Immune Boosting Chicken Soup Recipe – Can chicken soup really cure a cold? I won’t go so far as to claim it’s a miracle healer, but I will say that a good chicken soup can boost your immune system and improve your chances of beating a virus.

Well, it’s no magic potion in this day and age, but it may as well be. Chicken soup has several properties that make it useful in the treatment of certain illnesses:

  • Cleansing. “Plenty of fluids” is often advised when you’re ill. A body full of attacking allergens (like a virus) and battling antibodies needs to be flushed in order to get healthy. To that effect, the abundant broth in chicken soup performs aptly.
  • Disinfecting. Chicken soup is generally fairly salty (with lower-sodium versions), so that when it goes down your throat it acts in much the same way as gargling warm salt water. In other words, it removes bacteria in the throat, mouth, and tonsils.
  • Clears sinuses. Much like other warm liquids (for example, tea), it can help to clear the sinuses with steam.
  • Strengthening. The lean protein in chicken and nutrients from added vegetables work to bolster your strength when your body is feeling drained of energy. – Live Lighter
