Hi, This is my first question and I would like to know how works this app. So I would like to know how many gramm of C-vitamin I need a day? Thanks!

In brief: 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.
