When you're sick in bed, there are few things in the world better than a nice hot bowl of chicken soup--leading us to today's wives' tale: Chicken soup cures colds. Well, turns out chicken soup isn't just awesome for your soul, but it helps to deal with your cold as well. According to a team of researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, chicken soup contains special anti-inflammatory properties that deals with the side effects of your cold.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="614"] Source: taste.com.au[/caption] Chicken soup--given the epic nickname "Jewish pencillin"--is a comfort food, so many experts believe that the benefits are all in your mind (psychosomatic). When you feel better because you ate a bowl of chicken soup, the symptoms of your cold are less noticeable. Another belief is that the steam helps to clear congestion in your nose and lungs, while others believe that the liquid in the soup hydrates your body and flushes out the virus. Either way, thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties of chicken soup, you can kiss that cold goodbye!
