Sprite, 7up, and Ginger Ale are all good for the flu. They help with nausea and also help your stomach settle by neutralizing some of the acid in your stomach

More answers:7-UP and Ginger Ale are the best drinks for a tummy upset and my mom gave it to me when I was a kid. The trick is to NOT drink it cold, pour some in a glass LET STAND for at least 15 - 20 minutes until the pop goes flat and then drink it.

I dont know about 7UP and Sprite since they seem to have a lot of other ingredients but the best thing is Ginger Ale and its best to stick to the Canada Dry brand but here's the trick. Have it at room temperature and it has to be slightly flat. Too much carbonation and it will upset your stomach even more. The slightly flat has less carbonation that helps ease the stomach; might induce burping though if you have a lot of gas in stomach but the sick stomach is not from gas. It's when you eat foods that are tainted or if you have a virus. There are two things at play in gingerale. first there is SLIGHT carbonation that makes you feel better and second Ginger Ale though it may not list it on label on ingredients it contains GINGER which is medically approved to help with upset stomaches.

Actually, All three of those are good choices, and if it is gas, its best if you drink it carbonated, and ice cold, that way you can burp up the extra gas in your stomach, also the slower you drink it the less gas the pop will give you that way you don't have to burp up any more gas than necessary.

Actually, GINGER-ALE is without doubt a much better choice than anything else--one of the few herbs that has been scientifically proven to do what traditional folk medicine says it does is ginger, and ginger settles the stomach. If flat and drunk slowly, it is easier to keep down than water. Burping when your stomach is sick can induce vomiting, so you definitely don't want that. Ginger ale with real ginger in it, at a moderate temperature (not ice-cold), and flat, taken slowly in small sips--that's best.

Why is Sprite bad for you?

it is not bad for you. it is probably highon sugars or sodium, but it does not have caffeine. It is good for you when you throw up or when your stomach hurts. - Katharine Good when you are sick does not mean it is good for you. Sprite is my favorite. The best beverage of all is plain water. Sprite may be low on caffeine, a magor problem with health, but it contains high fructose corn syrup, and all kinds of preservatives. I agree, Sprite does settle the stomach, but the majoratiy of the drinkers don't know about this. I hope someday every one will enjoy the taste of water. And then some Sprite on the side thanks that's great

What does Sprite do for you when you are sick?

My Sis-in-Law were thinking about this and both of our parents used to give us Sprite when we were sick I have tried to find answers on why and no luck thus far I was always told to drink sprite when you're sick because the carbonation helps calm your stomach. Other sodas would work to but sprite has more carbonation than most of the other ones. I also just learned that sprite also has electrolytes in it which we need to stay hydrated. We tend to lose some of those electrolytes when we vomit or have diarrhea, so sprite and other electrolyte filled drinks helps put them back in our body preventing us from becoming dehydrated. Apparently, tap water also has electrolytes in it.
