Everybody knows that vitamin C is important. It supports your immune system‚ capillary and vascular integrity‚ and has antioxidant properties. There are so many supplements available on the market‚ but they aren't all the same. A lot of supplements provide standard ascorbic acid. While that's fine‚ the vitamin is water-soluble‚ which you may not like. Water-soluble vitamins leave your body quickly‚ in a day or so; this means that you may risk having low levels of the nutrient despite your best efforts.
If you're struggling with vitamin C absorption‚ Ascorbyl Palmitate by Pure Encapsulations may be right for you. It contains a fat-soluble form of ascorbic acid. This makes it unique‚ because it allows its ingredients to be stored in lipid cell membranes for extended periods of time. Instead of wasting excess intake‚ your body can keep it safe until it's ready to use it. One vegetable capsule contains 450 mg of ascorbyl palmitate.
For example‚ vitamin C helps your body absorb iron‚ convert folic acid into an active usable form‚ and synthesize steroids and carnitine. With foods or a water-soluble supplement‚ the ascorbic acid may not be present in your system when you consume these other substances--will you really drink orange juice with a steak or protein shake? Ascorbyl palmitate allows you to experience greater benefits from your diet or other supplements.
Each bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Ascorbyl Palmitate provides 90 capsules' worth of fat-soluble vitamin C. At the recommended dosage of one to two capsules daily with meals‚ it should last for up to three months.
