Black Chicken Soup for Cough
With Singapore’s rainy season averaging at about half a year, cough days are a little bit hard to fight shy of. Good thing Traditional Chinese Medicine are abundant of natural remedies that are best for restoring our health. All thanks to our rich culinary culture, recipes passed down by generations not only satisfy our craving bellies but also help us cure common ailments.
Unknown to many in this generation, one of the most recommended TCM herbal soups back in the days is the black chicken soup. It’s flavourful, nutritious, and accessible here at Ser Seng. More popular now for its distinct colour, you’ll be surprised how beneficial black chicken soup is for cough.
What makes black chicken herbal soup the best natural remedy for cough?
1. It’s tasty.
One of the best things about Chinese herbal soup recipes is that every bowl is full of flavours. For everyone—from picky-eating toddlers to expectant moms—black chicken soup is a tastier way to soothe an ailment as compared to over-the-counter medicine options.

This classic recovery soup contains a different kind of comfort like no other. The warmth it provides and the flavours it exudes adds up to its soothing powers. Each sip will restore one’s energy, helping you feel better sooner.

It not only soothes coughs and colds, but it’s also packed with so much nutrients. Studies have shown that a black chicken is rich in antioxidants, particularly carnosine. This is known to play a role in treating numerous complications of diabetes as well as improving muscle strength.

It is a superfood that is good for overall immunity.
