Chicken Broth- "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." Dr. Keri Peterson, National Institutes of Health Gelatin boosts your immune system because it's packed with amino acids, calcium and magnesium. "Garlic contains compounds that help the immune system fight germs.
Whole garlic contains a compound called alliin. When garlic is crushed or chewed, this compound turns into allicin (with a c), the main active ingredient in garlic.
Allicin contains sulfur, which gives garlic its distinctive smell and taste.
However, allicin is unstable, so it quickly converts to other sulphur-containing compounds thought to give garlic its medicinal properties.
These compounds have been shown to boost the disease-fighting response of some types of white blood cells in the body when they encounter viruses, such as the viruses that cause the common cold or flu." -Healthline "Honey has antimicrobial properties, which may allow it to fight some bacteria and viruses. One study found that honey was effective in relieving coughing as a symptom of a cold in children over the age of 1 year." - Medical News Today Peas contain folic acid which boosts your immune system.
Turmeric "Curcumin in turmeric has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent that can modulate the activation of T cells, B cells, macrophages, neutrophils, natural killer cells, and dendritic cells. It is more effective than NSAIDS in anti-inflammatory properties. Research has documented that the physical structure of curcumin is able to bind to cells and reduce the entry of a virus into a cell." -MeghanTelpner .com
