You might have heard the term before, but what is ascorbyl palmitate? This chemical compound is formed when ascorbic acid and palmitic acid come together and create a form of vitamin C that's fat soluble, which means it can be stored by the body in fatty tissues. Typically, vitamin C is water-soluble, which means the body cannot store it.
Vitamin C helps support a normal, healthy collagen synthesis, promotes immune function and so much more.† It’s naturally found in fruits and vegetables, such as brightly colored citrus fruits and leafy greens. Ascorbyl palmitate possesses all the benefits of vitamin C and is preserved in the body's lipid cell membranes for later use.
