Ester C Questions

Is anyone here taking Ester C and is there any thoughts on its worth over normal vitamin C. I looked at sites that came up in an internet search engine and some that looked fairly indepentant cited studies that seem to show that ester C is absorbed by the body better and utilized better than normal vitamin C. My interest is peeked because I have some osteoarthritis and wonder if this product would help prevent the joint degeneration. Some of the data on the sites indicate that it will help. There are a couple of sites that talk about vast joint improvement in dogs.

I take standardized turmeric to keep down the inflamation, but this does not improve the condition of the joints. My theory is that it slows down degeneration. I am looking for something that will actually improve the condition of my joints.
