Flu Fighter Chicken Noodle Soup | Recipe - click for details!
According to the National Institutes of Health, the idea of hot soup as a cold remedy has been around since at least the 12th century and may really help ease the symptoms.
Soup can help open congested sinuses.
All liquid broth soups will speed up the movement of mucous in your nose simply because it's a hot fluid and that causes dilation of blood vessels which causes increased blood flow and allows the mucous to flush everything out. And that will help alleviate congestion.
Soups are also hydrating, which is particularly important when fighting off an infection. Clear broth soups are hydrating because they typically contain not only water but also salt and so those two together are good properties for hydration.
Some research suggests chicken soup in particular can help reduce inflammation associated with colds and flu, thus providing some symptom relief.
While soup won't actually cure a cold or flu, these benefits make it a good choice when you're feeling less than your best.
