When you are suffering from a cough crisis, do you open your fridge and eat any chocolate? It is true that your love for chocolate makes you eat lots but in fact, it helps infighting cough.

Chocolate bars contain theobromine, a chemical found in cocoa and has an important role as chemical that fights cough and is as effective as codeine existing in cough drugs which relieves from coughing and makes the person sleepy.  

Theobromine comforts from cough but does not make you feel relaxed and sleepy.

It is preferable to choose dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate because it contains a bigger quantity of theobromine and comforts more from cough.

In case the person suffering from cough suffers from high acidity levels in the stomach and esophagus, it is recommended that this person does not consume any chocolate because it will increase his cough and cause him phagopyrism.
