Ester-C® is Calcium Ascorbate, a unique, exclusive form of vitamin C. It is made using a proprietary, water-based manufacturing process that results in a pH neutral product containing naturally occurring vitamin C metabolites. These metabolites activate the vitamin C molecules, making it easier for the body to transport them from cell to cell for numerous health benefits.**

One clinical study showed that Ester-C® increased vitamin C levels in the body.¹ White blood cell levels of Vitamin C were elevated in subjects receiving Ester-C® when measured after initial dose. The presence of key metabolites such as threonate may contribute to this increased level and retention of vitamin C by the cells.

  

Is Ester-C® Gentle on My Stomach?

Some people find that their stomach becomes irritated when taking regular forms of vitamin C. But Ester-C's® unique metabolite is non-acidic and stomach-friendly.*

In one published study, individuals sensitive to acidic foods were given one gram of vitamin C as ascorbic acid or as Ester-C.® Subjects rated Ester-C® as tolerated "very good" significantly more than ascorbic acid.² So for anyone who has difficulty tolerating vitamin C, it's comforting to know that Ester-C® is non-acidic and gentle on the stomach.*
