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.
