Ester-C : Actively different Vitamin C

Ester-CA Calcium Ascorbate-Threonate is a patented, EU-approved, form of Vitamin C created through a unique water based production process, which neutralizes ascorbic acid to create calcium ascorbate and the metabolites of vitamin C. This advanced formulation, is gentle on the stomach and better retained than normal vitamin C. Ester-C Calcium Ascorbate-Threonate is the only form of vitamin C, with research validating retention in white blood cells. The presence of key metabolites such as threonate has been shown to be responsible for this increased level and retention of Vitamin C by the cells.

Is It True Public Health Advocacy... Or Is It Fear Mongering And Fads?

A classical definition of "public health" describes it as the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting physical and mental health, sanitation, personal hygiene, control of infection, and organization of health services.
