Thompson's Ester C 1000mg plus Bioflavonoids is a non-acid form of Vitamin C.
Humans unlike most animals cannot manufacture their own Vitamin C, so it must be replenished daily. The need for Vitamin C is increased during periods of stress, illness, rapid growth, pregnancy, strenuous physical activity, following surgery or other trauma, and in those who smoke tobacco or consume alcohol.
Thompson's Ester C 1000mg plus Bioflavonoids is a patented, non-acid form of Vitamin C which unlike other forms of Vitamin C, incorporates a number of special metabolites, including Calcium Threonate. This is biochemically identical to the form produced in the body during metabolism of Vitamin C in the liver. It is this metabolite that makes Ester C four times more bioavailable, as it stays in the body longer and is better utilised by cells and connective tissues than other forms of Vitamin C.
Several hours after taking Ester-C, the vitamin C concentration in the blood is twice as high as it would be after taking buffered or regular vitamin-C. In addition to higher quantities of Vitamin C in blood, the loss of this valuable nutrient via urine after taking Ester C is six times lower than after taking ordinary vitamin C.
Ester C is processed in purified water, not using harmful solvents. It is pH neutral and therefore very gentle on the stomach, making it ideal for those who take Vitamin C over a long time period or in higher doses. Bioflavonoids are natural compounds which assist the uptake of Vitamin C in the body further enhances this formulation. Bioflavonoids are anti-oxidants, which protect Vitamin C against oxidation and help prevent inflammations and allergies in the body; they prevent ruptures of blood vessels, and therefore reduce bruising and excessive menstrual bleeding.
Thompson's Ester C benefits the body in numerous ways, including protection from degenerative disease, immune-boosting to prevent colds and flu s, guarding against pollution, cigarette smoke and stress, enhancing wound repair, and alleviating hayfever and allergies.
