2. Ginseng

Ginseng chinese herb

Ginseng is a well-known traditional Chinese medicine herb, and for good reason. It has been consistently proven to improve memory, mood and concentration. As it contains saponins, it also supports the body by improving stamina, promoting calmness and combating fatigue in children.

3. Eu Yan Sang’s Sleep Formula

TCM supplements for children

It is easy for the stress of school work to affect even the happiest of children. When studying for exams, children often stay up late at night and this can disturb their sleep pattern and leave them feeling tired during the day.

Intermittent sleep and mood fluctuations caused by fatigue can be improved by consuming Eu Yan Sang’s Sleep Formula to calm their nerves and give them a good night’s rest.

4. Wolfberries


Wolfberries are an excellent way of making sure that your child consumes the perfect amount of nutrition and minerals needed for his or her day-to-day activities. Rich in vitamin B, B2, C and betaine, it protects your eyes and encourages blood flow.

This helps to combat the long hours spent sitting at a desk or staring at a laptop screen. Plus, organic barbary wolfberries can be easily added to stir-fry dishes, soups, or desserts.

5. Burdock drink

Instead of watching our kids guzzle down sugar-loaded bubble tea or soda, keep some healthy options for them at home. Burdock drink is a tasty, refreshing combination of fresh Burdock and nourishing ingredients such as Astragalus.

Burdock is also a good natural remedy for annoying common ailments such as toothache, sore throat, or cough. Place a couple of bottles in the refrigerator to have a tasty and healthy treat anytime!
