Many of these are anecdotal. Chicken soup is surely good for a cold because it is easy for the body to process and bone broth is exceptionally nutritious and contains ample gelatin, which is crucial for tissue repair. There's nothing magical about chicken soup in and of itself. You could probably develop some type of equally magical pudding made out of egg yolks, warmed milk and gelatin. Clearly, nutritious foods that are simple for your body to process will benefit during a cold, and chicken soup fulfills that.
