Ascorbyl Palmitate 500 mg - 100 Vcaps

Antioxidants are essential to optimal health, period.  But some parts of our body are more difficult to protect with antioxidants than others are. For example, every cell in our body is made up of a lipid bilayer that can only be shielded by fat-soluble antioxidants. That’s why NOW Ascorbyl Palmitate 500 mg Vcaps are a scientifically formulated fat-soluble version of ascorbic acid, and much easier to utilize in human cell membranes.

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.
