How do you determine your maintenance dose and how do you spread your maintenance dose out during the day?
Schigara wrote:Personally, I want the steadiest flow of c I can get so I spread my doses out roughly every hour to 1.5 hours apart while awake. I take 10 doses per day of 1.5 grams(3 500mg tablets) which totals 15grams in a day. This amount gives me a good bit of gas. Last week I tried upping the doses to 2 grams at a time to see if I could handle 20 grams a day and after the 8th dose, I had a loose bowel movement.
It's all just trial and error but the main thing is to not try to take giant doses at one time.
Example: One time I took 5 grams at once and got a very loose BM. This does not mean my daily bowel tolerance is 5grams. This just means my per dose limit is less than 5grams. My daily limit is between 16-18 grams. There is a difference between dose limit and daily limit.

Thank you. That was very helpful. One more question if you don't mind. Do you find taking Vitamin C in capsule form vs. powder form gives you a little more control using the dosage strategy that you just outlined? I am currently experimenting with both powder and capsules to see which works better for me.

As per the above literature it would be fair to say that there is no solid evidence to suggest magnesium stearate is harmful.
