How Many Vitamins are Too Many?
The first question that should be asked is, “Is it even possible to take too many vitamins?” The answer is yes. In a perfect world we could get all the vitamins and minerals that we need from our diet but sadly it’s not the case. There are instances where we have to take supplements so that our body continues to function the way that we want it to. It’s always said that vitamins we take in pill form can help make up for some of the deficiencies in our diet.
Scientists have said that people who eat lots of vitamin and mineral rich foods tend to live longer lives but that doesn’t always apply to pills. With anything you consume, it should be done in moderation. There are always recommended amounts that you should take for every vitamin you consume. Taking more than that can have the possibility of hurting you more than helping you. WebMd recommends for you to read the label so that you are well informed.
If you think about it, you can’t get toxic doses of nutrients from your food but you definitely can through supplements. As much as we don’t want to think that it happens, we have to be careful with everything that we put in our bodies at the end of the day.
A great tip that we can give you is to always run things by your doctor! They’re there to help you so it’s good to ask them if the amount of supplements you are taking is doing more harm than good. They can also help you with understanding the amount you should take. This especially goes for the people that have underlying conditions. That makes it crucial for you to be well informed about taking supplements.
This is one of the reasons IV therapy is becoming so popular. It’s a great way to get the right amount of vitamins and minerals that your body regularly needs. Acquiring vitamins intravenously has been proven very effective in the well being of people because of many reasons.
One is the fact that it works a lot quicker than if you were to take supplements. Two, because it is made to tend to everyone’s needs. Here at The IV Lounge, there is a different IV Cocktail or IM shot for different reasons. You can try our Master Cocktail that contains many minerals like calcium or you can try our Vitamin D Shot and get your required dose of the sunshine vitamin.
If all this sounds great to you then make sure to stop by the IV Lounge where our nurses and physicians will answer any question you may have.
