Emergency Emergen-C

So, just a quick plug here.

When I find something that seems effective or interesting I am generally pretty happy to share with others.  We do live in a world of potential abundance if we can temper that tendency to view things as scarce.

I’ve been sick over the last week which slowed up my time to write.. well my time to do everything.. as my amazing wife helped pick up the slack and help me get everything done even while recovering.  She and I are both pretty strong advocates of this amazing little drink packet, Emergen-C.  I was surprised when I was talking to my parents about it and they had never heard of it, but these little guys pack some punch.  Any time Suzy or I am feeling a little under the weather and feel there may be something creeping up on us, perhaps a cold, perhaps a scratchy throat, we usually down one of these.  They pack 1000mg of vitamin C in a dose and have a few other vitamins and minerals that have some pretty strong evidence suggesting that us humans recover quicker when they are in large supply.

Is it a placebo effect?  I cannot comment concretely on a study with an n=2, especially when we have each other’s feedback to feed off of!  In any case, I certainly feel like I shake things quicker and get back into my usual pace when I use them.  Additionally, considering that they kind of taste like a slightly tart fruit drink mix and cost only marginally more than typical drink mixes I feel like it is a worthy splurge.  Give them a try and if you do let me know in the comments what you think of them.  I’d love to increase the n-count on my “research”.

Grow Strong, Game On.
