There’s a reason that Ester-C® is known as “The Better Vitamin C™”. Actually, there are several. Studies show that it’s absorbed nearly twice as fast as regular Vitamin C. And that while ordinary Vitamin C lasts only 2-3 hours in your body, Ester-C® keeps supporting your immune system for 24 hours after you take it. Plus, Ester-C® is completely non-acidic, so it’s gentler on your stomach.

Vitamin C is known as “the immunity vitamin”. It helps your body to build up resistance to all kinds of common infections; and can help to reduce your recovery time. Your white blood cells (part of your immune system) need Vitamin C to function normally and help you fight off bacterial / viral infections. Your adrenal glands use up Vitamin C when they respond to stressful situations (e.g. sudden temperature changes, change of seasons, life stresses, etc). Your body uses Vitamin C to make collagen – a protein that helps to form healthy skin, ligaments, tendons, bones and teeth. That’s why your body needs more Vitamin C when you’re healing from surgery and injury. Vitamin C helps your body to absorb Iron – a mineral you need for healthy red blood cells, which help to reduce fatigue and support immunity. Finally, Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect your cells against free radical damage.
Ester-C® is produced from Calcium Ascorbate, using a patented, water-based process. One of the metabolites (the compounds that form when your body breaks down a nutrient) of Vitamin C is Threonic Acid. Threonic Acid is standardised in Ester-C® as Calcium threonate. Researchers have extensively studied Calcium threonate, and discovered that it is responsible for many of the differences between Ester-C® and standard Vitamin C. These differences include Ester-C® being absorbed twice as fast, and lasting up to 24 hours in your body.
