It’s filling: Think about drinking a lot of water. What happens next? You gotta urinate like crazy! Broth has the same rush except you are getting extra nutrients from the meat and vegetables in it. If you choose to drink straight broth, it can still be just as filling and delicious
It’s great for basic colds and sniffles: Broth could be beneficial, especially now that it is Spring time. So many people deal with allergies and colds due to the change in the weather. A broth would help ”burn” the cold or sniffles out of the system fairly easy. You may even start feeling better by the time you get to work!
Calms the digestive tract: Some people have digestive problems (i.e. Crohn’s Disease) and the smallest thing could send their stomach to do backflips. Soups help soothe the stomach, especially when it is warm. It is also therapeutic for some cultures are it allows the mind and body to operate more smoothly and helps destress tighten stomach muscles. Broth could also help people pass heavy stools.
