While Mary Poppins might have a great way to make cough syrup easier to stomach-??SOT-’’??“A spoonful of sugar help the medicine go down.”????VO-chocolate fall??It turns out that a little bit of chocolate might be all you need to fight that cold.

????VO-chocolate/UoH logo??Professor Alyn Morice, Head of Respiratory Medicine and the Centre for Cardiovascular & Metabolic Research at the University of Hull told the Daily Mail:????VO-chocolate/cold??Sucking on some chocolate might work better than codeine syrup for soothing your throat when you have a cold.

????VO-slow mo eat ??According to Morice, when you eat chocolate, as it melts it creates a sticky coating on your throat.????VO-throat(nerves)??Which he says protects the nerve endings that cause you to cough when you’re sick.????VO-cocoa??Not only that, but a study from the Imperial College in London found that an ingredient in cocoa called theobromine-????VO-cough syrup??May actually work better and with fewer side effects than codeine, the current king of cough suppressants.

????VO-choc/??And when you also consider a recent review of several studies found chocolate’s naturally high levels of antioxidants may lower cholesterol, prevent cognitive decline and reduce cardiovascular problems-????VO-pharmacy/candy??Maybe we can skip the pharmacy altogether and hit up the candy aisle instead.??
