Vitamin A is an essential fat soluble for humans and promotes good eyesight (helps us see in the dark) aids in the cells of the skin and mucous membranes (lining inside the body) aids in keeping a stronger immune system and strengthens bone and may reduce the risk of certain cancers. The recommended dose for for men is 1,000 micrograms of RE per day and for women 800 micrograms RE per day. It is better to get Vitamin A by diet as sometimes some people have a low tolerance to it or take too large a dose (or the supplement you buy may be too high for each individual.) It is harmful and can cause, fatty liver, weakness, headaches, anorexia, vomiting, fatigue, dry skin and birth defects among pregnant women. Diet is the best way to go and the richest foods in Vitamin A are liver Vitamin A is stored in the liver), fish liver oils, milk, milk products, butter and eggs. Vitamin A is also found in turnip greens, bok choy, mustard greens, romaine lettuce, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, spinach, butternut squash, deep orange fruits and all dark green vegetables and some fats should be introduced along with it. Steaming instead of boiling the vegetables is best to keep the nutrients in and the vegetables should be 'just cooked' and not over done.

Thanks for the feedback!
You need about 1.25 mg of vitamin D. Ask your doctor, but 2000 I.U. is recommended for anyone with deficiencies or arthritis or difficulty with getting enough sunlight in wint…ertime. My sister takes even more at the direction of an herb doctor. 2000 I.U. is safe, and in time the recommended daily allowance will be increased closer to this amount, it is very low now. I am a former nurse also...
im wondering the same thing!
i dont know :D
The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) is about 12 mg Vitamin E isn't measured in mg's. It's measured in IU's (International Units). The recommended daily dose for a 2000 cal…orie diet is 30 IU's, Most multiple vitamins have more, much more than the RDA, but E is very important for circulation, heart health and many requirements at the cellular level. It's fat soluble, so for better ablorbstion, it should be taken with some protein or fat like a piece of cheese or a dab or peanut butter.
About 1.4 mg per day.
10,000 IU or go to a physician and if your vitamin D level is low, he/she can give you prescription doses at 50,000 IU per pill which you take weekly for roughly 3 months. Af…terward you get your levels checked to see where you fall. Be very careful taking doses higher than 5,000 IU daily if you don't know your current vitamin D status.
The daily recommended value is 400-800 IU (depending on age). Official safe upper limit is 2000 IU. Various groups are asking for both these values to be increased. These v…alues also vary slightly based on who you ask. info: http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminD-HealthProfessional/
It all depend on the individual like children, adult men, woman, pregnant woman and aged person. On an average adult men needs around 75mg to 100mg of Vitamin C as daily requi…rement.
A lot! Vitamin C metabolizes proteins into energy, boost the immune system, builds collagen in the skin, promotes healing and joint repair, helps keep arteries strong, and hel…ps to prevents plaque buildup in the blood vessels. Government standards are 90mg for men/ 75mg for women daily though you should really check with your doctor to find the amount that is right for you.
It all depends on how active you are and your age. Generally speaking everyone should take a good multi vitamin daily. This at the very least covers the basics to keep the bod…y running effectually. People who are more physical need more specific supplements for the activity they do. A health care specialist should sit down with you, to over the physical activities you do and suggest the proper supplements and vitamins needed. Just common sence tells up that a 50 year old couch potato and a 50 year old bodybuilder require different vitamins, diets, and supplementation.
about 10 grams a day should be fine
Recommended amount for an adult male is 90 milligrams per day. With the max being 2000 milligrams per day.
The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin B6 is 2.0 mg/day for the adult man and 1.6 mg/day for the adult woman.
how much b1 do you need in a day
u should give them the cattle cake
Assuming you're asking how much vitamin D does a person living in Jamaica need, the answer would be the same as a person living anywhere else. The difference is that they like…ly will be getting enough of it from the synthesis of the sun. People ages 19-50 years should get 5 mcg a day, ages 51-70 should get 10 mcg a day, and over 70 should get 15 mcg a day.
