When it comes to comfort food, nothing beats homemade chicken noodle soup, especially during cold and flu season. A good home made chicken soup is rich in protein, calcium, and gelatin from slowly cooked bones. The vitamins and minerals come from added fresh vegetables. The gelatin in the chicken stock provides the body glycine, an amino acid that is crucial for liver detoxification. Another important benefit you get from good old-fashioned chicken soup is electrolytes, which is especially important when your body is dehydrated. The best part is, the soup is super yummy!
