It is made using a proprietary, water based process, which results in a pH neutral product that contains naturally occuring metabolites. These metabolites activate the vitamin C molecules making it easier for the body to transport from cell to cell. This formula contains bioflavonoids extract to help boost the protective action in our body. Vitamin C helps to reduce the severity and duration of colds.
Vitamin C plays a very crucial role in the maintenance of our immune system. It is involved in the proper functioning of white blood cells and antibodies.
Vitamin C is an important and powerful antioxidant, along with vitamin A and vitamin E. Antioxidants help block the damage to our body caused by free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally inside our body when food is transformed into energy. Lifestyle factors such as smoking cigarettes and alcohol consumption can also cause free radical damage to our body. Free radicals are also by products of environmental factors such as sunlight exposure, pollution. The build up of free radicals over time may be responsible for the aging process and suppressing the body's immune system. Free radical damage has also been linked to a range of diseases such as heart diseases, cancer and arthritis.
Smoking cigarettes can lower the amount of vitamin C in the body. Therefore it is especially important for smokers to take vitamin C supplements. Vitamin C can help to reduce free radical damage from smoking.
Estrogen containing oral contraceptive pills are also known to lower vitamin C level in the body.
Vitamin C is important in the production of collagen, an important protein in skin, cartillage, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. Vitamin C is also essential in wound healing.
Signs of vitamin C deficiency include fatigue, depression, impaired wound healing, gum disease, rough, dry scaly skin, splitting hair.

What is Ester-C® and how does it differ from ordinary Vitamin C?
When Vitamin C is metabolised in the body, it breaks down into secondary compounds called metabolites. Scientific studies show that Threonic Acid*, one of these metabolites, is responsible for the differences between ordinary Vitamin C and Ester-C®, including:
- its high bioavailability
- its ability to provide a full 24 hours of immune support, compared with the 2 hours of ordinary Vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid may increase the absorption of aluminium. In kidney failure doses should be separated by at least 2 hours from doses of aluminium-containing preparations.
If taking propranolol, a medication used for high blood pressure and migraine prevention, separate doses by at least 2 hours. Ascorbic acid may decrease the absorption and efficacy of propranolol.
