Superfoods for Adderall users

I've been doing some research over the past couple of days, and I've found a selection of foods which are moderately high Alkaline and contain no Vitamin C or very trace amounts of it. These foods are pretty hard to find, since most high Alkaline foods are fruits and veggies, and most fruits and veggies contain a ton of Vitamin C. Your wheat products, meat products, grains, beans, dairy, etc. are all acidic.

If you don't know already, acidic foods and foods with moderate amounts of Vitamin C interfere with the absorption of Adderall. Alkaline foods on the other hand, create a basic environment in the stomach which helps the Adderall in terms of effectiveness. I'm sure all of us (or many of us) have experienced eating a meal on Adderall, and noticing the effects diminish almost immediately.

Why would you want to use these foods? Maybe to off-set other foods you are about to eat, or to simply increase the effectiveness of your dose. Practically all other fruits and veggies other than the ones below contain much higher amounts of Vitamin C.
  • Dates (dried)
    • 0.4mg Vitamin C per serving
    • Highly Alkaline (8.5)
  • Almonds
    • 0mg Vitamin C per serving
    • Slightly Alkaline (7.0)
  • Raisins
    • 0.6mg Vitamin C per 50 raisins (seedless)
    • Very Alkaline (8.5)
  • Pears (fresh)
    • 3.8mg - 6mg Vitamin C per pear
    • Very Alkaline (8.0)
  • Tofu (Nigari, raw)
    • 0.2mg Vitamin C per serving
    • Slightly Alkaline (7.0)
  • Apricots
    • 3.5mg Vitamin C per apricot
    • Very Alkaline (8.0)
  • Bamboo Shoots (canned)
    • 1.4mg Vitamin C per cup
    • Moderately Alkaline (7.5)
