“Today, we recognize the gazillion ways vitamin C is good for our body, mind, and soul.” National Today
There are numerous articles online about the wonders of vitamin C, so I’m not going to rehash that here, instead, I decided to use this day as an excuse to formulate. I normally drink the Vit/Min Tea every morning to help increase my vitamin and mineral intake but when I saw that National Vitamin C Day was coming up, I decided to formulate a Vit C Boost.
RDA: The Recommended Dietary Allowance for adults 19 years and older is 90 mg daily for men and 75 mg for women. For pregnancy and lactation, the amount increases to 85 mg and 120 mg daily, respectively. Smoking can deplete vitamin C levels in the body, so an additional 35 mg beyond the RDA is suggested for smokers. UL: The Tolerable Upper Intake Level is the maximum daily intake unlikely to cause harmful effects on health. The UL for vitamin C is 2000 mg daily; taking beyond this amount may promote gastrointestinal distress and diarrhea. Only in specific scenarios, such as under medical supervision or in controlled clinical trials, amounts higher than the UL are sometimes used.  Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
Given this information, I went on a search for the herbs with the highest levels of vitamin C. I chose to stay with items that can be found in FoodData Central. After compiling a list of 20+ herbs and their vitamin C data, I started formulating.
