Cafeïne and theobromine
As mentioned before, cola nut contains caffeine (about three times as much as coffee). This invigorating substance provides more alertness, energy and accelerates the heart rate. Cola nut also contains theobromine, this substance is also found in cocoa (the name theobromine comes from the Greek name for cocoa, which means 'food of the gods').

This alkaloid relaxes the bronchi in the lungs and has an influence on the vagus nerve, which is the 'wandering nerve' that runs through the body. It has been shown to work better than codeine in suppressing a cough.
