What granny only suspected, we now know exactly: chicken soup is a delicious and effective medicine for colds. The ingredients inhibit the activity of the white blood cells, which play an important role in inflammation.

Shiitake mushrooms are not only tasty: with their polysaccharides they strengthen the immune system just like ginger with its essential oils. Vitamin C and useful substances from curry and co. are also added to strengthen the immune system.
