Nutra-Life Ester-C & Echinacea Chewable tablets combine Ester-C, a patented form of vitamin C, with echinacea in a convenient pleasant-tasting chewable tablet. Ester-C is absorbed into the blood stream faster and is held in the body longer than ordinary Vitamin C, improving its effectiveness. Nutra-Life Ester-C differs from other vitamin C’s and is patented and scientifically supported. Ester-C is non-acidic and has been proven to be “tooth friendly” a benefit for people who prefer chewable vitamin C tablets.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant vitamin and one of life’s most important nutrients. Unlike other mammals, humans are unable to make their own vitamin C. The body does not store vitamin C for long periods of time, so it needs to be supplied in the diet each day.

Ester-C® is absorbed twice as fast compared with ordinary vitamin C1,2 (ascorbic acid), increasing its effectiveness and activity
One of vitamin C’s major roles in the body is in the synthesis and maintenance of collagen, an important structural protein needed for the formation of connective tissue. Connective tissue provides structure and support to many organs in the body and is found in skin, blood vessels, bone, teeth, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. This is especially evident following burns (including sunburn), injury or surgery, where vitamin C’s powerful wound healing activity is vital for repair and recovery.
Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, where it helps to defend the cells against the harmful effects of free radicals produced during stress, smoking, injury, infection, anxiety and pollution and from our own metabolism. The demands for vitamin C increase during these situations and supplementation is often required to maintain sufficient levels.
Vitamin C’s antioxidant power helps protect heart health and is used by the body to support healthy capillaries and arterial walls. It also enhances the absorption of Iron, and assists the role of Iron in forming red blood cells (RBCs), making it useful in helping to prevent iron deficiency anaemia. Large concentrations of vitamin C are found in the adrenal glands, which are important for managing the body’s stress response. In fact, during stress, vitamin C reserves are used up more rapidly than normal and supplementation is often recommended to individuals who suffer from chronic stress.
