Sandy asks…

Vitamins and minerals question?

1. Do all vitamins and minerals within a multivitamin get absorbed to their fullest extent, as if they were taken individually?

2. Would exactly would be the differences in taking various vitamins and minerals throughout the day vs. taking them together all at once? Would they all be absorbed adequately?

vti answers:

Unless vitamins and minerals are prescribed by a doctor they are totally unnecessary so it doesn’t matter when you take them.
It is possible to overdose on vitamins. Vitamin A for example if taken to excess by a pregnant woman can cause birth defects in the baby.

Vitamins and Minerals?

If you take more vitamins and minerals than what you are supposed to everyday, does your body use all that you need then throw away the extra stuff, or does it use it then store it for later use?

stored up for future use.

William asks…

What kinds of vitamin or minerals help with bad eyesight?

i need to know what kind of vitamin or mineral that helps eyesight the best. Does Zinc work for eyesight?

vti answers:

Vitamin A and lycopene are the best vitamins for eyes. However, they only really help if you are deficient in them. Lycopene is found in watermelon and tomatoes, but normally isn’t in vitamin pills or fortified cereal, whereas vitamin A is found in both. Avoid high doses of vitamin A as it can cause psychosis is you take too much, so don’t overdo it. The type of problems you get with vitamin A deficiency tend to be things like night blindness, where you have almost no eyesight in low light. If you can see ANYTHING in your house with a lit candle or a nightlight, you are doing alright.
