Ascorbyl palmitate (AP) is an ester formed from ascorbic and palmitic acid, creating a form of vitamin C to reach tissue areas where ascorbic acid cannot. This form has been shown to be beneficial for protecting the lipids from peroxidation. The lipophilic AP is able to cross biological barriers and satisfies the tissue demand for ascorbate better than the hydrophilic form. AP should be considered as the preferred form of transport of ascorbate into neural tissues. Technically, the ascorbic acid side of ascorbyl palmitate is only 40% of the total weight. The concentration of ascorbic acid by weight has little relevance to the benefits of ascorbyl palmitate, because they work in separate body areas. Thus, it has not been included in the product contents description.
