Doctor reveals chocolate is a better cure for your cough than cough syrup



When you feel like you’re coughing up a lung, don’t reach for a bottle of Robitussin, reach for a bar of chocolate instead!

According to Professor/Doctor Alyn Morice, having a bar of ‘milk chocolate’ is way BETTER for a cough than over-the-counter cough medicine.


He told MailOnline: “Chocolate can calm coughs. I know that might sound like something out of Mary Poppins, but as an independent clinician who has spent years researching the mechanism of cough, I can assure you the evidence is actually as solid a bar of Fruit and Nut.”

Researchers found the results in a new study suggest new medicine that contains cocoa is better than cough syrup. Patients in this study who took the chocolate-based medicine improved their symptoms quicker than patients who took cough medicine that didn’t have cocoa as an ingredient.


 Chocolate’s “demulcent properties” forms a coating on your throat’s nerve endings, suppressing your urge to cough. Which is also why honey, lemon and other sugary syrups can help you too.


Sounds good to me!
