Why is Chicken Noodle Soup a Hangover Food?

As you know I love to talk about everything that has to do with the holidays. And since hangovers seem to be part of holiday cheer consequences... I knew I had to do a post about how beneficial chicken noodle soup is for a hangover.

  1. Salt in broth retains much needed water
  2. Bone broth re hydrates
  3. Chicken provides protein and boosts liver detoxification
  4. Nutrient dense / easy to digest / rich in flavor / boost healing

It's All about the Bone Broth

Broth is a liquid food preparation, typically consisting of either water or an already flavored stock, in which bones, meat, fish, cereal grains, or vegetables have been simmered. Broth is used as a basis for other edible liquids such as soup, gravy, or sauce. It can be eaten alone or with garnish. If other ingredients are used, such as rice, pearl barley or oats, it is then generally called soup.All bone broths beef, chicken, fish, lamb and more are staples in the traditional diets of every culture and the basis of all fine cuisine. That’s because bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor and–they boost healing. Bone broth or stock was a way our ancestors made use of every part of an animal. Bones and marrow, skin and feet, tendons and ligaments that you can’t eat directly, can be boiled then simmered over a period of days. This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine, and glutamine that have the power to transform your health. 

Benefits and usage of Bone Broth are:

The age-old custom of eating chicken soup for curing a cold isn't simply a wives' tale; traditional cultures sensed the healing wisdom behind the practice. Brimming with essential nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium, along with collagen, gelatin, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate, slow-simmered bone broth is an important addition to a healthful diet. It alleviates inflammation, heals a leaky gut and fortifies against bacterial and viral infections. Bone broth also strengthens the teeth, joints, bones, skin and hair.
  • It heals a leaky gut : The gelatin in bone broth protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and helps aid in the digestion of nutrients.
  • Fights infections such as colds and flu : A study published in the journal Chest shows eating chicken soup during a respiratory infection reduces the number of white blood cells, which are the cells that cause flu and cold symptoms.
  • Reduces joint pain and inflammation : The glucosamine in bone broth can actually stimulate the growth of new collagen, repair damaged joints and reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Produces gorgeous skin, hair and nails : The collagen and gelatin in bone broth supports hair growth and helps to keep your nails strong.
  • Helps with bone formation, growth and repair : The calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in bone broth helps our bones to grow and repair.
  • Nutritious : Homemade bone broth contains all nutrients and minerals found in bones and tendons rather than just one or two found in pills. Slow cooking preserves the nutrients better than the high heat extraction used to make supplements.
  • Fights inflammation : Bone broth is very high in the anti-inflammatory amino acids glycine and proline.
  • Promotes sleep and calms the mind : The amino acid glycine found in bone broth can be very calming.
