Nutralife Ester C 1500mg + Bioflavanoids Tablets is a patented form of vitamin C. It is the most bioavailable form developed. Metabolites in Ester-C help the vitamin get into cells more efficiently.
Ester-C is absorbed into the blood stream twice as fast and held in the body twice as long as ordinary vitamin C, increasing its effectiveness.
Ester-C is more effective than other vitamin C and is non-acidic (pH7). It is patented and scientifically supported. Taken daily, Ester-C helps to support natural immunity over 24 hours, during times of seasonal change and situations that challenge your immune system.
Ester-C 1500mg is a high potency, stomach-friendly Vitamin C that provides 24 hour immune support plus bioflavonoids.

Q What is Ester-C® and how does it differ from ordinary Vitamin C?
A When Vitamin C is metabolised in the body, it breaks down into secondary compounds called metabolites. Scientific studies1,2 show that Threonic Acid*, one of these metabolites, is responsible for the differences between ordinary Vitamin C and Ester-C®, including
- its high bioavailability
- its ability to provide a full 24 hours of immune support, compared with the 2 hours of ordinary Vitamin C.
*Threonic Acid is standardised in Ester-C® as Calcium Threonate.
Q Why is Ester-C® described as “stomachfriendly”?
A Ordinary Vitamin C is acidic (its scientific name is “ascorbic acid”), which means that it may cause gastro-intestinal irritation in some people. The unique water-based process that Ester-C® undergoes, however, makes it non-acidic. This means that it can be gentler on the stomach than ordinary Vitamin C.
Q What are Citrus Bioflavonoids, and why does this product contain them?
A Bioflavonoids are a family of compounds found in plants, which can have a wide range of health benefits. The Citrus Bioflavonoids in Nutra-Life Ester-C 1500mg + Bioflavonoids help to increase the absorption and effect of
the Vitamin C, and provide extra antioxidant activity. They also help to maintain strong, healthy capillary walls.
