What it is
The first water and fat soluble combination (in a non-acidic buffered formulation) vitamin C in South Africa: for complete body protection. This combination of vitamin C ensures antioxidant protection of the water and fat soluble areas of the body. Unlike conventional vitamin C, Double Vitamin C™ is able to be stored by the body, and better penetrate the cell membrane to provide intracellular antioxidant protection.
What it does
Vitamin C is a natural essential dietary supplement that aids the body in maintaining the following functions: • Acts as an anti-oxidant and free radical scavenger • Boosts immunity • Helps in common cold prevention • Aids in iron absorption • Increases the healing rate of wounds, burns, fractures and pressure sores.
Ascorbyl palmitate is an oil soluble vitamin C prepared from ascorbic acid with palmitic acid. Since this form of vitamin C is fat soluble it is stored in the lipid cell membrane until the body is ready to put it to use, therefore extending its availability to the cells unlike the water soluble form and improving penetration of the cell membrane. Vitamin C has several physiological functions. It is involved in tyrosine metabolism and is a cofactor in the synthesis of carnitine, thyroxine, norepinephrine, dopamine, and tryptophan. Vitamin C is also involved in a variety of metabolic processes including oxidation-reduction reactions and cellular respiration, carbohydrate metabolism, synthesis of lipids and proteins, catabolism of cholesterol to bile acids, conversion of folic acid to folinic acid, and iron metabolism. Vitamin C is best known for its effects as an antioxidants and its role in maintaining proper immune function.
