    In the good old days, the 'black chicken soup' is excellent tonic. Now equivalent is Essence of Chicken.
    But the concept and understanding is wrong.
    Present "black chicken soup" is like cooking the chicken which is fed with Chicken feed with Preservative which is highly bad for body, when we cook black chicken, we actually extract the preservative and drink it!? And we say that is good!?

    If you really want supplement then please look for pure vegetable/herbal supplement.Not only must be vegetable/herbal based, it must be also concentrated, extracted the best etc and not just simply mixed the herbal ![Most products in market is in this form!]


    OK ?

    One local brand of chicken essence advertised (advertises?) with a primary school kid proclaiming "thanks to XXX chicken essence, I can stay awake longer".

    Lack of sleep is a major cause of lack of concentration and affects mental capability. Cramming before examinations at the expense of sleep is counterproductive.

    I'm not sure what field you want to study for, but generally it's much easier to understand something than to memorize it in all its variations.
