Most people know the large benefits provided by a good dose of Vitamin C to mitigate the symptoms of colds, flu and infections, but few know that vitamin C fulfils many other important functions in the body.
One of the most important is healing, an adequate consumption of vitamin C enhances skin healing, this is due to the existing connection between this nutrient and the production of collagen (structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and bones).
Due to its powerful antioxidant effect, vitamin C is one of the most important allies in the fight against premature aging and cancer prevention, because antioxidants help to prevent the formation of free radicals. Additionally it protects Vitamin A and Vitamin E from oxidation, as well as some compound of the B complex (thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid and pantothenic acid).
Ester-C Plus by Solgar is a special Vitamin C formula made with calcium ascorbate, a unique formula, obtained in a patented process in which vitamin c suffers structural changes similar to those that happen naturally in the organism. As a result a formula is obtained that has a neutral pH and contains calcium ascorbate and natural metabolites of vitamin, which within the body activate the vitamin C molecules making its transport to the inside of the cell (absorption) much easier.
Ester-C Plus increases cellular levels of vitamin C throughout the day, providing immune protection 24 hours a day. In addition, thanks to its neutral pH, it does not produce the digestive discomfort that some people that are sensitive to acidic food can suffer.
Solgar's Ester-C Plus also supplies acerola, citrus flavonoid complex, rutin and rosehips.
