Emergen-C – The Answer to Getting Sick During Tech Week

orange1.jpgI always seem to get sick during tech week (aka “hell week”) before a show. Last show I did the sound tech hooked me up with Emergen-C and it brought me back up to speed within 24 hours. So now I just take it during tech week as a precaution.

The manufacturer is Alacer Corp, you can visit the Alacer Corp. Website for more information on Emergen-C. Alacer Corp. was founded in 1972 by Jay Patrick

From their website: “Super Orange Emergen-C fizzes in water to furnish 1,000 mg of Vitamin C with 32 different mineral complexes plus B Vitamins. Sweetened with Fructose for Quick Energy with Staying Power.”

The sound tech told me Emergen-C is the best kept secret of the theatre world, so let’s not let it be a secret anymore.

ABOUT VITAMIN C
Since Vitamin C is an acid (ascorbic acid) which can irritate the kidneys, bladder and intestines, side effects associated with Vitamin C intake in large doses include heartburn, nausea, flatulence and diarrhea. Researchers have found that ascorbic acid was really just an intermediary form of the vitamin and that in the form of mineral ascorbates it could provide all of the health benefits with none of the side effects. Mineral ascorbates are produced naturally by most animals (but not humans), yet when consumed regularly by humans serve as excellent transporters of Vitamin C to the over 70 trillion cells in the body. Mineral ascorbates have additional benefits, including increased energy, improved vision and reduced susceptibility to the common cold.

  • I have an advertising idea. If you will contact me, and provide assurance of a small gratuity, I would like to share it with you. The potential sales increase is to double sales in 12-24 months. If i may suggest a small gratuity only based on year over year performance increases. Just upon the increases, not on the past, this is about the future! Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,

    Jim

  • I’m sorry – this is a “solicitation free” website because it’s a personal blog. If I like something, I say it – and if I don’t like something I usually refrain, but sometimes say it also.
