Updated: Jan 5, 2022
This wonderful vitamin is great for boosting the immune system to help prevent cold and flu.

Buffered Vitamin C 1000mg/1g
Preventative Dosing: 1 gram per day
Acute Illness dosing: to bowel tolerance
Take 1 gram every 30 minutes until you have a loose bowel movement (BM). This is typically around 6-9 grams when you are sick.
The next day take 1 gram less than the dose that gave you a loose BM. ie if you had a loose BM at 9 grams, day 2 you would take 2 grams 4 times per day equaling 8 grams total
Continue taking that dose daily until you get another loose bowel movement then decrease 1 gram per day until it happens again and so on until you are back to one gram per day.
