KSDK - Here's some important news if you decide to let loose during Wednesday's Cardinals game: grab a Sprite if you need a little post-excess morning pick-me-up. 

That's according to a group of Chinese scientists who tested 57 drinks and found that Sprite did the best at quelling alcohol's negative effect, according to the Telegraph. 

The article goes on to say that some brutal hangover symptoms, such as nausea and a headache, are thought to be caused by the process of the body breaking down alcohol. 

The key to alleviating the damage done by alcohol, the study says, is to get rid of a certain enzyme -- and Sprite, for some reason, speeds up that process. 

A professor at the University of Exeter told the Telegraph that the findings were inconclusive, and that more research was needed.
