Many multivitamin/mineral supplements provide only 60 mg of vitamin C.
Based on the combined evidence from metabolic, pharmacokinetic, and observational studies and from randomized controlled trials, it has been argued that sufficient scientific evidence exists to support an optimum, daily vitamin C intake of at least 200 mg/day, which is substantially higher than the current RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance).
To make sure you meet the Linus Pauling Institute's recommendation, supplemental vitamin C in two separate 250-mg doses, taken in the morning and evening is recommended.
