It’s unlikely that taking Emergen-C during pregnancy will cause you or your baby any harm, but it’s also likely unnecessary to use the supplement.

Pregnancy aside, you can often get many of the nutrients in this flavored powder through the foods you consume. Trying to eat more citrus fruits in addition to strawberries, kiwis, bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, or even potatoes can be an easy way to get just as much vitamin C in your diet from a natural food source.

Since vitamin C is a nutrient that is particularly easy to obtain through fruits and vegetables, you can reap the benefits of Emergen-C without the additives by making more conscious food choices.
