Overdose Of Gummy 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.

Taking Hairfinity and Nature's Bounty "B-Complex with Folic Acid, Vitamin C+Biotin". Does combining the two exceed daily limit of vitamins? Harmful??
Inconsequential : Vitamin c is water soluable, therefore amounts taken in excess of dietary needs are quickly excreted by the kidneys. Thus vitamin c has a very low toxicity. In rat studies the ld50 (dose that kills 50%) is very high. We have no data in humans to compare. One might expect diarrhea and/or abdominal cramping but nothing dangerous. If intentional overdose seek, psychiatric care immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?
I do not: Like the formula. They contain 9 grams of carbohydrate and the amount of thiamin (as are the doses of all the vitamins) is too low to metabolize that amount of carb. You can look it up on line. This expresses an incredible ignorance of industry in vitamins and foods. In pregnancy, first you need a pristine diet and the vitamin supplementation should be ordered by your ob/gyn. ...Read more
Only if NEED them!: Unless you are iron deficient and do not eat a balanced diet with sufficient nutrient intake, you likely get all you need and additional supplements are unnecessary, but can also cause constipation and dark stools (iron) and stress your kidneys (excess water-soluble vitamin b's)! honest! if you are anemic and/or vitamin deficient, then by all means take vitamins as directed by your diagnosing md. ...Read more

Not at all unless...: Magnesium is safe to take in high doses unless you have kidney failure. Most multivitamins don't have much magnesium & many people will benefit from additional magnesium. Magnesium may cause loose stools, esp. If you take too much or use a poorly absorbed form. Magnesium taurate & glycinate are relatively well-absorbed forms, with mag. Citrate next best. ...Read more

Are gummy vitamins as beneficial and sufficient just as much as the "pill" vitamins?...Do gummy vitamins works just as well?
They could be but...: There are many different "pill" vitamins and many different gummy vitamins, so it is impossible to make a blanket statement. Just as some pills are better than others, some gummies are better. There is nothing about a gummy that should make it not work if it has good ingredients but most gummies tend to have poor-quality ingredients. See http://bit.Ly/1b36cq0 for info on which vits. Are best. ...Read more
