Who knew? The all-natural, probably-already-in-your-pantry cure for the nagging cough: chocolate!

 

Purewow recently reported that cocoa can help suppress a dry or sticky cough faster than several over-the-counter medicines. This is all backed up with research by head of cardiovascular and respiratory studies of the University of Hull, Professor Alyn Morice, plus studies from the Imperial College of London. According to the study conducted at the Imperial College of London, cocoa has an alkaloid that is better at suppressing cough than codeine, an opiate used in painkillers.

 

While we wait for more research, we'll gladly try this cure.
