A new study has found that eating chocolate is BETTER for curing coughs than cough syrup itself.
Professor Alyn Morice of the University of Hull and a founding member of the International Society for the Study of Cough found and support this claim.
Morice says that the results of the largest real-world study of an over-the-counter cough remedy ever undertaken in Europe have just come in.
The study even found that that medicine which contains cocoa is better than the standard stuff.
The study involved a head-to-head comparison of 163 patients who reported a "significant improvement" in their symptoms within two days of taking the chocolate-based medicine.
According to Prof Morice, this new chocolate medicine, Unicough, has been shown to reduce cough frequency and sleep disruption within 48 hours.
This is amazing! I will gladly take chocolate as a remedy for a cough over cough syrup anytime! What are your thoughts on this? Leave us your comments.
