It's always preferable to make your own stocks.

Chicken stockIt's always preferable to make your own stocks as you can boost the flavour through the use of herbs and control the amount of salt that goes in. Start with just a pinch, then taste and add another small pinch if you feel it needs more.

Stock cubes, concentrates and ready-made stocks are notoriously high in salt, which can be bad for blood pressure. If you are using these, try to buy the reduced-salt versions.
