This absolutely blows my mind today! Did you know that chocolate, yes chocolate, is better to relieve your annoying cough than cold medicine? According to the New York Post, that is true!
"Professor Alyn Morice, head of cardiovascular and respiratory studies at the University of Hull in Yorkshire, England, and a founding member of the International Society for the Study of Cough, says that “chocolate can calm coughs.”
According to their study, they found that there is something in cocoa "better at suppressing a cough than codeine."
"The second is that cocoa contains an alkaloid substance called theobromine, which has proved to be quite promising in studies looking at suppressing coughs.”
Did you even know there was a chocolate medicine called Unicough? I might have to try it!
This makes me want to stock on some chocolate and have it around if I start coughing just to test the theory out for myself! Yet, I am hoping I don't start coughing!
