Sprite is a soft drink usually colorless. It is a lemon and lime flavored drink.
Sprite is not sold in Nigeria alone, it is the world's leading lemon-lime flavored soft drink that is sold in more than 190 countries of the world.
If you've tasted Sprite before, you would agree with me that it isn't all about quenching one's thirst, it also gives enough satisfaction and relief.
Sprite has some health benefits which makes it a unique soft drink that most people crave for. Before I talk about the health benefits, let's see the ingredients.
Sprite, like most other non-cola sodas, doesn't contain caffeine, the main ingredients are water, corn syrup, natural lemon and lime flavours, citric acid, sodium citrate and sodium benzoate.
Consuming too much caffeine, according to experts, can result in feeling anxious, nervous or jittery. As such, since Sprite doesn't contain caffeine, it provides a boost of energy.
Sprite can also break down acetaldehyde, a metabolite of ethanol, making it an effective hangover-curing drink.
Finally, Sprite, like every other soft drinks that contain enough sugar shouldn't be taken excessively to avoid complicated health issues.
