It’s cold and flu season, and your immune system is working overtime to keep you in top shape. Most people know that vitamin C plays a vital role in immunity, thanks to its powerful antioxidant effects, and also aids in the maintenance of healthy tissues including bones, gums and teeth. But sustaining adequate levels of this important nutrient is not as easy as it seems.
Vitamin C is not naturally produced in the human body, and must be consumed on a daily basis to ensure sufficient levels. Compounding this need is the fact that as a water-soluble nutrient, vitamin C can’t be stored in the body and is easily eliminated. Taking a daily supplement can help deliver the consistent amounts of vitamin C needed for strong immune health. But when it comes to C, not all supplements are created equal.
Ester-C® is a patented calcium ascorbate made using a chemical-free process. The result is a non-acidic form of vitamin C that is gentle on the stomach and less likely to cause any of the digestive issues associated with regular vitamin C. In addition, only Ester-C® has active vitamin C metabolites, which intensify its absorption and enhance its retention for up to 24 hours in the white blood cells of the immune system.
