Grandma's chicken soup doesn't have any high tech chemicals, compounds, or derivatives that prevent the common cold. So how does it work? The answer is that chicken soup pulls less blood to the GI tract while providing balanced nutrition. The more blood that stays in circulation, the more blood is available to fight disease. A whopping 60% of metabolism gets consumed by digestion. Releasing the power of that 60% is the key to Grandma's magic and boosting immunity. Given the choice of chicken soup or echinacea, choose the chicken. And if you're a vegetarian choose kitchari. Kitchari is a Ayurveda's vegetarian version of chicken soup used for thousands of years.
