It depends: The institute of medicine sets recommended dietary allowance(rda) at 600 iu for people ages 1-70 with safe upper limits for daily intake ages 9 & above at 4, 000iu. Many people take doses much higher than this if their levels are low but should do so under the supervision of their physician. If levels are normal 1, 000 iu is a good maintenance dose for adults.

That's safe: I'm assuming you are otherwise healthy. It is probably not doing you any good or any harm. Very high doses can produce oxalate toxicity and ruin your kidneys. I think every physician here will agree with me that health doesn't come out of a pill bottle. You're in the prime of your manhood -- perhaps you are already undertaking, or considering, a major fitness ccommitment. More good than vitamins. ...Read more

I take B - complex vitamin with my daily men's vitamin. I take it to boost my energy. Can to much B, hurt?
Yes.: Even though B vitamins are water soluble and not stored in our fat like the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K), too much of certain Bs, like B6 and B3 (niacin,) can get you in trouble. Going above 200 mg a day of B6 has the potential to cause numbness and other nerve problems. High doses of Niacin (2000 mg a day) can lead to elevated liver enzymes, jaundice and nausea. ...Read more

51 iu or 51 nl/ml?: If your blood level is 51 ng/ml you have more than sufficient vitamin d and you don't need to supplement whatsoever. A recent analysis of many vitamin d studies showed that vitamin d supplementing almost never improves health unless you address why the vitamin d was low in the first place. ...Read more
See below: The appropriate dose of biotin depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for biotin. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.

Probably not needed: The institute of medicine recently did a review of vitamin d needs. They concluded that we probably take more than we need.
