Life Extension Ascorbyl Palmitate (vitamin C) Reaches the Tissue That Ascorbic Acid Cannot

Vitamin C, also referred to as ascorbic acid, is a substance which can be found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C works hard to scavenge free radicals in your body and protects your tissue from oxidation. Vitamin C also helps promote your body's absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation. Vitamin C is an essential co-factor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.

Vitamin C also comes in at least two other forms: chemically bonded to minerals as ascorbates, and as the fat-soluble ascorbyl palmitate. Both forms of these two versions of vitamin C are non-acidic.

Your body's highest vitamin C concentration is contained in the adrenal glands and is required at higher levels during times of stress. Physical stress on your body such as: cigarette smoking, ingestion of heavy metals, extreme temperatures,  immune impairment, and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin. All of these factors can cause an increased need for more vitamin C.

Ascorbyl palmitate (AP) is an ester which is formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid. This process creates a fat-soluble form of vitamin C that reaches areas of tissue that ascorbic acid cannot reach. Ascorbyl palmitate is a purely synthetic form of vitamin C which is created from two natural compounds. Ascorbyl palmitate has been proven to enhance the protection of lipids from peroxidation. The lipophilic ascorbyl palmitate is able to cross biological barriers and satisfies your tissue's demand for ascorbate much more than the hydrophilic form. Ascorbyl palmitate is believed to be the preferred form of delivery of ascorbate into your neural tissues.

The ascorbic acid “part” of ascorbyl palmitate is only 40% of its total weight. Since ascorbyl palmitate and ascorbic acid might work in separate areas of your body, the majority of ascorbic acid, by weight, has minor importance to the benefits of ascorbyl palmitate, so it has not been included in the product contents description.
