What is Ester-C® and how does it help my immunity?
Ester-C® 1000mg plus Bioflavonoids is a high strength vitamin C formula for protection agaisnt a weakened immunity. The addition of bioflavonoids is essential for the processing of vitamin C within the body.
What makes Nutra-Life Ester-C® different to other vitamin C products?
When vitamin C is metabolised (processed) in the body, it is broken down into secondary compounds (metabolites). Scientific studies show that the natural vitamin C metabolites found in Ester-C® cause vitamin C to be absorbed into the bloodstream twice as fast compared to ordinary vitamin C (ascorbic acid). It is these natural metabolites that make Ester-C® different to other vitamin C supplements. It also provides full 24 hour immune support compared to normal vitamin C, which is usually excreted after 2 hours.
What is vitamin C and its role in the body?
Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant vitamin and one of life’s most important nutrients. Humans are unable to make their own vitamin C and the body does not store vitamin C for long periods of time, so it needs to be supplied in the diet each day.
One of vitamin C’s major roles in the body is in the production and maintenance of collagen, which is needed for the formation of connective tissue. Connective tissue provides structure and support to many organs in the body and is found in skin, blood vessels, bone, teeth, tendons, cartilage and ligaments.
Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, helping to defend cells against the harmful effects of free radicals produced during stress, smoking, injury, infection, anxiety and pollution and from our own metabolism.
What are some common signs of Vitamin C deficiency?
The classic deficiency state is ‘scurvy’. Other common deficiency signs include brittle hair and nails, bleeding gums, broken capillaries, easy bruising, lowered resistance to infection and slow wound healing.
