How much Vitamin A is too much?
Vitamin A is a fat soluble Vite and is in many of the supplements you sell…How much is too much on a daily basis?!?
Why is it not excluded from some of the formulas, if I’m taking adequate amounts with your multi, etc…Please allay my concerns, as I am looking to add hair & eye formulas, but am a bit nervous about the added quantities of A.
From the FAQs:
“Can I accidentally take too many nutrients?
Nutrient levels are a very personal choice. Although our products are additive-free and safe to take daily, only you can decide if the levels meet your needs. There is no chance of “overdose” or toxicity of the ingredients if you combine them, as long as you stay within the suggested use for each product.”
I did some research. It seems the most common issue with an “overdose” of vitamin A is liver damage.
However, the general consensus is if you’re taking a multivitamin, look for one that contains no more than 3,000 IU of vitamin A in the active form (indicated on the label as retinol, retinyl acetate, or retinyl palmitate). Many manufacturers are reducing levels or replacing with beta-carotene.
There are no toxicity issues with beta-carotene or other carotenoids.
All of Lessman’s vitamin A is delivered as natural beta -carotene, so there should be no worries how much of HIS vitamin A you consume.
I also just found a blog post from a couple of years ago wher he specifically addresses the Vitamin A issue.
