Chicken soup really does make us feel better

While we’ve always thought it was a myth, it turns out that when ill a bowl of hot chicken soup really can make you feel better.

A recent study of 1,000 UK adults found that chicken soup can have the same positive effect on our wellbeing as taking paracetamol.

More than half of those surveyed (55%) claim to feel better after eating chicken soup and one in ten (9%) said it was better than drugs such as paracetemol.

28% of people even believe chicken soup is at least as effective as over-the-counter medicines.

Incredibly, 7% said that they had sometimes felt “back to normal” after eating it.

Afruj Miah, from GLORIOUS!, said: "In America, they call New York Chicken Noodle Soup ‘penicillin soup’ because so many people believe in its restorative powers.
