About Ester-C Vitamin C/Bioflavonoids 550mg

In most animals, the water soluble nutrient, ascorbic acid, is synthesised from glucose. In humans a genetic lesion prevents us from making it and diet is the sole source of this vitamin. As a cofactor for many enzyme systems, ascorbic acid is involved in the synthesis of collagen, carnitine, endocrine hormones, and neurotransmitters. Many of the symptoms of the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy can be attributed to weakened collagen structures, including bruising, muscle weakness, gum deterioration, and poor wound healing. Vitamin C as Ester C is known to be a potent immune stimulating nutrient. It has been shown to inhibit viral replication and may reduce the severity of the common cold. A recent study of one hundred and sixty-eight volunteers were randomised to receive a placebo or a vitamin C supplement, two tablets daily, over a 60-day period. The results showed that vitamin C supplement may prevent the common cold and shorten the duration of symptoms.
