic soy milk, Manuka UMF 10, bee pollen, alfafa, wheat grass, organic black molases, apple cider, organic fibre...Tried my best to be vegan and as organic as possible...

The only man made supplement that I have been taking for long is Vit C..been taking that for almost 20 years....

I am consuming USANA Essentials (Multivitamins), Active Calcium Plus and Biomega (Fish Oil). This multivitamin actually comes with full Vitamin B and you doesn't need additional bottle of B - Complex supplements. Their products also suitable for pregnant women.

If you wanted something with strong antioxidant, you may try the Proflavanol C100 (Grape seed extract and Vitamin C). It is good to improves blood circulation, blood pressure, promotes healthy skin, lower bad cholesterol and it is anti-inflammation.

If you are having high antioxidant drink, you can test it with iodine mixed with water. If the iodine mixture turned to clear colour, you are in the right supplements. Good Luck!
