The last couple of weeks have been very hectic, with my mum in hospital and my son enlisting to the army, we needed to nourish our bodies and the Huiji Waist Tonic collaboration came at just the right time!!
We love the freshness of the fish cutlets and the delicate taste of the herbal gravy. The premium herbs that are in the Huiji Waist Tonic can help to ease backaches and lower back pain. It can also combat fatigue, rheumatism and insomnia. Its health benefits include enhancing blood circulation and nourishing vital energy.
