How much vitamin A do you need?
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.

Vitamin B6 works with other enzymes to regulate many processes in your body. Studies have shown the benefits of vitamin B6 in relieving edema and reducing water retention, i…mproving magnesium deficiency, peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, rheumatism, cardiovascular occlusions and myocardial infarcts, learning and developmental disorders, and autism. Technically, vitamin B6 is an umbrella term given to three different vitamins, pyridoxine, pridoxal, and pyridoxamine. The three B6 vitamins work together with other enzymes to speed up chemical reactions in cells. Those processes include making amino acids, creating neurotransmitters like serotonin and metabolizing energy released in creating red blood cells. Vitamin B6 benefits also include helping to balance hormones and strengthen the immune system.
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.
More accurately Men should intake minimum of 90mg/day and women 75mg/day 200mg - 300mg is a good target . One should not intake more than 20,000mg/day. . To help stop the …spread of misinformation please reference answers if possible.. http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/what-should-you-eat/vitamin-c/index.html. It varies between who you ask but I believe that you need 70- 80mg per day.
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.
The official RDA for vitamin C is about 60mg.

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...
The best practice is to discuss this with your child's health care practitioner but the reputable sites and the USDA suggest about 25mg - 45mg of Vitamin C is adequate for chi…ldren. If your child's diet consists of a variety of fruits and vegetables then they may already be getting enough Vitamin C and do not require supplements. Here is a link to the USDA - Food and Nutrition Board, National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council list of Vitamins and Supplement recommendations for children. From personal experience it was difficult to find supplements that had such low levels of Vitamin C but we did find one finally, a product by Floradix called Kindervidal which has many different vitamins and minerals including 25mg Vitamin C. We just simply mix it in with our child`s water or juice every morning. Another answer You can find Vitamin C in Whole foods or similar health stores, I don't think 25mg is enough for a child. I would do more research on it. Adults need over 1000mg a day. It's not harmful, only will give you diarrhea if you take too much for your system. All you need to do is take less until it stops and you find the proper dose for yourself.
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.
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.
Vitamin C !! Why? That's because it's water soluble and we tend to excrete most of it out in a normal day of urination and perspiration.
0-14.9 ng/mL = Severely deficient 15.0-31.9 ng/mL = Mildly deficient 32.0-100.0 ng/mL = Optimal >100.0 ng/mL = Toxicity possible Individuals having a high risk o…f deficiency should consume 25 μg (1000 IU) of vitamin D daily to maintain adequate blood concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D.
We need vitamins to keep our body strong and healthy.
