'Laugh Juice' In Short Supply As Fad Sweeps Thailand
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:31:09 PM »
Laughing Juice who for, The drink's manufacturers will laugh all the way to the bank. They say it causes people to laugh uncontrollably. Just the job for them crusty old farang farts in Korat, down some you might get the giggles  :evilgrin I'll stick with me nice cuppa T. fanks very much. But i'm sure if it gets popular it will be banned, get off that sidewalk. He! He!

‘Laugh Juice’ in Short Supply as Fad Sweeps Thailand

 I was halfway through the first bottle when I caught myself staring at a particular spot on my monitor, having abandoned whatever task I’d been working on. Still, I downed the rest of the bottle, and that’s when I noticed my heartbeat slow.

I yawned, but decided against a midday Tuesday nap.

Was it my imagination? No way could a bottled drink from 7-Eleven – presumably FDA approved – could have such a bodily effect. I waited for the weird heart arrhythmia to wear off, and I drank the second bottle.

“Seriously, I feel like my heart is beating in a weird chill way,” I messaged my mildly concerned colleagues, before curling up for that cat nap.

This was my experience as a guinea pig for the “Relaxing Calm Sappe Beauti Drink,” the latest fad to sweep Thailand since the weekend, when online reviews popped up swearing it causes people to laugh uncontrollably.

Two bottles and some time later, a smile did break out across my face, but whether from the absurdity of the situation or the juice, I can’t be sure.

While some remain unconvinced the lavender- and lychee-flavored white grape juice drink could induce any sort of reaction, others report widely varying symptoms of sleepiness, relaxation, alertness and – of course – the giggles.

“I bought it because they said it would improve my mood. It’s true! I laughed at whatever joke people threw at me. I also became more awake. It’s great for work,” @Frvkprp tweeted.

On Wednesday, it was hard to find the stuff on shelves, as people continued sharing their hilarious reactions under hashtag #SevenReview.

The supposed giggle water contains 20 milligrams of chamomile, 20 milligrams of lemon balm, 5 milligrams of lavender, but the active ingredient is clearly the 10 milligrams of amino acid L-Theanine listed on the bottle. Although L-Theanine is a naturally occurring, relaxing substance found in tea. A cup of black tea may contain 20 milligrams of it, and green tea approximately 8 milligrams.

In other words, the drink is potentially as relaxing as a cup of tea with a nice blend of relaxing chamomile and lavender.

The admin of the Sappe Beauti Drink Facebook page responded to an inquiry to assert that L-Theanine “affects the nervous system and can induce relaxation, decrease stress and balance emotions.”

According to, Theanine “may also have effects on the cardiovascular system and play a preventative role in cancer; however, limited clinical information is available to support these claims.”

Were that not enough to assuage fears, the 35-calorie Relaxing Calm Sappe Beauti Drink also won a Healthier Choice seal by public health officials.

Another example of people being naive and gullible. I'll bet if I made a drink that claims to make Thai men's penises larger, they'd buy it like hotcakes. Get a bunch of folks to tweet about it in order to draw attention.

People are flocking to Ai Kasae village in Si Sakhon district to fetch black water from a small pool on a nearby mountain, believing it is sacred and has properties that can cure all disease.

Photos of the big black puddle have been shared on Facebook and other social media, spreading the rumour the water has magical power.

According to the people of Ban Ai Kasae, black water collected from the puddle and taken home had turned crystal clear overnight.

It was also rumoured that doctors had taken samples of the water for testing, and found it to be as clean as ordinary water.

The rumour says the water is a panacea for all diseases. It is said that a man made blind by a disease regained his sight after washing his face with the water from Ai Kasae mountain.

This story led to people from other localities heading for Ban Ai Kasae to get their own supply of the "magical black water", villagers said.

Annoyed by the mounting rumour, the residents have asked authorities to come to their village and collect samples of the water for examination, to explain why the water in that puddle is black and whether it is a cure-all as rumoured.

Before you go running off for a sip of the magic water it has been reported by it could be contaminated with feces :-[  health officials tested the water and found out the pond is actually contaminated with feces

Water from ‘sacred pond’ believed to cure illness actually contaminated with feces, say officials

Following the recent trend of locals in the southernmost Narathiwat province drinking water from a “sacred pond” that they believed cured illness, health officials tested the water and found out the pond is actually contaminated with feces.

Instead of being a magic cure-all, provincial health officials said yesterday that the black water will actually cause stomach flu.

Officials took action after rumors spread among residents that water from the pond, located in Sri Sakorn district, cured a man’s blindness and that drinking the water can make sickness go away, according to Prachachat.

The health officials will talk with the religious and community leaders in the area to create an understanding and encourage residents to drink sanitary water, MThai reported.
