What kind of vitamins do you suggest?


Q: Hi. I am 31 years old male. I can not manage m diet plan for vitamins. So Do you suggest if i start taking Vitamins tablets?


A:   Any multivitamin in the market actually meet the daily requirements. If you take the RDA (recommended daily allowance) is not likely that you are going to have vitamin overdose. Regarding of which vitamins may cause overdose symptoms, for example: Niacin flush (excess of vitamin B3) is uncomfortable, and may last 2 to 8 hours. Vitamins A and D may cause symptoms when taken large doses daily for months, but a single large dose of these vitamins is rarely harmful. Complex B vitamins usually do not cause symptoms, and the excess is eliminates by urine. Also minerals, as iron and calcium may cause overdose if taken in excess but when medical care is given promptly usually there is a full recovery.
