Homemade chicken soup has long been used to fight the common cold. It flushes out the nasal passages with its aromatic steam and offers hydration and comfort.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
There is new evidence that chicken has anti-inflammatory properties, particularly if the skin is left in. In 2000, scientists at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha found that some components of chicken soup inhibit neutrophil (the major fraction of white blood cells) migration. Neutrophil activity can stimulate the release of mucus in the nasal cavity, which may be the cause of the coughs and stuffy nose caused by upper respiratory infections of cold viruses. Chicken soup could play a mild anti-inflammatory role that may perhaps lead to a temporary easing of the symptoms of illness. However, because of its weak efficacy, it cannot be used as the main method to cure colds.
