Coughs are the worst! They’re irritating, sound horrible and always happen at the most inconvenient times – in the middle of the night, during yoga class or in a meeting. Don’t even get me started on how horrible it feels trying to hold a cough in.
Anyway, this may come as a shock to you but you can actually get relief from coughing by eating *drum roll* CHOCOLATE!
That’s right, you read that correctly. According to Professor Alyn Morice, a founding member of the International Society for the Study of Cough, “chocolate can calm coughs” and in fact it does it better than the tradition lemon and honey concoction and even codeine!
This claim is based on the results of multiple studies including a recent European study of over-the-counter cough medicine (ROCOCO).
