Even though I eat proper meals there are days I am hungry and can eat all day. I also take excellent vitamins. What causes my extreme hunger?

Unfortunately: Many things can contribute to the sensation of hunger beyond nutrient levels/signals. In fact, any form of stress to the body can seem to stimulate the appetite, which is likely some of the mechanism behind "emotional eating". If you look closely at those days, where you are exceptionally hungry, you may readily be able to identify factors that contribute to why your appetite is like it is! ...Read more

I started taking B6 and B12 and I at same time am ravenously hungry, episodes of lightheaded and a bit irritable, is it the vitamins? Is it bad?

I started taking B6 and B12 and I at same time am ravenously hungry, episodes of lightheaded and a bit irritable, is it the vitamins? Is it bad?

Maybe: B6 is involved in making brain neurotransmitters, serotonin & norepinephrine, so depending on the dose, you may have ramped up production a bit. The maximum daily intake is 100 milligrams/day. Vitamin B12 is important in nerve function as well. The recommended intake is usually cited at 2 to 3 micrograms daily, a little more ok. Try to get these in diet; if supplement, not more than recommended. ...Read more

A good quality multivit. Will benefit many. ...Read more

Is "nature made" a trusted vitamin company?!

Maybe.: I do not recommend otc supplements for patients who have medical problems. This is because drug store products are inferior quality, which is why they are cheap. Health food store products are better in quality. For best quality, obtain professional products. However, if you have no medical problems it may make no difference. Check company longevity and whether they have any specialty items. ...Read more

Can you overdose on vitamins?

A ; D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose.
