Whole-Body Restoration & Repair.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Vitamin C is most known for supporting the body’s immune system by stimulating the activity of white blood cells. However, it also plays a role in the natural wound healing process, is a powerful antioxidant, aids in the production of collagen for healthy joints and bones, and can even help to reduce stress.
This vital nutrient has gained its reputation from the countless ways it has been shown to support the body's health. Historically, vitamin C was used for preventing and treating scurvy. Today, vitamin C is most often used to support the immune system, as it is recognized as one of the most universal and widely known antioxidants since it’s discovery in 1932. Recently, an article was published looking over 100 studies within 10 years, revealing the growing list of benefits of this powerful and legendary vitamin.
Since the human body does not have the ability to produce vitamin C on its own, supplementing with vitamin C can give you the advantage in supporting your body with all of its benefits. BalanceGenics offers a unique form called Liposomal Vitamin C, which is known to be more absorbable than the traditional vitamin C.

Immune Boosting Antioxidant
The most common reason for taking vitamin C supplements is to boost the immune system. This is mostly due to the research that shows that vitamin C can help support our body during the common cold.
Vitamin C encourages the production of white blood cells which supports the role our antibodies play in helping to promote a healthy immune system. Our immune system can also be affected by oxidative stress. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that supports our body from oxidative stress, and has been shown to regenerate or restore other antioxidants within the body, including vitamin E—which has been shown to be one of the most effective nutrients known to balance immune function. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30501009
Optimal levels of vitamin C will encourage your body to burn fat for energy. When your vitamin C levels are low, you might experience lethargy, especially when you are exercising—causing you to burn out more quickly. This is because vitamin C helps create L-carnitine in your body which is a molecule that is essential for energy production. Without adequate levels of L-carnitine, your body may not be able to burn fat—which will diminish the fuel you need for natural energy.
If you’ve been experiencing a consistent lack of energy, increasing your vitamin C intake could be a great step in the right direction. The adrenal glands, known for boosting our energy supplies, are among the organs with the highest concentration of vitamin C in the body. They struggle to function properly when they don't have enough vitamin C available and in turn, begin to overwork themselves. When your adrenal glands burn out, problems arise like tiredness, trouble falling asleep, and a need for stimulants like caffeine to get through the day.
Supports Collagen Production
Research shows vitamin C is essential for the growth and development of tissue all over the body, including collagen. Collagen is known as the protein that holds your entire body together because it forms the connective tissue for almost all of the body’s structures. As we age, collagen production slows and the rate of collagen loss increases. Vitamin C plays an essential role in helping maintain and promote healthy collagen levels in the skin and body.
Vitamin C helps to support the natural repairing process of tissue in the body by providing tensile strength to collagen, which means that new tissue can stretch without tearing. Studies have shown that taking vitamin C may support the natural wound healing process due to its ability to increase collagen production in the healing tissue. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24796079
Have you ever heard of hyaluronic acid? Chances are some of your favorite face serums have this key ingredient in it. That’s because hyaluronic acid brings moisture to the surface of your skin. The natural hyaluronic acid in our body is known for promoting a healthy recovery time after high intensity exercise, maintaining healthy joints, and can also help boost collagen production. Vitamin C is critical for the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in your body—which decreases as you age.
Promotes a Healthy Stress Response
The highest concentration of vitamin C in the body is stored in the adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands generate cortisol and other hormones that promote a healthy response to stress. These glands use a significant amount of vitamin C each time a stress response gets triggered. When you are under a lot of stress (in the ‘fight or flight’ mode), your vitamin C is rapidly used in the production of cortisol and other related stress hormones.
When this happens, and your body has used up high amounts of vitamin C to try and support your stress response, the adrenal glands can become exhausted, resulting in the release of more cortisol. Vitamin C works constantly to support the adrenal glands, healthier stress levels, immune system function, and a healthy weight.
