Experts say that excessive consumption of vitamins can only worsen a person's condition, since some substances considered useful can even cause poisoning when taken in large quantities. Nutritionist Mikhail Ginzburg warned about this.
First of all, this concerns fat-soluble vitamins - vitamin and especially D. Recently, “shock” doses of vitamin D have been recommended very often, but at its concentration a person may experience weakness, bone pain and headaches, - he explained in an interview with the Zvezda TV channel. …
According to the doctor, studies have shown that people who take large doses of beta-carotene are more likely to develop skin cancer. However, for a long time, doctors thought that this vitamin has only a beneficial effect on the body.
Taking vitamin C in off-scale doses - one to three grams per day - can increase the risk of kidney stones. There may also be an excess of iron in the body, which can also lead to diseases, - said Ginzburg.
He also noted that the dose of vitamin C that can be taken without harm to health is 100-150 milligrams per day. It can be obtained by eating one orange or vegetable salad.
Earlier, nutritionist Natalya Grigorieva said that the weight standards for residents of Russia and Russian officials, voiced by the chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir Zhirinovsky, are not supported by anything and have no basis, NEWS.ru reported.
