Why Safety Is Important When Taking A Vitamin A Supplement?

Vitamin A is an important element required for the healthy functioning of the body. One of the easiest ways to get the suggested dietary amount is through the use of vitamin A supplements. It is important to pay attention to the amount of vitamin A that is ingested, however, because large doses can actually be very harmful and even cause vitamin A poisoning. Most vitamin A supplements should be taken only after examining the amount of the vitamin in any other supplements being taken. Additionally, some topical skin treatments contain vitamin A as well and can be absorbed into the body quickly. Taking too much vitamin A can result in serious liver damage, although a vitamin A deficiency is equally as harmful over time.
