What is Ester-C and how does it differ from ordinary Vitamin C?
When Vitamin C is metabolised in the body, it breaks down into secondary compounds called metabolites. Scientific studies show that Threonic Acid, one of these metabolites, is responsible for the differences between ordinary Vitamin C and Ester-C, including its high bioavailability and its ability to provide a full 24 hours of immune support, compared with the 2 hours of ordinary Vitamin C.
Why is Ester-C described as “stomachfriendly”?
Ordinary Vitamin C is acidic (its scientific name is “ascorbic acid”), which means that it may cause gastro-intestinal irritation in some people. The unique water-based process that Ester-C undergoes, however, makes it non-acidic. This means that it can be gentler on the stomach than ordinary Vitamin C.
What are Citrus Bioflavonoids, and why does this product contain them?
Bioflavonoids are a family of compounds found in plants, which can have a wide range of health benefits. The Citrus Bioflavonoids in Nutra-Life Ester-C 1500mg + Bioflavonoids help to increase the absorption and effect of the Vitamin C, and provide extra antioxidant activity. They also help to maintain strong, healthy capillary walls.
Why is Vitamin D3 important for a healthy immune system?
Vitamin D3 is an essential fat-soluble vitamin produced in the body when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D3 plays an important role in activating special immune cells called T-cells and helps to support overall immunity. Low levels of vitamin D3 can lead to infection.
