PROVEN REM­EDY OR OLD WIVES’ TALE?

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

Some peo­ple swear by the heal­ing ef­fects of chicken soup when they’re un­well, but is there any truth to it? Yes, in fact, sev­eral stud­ies sug­gest that chicken soup re­ally may make you feel bet­ter be­cause it has a mild anti-in­flam­ma­tory ef­fect, which helps to re­duce many of the symp­toms. Chicken is also a rich source of vi­ta­min B6, which sup­ports im­mune sys­tem re­sponse. Throw­ing in a few veg­eta­bles adds to the in­flam­ma­tion-calm­ing ef­fect.
