Vitamin Overdose is definitly to avoid
There are a lot of reasons people tend to overdose on vitamins, and in some cases they are not even aware of this condition until it shows up in some medical test which is brought on by an illness.
Overdosing could be due to a number of reasons and most are simply due to the individual being careless or ill informed.
Taking vitamin supplements without proper medical supervision is also not advised as some vitamins don’t react well to other medications that the individual may be taking for certain medical conditions.
Taking these vitamin supplements may cause the other medications to mutate or at the very least become non effective in treating the ailment is was prescribed to treat.
This of course could result in a very dangerous situation for the individual. Then there are also some vitamins that have been known to take away the effects of other vitamins when taken together.
Following the dosage prescribed on the container is also very important for any deviation could result in an overdose especially when taking extra just to make up for the skipped sessions.
Another way to ensure the individual is not likely to overdose on the vitamins taken, is to have periodic blood tests done, as any negative elements will show up clearly in the reports drawn up from the rests.
Taking vitamin supplements simply because it is the thing to do is not enough a reason to start on this regiment. Also taking vitamins without considering the overall lifestyle of the individual is also not a good idea.
For some taking vitamin supplements is done so, in place of proper food intake, and this too is not wise. All these scenarios can and usually leads to either the body not being able to absorb the vitamin fast enough thus retaining them to possible negative medical complications, or having them wasted, as it simply flushes out of the body system unused..
I hope that now you are on your way to a better understanding about vitamins.[:]
