Delicious and especially good in winter: chicken broth. A hot stove filled with it gives a feeling of cozy warmth and brings back memories of childhood.
Our grandmothers were happy to serve it to us as a miracle cure for colds and were sure that the invigorating decoction would help. In the days of the Crown, of course, it would not be a mistake to cook it in a large pot, perhaps even flavored with a little chili or ginger.
Helps with colds
In traditional Chinese medicine, chicken soup is a tonic and is used to prevent colds. Researchers from the University of Nebraska have long scientifically proven that chicken soup helps recover from colds, sore throats, runny noses, and upper respiratory tract infections.
The immune system is supported
They found, for example, that leukocytes (neutrophil granulocytes), which are jointly responsible for the inflammatory process, are blocked or their activity is inhibited by the consumption of chicken soup. The amino acid cysteine, which has an anti-inflammatory effect and supports the immune system, is responsible for this extremely positive effect.
By the way, hot chicken soup also helps to get rid of a severe cold. In addition, chicken soup contains a significant amount of zinc. Every freezer should have room for organic chicken soup.
