American Health Ester-C delivers advanced antioxidant protection, remaining active in the immune system for up to 24 hours!
24-Hour Immune Support
A recent clinical study showed that Ester-C increased vitamin C levels in the body for up to 24 hours. White blood cell levels of Vitamin C were elevated in subjects receiving Ester-C when measured 24 hours after initial dose. The presence of key metabolites such as threonate have been shown to be responsible for this increased level and retention of Vitamin C by the cells. No other patented vitamin C brand can make this claim!
Naturally-Occurring Metabolites For Quick Absorption
During the Ester-C patented manufacturing process, vitamin C metabolites are created. These naturally-occurring metabolites activate the vitamin C molecules in Ester-C, making it easier and quicker for the body to transport them from cell to cell for numerous health benefits.
Non-Acidic and Gentle on the Stomach
In a recently published study, individuals sensitive to acidic foods were given 1 gram of vitamin C as ascorbic acid or as Ester-C. Subjects reported heartburn “significantly more frequent and severe after intake of ascorbic acid” and subjects rated Ester-C as tolerated “very good” significantly more than ascorbic acid. So for anyone who has difficulty tolerating vitamin C, it is comforting to know that Ester-C has been clinically shown to be non-acidic and gentle on the stomach.
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 24-hour retention in the immune system. Plus, since it is non-acidic, Ester-C is gentler on the digestive system, even when taken at high doses.
The immune system, which is made up of a complex set of body systems working together, is our first line of defense against millions of microorganisms that invade these systems daily. Stress, pollution, aging, poor nutrition, lack of exercise or sleep also play a role in the effectiveness of the body’s immune response – its ability to protect against harmful microorganisms. These organisms are responsible for a host of health conditions and concerns. A well-balanced immune system seeks invading microorganisms and destroys them. Although it may be challenging to keep our immune health strong - not only during the winter season, but throughout the year – American Health offers high-quality nutritional choices to support optimum immune system function.
