The Advantages of drinking soup


It is not a coincidence that soups have become the number one choice for health watchers across the world. Read below to know more about the ‘Soup Advantage:’


  • Soups are one of the most nutritive methods of consuming vegetables.
  • Since soups are made by boiling ingredients in water or broth until they are soft, the flavor is not lost, and is absorbed in the liquid. The body can absorb and assimilate these nutrients quickly without having to digest and break down the ingredients.
  • Soups are low in fats (especially saturated fat) and calories.
  • A bowl of soup before a meal helps reduce food intake.
  • Soups are great appetizers too.
  • They are good for people of all ages, and especially for those who have difficulty chewing or digesting.
  • Soups are good immunity-builders.
  • Hot soups, especially chicken soups, have an anti-inflammatory effect, which makes them effective against cold and fever.
  • Low-salt soups get rid of excess body wastes.
  • A daily bowl of soup can also reduce the risk of cancers, heart diseases and stroke.
  • Some soups have been traditionally used as effective remedies for diarrhea.
  • Soups have also been found excellent against asthma, diabetes, and high cholesterol levels.
  • The high antioxidant content of soups can rectify the damage caused by high blood sugar levels.
  • Soups help restore the necessary water balance, which in turn keeps our blood pressure (and salt content) under control.
  • Soups are also good decongestants. This is because onions and pepper added to soups are natural decongestants.
  • Soups are a healthy substitute for tea/coffee etc.
  • Soups are also the best way for your kids to get the right nutrients critical for their growth. Kids- often reluctant when it comes to cooked or raw vegetables- love soups.
  • And the biggest advantage? You can make soup from almost any vegetable or meat and that too, in a matter of minutes.
