Vitamin C Ester C Information

Vitamin C corrects the world's oldest known nutritional deficiency, the disease scurvy. Vitamin C is not manufactured in the body. Humans must depend on diet or nutritional supplements as the source of this vitamin. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that is stored in many tissues throughout the body, but the adrenal glands contain the highest concentration. Because of its acid content, physicians recommend taking a buffered form of vitamin C when taking it in huge doses. However, Ester-C is a patented form of Vitamin C that is pH-balanced and time-released. It differs from other Vitamin C's in that it will not give you an acid stomach and it will give you the benefits of Vitamin C over a longer period of time. It is also more bioavailable than other Vitamin C's. It is a patented form of ascorbyl palmitate.
