A question: what is the optimal dose of Vitamin C per day? Currently I am taking 2x500mg. tablets but would prefer to jettison the pills and replace them with adequate amounts of natural substances(no fruit or starchy carb sources ideally). ANy ideas as to what qualifies as 'the optimal' dose for the average person?
I can't answer the dosage question but a good source of vitamin C is fermented sauerkraut (not vinegar-made). It's my understanding that sea travelers would bring barrels of sauerkraut and eat it daily to prevent scurvy.
Red bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C with very little fructose. They should be eaten raw like an apple. I rather like the taste, to be honest.
