- Esterified Vitamin C
NOW® ascorbyl palmitate is a highly stable form of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C. Ascorbyl palmitate is soluble in both water and lipid, and this dual solubility allows it to be incorporated into cell membranes where it neutralizes free radicals and helps maintain healthy tissues.* While it possesses all of the antioxidant properties of vitamin C, it can also more easily penetrate the blood-brain barrier, facilitating the extension of its antioxidant activities to the brain and nervous system.*
Antioxidants are essential to optimal health, it's just that simple. 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.
