The edible birds’ nests are made by swiftlet Collocalia-Fuciphaga, found in the tropical coastal area in South-east Asia. This unique swiftlet build their nests only with their saliva to form a composition of interwoven strands of salivary laminae cement. The nests are then crystallized and ready for swiftlet to lay eggs. When the egg has hatched and the young chick fledged, the nest is abandoned – a female will never lay her eggs in an old nest.
Birds’ nests are rich in protein, amino acids and minerals. Scientific reports have repeatedly shown that bird’s nest can enhance tissue growth and cellular regeneration, slowing the ageing process, and boost cell mediated immunity in humans. It can also regulate the endocrine system and other body functions.
Birds’ nests are beneficial to all kinds of people, especially children, the elderly, pregnant women, and post-surgery recoverers. Patients suffering from coughs, tracheitis, bronchitis, asthma or lung disease also benefit.
