American Health®, a leading manufacturer of the American Health® and Ester-C® brands, brings you the highest quality nutritional products created to help you maintain optimum health and wellness.* Even when health and wellness were not part of the mainstream lifestyle as they are today, we understood the importance of taking extra steps to ensure your body gets the nutritional support needed to function at its best.*
Today, American Health® remains one of the most trusted and respected innovators of specialty supplements in the natural health food industry. Our commitment to product quality remains steadfast with our market leading probiotics and digestive enzymes, as well as with the patented and clinically researched vitamin C formula, Ester-C®.
Ester-C® is Calcium Ascorbate, a unique, exclusive form of vitamin C. It is made using a proprietary, water-based manufacturing process that results in a pH neutral product containing naturally occurring vitamin C metabolites. These metabolites activate the vitamin C molecules, making it easier for the body to transport them from cell to cell for numerous health benefits.**
One clinical study showed that Ester-C® increased vitamin C levels in the body.¹ White blood cell levels of Vitamin C were elevated in subjects receiving Ester-C® when measured after initial dose. The presence of key metabolites such as threonate may contribute to this increased level and retention of vitamin C by the cells.
Some people find that their stomach becomes irritated when taking regular forms of vitamin C. But Ester-C's® unique metabolite is non-acidic and stomach-friendly*.
In one published study, individuals sensitive to acidic foods were given one gram of vitamin C as ascorbic acid or as Ester-C.® Subjects rated Ester-C® as tolerated "very good" significantly more than ascorbic acid.² So for anyone who has difficulty tolerating vitamin C, it's comforting to know that Ester-C® is non-acidic and gentle on the stomach*.
Ester-C® is a unique, exclusive form of Vitamin C designed to stay in your white blood cells for 24-hours, providing you with around-the-clock immune system support. After all, you don't want your immune system unsupported when you need it most*. Take Ester-C® every day, just once a day, and your immune system will "C" the difference!*
