High potency presentation of this highly absorbable vitamin C. 

Vitamin C plays an essential role in numerous areas of human health. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones, cartilage, skin, gums and teeth. Vitamin C also enhances iron absorption and normal energy-yielding metabolism. Vitamin C aids in the maintenance of the immune system including during and after intense physical exercise. Vitamin C contributes to normal psychological function, the functioning of the nervous system and contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This ‘oxidative stress’ appears to be a major factor in many human diseases.

One negative side–effect of continued large doses of usual forms of vitamin C is gastrointestinal discomfort and diarrhoea. These effects are due in large part to the acidity of ascorbic acid itself. As a mineral ascorbate, Ester-C circumvents many of these problems because it has a neutral pH. At the same time, this new process introduces an important metabolite of vitamin C so it is present along with ascorbate when the supplement is taken.



Vitamin C is extremely safe in most individuals. Claims that high-dose vitamin C regimens may lead to rebound scurvy, erythrocyte haemolysis, and vitamin B12 deficiency do not withstand scientific scrutiny.

Vitamin C supplementation may have adverse effects in thalassemia major, an iron-overload disorder.

High dose vitamin C regimens may increase urinary excretion of oxalic and uric acid although epidemiological investigations do not support an association between vitamin C supplementation and kidney stones.


Nausea, diarrhoea, and abdominal cramping are observed in a small percentage of subjects consuming over 3g vitamin C per day.

Some medicines can be affected by vitamin C. Women on the contraceptive mini-pill should not take excessively large doses of vitamin C at the same time of day as this may reduce the pill’s effectiveness.

Upper safe level: 2000mg (long term usage); 3000mg (short term usage).

Vitamin C has been consumed in doses exceeding the European RDA (60mg per day) for many years without evidence of harm.

Non-heme (vegetarian) iron absorption from a single meal is enhanced 2-3 fold in the presence of 25mg- 75mg vitamin C. Vitamin C potentiates vitamin E activity in cells by regenerating alpha-tocopherol from its oxidised derivative. Vitamin C has also been shown to raise glutathione concentrations by 50 per cent with 500mg of vitamin C per day.

During times of chemical, emotional, psychological, or physiological stress, vitamin C is excreted at a significantly increased rate. Thus a higher intake of vitamin C is required for immune protection when the body is under stress.
