I don't remember where Hilary Butler got the numbers, but she usually quoted 50mg/kg for a healthy person, which works out to 23mg/lb. I mention it because just recently, I actually got my son's vitC need (32lbs now) down to about this amount (this is about 725mg/day, divided). Given that I've dosed him at much higher doses in the past, I was thrilled. And interested that the amount we got down to, and plateaued at was pretty similar to her formula.
