Chinese researchers find the ULTIMATE hangover cure - and you probably have some in your fridge
Chinese researchers say they've discovered the ultimate hangover cure, and the good news is you probably already have it in your fridge. The researchers examined the effects of a number of different 'hangover cures' including herbal teas (they actually prolong hangovers) and found a surprising common beverage was the best at speeding up the enzyme that processes acetaldehyde, the substance that causes headaches and sluggishness associated with a hangover.
So what's the soda that you want in your fridge? Sprite! Known as Xue bi in China, the popular drink "was found to actually speed the enzyme’s work up. This means that Sprite could ease a hangover because it shortens the body's exposure to acetaldehyde." So have a can ready the next time you indulge in a little too much partying, and here's to no hangovers!
