Ester C - 200 pellets
The Premium Vitamin C – - HIGHLY DOSED
Vitamin C is probably the best-known vitamin of all – but it is also the one that tends to be most underestimated. The majority of people associate vitamin C with winter and the need to support the immune system. And that is indeed true. But vitamin C also does more, much more. It is, for example, involved in some 15,000 metabolic processes. We have already described all the things this super-vitamin does for us in detail, and for this information, read here: Vitamin C 1000 mg - HIGHLY DOSED.
At this point, therefore, let us forego a detailed description of vitamin C and instead look more closely at the benefits of Ester C, which is known throughout the world. Ester C is a special form of vitamin C. It contains a blend of mineral ascorbate (acid-free) and vitamin C metabolites. Each of these two components fosters the effect of the other and enhances the absorption and usability of vitamin C.
The benefits of Ester C have been demonstrated in numerous trials and tests. As a result, the manufacturer, the firm of Intercal, has been awarded worldwide patent No. 4.822.816. Ester C® is absorbed via the gastrointestinal tract and transported to the cells very quickly. It has high bio-availability and enters the blood system two times faster.
The presence of the naturally occurring metabolites of vitamin C in Ester C® has been proven in intense studies by a group of chemists, nutritional scientists and pharmacologists. These metabolites are intermediate substances in the metabolism, of the kind that also occur in the body with the metabolisation of vitamin C. With the intake of conventional vitamin C products, however, it seems that the level of these important metabolites in the body can only be raised by taking very high doses of vitamin C. Ester C®, by contrast, already supplies these important metabolites in a sufficiently high concentration. And these metabolites - regardless of whether they are produced by the body itself or are taken in with a vitamin C supplement such as Ester C® - can influence the transport and utilisation of vitamin C.
Dr. Anthony Verlangieri, Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Mississippi, investigated how these metabolites and vitamin C influence each other in the body. His work showed that vitamin C metabolites - in particular threonate - are directly linked to elevated vitamin C concentrations in the blood. This threonate acts as an intracellular door opener, allowing the vitamin C to enter the cells fast and efficiently. This makes Ester C® the only vitamin C that is immediately available to the human body.
In a comparison of the cellular absorption of normal vitamin C and Ester C®, it was shown that Ester C® promotes the transport of vitamin C into the cells and so encourages a high concentration in the cells.
Unlike ascorbic acid, Ester C® has a neutral pH value and is therefore also well tolerated even by sensitive persons.
Our Ester-C product also contains citrus bioflavonoids and rosehip extract, both of which work synergetically with Ester C®.
Recommended consumption: Take 1 pellet daily with sufficient fluid. If you have difficulty swallowing the pellets on account of their size, they can also be divided in the middle and the two halves taken one after the other. This will have no negative effect on the delayed release of the vitamin C.
1 pellet contains: Vitamin C (made of Ester C®) – 1000 mg = 1250*, Citrus-bioflavonoids – 100 mg, rosehip extract– 25 mg, Camu Camu extract - 25 mg
* = % of the reference quantity (NRV) pursuant to the Food Information Regulation.
Information for diabetics: 1 pellet contains 0,03 bread unit.
Please note: Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a well-balanced and varied diet as well as a healthy life-style. „Ester-C®“ is a registered brand of „The Ester-C Company“.
Orthomolecular medicine: The orthomolekulare science – derived from the Greek word "ortho" (= right) and the Latin word "molekula" (= small measures / parts) - assumes from the beginning that the health of the person is influenced by a certain balance of micronutrients and macronutrients in the body. To keep this balance and to guarantee it, the focus of the orthomolecular medicine is to consume the “right particles” (nutrients) and dosage of the recommended diet.
