Due to its acidity, vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, may cause slight gastric upset in those with very sensitive stomachs. As patient compliance is always an important consideration of ours, we include Ester-C® in our range of vitamin C products as it is non-acidic (a neutral pH like distilled water) and hence gentle on the stomach. Formula
Evidence suggests that Ester-C® is also more bioavailable than ordinary vitamin C, producing higher vitamin C levels inside cells and furthermore, it appears to stay in the body for longer as less is excreted in the urine.
Each 650mg Ester- C® tablet provides 500mg of vitamin C.
