Frequently asked questions about Nutra-life Ester C
Q What is Ester-C® and how does it differ from ordinary Vitamin C?
A When Vitamin C is metabolised in the body, it breaks down into secondary compounds called metabolites. Scientific studies1,2 show that Threonic Acid*, one of these metabolites, is responsible for the differences between ordinary Vitamin C and Ester-C®, including its high bioavailability its ability to provide a full 24 hours of immune support, compared with the 2 hours of ordinary Vitamin C.
*Threonic Acid is standardised in Ester-C® as Calcium Threonate.
Q Why is Ester-C® described as “stomachfriendly”?
A 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.
