Chocolate Is Better Than Cough Medicine?!

We are still in the middle of cold-and-flu season. So try this hack if you’re trying to fight off a cough…

According to a new study, Chocolate might be a better cough suppressant than actual cough medicine!

Researchers in England took over 160 people with coughs and either gave them cough medicine with codeine or a chocolate-based medicine called “Rococo.” Two days later, the people who used the chocolatey stuff reported a “significant improvement” in their symptoms compared to the people who took normal cough medicine.

A previous study found it might have to do with a certain alkaloid in chocolate that works as a cough suppressant.

So, if you are having a terrible cough just eat lots and lots of chocolate!
