Ascorbyl Palmitate

Ascorbyl Palmitate

Technically, the ascorbic acid part of ascorbyl palmitate is only 42% of the total weight. Since ascorbyl palmitate and ascorbic acid might work in separate areas of the body, the concentration of ascorbic acid by weight has little relevance to the benefits of ascorbyl palmitate, so it has not been included in the product.

Ascorbyl palmitate is an ester formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid creating a fat-soluble form of vitamin C. It offers all the benefits of ascorbic acid, plus it won't flush out of the body as quickly as ascorbic acid, and it is able to be stored in cell membranes until the body needs it. Information provided by Life Extension Foundation.

Ascorbic acid is especially important for neutralizing free radicals. It also:

  • Helps in the production of collagen and maintenance of healthy skin and blood vessels
  • Promotes the healing of scar tissue and fractures
  • Strengthens blood vessels
  • Promotes healthy teeth and gums
  • Helps the body utilize iron and folic acid
  • Supports the thymus gland
  • Enhances T-cell production, increasing resistance to viral and bacterial infections, and some allergies
  • Helps increase interferon levels
  • Aids in the absorption of iron and the formation of red blood cells
  • Protects blood lipids from peroxidation ? Helps to reduce the effects of some allergy-producing substances
