In brief: Mostly myth

Any proposed benefit is more myth than real.
Any supposed immune benefit is diluted too much by other food intake to matter. It is a source of some liquid/protein/carbohydrates/fat and various elements.It does not trigger improved health/vigor/hormonal balance any better than a standard balanced diet.
