Douglas Laboratories Ester C Plus Product Information

Ester-C® Complex capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, contain a non-acidic, calcium ascorbate form of vitamin C combined with a potent citrus bioflavonoid complex. Ester-C® is a unique form of vitamin C that is created through a patented, water-based process that combines vitamin C and calcium. Ester-C® is non-acidic and should be well-tolerated by those who are sensitive to the acidic nature of ascorbic acid.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous biological functions. It is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of collagen fibers- lysyl hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases.

Citrus Bioflavonoid are the white layer of citrus peels is especially rich in the bitter tasting flavanones hesperidin and naringin. Citrus juices, however, are low in bioflavonoids. Like most flavonoids, those from citrus are free radical scavenging antioxidants that work in synergy with vitamin C. Ester-C® Complex provides 100mg of a concentrated bioflavonoid complex containing 35mg hesperidin and 14 mg naringin. This extract is essentially free of citric acid to which some people may be sensitive.
