Best Chicken Soup Ever




It’s been called nature’s penicillin and is at the top of the list for its curative powers. Hot chicken soup helps clear clogged airways, and the nourishing broth will give you more energy. And when following Maria's recipe, you will guarantee a quick recovery.

In this recipe, I use, mainly, garlic, onion and ginger. Before cooking, you should know why I chose these 3 ingredients to create my delicious chicken soup.

Garlic ranks as one of the most potent remedies of all time. The most important compound that derives from garlic, is Allicin that provides the greatest reputed health benefits.
As well as having antibiotic properties, allicin is an excellent anti-fungal and garlic preparations have been used in folk medicine to treat skin infections such as athlete's foot.
Onions contain a large amount of sulfur and are especially good for the liver.
Sulfur-containing amino acids are found in onions as well and are called methionine and cystine and, among other things, they are very good at detoxifying your body from heavy metals. In fact, they are able to latch on to mercury, cadmium and lead and escort them out of the body.
Vitamin C, also contained in onions, is excellent at detoxifying the body and is effective in removing lead, arsenic and cadmium. So increasing consumption of onions can help the body to get rid of these harmful metals.
Onion is very good for your heart, it will help:
• Boost beneficial HDL cholesterol
• Thin the blood
• Retard blood clotting
• Lower total blood cholesterol
• Lower triglycerides
• Lower blood pressure
Studies reveal that antioxidants in onions can protect you against cancer is by reducing the DNA damage in cells caused by free radicals.
Ginger  have many medicinal properties such as : anti-emetic/anti-nausea, anti-clotting agent, antispasmodic, anti-fungal, anti inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, analgesic, circulatory stimulant, expectorant, hypo-tensive, increases blood flow, promotes sweating and relaxes peripheral blood vessels.
Ginger is good for your health and has been said by some to be a plant directly from the Garden of Eden. It is also said that consuming Ginger before taking a plane flight can prevent motion sickness. It can make good tea, or you can use it as a spicy addition to almost any recipe.
