Megadosing


If you're constantly digging your hand into a jar of vitamins, popping one into your mouth faster than you can chew the last one, then take this word of advice.

Take a chill pill.

While vitamins are certainly an essential part of your everyday intake, there are certainly perils in over-indulging in such products.

The term "megadosing" refers to the condition in which you intake more than 10 times the determined RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowances), a condition that can ultimately prove to be hazardous to your health.

The body will store essential vitamins and minerals until needed, but when it is housing excessive amounts or more than necessary, it can take on a toxic effect. Thus, many of your organs are directly put at risk.

The vitamins most dangerous to megadose on are the fat-soluble ones, namely Vitamin-A, Vitamin-D, Vitamin-E, and Vitamin-K.

Megadosing on Vitamin-A has been linked to complications for pregnant women among delivery, while Vitamin-C has been linked to kidney stones. Vitamin B-6, taken in excess, can damage your nervous system while many others can damage the liver and kindeys.

Indulging in too many vitamins of one type can also upset the balance, thus leading to deficiencies in other vitamins. It can also interfere with the effectiveness of other medications you are taking.

Do not be worried about megadosing on vitamins from your natural food intake. The chances of that are slim indeed. For example, eating high amounts of salad or green vegetables is highly unlikely to result in a megadose of Vitamin-K.

However, be wise when taking vitamins that you intake through tablet or pill form. It is hardly a more-the-merrier scenario, not unless long-term medical ailments will bring you glee.
