The TV home of “fake news” finally got one right: CNN just released a big report confirming that Grandma’s cure for the common cold actually works.
Yes, friend, chicken soup can help ease the worst of this nasty winter virus.
Maybe CNN should avoid politics and stick to soup!
I’m not even kidding here. It did a bang-up job looking at years of research, which confirms just what you’ve read here in the Daily Dose: Chicken soup might be good “for the soul,” but it’s even better for the chest.
One lab study cited by the network finds that the healthy compounds in a bowl of chicken soup slow immune cells in a way that indicates less inflammation.
That in turn could ease the symptoms — especially in the chest — and shorten the duration of your illness.
That’s not the only research on this. A study from about five years back found that carnosine, an amino acid in chicken soup, can goose your immune system to fight off viral invaders like the nasty little germs behind the cold, flu, and more.
And let’s not forget the steam of the soup, which can float up through your nasal passages and give you a little relief.
While steam in general will help when you’re sick, one study put chicken soup up against water — hot and cold — and found the real broth activated the mucociliary transport system that boots nasty germs and go out of your respiratory tract.
Of course, CNN and the scientists it interviewed say that more research is “needed.”
Good luck with that.
No one’s going to get rich on chicken soup, so you can bet there’s no big rush to fund a study. But don’t let that stop you from doing some science of your own.
Next time you feel a cold coming on… or next time someone in your home is sick… try a dose of chicken soup.
You can buy it — if you can be sure it’s quality stuff — or make it on your own. It’s not hard — just make sure the broth is the real deal, made from the bones of a chicken, which will make it a powerful elixir loaded with magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, and sulfur, as well as calcium and other essential trace minerals.
Next time you have a whole chicken for dinner, toss the carcass in your pressure cooker or crock-pot. You’ll find a whole mess of tasty recipes online, and you can freeze the broth for whenever it’s needed.
Soup is good food,
