Is it possible to overdose on Prenatal Vitamins?
I have been tasked with writing an article about prenatal vitamins for hair growth and was shocked to read some of the dangers of using prenatal vitamins when not pregnant.
I can't take them when not pregnant, they make me ill. It wouldn't surprise me if there were dangers.
It is possible to overdose on everything and anything if taken in too large a quantity in a short period of time. Any substance can be poisonous, even if it is normally beneficial. I remember learning in university about a man who died from drinking too much carrot juice in a short time-his skin was orange-tinted when he died. I don't see why vitamins would be different.
I think it's important to know what your body needs and the first option should always be foods that contain those vitamins, as many of the vitamin supplements contain fillers and other ingredients which aren't helpful. Ultimately you can overdose on anything and I wouldn't recommend taking any kind of supplement more than what's suggested on the label.
It's very easy overdosing on vitamins. Firstly, the levels of vitamins in supplements are way too highsince they are meant for specific diseases. Secondly, the fat soluble vitamins tend to get stored in the body organs and high consumption of these over a period of time may lead to hypervitaminosis or vitamin poisoning.
Yes, the main reason is that prenatal vitamins are high in iron. While pregnant and childbearing women need iron due to their monthly cycle or the business of growning a child the body cannot rid its self of the excess iron. This is also a common cause of death in children that eat to many vitamins because they taste good. Only take the recommended amount based on the package and; as much as possible, eat a diet that is wholesome and nourishing to both mom and baby.
