The Organic Pharmacy Vitamin C Ester 60 capsules
Esterified vitamin C (Ester-C) is a remarkably effective form of vitamin C, especially for those suffering from chronic illness. It is created by having the vitamin C react with a necessary mineral such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium.
The result is a form of vitamin C which is non-acidic and that contains vitamin C metabolites identical to those found in the body. Ester-C enters the bloodstream and tissues four times faster than any other forms of vitamin C and also remains longer in the body cells. Levels of Ester C in white blood cells are much higher than any other forms of vitamin C, hence its immune system boosting properties.
You may be deficient in Vitamin C is you have the following symptoms: swollen and bleeding gums, wounds that don’t heal, easy bruising, depression.
Studies have shown that Vitamin C can reduce the length and severity of colds. It also promotes collagen production, health of skin, blood vessels, cells, bones, cartilages, teeth and gums. Supplementing with Vitamin C is especially important during the periods of heightened infection risk.
