Are You Taking Too Much Supplements

People tend to forget that a vitamin pill is a supplement- it's meant to complement your diet, not act as a stand-in for the foods you don't eat.
Experts recommend taking no more than one all-purpose multivitamin daily. Don't supplement your diet with individual nutrients without the guidance of your doctor, nutritionist, or other health expert. Keep in mind that the sales clerk in the health food store is usually not a health expert. 
Consuming more than the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals may do more harm than good. With the easy availability of supplements and fortified foods, 'mega-dosing' on nutrients could lead to difficulties in sleeping, focusing or could even affect your mood. Watch out for vitamin D - excessive intake could lead to kidney stones. Over-dosing on vitamin C and zinc could lead to gastrointestinal disorders like diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.
