Chicken as a first aid
A very common thing to do when you are sick, especially in eastern Europe, is to grab a hot bowl of chicken soup to help you get on your legs. Many think it is just a placebo, but there is scientific evidence, that it is not.
Poultry, such as chicken or turkey is a rich source of vitamin B6. This vitamin is a mediator in the process of red blood cell creation as well as other chemical reactions inside of an organism. Chicken broth is the most-known form of poultry soup, which is a great source of vitamin B6, which may help to fight the infection.
