Bird's nest is a traditional precious natural tonic that has been consumed in China since the Ming Dynasty. It has been an effective tonic for emperors and nobles. The bird's nest is formed by condensing saliva from the swiftlet sparrow or the same genus. The bird's nest is high in protein, with a delicate fragrance and a slight stickiness when chewed. Since ancient times, bird's nest has been regarded as a fine food and precious product for nourishing yin body fluids and beauty.
