OK, you most likely know that Ascorbic Acid is vitally important to the human body at every level and has some seriously impressive health benefits, but if you’ve been doing your homework, then you probably also know that Ascorbic Acid at the recommended daily amount of under 100 milligrams has no impact against viral infections and disease. At a high dose it could cause an acid load in the body – making Bio-availability a MAJOR issue. Bio-availability is enhanced in NuVita Ester C by the combination of Bioflavonoids, reducing over Acidification, and available in both a water and fat soluble form. Without it you could just be wasting your money.
NuVita Ester C has a fat soluble form, making it instantly Bio-Available to your body – giving you all of those health benefits. And no need to take it all it once, as it is best to micro-dose and spread it out throughout the day.
Two Times Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling said the inability of man to manufacture his own ascorbic acid, due to genetic fault, has been called “hypoascorbemia“. The use of Megascorbic levels of ascorbic acid in the prevention and treatment of viral infections is a practical application of the principles of orthomolecular medicine.
Dr Frederick Klenner, 1936, believed in the healing power of nature, but believed that natural remedies could enhance that power and were safer and more effective than drugs.
This century’s most highly decorated scientist, Linus Pauling, after 20 years of studying vitamin C, estimated that the average number of healthy years and lifespan for people would increase by 25 years if everyone would take the optimum amount of vitamin C (between 2.3 and 10 grams a day.
Dr Levy recommends 6,000 to 12,000 mg daily (2-4 times our recommendation)
Dr. Cathcart determined that the ability to tolerate oral intakes of the vitamin vary between 4000 and 16 000 mg daily during ordinary poor health. Cathcart’s clinical experience demonstrates that virtually every human being will tolerate 4000mg vitamin C daily.
“People are not dying from too much fatty food, they’re dying from too little vitamin C”
Linus Pauling, Vitamin C and Heart Disease, 1977
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant in the aqueous phase of the body. In this process it is converted into the inactive and pro-oxidant form which no longer has antioxidant properties. In NuVita Ester C, Ascorbic Acid is therefore combined with bioflavonoids which serve to regenerate the active form.
The water soluble form of Vitamin C is further combined with the fat soluble form L-ascorbyl palmitate. In this manner, Vitamin C activity in both the lipid and aqueous phases of the body is ensured. The buffered form prevents over acidification of the urine thus also minimizing the risk of kidney stones.
Your immune system is a network of various organs, tissues, and cells that work together to protect your body. NuVita Ester C may not only help to enhance the responses of certain antibodies and cells within the immune system but may also help down regulate the expression of certain pro inflammatory substances.
Ascorbic acid has many important functions. It is a powerful oxidizer. Because of its powerful antioxidant and anti-free radical action, vitamin C is beneficial in a wide variety of diseases including coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer, asthma and allergies as well as against infections including colds and flu when used correctly. This has been verified in various clinical studies.
Antioxidants play a role in keeping our joints healthy. Your body uses antioxidants to combat free radicals. Free radicals are unstable particles that are created as a result of millions of chemical reactions in the body. They can cause oxidative stress and damage on a cellular level. When scientists examine the blood and joint fluid of patients that are suffering with joint discomfort, often times there is an increased activity of free radicals and lower levels of antioxidants.
NuVita Ester C, being a very powerful natural antioxidant, helps reduce and neutralize free radicals, which damage and destroy your cells and DNA causing accelerated aging. Since most ageing disorders are driven by oxidative stress, this makes Ester C a very important daily supplement for aging adults.
A healthy heart consists of many factors, especially eating healthy and routine exercise. Adding Ester C as part of your healthy diet may have many benefits to protect your heart. Oxidized LDL (Low-density lipoprotein) particles (that have been disrupted by free radicals) may produce inflammation in the cardiovascular system. Studies suggest that the antioxidant effects of vitamin C can help fight those free radicals.
As 70% of the immune system resides around the lining of the gut, vitamin C has been shown to calm the digestive system, helping to relieve gas, bloating, and other stomach and bowel issues. It works differently from probiotics or enzymes - naturally soothing the gut, and reducing the overproduction of acid.
The connection between inflammation and cognitive health cannot be overstated. Neurons are especially susceptible to inflammation and the release of inflammatory compounds in the body can be neurotoxic. Vitamin C may help protect those precious brain cells.
Your liver plays an important role in stabilising and balancing the maintenance of your body. The health of your liver can be directly related to oxidative stress and proinflammatory substances. NuVita Ester C may help boost antioxidant defenses to help the liver detoxify and restore balance.
“Of several remedies the physician should choose the least sensational”. Vitamin C fills that criterion. In 1948, Dr Klenner published his first paper on the use of large doses of Vitamin C in the treatment of virus diseases.”
“Vitamin C is the world’s best natural antibiotic, antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine. The importance of vitamin C cannot be over emphasized.”
To stave off a fast-moving infection may require higher levels of essential vitamins and minerals. Vitamin C has an essential role in empowering the immune system. Its oxidized form can be recycled by red blood cells (erythrocytes), but a fast-moving illness can overpower this system, causing vitamin C levels to precipitously drop.

Vitamin C Pioneer Fredrick Klenner, MD, discovered that intravenous vitamin C controls and treats viral infections in the 1940s. See: The Treatment of Poliomyelitis and Other Virus Diseases with Vitamin C
Published on May 21, 2013. Dr. William Jacobs, Jr. has determined that vitamin C kills drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) bacteria in laboratory culture. The paper was published online May 21, 2013 in Nature Communications. Dr. Jacobs is professor of microbiology & immunology and of genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Jacobs is also a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. Video here.
Russel Jaffe, MD, PhD has calculated the affinity the uniquely shaped ascorbate ion (vitamin C) has for various heavy metals, and how much vitamin C is required for detox. Video here.
In the 1930s, Dr. Claus W. Jungblut, an early pioneer of vitamin C therapy, discovered that only primates and guinea pigs were susceptible to scurvy as well as anaphylactic shock, pulmonary tuberculosis, diptheritic intoxication, a poliomyelitis-like viral infection and a viral form of leukemia. None of the vitamin C synthesizing laboratory animals had susceptibility to these diseases.
Risk of gout was found to be lower in individuals with higher vitamin C intake. Compared to individuals with a total vitamin C intake of less than 250 mg per day, those with total intakes of 500 – 999 mg per day had a 17 percent reduced risk of gout. For intakes of 1,000 – 1,499 mg and 1,500 mg or more per day, the risk of getting gout was down by 34 and 45 percent, respectively.
The authors of this study also looked at the relationship between amounts of vitamin C ingested in supplement form only and risk of gout. Here again, higher supplemental levels were associated with a reduced risk of gout. Compared to those who did not supplement with vitamin C, those supplementing with 1,000 – 1,499 mg and 1,500 mg or more of vitamin C per day were found to be at 34 and 45 percent reduced risk of gout, respectively.
These results suggest that vitamin C, either from diet or supplements, is associated with a reduced risk of gout.
A little known benefit discovered by dentists in the 1950s is that 6,000 mg daily completely prevents dental carries (cavaties).
When blood levels are measured, the study results are consistent:
Older Brits with Highest Blood Levels of Vitamins C have Lowest Mortality Rates
A 2003 study from the UK measured Vitamin C blood levels:
These blood measurement studies (as opposed to food questionnaire-based studies) would have made Linus Pauling happy. Pauling wrote that even though he couldn’t prove it, he had become convinced that supplementing high doses of vitamin C, along with other antioxidants, might extend the healthy life span 20 to 30 years.” (ref: How To Live Longer and Feel Better, 1986)
