What is it about chicken soup and colds?
Studies have identified the cold
and flu-fighting compound in chicken soup as carnosine, which is found in the skeletal muscle of most vertebrates. Just 100g of chicken breast contains 400mg of carnosine!
Carnosine strengthens the immune system
so that it can fight off viral invaders, including colds and flu
Already way back in 1993, researchers discovered that thanks to carnosine, chicken soup can reduce inflammation, improve respiratory infection symptoms, relieve nasal congestion, keep you hydrated and stimulate white blood cells to fight those infections.
It will help loosen up phlegm and it’s delicious to eat so it goes down easily when you’re feeling ill.
