I always viewed it more as finding something that worked for me personally. I don't think that any of these flavors is in some way changing body chemistry, but that for different people - and possibly different for every one of their pregnancies - there are different flavors and/or textures that help. With Jamie's pregnancy I ate a lot of dry crackers, for instance, and drank Lucozade (or the nearest American equivalent). With Katie I sucked Preggie Drops which are citrus flavored boiled sweets. I couldn't get enough of them while I was pregnant but I found them strangely unpalatable after she was born. For me it was a case of trying different things people recommended until I found something that helped me. I never expected there to be something that worked for everyone.
