Just wondering if anyone has started using this powdered Vitamin C 1000mg product with multi-B vitamins, antioxidants? If so, do you think it is a sound health/nutritious source, or just another sales marketing product to make money off of people?

I use to take Vitamin C 500mg tablets and it did ward off colds, etc. I'm curious about this powdered fizz product that you add to water or juice before drinking.

My doctor warned me about carbonation drinks and seltzers (which is what you are making with this product), so I have not tried it. I have used the chewables, though.

I have tried this and it is nothing like a soda/seltzer carbonation drink. The word "fizz" shouldn't even have been used in the description of Emergen-C.

Thanks for your response though; much appreciated

My Dr also said no carbonated drinks.  also i think emergen- c has a lot of sugar in it doesn't it?  Do they have a sugar free version?

No, it doesn't have much sugar. It's not carbonated like a soda is, even though it mentions the word "fizz". I have added it to watered down fruit juice...it's nothing like soda fizz at all.

I don't know about a sugar-free version, but the amount of sugar in it is very little.

Yes, I was told too no soda/carbonated drinks and it's true. But, like I said, this is nothing like a soda "fizz"/carbonation.

Thanks for your comments people

I use it all the time but only the no sugar versions. Lite Emergen C . I typically add stevia. Sugar is sugar. I try to avoid any sugar added when lite options are available. 4 gr of sugars =1 tsp.

I haven't tried the Lite Emergen-C, but will check into it. Thanks for your input ; much appreciated!

I just ordered off of The Vitamin Shoppe online, as they are on sale for $7.19 per box!! Great deal with free shipping.
