BioBalance Liposomal Vitamin C is a tasty liquid vitamin C offering flexible dose administration and superior bioavailability using high quality liposomes. Nature knows best! Via mother’s milk, essential nutrients are fed to the developing infant within liposomes. Our liposomal vitamin C delivery system emulates nature’s example, providing superior absorption to cells.
Liposomes are the same structure as cell membranes, and naturally form an outer shell around the vitamin C (natural sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid). At a validated size variation of only 370 nanometres, these microscopic, highly structured lipid spheres cross the small intestine, enter the bloodstream and deliver the vitamin C right inside the cells of tissues needing repair, at the same time as they fuse with the cell membrane.
Our soy-free liposomes are made from an all-natural, non-hydrogenated phosphatidylcholine, derived from non-GMO sunflower oil. Go to the Quality Assurance tab on this page to see photographic evidence of the quality of BioBalance liposomes.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and a powerful antioxidant, supporting natural immunity and resistance to allergens. It is necessary for iron absorption, and because it has a vital role in all of the hormones produced by the adrenal glands, it is rapidly used up during stress.
Vitamin C is also needed for collagen formation and wound healing. Collagen helps form connective tissue, so the entire musculo-skeletal system depends on it to stay healthy. The blood vessels and organs also rely on it to maintain their structural integrity.
Vitamin C is safe in high doses because it is a water soluble vitamin that the body self regulates. Nearly all of the vitamin C in Liposomal Vitamin C reaches the cells, maximising the effectiveness of each dose.

Message from Biobalance's Naturopath regarding the sugar content in our liposomal products: There’s only 0.5g sugar per 5ml serving – that’s about 1/8th teaspoon. The World Health Organisation recommends that adults have no more than 12 teaspoons per day of added sugar. This wouldn’t be considered added sugar as it is derived from fruit and glycerine.
- "I have been taking this product for quite a while now. Even when I have been in contact with people who had a cold and flue symptoms I never got it. Would recommend it especially to seniors of any age."

BioBalance is the child of the Butler family, whose 30 years worth of experience with natural products and deep respect for the New Zealand environment has informed their line of effective and affordable organic supplements.
Not only do they draw their inspiration from their South Island community, they also often draw their ingredients from this area too and, when products are not able to be locally sourced, are only acquired from the highest standard international organic farmers. Their range reflects this, so local superfoods take their place alongside globally renowned superfoods.
