Recently I've been having a strange kind of headache when I've touched certain parts of my scalp. I figured it was a bit concerning, but since it only really affected me when I brushed my hair I mostly didn't think about it. Then I started getting pretty bad full on headaches a few days ago, so I went to the doctor, who prescribed me some anti-epileptic, mood-stabilising medication. Which makes sense.
What does this have to do with Lucozade? Well, these pills have made me feel not that great, quite nauseous in fact. So what was my first thought when figuring out how to stop myself feeling ill? Grab a bottle of Lucozade of course.
Lucozade Energy is an energy drink, but it's not like those other energy drinks that rely on intense names and vast amounts of caffeine. Lucozade comes in many flavours. There's an "Original" flavour that I guess tastes like glucose, it's not that great. The orange flavour, though, is amazing. Not only does it taste good, it seems to have awesome healing properties when I drink it. At the age of 16 I found that drinking Orange Fanta used to settle my stomach, but in recent years I've learnt that a bottle of Lucozade can simultaneously relieve stomach aches, headaches and nausea. I don't know if it's the dose of glucose and caffeine or whether it's purely psychosomatic, but Lucozade is my go to drink for when my tummy's not feeling good. I'm not sure if anyone else feels that way, but I'd like to find out.
Of course, there are other flavours to consider, all of them do me good, just not as much as orange. They still taste awesome though. Apple is maybe a bit too sour, but the latest additions of tropical, cherry and blackcurrant are all really nice. So if you're looking for a quick boost, or a chance to see if Lucozade has magical healing properties for anyone besides me, pick one up, I doubt you'll regret it.
My rating: 5/5
