This vitamin can increase your risk of bone fractures

One condition that can arise because of the build-up of too much vitamin A is hypervitaminosis A, which causes vitamin A to store in the liver and lead to vision, bone, and skin changes. In severe cases, the pressure in the liver caused by too much vitamin A can increase pressure on the brain.

An overdose of vitamin A is considered taking in over 1.5mg a day. The National Health Services suggests consuming more than that recommended amount over the course of years is what can contribute to vitamin A overdose.

Because women over the age of 50 are already more prone to osteoporosis, it’s even more important that this demographic avoid vitamin A overdose, as it can increase their risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures.

It is recommended that if you are a female over the age of 50, you should avoid supplementing vitamin A and avoid organ foods like liver, which tend to be high in vitamin A. Instead, taking in the recommended amount through your diet, which should include a variety of foods, is enough to ensure you get adequate levels of vitamin A without the risk of overdosing.

no not really the body will get rid of unwanted vits but its not advisable to do it intentionally
