Japanese scientists have been hard at work finding out that lemon and lime Sprite is the best thing to drink on a hangover.

Sure, they could have been curing cancer or helping develop crop production in third world countries – but instead they were doing this. A little gratitude wouldn't go a miss now would it? Rude.

Researchers at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou tested 57 types of drink to see which one best helps the body metabolise alcohol, everything from herbal infusions, teas to carbonated beverages.

The results showed that Xue bi, a version of Sprite sold in China, as well as soda water were best at speeding up the process of burning off the alcohol, and reduced hangover effects by 65%.

The research, which has been published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Food and Function, interestingly shows that herbal teas on the other hand actually prologued hangovers. No good can come from being healthy.

A sausage sandwich, a litre of Irn Bru and some Nurofen usually does the trick for us. You?
