This time, we will introduce the most effective drink for hangover.
Effects of Herbal Infusion, Tea and Carbonated Beverage on Alcohol Dehydrogenase and Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Activities
According to this study, the most effective drink for hangover is carbonated water.
However, what is strange is why carbonated water is effective for hangovers.
Carbonated water is a drink that contains no ingredients other than carbonic acid.
But how does carbonated water help break down acetaldehyde, the cause of hangovers?
I did not understand well even after reading this paper, but if you have a hangover, it may be worth taking a drink.
By the way, sprites were included as drinks other than carbonated water.
Sprite seems to accelerate the decomposition of acetaldehyde.
This is great if it is true, but sprites contain plenty of sugar, so you don't want to drink that much.
From the viewpoint of carbohydrates, it is better to drink carbonated water than sprites.
According to this paper, carbonated water is twice as effective as sprites.
That's why there are still doubts, but it might be a good idea to drink carbonated water as a hangover measure.
