Amount of vitamin C in amla powder
Hello James,

you said that you prefer amla berries as source of vitamin C.

How much natural vitamin C do you recommend per day (since your 3x500mg recommendation refers only to ascorbic acid)?

It seems amla powder contains only 7 - 10mg of vitamin C per gram (http://blog.organicindiausa.com/earth-da...amalaki/). So it's quite hard to get enough vitamin C with amla.

Several manufacturers of camu camus powder claim that there is about 130mg/g of vitamin C in it. Although the vitamin C in camu camu is less stable than in amla berries it seems that camu camu is a better vitamin C source.

Regards,
Michael

RE: Amount of vitamin C in amla powder
I'm sure he would still recommend Amla over any synthetic form or even camu camu. According to him, with natural vitamin C you need way less than synthetic.
