Great for a cough

If you have a cough that is hard to beat, then chocolate can help. Chocolate contains theobromine that helps reduce activity in a certain part of the brain known as vagus nerve– responsible for triggering coughing fits. If you are experiencing uncontrollable coughing, just pop in a chocolate.
