Frequently asked questions about Nutralife Ester C, with Vitamin D3 and Echinacea
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 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.
*Threonic Acid is standardised in Ester-C® as Calcium Threonate.
Q Why is Ester-C® described as “stomach friendly”?
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.
Q Why is Vitamin D3 important for a healthy immune system?
A 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.
