Medical Mythbuster: Is Eating Chicken Soup Good for a Cold?

Grandmothers throughout America will be glad to know that chicken soup really can help you deal with a cold. In fact, medical researchers have put more than a few hours of study into this. The research suggests that chicken soup contains anti-inflammatory properties that may help counteract cold symptoms. In addition, liquid broth soups are known to help speed up the movement of mucous in the nose which works to alleviate congestion. So don’t forget to put a can of chicken noodle soup on the menu the next time you come down with a cold. Better yet, make a homemade version and freeze it until you need it!
