Double-Boiled Peanut Root Chicken Soup

Peanut Roots Soup1

I made this Peanut Root Soup for my 12 yrs old son after I got to know it's nutrients and that this soup help youngsters to grow taller. It help to increase immunity and promote better health especially when given to them during their teen years. I don't know how true is it and there is also no scientific report on how the soup made from peanut root would affect the growth of children but, it's no harm to try right?? Nevertheless, the soup is very tasty!!

ya, my mum also told this peanut root good for young kid, but my kids are too tall already, so not dare to give them drink, otherwise I can't imagine their height will go until...hehehe...
