3. Increase your energy
If you’re all out of energy and in need of a quick blast of sugar to get over that 4pm slump.
Of course, most doctors would recommend snacking on a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit for a more controlled release of sugar into your system, but sometimes you just need a rush to get you going – regardless of the inevitable sugar crash 30-60 minutes later.
4. Stop nausea
There is much speculation on this front, but many people swear by a glass of flat coke when it comes to settling an upset stomach and eradicating nausea.
While the jury is out on whether the drink is actually capable of curing a nasty bout of diarrhoea or sickness, what is agreed upon is the fact the sugar content in it will make you feel better – for a while at least.
