There is nothing worse than having a runny nose, a ratty cough and a stuffy head when winter comes around. Whether it is a virus attack, weather changing too fast or one catching cold, we all know that chicken soup that feels good for the soul is perhaps the best treatment for cold than over-the counter medications or antibiotics that doctors love to prescribe.
All cultures and lands opt for chicken soup, broth or yakhni when it comes to treating flu. The Jewish didn’t call it Penicillin for nothing. Apparently chicken contains an amino acid called cysteine which is similar to chemical content called acetylcysteine that doctors prescribe for respiratory tract infections.
