The 1000mg tablets are a better buy than the 500's. What I do is cut them in half , but since it leaves a jagged edge that can catch in the throat, cut each of those in half again, making two easier-to-swallow smaller pieces for 1/2 gram.
I have been doing this for quite some time (with a pill cutter available at any drugstore) now, since there is no sense in paying a lot more for the smaller pills that used to be available as part of another chain's store brand, but was discontinued after several years. Then this product that actually comes from the Ester-C company started appearing on vitamin shelves everywhere. i later found out that they made a decision to market it differently.
Anyway, I have been using this form of vitamin C for almost 20 years now upon learning that, while costlier, it was supposed to be better absorbable and perhaps multiple times more potent than the regular kind. There is some dispute about this, yet even before we heard of Ester C, there were reports that buffered C, as calcium ascorbate, also had such an advantage in addition to alleviating any stomach problems with large amounts of ascorbic acid.
How much more of it than than the minimum requirement can we actually benefit from without just paying for more expensive urine? There is reason to believe the answer is some number of grams per day like most other mammals are able to make automatically. Primates must get it from the environment -or die of scurvy- where it would have been in abundant supply before moving away from the tropical areas where human life originated. Anyone interested in the ultimate theory on this idea should search for The Healing Factor by Irwin Stone. It could be one of the most important things ever written over thirty years ago and largely ignored except by the relatively fortunate few of us more likely to be alert to radical alternative health information.

    Comments about Ester C Vitamin C 1000mg, 120 coated tablets:

    At my age I feel the ester C is a better product for me. This one is a high dosage and I do feel like it does help supplement my nutrition as I haven't been sick for the last 3 years, which is when I discovered the product. I like that I only have to take 1 pill a day, and feel between the cost and effectiveness of this product, it's a real value.

      Comments about Ester C Vitamin C 1000mg, 120 coated tablets:

      I use it every day. I play tennis. It keeps me healthy, and I think my bruises heal faster (I get hit by balls sometimes). Wish it was a little smaller tablet, but it's not too bad. Full 1000mg in a tablet, so I can take it once a day.

        My dentist suggested this product along with the Sonicare system for my gums. What a difference it made - my next checkup, 3 months later, there was a HUGE improvement! I have stomach problems, but Ester C causes no problems (what a relief!) Great price, fast delivery - LOVE Drugstore.com!
