Esterfied Vitamin C is a unique form of buffered Vitamin C with metabolites. Metabolites are compounds derived from nutrients that are normally created in the body. Research has demonstrated that this combination of non-acidic Vitamin C with metabolites is well absorbed and retained in blood cells and tissues. We have further enhanced this superior product with the synergistic blend of Bioflavonoids, Acerola, Rose Hips, and Rutin. Vitamin C has been found to be beneficial for a whole host of health related maladies. Vitamin C is vital for healthy vessels, ligaments, tendons and bones. The nutrient also participates in the production of norephinephrine, a chemical that makes it possible for your nerve cells to transmit information. In addition, vitamin C is an antioxidant, a substance that rids your body of disease-causing molecules known as free radicals. You need a consistent supply of antioxidants such as vitamin C because free radicals are constantly forming as a byproduct of digestion and exposure to toxins. Since esterified C stays in your body, it might be more efficient at protecting you from free radicals than regular water-soluble vitamin C.
In a March 1989 article in "Better Nutrition," Professor Anthony J. Verlangieri, Ph.D., explains that esterified vitamin C is fat-soluble, while the standard vitamin, also called ascorbic acid, is not. Regular vitamin C is water-soluble, which means that the amount you ingest in excess of what your body needs at the moment gets flushed in your urine. Because esterified C is fat-soluble, it stays stored in your body's fatty tissues, providing extended health benefits. Esterified vitamin C is attached to palmitic acid, a fatty acid, which makes the nutrient fat-soluble. Vitamin C ester is also known as ascorbyl palmitate, a name that combines ascorbic acid and palmitic acid. Use Esterfied Vitamin C every day to maximize the benefits!
