Why use Healtheries Ester-C® 500mg chewable tablets?


You probably already know some of why Ester-C® is better than ordinary Vitamin C. You might know it’s absorbed nearly twice as fast as regular Vitamin C.  Or that Ester-C® keeps supporting your immune system for 24 hours after you take it (ordinary Vitamin C only lasts 2-3 hours). 

You might also know Ester-C® is completely non-acidic, so it’s gentler to your stomach. But the BIG news is that Ester-C® is now available in a tangy, lemon-lime flavoured chewable tablet. So for great-tasting, non-acidic immunity support that’s absorbed quickly and lasts all day, try Healtheries Ester-C® 500mg chewable tablets.

Ingredient Information

Vitamin C

  • Vitamin C is “the immunity vitamin”. It helps your body to build up resistance to all kinds of common infections; and can help to reduce your recovery time.
  • Your white blood cells (part of your immune system) need Vitamin C to function normally and help you fight off bacterial / viral infections.
  • Your adrenal glands use up Vitamin C when they respond to stressful situations (e.g. sudden temperature changes, change of seasons, life stresses, etc).
  • Your body uses Vitamin C to make collagen – a protein that helps to form healthy skin, ligaments, tendons, bones and teeth. That’s why your body needs more Vitamin C when you’re healing from surgery and injury.
  • Vitamin C helps your body to absorb Iron – a mineral you need for healthy red blood cells, which help to reduce fatigue and support immunity.
  • Finally, Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect your cells against free radical damage, which can cause disease.


  • Ester-C® is produced from Calcium Ascorbate, using a patented, water-based process.
  • One of the metabolites (the compounds that form when your body breaks down a nutrient) of Vitamin C is Threonic Acid. Threonic Acid is standardised in Ester-C® as Calcium threonate.
  • Researchers have extensively studied Calcium threonate, and discovered that it is responsible for many of the differences between Ester-C® and standard Vitamin C.  These differences include Ester-C® being absorbed twice as fast, and lasting up to 24 hours in your body.
