Can a juice box solve your hangover woes? Some people think a new study says yes. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found a new and healthy reason to drink more apple juice. followed 650 Toronto children who were suffering the effects of a stomach bug. These symptoms included vomiting and dehydration.
The children in the study were randomly given either apple juice diluted with some water or an electrolyte-based beverage like Pedialyte. In the end, of the children who had the juice, 2.5% needed further IV rehydration, while 9% of those in the electrolyte group needed further rehydration.
While this offers a healthy, more cost-effective option for helping kids suffering from stomach flus, there is also some thought that it could provide a tasty and cost-effective way for adults to beat back hangovers. Terrible mornings after are caused, after all, primarily by dehydration.
