With signs of fatigue showing up more regularly now, I am aware of the need to pay more attention to my well-being. I have been rather diligent in running at least 3 times a week. It’s a real boost to my energy levels and stamina (it also enables me to sleep better at night from being so dead tired).
Errr.. but the underlying reason why I run is so that I can feed my food indulging habit and keep the weight gain in check *winks*.
I have also been taking Huiji’s Waist Tonic as a health supplement since I received it.
First, let me clarify .. it does not make your waist smaller (though I wish it did and it was that easy).
Second, it does not taste bitter (I had expected it to be, really). In fact, it is quite pleasant to drink. I handed the little cup round the office and many were surprised that though it had a strong herbal scent, it was not at all bitter. A colleague even said it tastes like the gravy in the Yao Chai Chee (Herbal Paper Wrapped Chicken).
I like it.
It is easy to drink. If you have tried other tonics, some of the alcohol content is really high. You have to take really .. REALLY small sips so as not to burn your throat.
There is NO alcohol here.
Other pluses is that it does not contain cane sugar (love that it is sweeten by the Dates used), its suitable for vegetarians and is HALAL certified. There is also assurance from being a Made in Singapore product that is produced in a local “Good Manufacturing Practices” (GMP) Certified Factory. So Proud!
This tonic can help strengthen your waist, nourish your “yin” and blood, enhances blood circulation, improve complexion and relieve coldness in hands and feet. It is great for women who tire easily and under confinement, as it invigorates vital energy. And get this .. it contains a herb called “Shouwu” that helps nourish and darken the hair!
Yup, new ritual in the morning as I spend a little longer in the bathroom eyeballing my hair roots.
Apart from drinking it neat straight up, you can also add it to home-cooked food. I find that it adds a whole new dimension to the flavours. Its good to step things up in the kitchen every now and then and with Huiji’s Tonic its easy, it’s like the dish has been tended to for hours with the taste it yields. Here is one of my favourite recipes, Easy No Fuss Chicken Stew.
