When it comes to a choice between chocolate or cough medicine, surely there’s no contest!
Because studies have shown that theobromine, the chemical content found in cocoa, is more effective than codeine at putting an end to a persistent cough.
And as cocoa has none of the side effects associated with standard drug treatments, it’s potentially a healthier remedy too.
Scientists are hopeful that further research could provide an opportunity for more natural treatments for the common cough, though it’s unlikely any will be as popular as chocolate!
