Vitamin C is well known for its anti-oxidant and cellular protection properties. In addition,
it is involved in over 300 bodily functions. Vitamin C can be beneficial in chronic musculoskeletal
disorders, it is essential for the formation and maintenance of collagen, strengthens the immune
system and is vital to bones and teeth, blood vessels, healing wounds and iron absorption.
Ester-C® is a revolutionary form of vitamin C, manufactured by a unique, water
based process that combines ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with calcium using no chemical solvents. This exclusive
process provides a non-acidic form of vitamin C, eliminating any acidity problems that can upset a animal’s
stomach. Ester-C® is absorbed into the blood stream twice as fast and is excreted twice as
slowly as ordinary vitamin C. This gives a level that is up to four times higher than is normally possible.
Ester-C® provides an improved absorption creating better tissue utilization.
A vitamin C deficiency contributes more damage to more places in the body and creates more biochemical
chaos than any other single nutrient. A chronic deficiency of vitamin C causes joints and connective tissue
to weaken progressively toward a variety of fatal symptoms.
Studies have proven that Ester-C® gives dramatic pain relief to dogs with arthritis, dysplasia
and a variety of other chronic inflammation processes in joints, skeleton and muscles. In each scientific study
the results were the same, dogs showed improvement, some slightly some almost totally, in a short period of time.
In each case dogs relapsed when Ester-C® was discontinued.
It is known that stress, degenerative disease and inflammatory conditions rapidly deplete necessary levels of
vitamin C in an animal’s body and cell loss is excessive. In the case of a joint this can mean that adequate
cushioning no longer exists. The high demand for ascorbic acid may begin exceeding the hepatic synthesis so
deterioration of the joint continues. Or, supplemented Ester-C® may turn the process around.
Each teaspoon provides over 5000 mg of 100% pure Ester-C® powder.
