Chocolate for a cough

by Barbara
(Mexico)

Hello Singers,

I just wanted to mention that some coughs can be helped by drinking hot chocolate. There is something in chocolate - theobromine - that is supposed to help persistent coughs.
Here is story that talked about this:

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/health/chocolate-could-be-key-curing-persistent-cough-799

"Chocolate could provide the key to tackling a persistent cough. Researchers are carrying out the final stages of clinical trials on a drug that contains theobromine, an ingredient in cocoa and chocolate."

Hope this helps someone out there!

Is eating Chocolate helpful?

I guess the question is - if you eat dark chocolate or drink hot chocolate, is that going to help with a cough? Just wondering about that.
