Got a winter cough that won’t seen to go away? You’ve tried cough syrup, and lozenges, and still no better? Have you snacked on a bar yet?
The University of Hull says chocolate may be a better cure for coughs than traditional cough syrup. A recent study revealed that patients, who took a chocolate-based medicine, saw significant improvements in only two days.
Professor Alyn Morice says chocolate can have a calming effect on the throat. “The coating effect explains why honey and lemon and other sugary syrups can help, but I think there is something more going on with chocolate.”
