What Is Ascorbyl Palmitate?

Getting enough vitamin C is important to your overall health. Maintaining optimal levels of vitamin C can help promote longevity. This form of vitamin C can cross cell membranes and other biological barriers, delivering free radical-scavenging ascorbic acid to regions that would otherwise be unreachable.

Unlike ascorbic acid, which is water-soluble, ascorbyl palmitate can cross cell membranes and other biological barriers.

Ascorbyl Palmitate Benefits

  • Provides fat-soluble antioxidant protection
  • Reaches tissue areas ascorbic acid cannot
  • Maintains optimal levels of circulating ascorbic acid longer than ordinary ascorbic acid

Ascorbyl palmitate (AP) is an ester formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid creating a form of vitamin C that is fat-soluble, meaning it can interact with lipid-based molecules. Unlike naturally-occurring vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which is strictly water-soluble, ascorbyl palmitate is able to cross cell membranes and other biological barriers. This characteristic gives it special applications for delivering free radical-scavenging ascorbic acid to otherwise unreachable parts of the body.1,2
