Emergen-C

emergen-CI always heard the hype of Emergen-C on travel and airline message boards but never tried it.  I have sample Airborne before so I needed to see what this stuff was about.

The single serve powder comes in a 0.3oz tear open packet that you add to 4-6 oz of water.  I have heard people add it to a 20 oz water bottle ect… I guess as long as you drink all the powder your in good shape!  For testing purposes I added the powder to 6 oz of water and gave it a stir!

Tangerine is the flavor I have but once you add it to water it looks more like lemonade.  They claim its a  “Flavored Fizzy Drink Mix” but there isn’t much fizz at all… NOTHING like an alka-seltzer.  Once you take a sip there is a faint tangerine flavor but nothing overpowering and no aftertaste.

They claim 24 nutrients w/ antioxidants, electrolytes and 7 B vitamins. 1 pack gives you 1,667% of your daily Vitamin C allowance!!

There is no caffeine or other stimulants so all the energy or boost you get is from the vitamins ect.  It’s more of feel good kind of drink IMO, if your draggin ass, it won’t hurt to take but it’s sure not gonna give you all the boost you need.

I rank this right up there with Airborne, so grab a pack and try to stay healthy this winter!
