Amni® Ester-C® Complex capsules, provided by Douglas

Laboratories®, contain a non-acidic, calcium ascorbate form

of vitamin C combined with a potent citrus bioflavonoid

complex.

Ester-C® is a unique form of vitamin C that is created

through a patented, water-based process that combines

vitamin C and calcium. Ester-C® is non-acidic and should be

well-tolerated by those who are sensitive to the acidic nature

of ascorbic acid.

Vitamin C: Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous

biological functions. It is essential for the synthesis of

collagen and glycosaminoglycans, which are the building

materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood

vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the

required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze

the crosslinking of collagen fibers - lysyl hydroxylases and

prolyl hydroxylases. As such, vitamin C is essential for

normal wound healing and capillary health.

Vitamin C participates in the biosynthesis of carnitine,

serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including

norepinephrine.

Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in

humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chain-breaking

antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl

radicals, and singlet oxygen. Laboratory studies show that

vitamin C completely protects lipids in plasma and lowdensity

lipoprotein (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative

damage. In addition, vitamin C interacts with glutathione

and alpha-lipoic acid, and regenerates vitamin E.

The antioxidant functions of vitamin C appear to have

clinical significance in providing protection from free radical

damage to the eyes, lungs, blood and the immune system.

Vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestine by a sodiumdependent

transport process that is intake dependent. At

normal dietary intakes of 60 to 100 mg, up to 80 or 90% of

the vitamin C is absorbed. At higher intakes, absorption

becomes less efficient. Absorption efficiency and vitamin C

utilization may be greatly enhanced during conditions of

physiological stress, such as trauma or infection. Maximal

absorption is attained by the ingestion of several doses

spaced throughout the day rather than in one, larger dose.

Citrus Bioflavonoids. The white layer of citrus peels is

especially rich in the bitter tasting flavanones hesperidin and

naringin. Citrus juices, however, are low in bioflavonoids.

Like most flavonoids, those from citrus are free radical

scavenging antioxidants that work in synergy with vitamin

C. Ester-C® Complex provides 100 mg of a concentrated

bioflavonoid complex containing 35 mg hesperidin and 14

mg naringin. This extract is essentially free of citric acid to

which some people may be sensitive.
