    I have went through chemo for cancer and I took this with my doctors approval and it helped to keep my white blood cell count up. I'm not saying that everyone taking this will have this effect because you have to eat properly also. Make sure you get your doctors approval because all medicines react different, especially with chemo drugs.

    For me, it is an antihistimine. If I have sinus drainage down my throat or a runny nose, swollen nostrels, Ester C slows it down or stops it. If you need to test for allergies, you must stop using prior to being tested. A lot of medical people don't know this. It blew me away that many don't.

    I take 500mg-1000mg of Ester C every day for tennis elbow. Side effects include less severe colds. The gummies are easy to take but the tablet form is hard to swallow

    Due to my constant hyper-acidity, I take Ester C instead of Ascorbic Acid because it is non acidic.

    When I take Ester-C oral 500 MG. once a day, I do less sneezing and sniffeling. I visit my mother at a retirement home. When I do without Ester-C- oral, the nurses there get nervous, and worry about the residents there. When I take Ester-C oral, The nurses are satisfied that all is well with me, and the residents are safe.
