Professor Alyn Morice from Hull University, an alleged cough expert claims that cocoa is actually BETTER for soothing coughs, more than any ingredient in a cough medicine. Now just to be clear, we’re saying chocolate is for the purpose of soothing the cough, not curing it.

According to an article in the Daily Mail, Morice referenced ROCOCO, the largest study done on counter-cough remedies up to date. A controlled experiment proved that medicine containing cocoa did much better in treating the patient.

And just to go into the bio of it, the physical properties of chocolate, aka that amazing yummy ooey gooey stickiness of chocolate coats the nerve endings in your throat, in turn, soothing your cough.

So, the next time you feel an itching in your throat, don’t hesitate to have a chocolate…or five

Hey! Don’t you want to get better?
