A recent study conducted in China examined the effects of chicken broth from different chicken breeds on the immune response of mice with damaged immune systems. The results showed that chicken soup slowed down the movement of inflammatory cells, improved the activity of the thymus gland, and improved the structure of the spleen. These findings suggest that chicken soup can be beneficial for improving the immune response.
The research included several parameters, including cytokine levels, which are known to cause unpleasant symptoms in viral diseases. While it is not yet clear how chicken soup improves immune function, it does seem to have a positive impact.
In terms of preparing healthy chicken soup, it is recommended to remove as much fat as possible. This can be done by boiling the chicken and pouring out all but a small amount of water. Visible fat should be removed from the pot and the chicken should be washed clean with oil-free water before cooking. Vegetables can be added at the end of cooking, followed by immediate covering with a lid to retain their nutrients. Parsley and spices can also be added for flavor without adding unnecessary calories or fat.
