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.

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.
