People often ask if they should be worried about getting too much of a particular vitamin. While our bodies require certain nutrients that can be obtained through supplements, dosage can be the difference between benefit and harm. It is especially important to always read labels and discuss your supplement regime with your physician, particularly when combining different multivitamins, multi-minerals and fortified foods with similar ingredients, which can lead to a higher intake than is recommended. To avoid any potential for toxicity or overdose, you may want to choose a supplement routine that is designed for you by a nutritionist and takes overall dosages into account.
