What is Ester-C®?
Ester-C® from American Health® is a unique, non- acidic form of Vitamin C that doesn’t wash through your system quickly like traditional Vitamin C. Patented Ester-C® was specifically developed to stay in your system and be retained in your white blood cells, an important part of your immune system.*1 Because it is pH-neutral and non-acidic, Ester-C® is gentle on the stomach, all day and all night, even for those with acid sensitivity. You get active immune system support and powerful antioxidant protection in a single, 1,000 mg dose... once a day.*
Ester-C® Is Different
Patented and Clinically Studied
Ester-C® is created using a proprietary, chemical-free and water based manufacturing process that yields a unique non-acidic form of Vitamin C, rich in naturally occurring Vitamin C metabolites. Metabolites make it easier for Vitamin C molecules to transfer from cell to cell. They help enhance the absorption of Vitamin C by your white blood cells...an important part of your immune system. Ester-C®’s high concentration of these metabolites not only make it easier for Vitamin C molecules to “transport” through your system, they greatly enhance the retention of Vitamin C levels in these immune cells.1
Non-Acidic and Gentle on the Stomach
To demonstrate Ester-C®'s stomach-friendly properties, individuals sensitive to acidic foods were given comparative levels of either Vitamin C as ascorbic acid or of Vitamin C as Ester-C®. At the end of the study, it was reported that Ester-C® was a well- tolerated form of Vitamin C.2 In addition, Ester-C® was significantly tolerated “as very good” more frequently than ascorbic acid.
Why Take Ester-C®?
Ester-C® functions biologically like other forms of Vitamin C, providing strong antioxidant support against free radical damage, healthy skin, joint and vision support, cardiovascular wellness and maintenance of the immune system.* However, Ester-C® offers so much more... quick absorption by the body and retention in the immune system.* Plus, since it is non-acidic, Ester-C® is gentle on the digestive system, even when taken at high doses.*
