Emergen C (Vitamin C) is a vitamin supplement used to treat and prevent vitamin C deficiency (scurvy). Emergen C contains vitamin C, as well as vitamin B and other important nutrients such as zinc and magnesium, as well as electrolytes and antioxidants. Together, these work to supplement the levels of these nutrients already in your body, boost your immune system, and help in energy production. Emergen C also has other important health benefits such as boosting immunity, improving tissue repair, and increasing bone strength, among others. Vitamin C occurs naturally in many foods, but supplementing these levels with a vitamin can have many positive side effects and reduce the risk of developing vitamin C deficiency. Each dose of Emergen C has 1000 mg of Vitamin C, which is equivalent to 10 oranges. It is also caffeine free, and made with natural flavours and no artificial sweeteners.
Canadian Pharmacy King currently offers Emergen C manufactured by Pfizer in Canada, available in the Orange Flavour and in the dosage of 1000 mg/30 pkg.
Emergen-C is generally considered safe, but there may be side effects if you are taking it in high doses. Common side effects of overuse of Emergen C include heartburn, upset stomach, nausea, diarrhea, or stomach cramps.
You should not use Emergen C if you have ever had an allergic reaction to a vitamin C supplement. To make sure this medication is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had kidney disease or kidney stones, hereditary iron overload disorder (hemochromatosis), or if you smoke, as smoking can make vitamin C less effective. Your dose may need to be different during pregnancy or while you are breastfeeding. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
