I haven’t had a full night worth of uninterrupted sleep ever since my 2nd child was born (and he’s 2.5 yrs old now). I sleep late to lead my adult life, wake up multiple times at night to make milk, wake my 5 year old up to pee, and go off to work at 8am. I feel like I need an energy and brain booster to function better everyday.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids, and sleep isn’t really as important as them or as my me-time and couple time with my husband. So I sacrifice sleep. Sometimes I wake up really tired, my brain’s dull and I dread the full-on working day ahead of me. My bad, I know I did make the choice to sleep late.
So my solution?
Premium Boiled Chicken Essence
At the recent Kids World Fair, I came across Lao Xie Zhen‘s premium boiled chicken essence packed in convenient little packages with the recommended serving per day.
I tried it and was surprised at how much it tastes like the pure chicken soup that my mother-in-law made for me during my confinement! She made a small bowl of chicken essence for me every other day using the breast of 2 chickens, and slow cooked it for several hours. My heart was bleeding because it was so expensive to make! But it tasted so good and I do think it helped to combat fatigue and increase my energy levels.
After my first taste of Lao Xie Zhen Boiled Chicken Essence, I checked the ingredient list to see why it tastes so good, and so real! Turns out, the only 2 key ingredients used are chicken and pork. I was really impressed and kept thinking about it after I left.
Lao Xie Zhen uses 2nd generation hens that are at least 12 months old and boils them together with premium pork ribs for 8 hours to produce their premium boiled chicken essence. Premium pork ribs are added to enhance the collagen content and helps to add an additional layer of taste.
I wish I knew about Lao Xie Zhen Boiled Chicken Essence when I was doing my confinement, then I would have saved all the trouble we went to, to make the chicken soup for me.
A pack of Lao Xie Zhen Boiled Chicken Essence costs about $6.80, and I would totally rather this than buying chicken breasts and going through the effort to cook it. I have decided to start drinking chicken essence as regularly as my pocket can afford it, especially if I’ve had a late night and needed to be alert the next day.
1 sip will really perk you up.
Lao Xie Zhen is Voted #1 Chicken Essence in Taiwan
If you haven’t heard of them, well you can be assured that they are an established brand.
Most other brands that manufacture Chicken Essence use the dripping or steaming method. This causes loss of water on the surface of the chicken and results in water flowing out of the chicken. Only small amounts of the nutrients are extracted in this process.
Lao Xie Zhen Boiled Chicken Essence is different because they use the traditional slow-boiling method where the chicken is immersed into water and through this unique boiling method, a more complete extraction of nutrients is achieved. Nutritional tests have found that the level of protein is higher in chicken essence prepared by the slow-boiling method.
Every packet of Lao Xie Zhen Boiled Chicken Essence is packaged conveniently for room temperature storage, in a 4-layered opaque sachet exclusively imported from Japan. Similar to baby bottles, the inner packaging material is tested with no plasticiser & heavy metal residue, thereby ensuring that it is safe to consume from. It has no preservative and because they use high temperature and high-pressure sterilization sealing method (日本高温高压滅菌密封技术) to preserve the nutrients, the chicken essence can be stored up to 18 months.
