While the health benefits of bird’s nest are well-documented as it is a widely-consumed food, many have asked regarding the benefits of consuming bird’s nest drinks during pregnancy. Today kita nak share the interesting reasons here just for you.

The positive effects on pregnancy could be primarily attributed to the following amino acids found in bird’s nest.

  • Glycine is known to reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia in pregnant women, which can also decrease the possibility of neural tube defects and promote comprehensive developments of the foetus.
  • Bird’s Nest is rich in Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) which is a substance that is responsible for skin and tissue repair, according to modern studies. Threonine found in bird’s nest promotes elastin and collagen formation of the skin and to prevent skin from ageing. When consumed regularly, bird’s nest drinks can help the skin retain its radiance and natural beauty which ultimately reduces the appearance of stretch marks during pregnancy.
  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy and postpartum is a known cause of emotional depression, which Tryptophan can act as an antidepressant as it reduces stress, anxiety and fatigue.
  • Tryptophan (a precursor of Serotonin and Melatonin) also promotes optimal growth for the child as well as the recovery process after birth for the mother.

Additionally, the main carbohydrate in bird’s nest is Sialic Acid which is purported to contribute to neurological and intellectual development in infants.

So in conclusion, regular consumption of bird’s nest drinks can be a contributing factor to the birth of healthy babies.
