Chocolate as an Antitussive

Categories: Food, Health, and Science.

According to a 2004 article in New Scientist, theobromine maybe a stronger cough suppressant than codeine.

Theobromine is an alkaloid primarily found in dark chocolate.

Edit: The article did not actually say it was better than Codeine. I read that somewhere else–I forget where.

Edit 2: Anyone in the Estacado Systems office this week would tell you I was in need of such. I tried some–and it worked for a while, anyway. (Thanks, Brian!)
