Chocolate as a Cough Remedy

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about the possibility of turning chocolate into a cough medicine.  As scientists finish their final stage of research it is looking as though a cure for persistent cough could be on the market within the next two years.  The main cocoa component used in this research is a chemical called theobromine.  It is believed that theobromine is thought to work by inhibiting the inappropriate firing of the vagus nerve.

Manfred Scheske, CEO of Consumer Health at SEEK said: "I am very excited to announce the progression for the late-stage development of BC1036, which has the potential to dramatically impact the treatment of persistent cough and could greatly benefit the quality of life of persistent cough sufferers."
