Bird's Nest Research
Scientific studies and findings
Identification of edible bird's nest with amino acid and monosaccharide analysis. EBN were revealed to be rich in protein and essential amino acids as well as contain a wider varitety of monosaccharides than most food items.

Identification of two novel antioxidant peptides from edible bird's nest (Aerodramus fuciphagus) protein hydrolysates. "...EBN protein hydrolysates are a good source of natural antioxidants and could be applied as nutraceutical compounds."
ZHANG Y, MUSTAPHA I, ISMAIL M, ISMAIL N, HOU Z.
Edible bird's nest attenuates procoagulation effects of high-fat diet in rats. EBN has been reported to improve dyslipidemia, which is closely linked to hypercoagulation states. "...potential for lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease-related hypercoagulation due to hypercholesterolemia.

Edible bird's nest enhances antioxidant capacity and increases lifespan in Drosophila Melanogaster. EBN can extend lifespan, decrease mortality rate and increase survival rate in heat-stress test. "...attributing to the increasing antioxidant enzyme activities and decreasing content of lipid peroxidation products...
