Your body uses both fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins. Water-soluble vitamins cannot be stored by your body, and are easily removed through urine. Fat-soluble vitamins, on the other hand, can be stored by your body. Vitamin C comes in both fat-soluble and water-soluble forms. The water-soluble form of vitamin C is known as ascorbic acid, while the fat-soluble form of vitamin C is known as ascorbyl palmitate. You can’t produce your own vitamin C, which means that you must obtain it through your diet or a supplement. Ascorbyl palmitate supplements are the most convenient choice, because your body is able to store it.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that prevents your cells from suffering the damage potentially caused by free radicals. This vitamin is also needed by your immune system in order to produce white blood cells, which fight off bacteria and viruses. It also helps your digestive system absorb iron and folic acid, which are essential for the production of the red blood cells that transport oxygen around your body. Vitamin C also keeps your teeth and gums healthy and works to produce collagen, a protein found in your skin and blood vessels. This vitamin is also beneficial if you suffer from allergies because it prevents the release of histamine, the chemical that makes your mucous membranes swell and causes your nose to become stuffy when you have a cold or allergy.
Vitamin C can be found in a range of fruits and vegetables, including peppers, oranges, sweet potatoes, and broccoli. You may be at risk for a deficiency if you’re unable to eat a balanced diet. Pure Encapsulations’ Ascorbyl Palmitate capsules can be used to treat mild vitamin C deficiency. Low levels of the vitamin can cause bleeding gums, pain and swelling in and around your joints, slow wound healing, unexplained bruising and bleeding, and scurvy.
Each bottle of Ascorbyl Palmitate by Pure Encapsulations contains 180 vegetable capsules, which is enough to last for up to six months, depending on your dosage.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions? If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. People with the following conditions should consult their doctor before supplementing with vitamin C: glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, iron overload (hemosiderosis or hemochromatosis), history of kidney stones, or kidney failure. It has been suggested that people who form calcium oxalate kidney stones should avoid vitamin C supplements because vitamin C can convert into oxalate and increase urinary oxalate. Consult your physician for more information.
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions? Ascorbyl palmitate may react with mixed amphetamines (a specific amphetamine combination used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit disorder) and blood thinning medications. Consult your physician for more information.
