How do you keep a cold at bay? By maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle, getting adequate rest, and reaching for vitamin-C-rich foods and supplements. Vitamin C is a key factor in the proper functioning of the immune system, helping to boost our resistance to infections. Plus, it plays a crucial role in the growth and repair of body tissues and, since it’s among the most potent antioxidants around, it helps to reduce cell damage, essentially slowing down the body’s aging process.
Unfortunately, vitamin C is not naturally produced by the human body, and circulating levels of this essential nutrient are easily eliminated. That’s why adding vitamin C-rich foods like papayas, berries, bell peppers and dark, leafy greens to the diet is an important first step in achieving optimal health. And during periods of increased demand (such as cold and flu season), the addition of a high quality supplement can help keep things running smoothly.
Unlike many other vitamin C supplements on the market, Sisu Ester-C® delivers the 24-hour immune support your body needs, during those cold, winter months and all year long. This unique form of calcium ascorbate is created when ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is buffered with calcium. The result is a non-acidic form that’s easy on the stomach and less likely to cause the digestive issues associated with regular vitamin C.
In addition, only Ester-C® has active vitamin C metabolites, for improved absorption and retention within the body. Backed by decades of research, it’s better studied than all other buffered vitamin C supplements. It’s also been shown to function biologically like other forms of vitamin C, providing benefits for immune system wellness and antioxidant protection, as well as supporting skin, joint, vision and cardiovascular health.
