Nobody waits for any special occasion to eat chocolate, and now you got one more healthy reason to eat chocolate. An ingredient found in raw chocolate may provide relief from constant coughing. Raw chocolate is the unprocessed form of chocolate. It contains a chemical called the obromine that can help your body fight off the symptoms of the cough and cold.
Two studies confirm “Chocolate is a Better Cure for Cough than Codeine”
Coughing is a medical condition that affects most people at some point of their lives. However, there is no effective treatment available for the same. Persistent coughing may not be harmful but it does affect the quality of your life. A study presented at the winter meetings of British Thoracic Society in 2012 found that theobromine has a positive effect on chronic cough. Another study conducted at the National Heart and Lung Institute in London showed that theobromine blocked the action of sensory nerves in people suffering from cough & cold. When the sensory nerves are blocked, the cough reflex will be stopped in a common cold. Researchers also found that the chocolate chemical is 33% more effective than codeine for treating chronic cough.
A latest study reveals…
A new European study on the over-the-counter cough remedies also suggested the health benefits of chocolate in those with a cold. The latest study has found that patients, who took a new medicine containing the chocolate chemical, showed significant improvements in their cough symptoms and sleeplessness within two days. European researchers also claim that slowly eating a piece of dark chocolate can relieve inflammation or irritation by forming a coat over the nerve endings that cause the urge to cough.
