    Surprise find at Walmart in the Pharmacy department... it will be nice if Walmart sells bird nest too!

    Is this cheaper than the independent TCM herb shops?

    Interesting to see the drug stores get into alternative medicine stuff. I saw homeopathy stuff at Oakridge Zeller's Pharmacy o_O.

    Never been to a independent TCM herb shop so have no idea on the price there but I think it is about the same in T&T.

    Had to move some photos and the original location was lost. Reposting the photos back so that people know they can get chicken essence from Walmart.

    Brand's Essence of Chicken is for restoring or enhancing your mental state. It is health food, very useful when you are tired, over worked or stressed out. Here are some links and product info from the manufacturer.

    Sounds like the Asian equivalent of fish oil.

    More like Red Bull?

    And what about the hormones in the chicken ? And please don't even get me started for Red Bull. As a holistic, certified herbalist and nutritionist, I want to help Vancouverites make the right decisions when it comes to health and well-being.

    Here is how you can organically and naturally enhance your mental-state within weeks !!

    All you need is :
    Folic Acid ( a synthetic form of folate, a B vitamin found green leafy vegetables/fruits)
    and combine it with
    Gingo Biloba (a herbal supplement derived from the leaves of Ginko tree)
    ........... and if you really want to have your mind cleared and give it an even extra boost for the uplift - combine the above two supplements with

    Omega-3 fatty acids.

    And please stay away from Red Bulls ! Be the best you can be.

    What about Omega 6? How is Omega 6 compared to Omega 3?

    And glucosamine? Is glucosamine effective or is it just some "propaganda" by the health food manufacturers?

    They used to think glucosamine was effective for joint stuff but I think the latest research shows that it's only as effective as a placebo. Doesn't hurt to try but it's not a miracle.

    As for omega-6 vs omega-3, it's a rather controversial area (as with much of nutrition). A lot of the old recommendations like the 4:1 ratio have become outdated. Wikipedia is a reasonably good at summarizing the data out there.
