All-Natural, Proven Goodness in a Bottle for Pregnant Mummies
In Chinese tradition, a popular pregnancy tonic is to double-boil chicken in herbs to obtain a highly nutritious tonic for expectant mothers. Chicken is believed to boost Qi energy while strengthening the immune system and lungs.
Most mothers are recommended to consume this nutritious tonic on a daily basis, but it can take up to hours to prepare because of the double-boil method. This technique requires the chicken to be steamed in its own juices, instead of being submerged in water, to produce a concentrated tonic. That’s where BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken comes in handy! While it is suitable for all ages, this bottle of concentrated essence is especially recommended for new mothers-to-be for prenatal nourishment and lactation. Beyond providing prenatal nourishment, here’s what each bottle of BRAND’S Essence of Chicken can do for you:
- Improves Quality of Mother’s Milk
BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken is a pregnancy & breastfeeding essential backed by science. In a clinical study done on 235 post-delivery mothers, regular intake was shown to promote early milk secretion and improve milk production, while maintaining the high quality of mother’s milk.
By supplementing your pregnancy with regular consumption of chicken extract, it increases lactoferrin*, EGF and TGF-B2 components in the breast milk, which are beneficial to the growth, development and immunity of infants.1
*Lactoferrin is a protein present in human milk and other secretions that protects breast-fed infants against bacterial infections and regulates the absorption of iron in the intestine and delivery of iron to the cells.

- Reduces Spikes in Blood Sugar Levels
Gestational diabetes is a serious pregnancy complication caused by high blood sugar (glucose) levels during pregnancy, which affects 1 in 5 women. If untreated, it could pose an increased risk of type 2 diabetes developing in the child. The main cause of gestational diabetes boils down to one key factor – your diet.
Festive seasons are the biggest pit holes. With all the food, parties and family obligations, cravings tend to be elevated and people tend to eat larger servings of sweet and fatty food, resulting in poor blood sugar control.
However, expectant mothers can now reduce the risk of gestational diabetes with regular consumption of BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken, as it lowers glycaemic response.2,3
Glycaemic response refers to the changes in blood glucose after consuming a carbohydrate-rich food. Decreased glycaemic response has been associated with a lower risk of diabetes and metabolic diseases. So mothers-to-be can now cut themselves some slack and enjoy the festivities with their loved ones!
