Vitamin C has been one of the most researched and documented vitamins in history. It has been found to be involved, somehow, in every physiological process in the body. This critical vitamin is something that our bodies cannot manufacture and must be obtained in the diet. Ironically, it has been found that all other mammals (apart from some higher primates, fruit bats and guinea pigs) create their own Vitamin C, in large amounts.
Vitamin C is an extremely important antioxidant that works synergistically with other antioxidants like Vitamin E and beta-carotene. This is important to know if one wants to minimise any oxidative damage.
Ester C helps maintain general body resistance to mild infections and respiratory ailments, and may assist with tissue repair and wound healing.
During the unique natural process used to make Ester C, an important natural metabolite of Vitamin C, Threonic acid is formed. Biochemically identical to the form produced in the body during metabolism of Vitamin C in the liver, Calcium Threonate found in Ester C has special benefits which enhance Vitamin C's activity.
Ester C is readily and rapidly absorbed into the blood stream and enters the white blood cells where its main actions take place.
