I do not claim to have researched this, but my memory goes back to the very early 80's, when my older brother was into Linus Pauling. (C and cancer) He kept a big bowl of C out on the counter and just helped himself to it all day long. Again, I have not researched Pauling, but back then, he recommended mega, mega doses all day long.
He could now be considered a crack pot for all I know, but maybe his work is something some of you may want to look at?
As for spacing, I generally take 3 X day. (same for beta carotene and garlic) Since taking on a more serious fight (since starting Amox), I am increasing it and taking 1000 mg a couple more times per day, w/ a snack. Just trying to keep the highest level possible in my system. If I start experiencing problems, I'll reconsider.
*** Important note: I am a smoker. So my cigarrettes are destroying my C, probably faster than I can keep up with!
