Vitacost Vitamin C with Zinc -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules
Really like the fact that these are time release. Seems to work better than just plain Vitamin C.

Vitacost Vitamin C with Zinc
I like the smallish capsules. I hate taking horse pill vitamins and these are really easy to swallow. I think just getting the RDA is sufficient when it comes to Vitamin C but lets face it Vitamin C is only in so many foods that we eat consistently. So I find supplementing my diet with these caps is a sound investment in my health.
