Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that cannot be produced by the human body, making it necessary to consume sources of Vitamin C from foods or a dietary supplement. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and plays an important role in immune function, by helping white blood cells function more effectively. It is essential for the formation of collagen and is involved in protein metabolism. It is a vital component of connective tissue and promotes wound healing. Vitamin C presents anti-oxidative properties and can scavenge free radicals and reduce oxidative stress – this contributes to the prevention of certain cancers and cardiovascular disease.

As Ester-C® is buffered with calcium, this may increase the bioavailability of the ascorbic acid by slowing down the rate of absorption. It can provide a source of calcium and promotes the absorption of iron.  If you are watching your sodium intake and have a sensitive stomach, Ester-C® would be the preferred choice over our Sally-Ann Creed® Scorbi Cee or Super-Cee. Studies have shown that Ester-C® is more cost effective than ordinary ascorbic acid as it can recycle itself in the body, and the powerful bioflavonoids further assist in the uptake of vitamin C.

Conditions that might benefit from Vitamin C supplementation are high blood pressure, joint pain, and high cholesterol.  Vitamin C is often added to skin products to assist with dryness, acne, or aging.  It is advisable to take supplemental Vitamin C if you use cigarette products or drink alcohol.
