Bounty for the best solution

Provide a bounty for the best solution

Bounties attract serious brainpower to the challenge.

The idea is to create a drink that soothes the stomach and alleviates any other common cause of vomiting. One would use this drink after the stomach is completely empty and there is nothing to vomit anymore. That way the drink doesn't obstruct the body from clearing out any potential toxins that caused vomiting. The drink would be useful to stop excessive vomiting after it has served its purpose.

The drink should also include:
  • Electrolytes
  • multivitamins/minerals to replenish the loss
  • Ideally it would also include the essential amino acids and oils - if that doesn't cause more vomiting.
  • Something to protect the esophagus from stomach acid.

The flavor should be very mild. If the vomiting continues the liquid would at least feel pleasant when going out. It would serve as a lubricant. If the flavor is strong people will grow to hate it because they would associate it with vomiting.

Such a drink would be popular with party people to help with the hangover. That could be the primary market. It could be a pouch with powder that you add to a glass of water.

What could be some of the ingredients in such a drink?

Look and taste like water, possibly effervescent tablets or dissolvable powder, with a specified amount/ratio of water

People have learned to be more trusting of something labelled as a specific medicine when they want guaranteed results, something that they can buy from a pharmacy and particularly when they control the dosage and can see what they're putting into their drink, hence slightly opaque water-like liquid, or powdered mix or effervescent tablets might be ideal.

The more the branding is marketed as a medicine you can still buy off the shelf the more people will focus on its medical efficacy instead of its taste or other placebo effects, which is the goal here.

The mild taste of a lot of pills is subtly reassuring as it's not associated with food but with treatment and relief, which is what someone is looking for when they're feeling awful like that.
Ideally there shouldn't be a flavour when coming out so there's nothing to associate it with the act of vomiting.

Simple instructions such as "drink in small sips over the course of 30+ minutes" and easy details on how much water and how often per day can also be comforting to the person when they are in that situation just wanting to be taken care of and not make any extra calculations.

Also someone buying it in a hurry whether for themselves or for someone else might look for whatever looks like the safest and clearest instructions, grants maximum relief/healing and is least likely to have contraindications that they can purchase ASAP to alleviate the suffering, so if it can be bought off the shelf or requested at the counter that's a win for ease of access!

Traditionally, whenever someone can't stomach food we feed them tiny pieces of white bread with little sips of water. I've seen it work wonders. No smears or toppings on the bread, just plain white bread.
