The Real Thing Ester-C Combo
A Natural, esterified form of Vitamin C that is absorbed about 400 times faster than the Vitamin C itself. With Bioflavonoids, Organic Kelp & Rockweed, Spirulina, Selenium. Ingredients: two seaweeds (Kelp and Rockweed), Citrus bioflavonoids, Spirulina, and the trace element selenium.
IT’S MORE EASILY ABSORBED – A few hours after taking Ester-C, blood levels are twice as high as they would be after regular vitamin C. Plus the loss of ascorbate by urine is a massive six-times lower.
IT’S MORE BIOAVAILABLE – its high concentration of the vitamin C metabolite calcium threonate effectively increases its absorption even further (upto around 400 times quicker).
IT’S SIDE-EFFECT FREE – Regular vitamin C is acidic (ascorbic acid) associated with heartburn, stomach irritation and even damage to tooth enamel. But not pH-neutralised Ester-C.
IT LASTS ALL DAY – Ester-C is not only absorbed faster, it’s also retained in the body’s white blood cells for up to 24 hours. That’s anti-oxidation around the clock.
IMMUNE BOOST- Ester-C enhances immunity by increasing ascorbic acid levels in white blood cells for up to 24 hours after the initial dose.
ANTI-INFECTION- Ester-C cuts the incidence of the common cold. It also reduces the number of days of viral infection and severe symptoms.
ANTI-OXIDATION- Ester-C helps strengthen cell membranes and shields the body from free-radical damage. Plus it comes with anti-inflammatory action.
PRO-HEART HEALTH- Its antioxidant action has even bigger cardiovascular benefits. Ester-C protects good HDL cholesterol molecules from oxidative damage and helps to balance blood pressure levels.
PRO-COLLAGEN- It promotes collagen production, which the body uses to build cartilage, bones, skin, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels, teeth and gums.
PRO-HEALING- Great for maintenance and mending, Ester-C has been found to help promote wound healing and connective tissue repair.
2. Kelp and Rockweed?
There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables. Prevents assimilation of different radionucleotides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins.
An easily absorbed array of essential nutrients – some of them rare.
Minerals – they contain 10 to 20 times more minerals than land plants, including sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and trace minerals
Antioxidants, like chlorophyll and carotenes
PRO-IMMUNITY- Sea greens are great for immune-compromised states like chronic fatigue, HIV/Aids, arthritis and allergies. They also come with anti-inflammatory effects.
ANTI-INFECTION- They have antiviral, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties. They help stop herpes outbreaks and give the thyroid a hand in releasing iodine into the bloodstream to fight infection.
PRO-DETOXIFICATION- Both kelp and rockweed contain sodium alginate – a totally safe substance known for detoxifying effects, anti-tumour properties and a talent for counteracting nuclear radiation. Kelp also contains mucilaginous (read: gooey) compounds that help the digestive system do its detoxing and eliminating work.
PRO-THYROID HEALTH- Glands like the adrenals, pituitary and thyroid all need iodine to produce hormones. And sea veggies have organic iodine in volumes. That’s what makes them great glandular balancers – particularly the production of the thyroid hormone that influences metabolism, growth and energy production.
PRO-WEIGHT LOSS. Kelp improves glandular and metabolic function leading to reduced fat stores and fluid retention.
Spirulina has more of everything. It has three times more protein than meat, milk or eggs, 20 times more beta-carotene than carrots, 250 times more vitamin B12 than liver and around 12 times more iron than, well, anything else.
PHYCOCYANIN– It puts the blue in the blue-green algae. This blue pigment acts as an immune-stimulant, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It helps prevent nerve damage, oxidation, liver disease and arthritis. Plus it’s regulates white blood cell production and stimulates bone marrow stem cells to make red blood cells – even if the bone marrow has been damaged by radiation or toxins.
PROTEIN AND AMINO ACIDS– Compromised immune systems are hungry for the amino acids cysteine, glutamine and tryptophan. Spirulina serves them all, and many others. In fact, it’s 62% pure amino acids. So it’s a great source of high-quality vegan protein – with three times more protein than meat, eggs or milk.
VITAMINS– Everything from vitamin A, the Bs, C, E, and H. It’s also considered the richest natural source of vitamin B12.
ANTIOXIDANTS– The free-radical scavenging is done by spirulina’s chlorophyll, and carotenoids like beta-carotene beta-cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin.
GAMMA LINOLEIC ACID (GLA)- A fabulous fatty acid that helps reduce cholesterol levels. Spirulina has around three times more of it than evening primrose oil.
TRACE ELEMENTS AND MINERALS– Among others, it’s got calcium, iron, magnesium, chromium, copper, zinc and immune-friendly selenium.
ANTI-INFECTION. It’s been shown to work against bacteria like E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus, and viruses like human cytomegalovirus, measles, mumps, influenza and Herpes Simplex Type I.
PRO-IMMUNITY. Spirulina is very well-used in immune-deficient diseases like HIV/AIDS. It’s a clinically proven immune tool.
PRO-BIOTIC. It feeds the growth of beneficial lactic-acid bacteria, which can be depleted after a course of antibiotics.
4. CITRUS BIOFLAVONOIDS?
They’re found in citrus fruits like lemon, orange, tangerine and grapefruit. They have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects. These Boiflavonoids are essential for vitamin C absorption.
ANTI-INFECTION, INFLAMMATION AND ALLERGIES. As far back as the 1950s citrus bioflavonoids were found to improve acute respiratory infections (like colds, flu and tonsillitis) in only eight to 48 hours. They can also help reduce inflammation, swelling and allergic reactions.
PRO-HEALING. A well-known 1962 study showed that athletes who took a citrus bioflavonoid supplement seldom suffered cramps and had fewer muscle injuries than placebo takers. Plus their injuries healed twice as fast.
ANTI-OXIDATION. They work synergistically with vitamin C to protect the body from free radicals.
PRO-CIRCULATION. Bioflavonoids can help smooth out circulatory problems. They’ve been found to support capillaries and veins and improve chronic venous insufficiency. Plus they’re used to help treat haemorrhoids, easy bruising and high cholesterol.
It’s a member of the trace-mineral family – meaning it’s essential for good health, but only needed.
PRO-IMMUNITY. A study from the University of Brussels found that elderly people who took selenium daily showed a 79% improvement in immune function. And research published in The Lancet in 2000 found that HIV/AIDS patients with low selenium levels were 20 times more likely to die from an AIDS-related illness than those with healthy levels.
ANTI-OXIDATION. Selenium is an essential element in enzyme production. Your body adds it to proteins to form selenoproteins – antioxidant enzymes in the task force against free-radical damage and disease.
ANTI-VIRUSES. It’s been found to fight retroviruses and the H5N1 virus (bird flu to you). More impressive, higher selenium levels have been shown to help slow the replication of the HI virus and the progression of HIV to AIDS.
For maintenance, take 2 tablets daily. For infection or an immune-compromised state, take 3 tablets, three times daily, or consult your health practitioner.
