* *ADVISORY* *The RDA of 3,000 IU of preformed Vitamin A is easily achieved with 3 or more servings of vegetables per day, so do not take vitamin A unless you have a documented deficiency. Observe the recommended daily allowance very carefully. Avoid inadvertent overdosing by including all possible sources if you are taking multiple supplements concurrently. Vitamin A toxicity can lead to brain swelling, psychiatric symptoms, joint and bone pain, liver damage, eye damage and more.
DOSAGE:If you do take a multivitamin, limit your options to those with less than 5,000 IU per day (or 2,500 IU twice a day).
CONCLUSION: If you elect to try Vitamin A, remember to include it in your list of medications when you visit your doctor and other health care providers.
