I just bought the women’s pack multivitamins from Nutrilite. Some concerns like5000 IU for Vitamin A or calcium 400 mg. Safe? May lead to kidneystone?

Multivitamins: In general, most multivitamins have the RDA (recommended daily allowance) for most vitamins and most minerals. For the fat-soluble vitamins (Vitamin A and E), it is not recommended taking more than the RDA in a supplement unless you are under the supervision of a physician.
