Ester-C Vitamin C capsules - high-dose plus natural bioflavonoids
Vitamin C is most commonly known for boosting the immune system, preventing colds and reduce inflammation. However, it is also involved in the build-up of the collagen structure and supports strong connective tissue, beautiful skin and strong bones.
Due to its properties as a strong antioxidant, Vitamin C also protects the heart and blood vessels, improves iron absorption and ensures that vitamin E can work longer in the body.
Ester-C is a unique, patented compound of vitamin C in the form of calcium ascorbate threonate, manufactured via a water-based process.
Ester-C is a pH-neutral and stomach-friendly vitamin C that is absorbed more quickly than regular vitamin C, remaining in the body for up to 24 hours.
L-threonate is an active metabolic by-product of vitamin C which can increase the absorption (bio-availability) of vitamin C.
Vitality Ester C also contains the 4 powerful bioflavonoids quercetin, OPC grape kernel extract, rutin and green tea. These active plant substances often occur together with vitamin C in fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, they are either partially destroyed during preparation, or drastically reduced through peeling.
Bioflavonoids promote the absorption of vitamin C, thereby increasing its efficiency in the body. At the same time, the substances themselves have many positive health benefits.
Quercetin is a natural yellow-colored plant pigment. It is evident that the combination of quercetin and vitamin C provides excellent protection against cell damage and inflammation, which are risk factors of various diseases.
At the same time, quercetin supports the beneficial properties of vitamin C, promoting its bio-availability and regeneration in the body.
Quercetin also enhances the new formation of mitochondria in the brain cells, in the immune system, and in the muscle tissue, which is responsible for energy production.
The OPC grape seed extract contained in Ester-C is obtained from French grapes and is standardized to an OPC content of 40%. No solvents are used in the extraction of the grape seed extract, only alcohol, and water. The alcohol evapourates when the extract dries.
Grape extract is also rich in polyphenols, including OPC (Oligomeric proanthocyanidins). These are powerful antioxidants, which reduce the damage to the body caused by free radicals.
This flavonoid is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body's cells against the destructive effects of free radicals.
At the same time, rutin strengthens blood vessels, reduces capillary permeability, reduces varicose veins and has a positive effect on venous diseases and circulatory disorders.
The decaffeinated green tea extract provides health-promoting plant ingredients, so-called catechins, including EGCG (epigallochatechin epigallocatechin -3-gallate), an effective antioxidant that has been extensively scientifically researched.
These powerful antioxidants are known to support heart and brain health. The antioxidant activity of EGCG is around 25-100 times higher than that of vitamin C and vitamin E.
The intake of vitamin C is especially important for those people who are not taking enough vitamin C with their diet, or who have an increased demand. These include:
Servings per day
Take one capsule daily with a meal.
If you have a higher vitamin C requirement, you can also take several capsules throughout a day after a meal.
Can also be taken by people who are sensitive to citrus fruits.
Note: Bioflavonoids such as rutin, hesperidin and green tea extract may increase the effect of blood thinners. People who take more than the recommended dosage of 1 capsule Ester-C per day should therefore check the blood clotting parameters regularly.
