To provide potent immune-system support against allergies, colds, and flu.
Vitamin C in its commonest form-ascorbic acid-can cause gassiness, bloating, and diarrhea. Ester-C® is a specially processed form of calcium ascorbate, which is less likely to cause gastric discomfort. In a study, 50 volunteers received 1000 mg per day of either Ester-C® or ascorbic acid for three days, and then switched for three days. Thirty percent fewer gastric symptoms occurred when participants took Ester-C®.
Ascorbic acid passes out of the body quickly in urine, so little of it is absorbed. One study showed that 24 hours after supplementation with Ester-C®, the white blood cells of subjects who had taken Ester-C® had absorbed more Vitamin C than those of subjects who had taken regular ascorbic acid. Another study showed that calcium ascorbate is better absorbed than another form of Vitamin C called calcium acetate.
