Reason #8 - Cough Relief
One study found that chocolate quieted coughs almost as well as codeine, thanks to the theobromine it contains. This chemical, responsible for chocolate's feel-good effect, may suppress activity in a part of the brain called the vagus nerve.
Maria Belvisi, a professor of respiratory pharmacology at the National Heart and Lung Institute in London, says, "It had none of the negative side effects." Codeine makes most people feel sleepy and dull—and doesn't taste anything like fine chocolate.
