Ester C with Bioflavonoids
Vitamin C combines high-potency vitamin C with a standardized, full-spectrum, citrus bioflavonoid complex. Both vitamin C and bioflavonoids have been extensively researched for their roles in supporting antioxidant and immune function. In addition, research indicates that vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, neurotransmitters, and carnitine. Bioflavonoids appear to support healthy metabolism and cognition by functioning as cell-signaling agents.*
This product is a synergistic combination of a non-acidic form of vitamin C and several different types of bioflavonoids. These nutrients work together to support capillary strength, connective tissue structure, and immune function, making this formula a good choice for those who are susceptible to hemorrhoids, easy bruising or who wish to obtain the protective benefits of these antioxidants for the skin, joints, heart, and immune system.
- Ester C® is a unique, patented non-acidic form of vitamin C that is gentle on the stomach. This patented process combines ascorbic acid with calcium forming a calcium ascorbate compound with vitamin C metabolites. Vitamin C is an important nutrient and antioxidant that plays a key role in many functions throughout the body. It helps protect against cellular damage, stimulates production of collagen important for healthy skin and joints, and supports heart and immune system function. Vitamin C is water-soluble and must be replenished every day.
- Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex contains specific types of bioflavonoid compounds that may protect blood vessels by strengthening capillary walls. Varicose veins, bruising and spider veins are signs that capillary integrity has been adversely affected. The ability of citrus bioflavonoids to help regulate inflammation can also be of benefit to tissues. Lastly, citrus bioflavonoids may protect vitamin C from oxidation, thereby helping to maintain adequate levels of vitamin C within cells.
- Rutin, a type of bioflavonoid commonly found in buckwheat, is added to boost the effectiveness of vitamin C. Much like the citrus bioflavonoid complex, studies show it can help strengthen capillaries and help tissues recover more quickly after injuries.
- Pycnogenol®, also known as pine bark extract, enhances the effectiveness of vitamin C and contributes its own unique benefits. Pycnogenol binds to collagen fibers, protecting them from free radical damage so that the natural elasticity of collagen in skin, joints, arteries, capillaries and other tissues is maintained.
This formula can be taken by anyone who wishes to increase their intake of vitamin C and natural plant-derived bioflavonoid antioxidants to support capillary and connective tissue functions.
