Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that boasts many benefits including boosting immune system function and antioxidant reserves, maintaining normal inflammatory balance, as well as promoting collagen formation to maintain healthy skin, ligaments, tendons and joints. It's considered essential to humans because we are unable to synthesize it naturally. Furthermore, exposure to smoke, pollution, radiation, heavy metals and high-stress lifestyles all increase the body's requirement for vitamin C, making dietary supplementation recommended.

VITAMIN C BENEFITS†

  • Boosts Immune System Function and Antioxidant Reserves
  • Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance
  • Promotes Collagen Formation
  • Maintains Healthy Skin, Ligaments, Tendons and Joints

Cardiovascular Health

Research has shown vitamin C to have a strong relationship with cardiovascular health and that supplemental vitamin C intake supports this. (1) Furthermore, supplementation had a significant impact on maintaining healthy blood fats (2). In addition, cross-sectional studies have indicated that plasma vitamin C concentration helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels in both men and women. (2-4)

Immune Function & Antioxidant Support

Vitamin C supplementation has been studied for more than six decades for its role in supporting the body during immune challenges. It has been shown to stimulate both the production (5,6) and function (7) of white blood cells—your immune system guardians. Further, through its potent antioxidant functions, vitamin C has been shown to protect these cells from self-inflicted oxidative damage.

Research has shown the ascorbic acid form of vitamin C in high doses to be beneficial in supporting immune health. (8,9) Additionally, vitamin C has been found to mediate histamine responses.

Skin & Beauty Support

The antioxidant properties of vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis have been shown to promote skin health. Specifically, research has found that its role in collagen formation makes it vital to maintaining skin, capillary, gum, joint and skeletal health.

Keratinocytes (cells that produce keratin) have a high capacity for transporting vitamin C which compensates for limited blood flow to the epidermis. (10, 11) Research has also shown that Vitamin C's role in normal tissue repair and recovery may include promoting keratinocyte differentiation (12, 13) which stimulates the formation of the epidermal barrier and re-establishes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. (14) Furthermore, intakes of dietary vitamin C have been correlated with a decreased risk of dry skin. (15)

THE DANGERS OF VITAMIN C DEFICIENCY †

Vitamin C helps to get rid of free radicals that can impact cells and tissue, which means fewer triggers for inflammation in the body with abundance. While a true deficiency in vitamin C is rare, evidence suggests that many people have low levels. Adequate intake and retention is necessary to maintain healthy vitamin C status in the body.

Signs of deficiency include dry and splitting hair, bleeding gums, dry or scaly skin and easy bruising. Severe vitamin C deficiency is known as a condition called scurvy—albeit rare in the majority of today's population, current lifestyle factors raise the requirement for this vitamin.

Family First

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.

When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…

Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…

 

Functional Medicine Formulations

It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.

For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.

Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms… 

 

Zero Compromise Policy

I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the Equilibrium Nutrition line that I would not compromise on quality…

Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would not take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.

This has enabled Equilibrium to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.

 

GMP Certified

Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:

  • Heavy metals
  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Impurities
  • Standard dosages

This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.

Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!

 

Consistency & Freshness

Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.

Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…

Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.

This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.

This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!

At Equilibrium Nutrition we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
