In brief: Chicken soup & zinc

Chicken soup has been used for treating common colds for centuries.
It may really help. The heat, fluid, and salt may help you fight the infection. People who take vitamin c regularly seem to have slightly shorter colds and milder symptoms. Taking vitamin c after your have a cold doesn't seem to be helpful. Zinc supplements taken within 24 hours of the onset for at least 5 days may be helpful.
