I need to start taking supplement form of Vitamin C. Which type do you get? Which form is it best to be taken in? What's the best dosage? -The RDA seems pretty low 60mg...

My preferred method is 1/2 tsp ascorbic acid (1,000 mg vit c) dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water twice a day (if I'm feeling ill).

I harvested my own rose hips this year though as they grow like weeds on the hillsides and are extremely high in vit c.
