The additional benefit of a fat-soluble form of vitamin C.
Vitamin C is considered a key molecule for the entire metabolism. It affects many processes and functions in our body such as the energy balance, the functions of the nervous system and immune system, and cell protection from free radicals.
Another important function of vitamin C is the promotion of collagen formation. Collagen is the most important stability molecule of the connective tissue and is essential for building healthy blood vessels. Vitamin C palmitate is a special form of vitamin C which is also known as ascorbyl palmitate. Ascorbyl palmitate is a compound of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and the fatty acid palmitic acid. In this form of vitamin C, the normally water-soluble vitamin C is predominantly fat-soluble and can therefore reach parts of the body that cannot be reached by the water-soluble form.
Another difference with this form of vitamin C is its transport into the cells. The inflow of water-soluble substances into the body’s cells happens, for example, via small channels in the outer cell layer, since this fat-containing layer forms a barrier to them. It is different for fat-soluble substances: for these, the fat layer is not a barrier, with the result being a better absorption capacity.
