Ester-C is the most patented Vitamin C brand in the world and, since its benefits are supported by science, you know you are giving your body the advanced immune support it shouldn't be without.
24-Hour Immune Support
A recent clinical study showed that Ester-C increased vitamin C levels in the body for up to 24 hours. White blood cell levels of Vitamin C were elevated in subjects receiving Ester-C when measured 24 hours after initial dose. The presence of key metabolites such as threonate have been shown to be responsible for this increased level and retention of Vitamin C by the cells. No other patented vitamin C brand can make this claim!
Naturally-Occurring Metabolites For Quick AbsorptionDuring the Ester-C patented manufacturing process, vitamin C metabolites are created. These naturally-occurring metabolites activate the vitamin C molecules in Ester-C, making it easier and quicker for the body to transport them from cell to cell for numerous health benefits.*
Non-Acidic and Gentle on the Stomach
In a recently published study, individuals sensitive to acidic foods were given 1 gram of vitamin C as ascorbic acid or as Ester-C. Subjects reported heartburn significantly more frequent and severe after intake of ascorbic acid and subjects rated Ester-C as tolerated very good significantly more than ascorbic acid. So for anyone who has difficulty tolerating vitamin C, it is comforting to know that Ester-C has been clinically shown to be non-acidic and gentle on the stomach.
Why Take Ester-C?
Ester-C functions biologically like other forms of Vitamin C, providing antioxidant protection against free radical damage, healthy skin, joint and vision support, cardiovascular wellness and maintenance of the immune system.* However, Ester-C offers so much more quick absorption by the body and 24-hour retention in the immune system.* Plus, since it is non-acidic, Ester-C is gentler on the digestive system, even when taken at high doses.*
