Antioxidants are essential to optimal health, it's just that simple. But some parts of our body are more difficult to protect with antioxidants than others are. For example, every cell in our body is made up of a lipid bilayer that can only be shielded by fat-soluble antioxidants. That's why NOW Ascorbyl Palmitate 500 mg Vcaps® are a scientifically formulated fat-soluble version of ascorbic acid, and much easier to utilize in human cell membranes. As a powerful variety of Vitamin C, this highly effective antioxidant has been used to promote and maintain healthy skin, increased energy and overall levels of vitality.*
Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
