500-3000 mg 2x/day : While some authorities feel 60-90 mg is adequate, the Vitamin C Foundation recommends adults take 1000 mg of vit C 3x/day. Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling advised 6-18,000 mg/day. Noted expert Thomas Levy MD advises 6-12,000 mg/day. I personally take 1-2,000 mg 2x/day. While lower doses prevent deficiency, I believe high doses protect against heart disease, cancer and many other chronic diseases.
