It’s not just an old wives tale! Chicken soup really is good for the common cold!
And here are 3 reasons why:
1. Chicken contains an amino acid that loosens mucus and improves respiratory function. So it’ll help you breathe easier…
2. Veggies, like carrots and potatoes, boost your immunity – so you can fight off infection.
3. The broth can help clear your sinuses! Clear, thin fluids, like broth, thin out your mucus. Plus, staying hydrated helps your body fight infection. And warm fluids work best – because both the steam and the warmth can contribute to clearing the mucus, which will relieve your upper airway.
