Hereof, why do we drink Sprite when sick?
The Claim: Drinking Flat Soda Can Ease an Upset Stomach. It is not often that a soft drink is seen as medicinal. The quick and popular remedy — usually in the form of cola, ginger ale or clear sodas — is said to help settle the stomach with its slight fizz and replenish fluids and glucose lost by vomiting and diarrhea.
Additionally, is it good to drink 7up when sick? Most of us just think of 7UP as a tasty drink or maybe even a secret ingredient for tender cakes and sparkling punches, but Mom saw more. Sure, drinking clear soda or ginger ale might help an upset stomach, but it doesn't have any healing properties when it comes to the common cold.
Also question is, is Sprite good for sore throats?
Cough drops or throat sprays may help your sore throat. Sometimes gargling with warm salt water helps. Be sure to rest and to drink lots of water or other clear liquids, such as Sprite or 7-Up. Don't drink drinks that have caffeine in them (coffee, tea, colas or other sodas).
Can you drink soda when you have a cold?
Staying hydrated helps your immune system fight sickness. It can also help loosen mucus and replace fluids you lose from blowing your nose. Keep a healthy supply of drinks right at your desk. But avoid coffee, caffeinated sodas, and energy drinks.
