Got a Cold? Feel Better--No Medicine Head Required

  • Oct 24, 2009
  • by
For colds or everyday use, Emergen-C is a fizzy drink mix-in with a mega-dose of vitamin C.  Available at Kroger and Walgreens, it costs $12-$13 US / box in the reviewer's area. 

+Simple to use; just mix and drink
+No medicine head (no antihistamines or decongestants)
+No prescription needed
+Tastes less bitter than cold syrup

-Taste not as palatable as most drink mix-ins formulated for flavor
-Costs more than some cold remedies

Reviewer's Comment: Using Emergen-C, I actually felt better at the end of the day than worse, as I usually do with a cold.

What did you think of this review?

Or... if you rather take a similar product in a fizzy tablet (think Tums) form, you can also try "Airbourne". I have both in my cupboard.

Did you know that Emergen-C is more …

About this topic


Emer'gen-C is a dietary supplement drink mix which is sold as an energy booster. It contains more than 1600% of the USDA recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, 416% of the recommended vitamin B12 daily value, and 500% of the recommended vitamin B6 value based on a 2000 calorie diet. Some flavors also add calcium or lycopene.

Emer'gen-C is used by some consumers as an attempt to fight off or avoid the common cold. But the belief that large doses of vitamin C can be effective against colds is not held by the medical establishment and the bulk of scientific trials conducted on it
