User Comments about Emergen-C
30 Nov 2016 I think Emergen-C causes GOUT, my Gout stopped since I stopped eating meats, Fish, Soda and Coffee, but lately GOUT Resurfaced in my left foot and even more painful and the only thing I could think of causing this is this Emergen-C since I drink it all the time at least twice a DAY

11 Mar 2013 I have been suffering from Pertussis(whooping cough) and read it helped. I tried it and I have to admit it really does help. I feel much better. I am still coughing, but my fits are now manageable. I really would tell anyone looking for relief to try it.

01 Mar 2011 I was in Florida, with a runny nose, and had just recovered from a cold, started taking emergen-c recommended by a friend, and it improved, now I am free of the runny nose, sore throat and cold symptoms.
