Chinese scientists say Sprite can cure hangover

Posted: Updated:

Finally, scientists have found a cure for a heavy night of drinking.

It seems Sprite can cure a hangover.

A team of Chinese scientists researched 57different drinks. They tested everything from herbal teas, to coffee and soda.

The results of the study find that lemon and lime are the best at recovering from drinking alcohol.

It's all due to an enzyme released by the liver that breaks-down the alcohol into chemicals that cause headaches and nausea.

Researchers say Sprite helped decrease the amount of time those enzymes stayed in the body.
