Need help. Is 2000 mg of vitamin d too much to intake for me?

Need help. Is 2000 mg of vitamin d too much to intake for me?

Probably no unless: If you literally mean 2000 mg that is a very toxic dose, as 2000 mg = 80 million iu of vitamin d! however, I have a feeling you are asking if 2000 iu of vit d is too much, as vit d is almost always labeled in iu rather than mg. Most adults need to take 5000-8000 iu/day to achieve optimal levels. See http://www.Vitamindcouncil.Org/about-vitamin-d/how-do-i-get-the-vitamin-d-my-body-needs/. ...Read more

Is 4000iu of vitamin A too much to take daily?

Is 4000iu of vitamin A too much to take daily?

Probably fine: Epidemiology generates all kinds of junk data and I'd ignore studies that report, "Thus-and-so many people with more than thus-and-so daily had more / thus of thus-and-so" unless it makes physiologic sense. This is more than you need to be healthy. Ten thousand is an often-cited recommended upper limit. Much higher vitamin A intake actually will make you sick. ...Read more
