The problem with taking too many vitamins
Keep reading for FREE
Looking at individual studies won't determine if vitamin supplementation is good for you. They're scientifically dense and the conflicts of interest can be very hard to spot.
"Systematic review papers" are much better suited for that. This is where independent scientists gather up all the available data and re-analyze it to answer big questions.
Taking large quantities of minerals and vitamins may affect the absorption of others. And no optimal ratios have been determined so far.
So it's not just that taking lots of one thing is not good for you, it's that it may cause a dangerous reduction in something else even if you are also supplementing that.
