Clever marketing or vitamin C goodness?

I don't know if it's clever marketing or the power of vitamin C but I love this stuff. The packet of magical orange powder makes me think of Tang, which naturally makes me laugh (Tang is so ghetto.)

Anyhow, you take the magical orange powder (also comes in other magical colors and flavors too) put it in a glass and add water.  This vitamin C filled beverage gives you an energy boost and wards off nasty germs that can make you sick. Did you know that Emergen-C is more popular than chicken noodle soup when it comes to common cold cures?  I didn't know that either, I heard it somewhere ... I think.

I always have this stuff in the house, at my desk, and sometimes in my purse.  If you want an extra punch of nutrition, add it to orange juice. Whatever you do, do not add it to soda. I made that idiot mistake last year.  I know, what was I thinking?  Clearly I wasn't because I made a huge mess doing that at the office.

Unfortunately, you forgot the most useful function of Emergen-C: HANGOVER PREVENTION (or cure, though that's less effective). I swear, drink some of this before you pass out after a long night of drinking and in the morning, you're golden. If you forget to drink it until the morning, the bubbles may still soothe your nausea and you'll still get the energy boost, but you may as well try to avoid the symptoms all together.

About this topic

Wiki

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
