During the worst of my flares chicken broth and later soup were about
the only foods that I could tolerate. I have seen dozens of other IBDers post similar results, that chicken broth is one of the safest foods to eat during a flare.
Then I found this about
chicken and inflammation:www.lef.org/magazine/mag2013/oct2013_Novel-Mechanism-Protects-Against-Arthritis_01.htmUC-II was discovered when a team of scientists at the University of Nebraska found that chicken soup prevented the mobilization of immune system cells to sites of inflammation. Upon further analysis, they discovered that it was not vegetables, but a component of the chicken broth itself that exerted this anti-inflammatory activity.
The researchers showed that chicken-derived type II collagen functions to regulate the immune system so that it stops attacking proteins normally found in healthy joint cartilage.
