Chicken Soup Can Have Anti-Inflammatory Effect Relieving the Symptoms of Cold
A study, conducted by the researcher Dr. Stephen Rennard of the University of Nebraska, found that chicken soup can relieve the symptoms of upper respiratory infections as it contains anti-inflammatory agents.
In the course of the study, Dr. Rennard examined if the movement of neutrophils, the most common white cells in the blood defending the body against infection, would be blocked or reduced by the soup. Scientists suspect that reducing the movement of neutrophils may decrease activity in the upper respiratory tract that causes symptoms of the cold.
Although the researchers are not sure of the exact ingredient in the soup that is able to fight colds, they believe that the chicken soups containing more than five vegetables are high in fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants so that could be a combination of ingredients working together for beneficial effects.
