Emer'gen-C is primarily an antioxidant used to prevent infections, bruising, colds & flu, sinusitis, sore throats, blood clots, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, physical and mental stress, weak immune system, cholesterol levels, liver toxicity and collagen formation with added vitamins, minerals and electrolytes. Vitamin C is essential for the formation and maintenance of connective tissue, is a powerful antioxidant, and it is involved in normal immune function. Today, Alacer Corp. produces the most advanced line of food supplements in the world and is now established world leader in Vitamin C technology.
I've had a few samples of these packs and I don't like the taste. It seems very chalky to me. I drink it for the vitamin C, but it is not pleasant. They need to change the formula and make it into water drops instead of powder.
If you hate water this stuff is good for you. I like one of these once in a while but not all the time. Sometimes i am in a juice mood and this does the trick.
I first received mine as a free sample and loved the taste and known benefits, i have a really low immune system, so this stuff is essential for me.1,000 mg of vitamin C and other immune supporting antioxidants zinc and manganese, 7 B vitamins to enhance energy naturally, and electrolytes to replenish post-workout!* It is a great vitamin drink that should be implemented into everybodys lifestyle.
the store was out of my regular effervescent vitamin so I looked at this. I thought it was just vitamin c. I was delighted to see that it ALSO has the B vitamins I get in the other drink. Also magnesium and a few other trace elements. They also had a tropical flavour. I thought I would give it a try. I am so pleased that i did. It gave me energy and tasted great. I love the packets which make it portable. I always keep some in my purse so I can just add them to water when I need a boost. Definitely a keeper. I will be trying the different flavours too.
I got a free sample of this Emergen-C Drink Mix about a year ago and have been hooked on it ever since! It doesn't taste too bad, a bit drab but not offensive at all. When I feel my body getting tired or feel the first signs of a cold I will drink one and whatever I feel like I am coming down with just seems to disappear. It gives me a good boost of energy and makes me feel a lot better! It is actually quite an expensive drink but in my opinion the benefits out weigh the cost factor. I do recommend it for anyone who needs that extra boost of Vitamin C it certainly won't hurt anything!
First time I had one was in Hair School when a couple of us girls were hungover lol
I had no idea what it was when someone said the name. I thought they meant "Emergency", I was like, OMG you need to go to the emergency?
Anyway, they have tons of vit c, effervescent helps your tummy, anti oxidants. It took my hangover right away. I buy them usually just by the individual packet at 69 cents each. Good to have in your bag or cupboard. If you are feeling low on energy or just a little under the weather, mix up one of these in a tall glass of water and you will feel better.
Also, make sure you don't chug it back. drink is slowly.
I really like the taste of this and have used it in the past as a mix for vodka, but it is a bit expensive and vitamin C is always absorbed more effectively when consumed from natural food sources. Considering that just a medium-sized bell pepper contains over 250% of your daily recommended vit. C, supplements should be used as a last resort.
I got it as a free sample, a regular drink mix, nothing special. As someone mentioned its overpriced. Just eat few raw peppers much cheaper and natural
These are convenient to take while traveling (as long as drinking water is available) since they are individually packaged in small pouches. The taste is nice and I feel like they do help prevent you from getting sick. However, they seem to be very expensive compared to other Vitamin C drink mix.
I tried this after receiving a few samples and I thought the taste was good. It is a refreshing way to get your Vitamin C. It dissolved nicely. I do find it overpriced and will probably stick to chewable Vitamin C for that reason.
