 Ester-C® (Calcium Ascorbate) is a unique, patented ascorbate complex bound with Calcium Carbonate. Naturally processed in purified water without the use of alcohol or acetone solvents. This makes Ester-C® a more readily available, readily absorbed form of Vitamin C. Ester-C®, a well-known anti-oxidant has been shown to aid in reducing joint cartilage degeneration and decrease susceptibility to infections. Ester-C® has up to 4X more metabolic activity than standard Vitamin-C (ascorbic Acid). Contains 28,375 mg Ester-C®/oz.

Benefits of Ester-C:

  • Stability – Ester-C® has a shelf life up to 5 years. Typical shelf life of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is 6months to 1 year depending on storage, as it is sensitive to heat, light and air.
  • Non Acidic – Ester-C® is non acidic like Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), so it’s gentler on the stomach.
  • Absorption – Studies indicate when the same levels of Ester-C® and Vitamin C were given, the Ester-C® absorbed twice as fast and indicated levels in tissues and blood to be up to 4 times greater then Vitamin C.

#INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

Ester-C® (calcium ascorbate) is a unique patented ascorbate complex bound with calcium carbonate. Ester- C® is naturally processed in purified water without the use of alcohol or acetone solvents. This makes Ester-C® a more readily available, readily absorbed form of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect the tissues of the body and also important in the production of connective tissues like tendons and ligaments.   Ester-C® has up to 4X more metabolic activity than standard vitamin C (ascorbic acid).

 

#FAQS

When do i need to supplement with Vitamin C?

MVP:  Horses, unlike humans, actually possess the enzyme required to produce Vitamin C. Even though the horse is capable of making Vitamin C in its body, there are many factors that can lead to its depletion. Healthy horses grazing on fresh forage should get sufficient Vitamin C through their diet. Many horses however do not have the opportunity to graze continuously and are involved in rigorous training programs, which can be stressful to the immune system. Therefore when it comes to supplementation, Vitamin C is recommended to support immune function and to support healthy connective tissue. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid has many functions in the body. The most important function of Vitamin C is its involvement in Collagen formation. Collagen is vital for healthy skin, joints and tissues, all of which are put under a lot of stress in the performance horse.  As a water-soluble antioxidant, Vitamin C can help keep the horse healthy in times of stress. As an antioxidant the vitamin works to fight against free radicals by neutralizing them and therefore rendering them non-harmful. Vitamin C also plays a role in the immune system of the horse. This vitamin helps to enhance how the immune system works by stimulating the formation of antibodies.  Factors that influence vitamin status in the horse can include stresses that happen on a regular basis such as stress of competition and performance, stress of transportation and changes in environment.
