Life Extension Ascorbyl Palmitate, 500mg, 100 caps


Ascorbyl palmitate (AP) is a bioactive, fat-soluble form of vitamin C that can reach tissue areas ascorbic acid cannot. Even though this form is purely synthetic and is not found in nature, it has been shown to be beneficial for protecting the lipid areas of the body from peroxidation.

The lipophilic AP is able to cross biological barriers and satisfies the tissue demand for ascorbate better than the hydrophilic form. AP should be considered as the preferred form of transport of ascorbate into neural tissues.

Technically, the ascorbic acid “part” of ascorbyl palmitate is only 42% of the total weight. Since ascorbyl palmitate and ascorbic acid work in entirely 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 contents description.

As a powerful variety of Vitamin C, this highly effective antioxidant has been used to promote and maintain healthy skin, increased energy and overall levels of vitality. Scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins can reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer.

Conventional vitamin C is water soluble, and cannot be stored in the body but is expelled in the urine. Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble form of vitamin C and possesses all of the attributes of ascorbic acid.

It is more easily absorbed by the body and can be stored in the membranes of the cells until needed. It is also a powerful antioxidant, the same as vitamin C, and its antioxidant properties are stronger than those of regular ascorbic acid.   Ascorbyl palmitate is very useful to prevent the oxidation of vegetables oils.
