what are some benefits you stand to receive by taking a multivitamin every day and can taking a multivtamin everyday raise your intake of a particular vitamin or mineral to near toxic levels

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. As with any vitamin, check the ingredients and the daily dose suggested. It's a good idea to ask your doctor as well, stating the ingredients and dose suggested. For example, I can NOT have potassium so I have to read all labels to be sure that is not included, or if included, is very little.

    my friend takes a hand full of different vitamins and minerals every moring and i was just wondering and if it was tocix to you body what are some of the consequences of toxicity

  • health -

    One multivitamin a day isn't harmful, but taking many different vitamins could be. I suggest your friend show a pharmacist the vitamins and minerals s/he is taking and ask for advice about them.

    The body needs certain vitamins and minerals to remain healthy. The only way one multivitamin a day could be toxic is if you were also taking massive doses of one or more vitamins or minerals. Check these sites for more information.
