I'm brand new to Cronometer and food tracking, and I am slightly confused from my research. I'm consuming on average 371% of the daily recommendation for Vitamin A and 171% for Vitamin K. Is this harmful to the body?
Hello @Lyndzwah ,
If you have any concerns about toxicity symptoms you should discuss it with your health care provider.
The vitamin A found in plants are in a form that we have to convert to active vitamin A. If we have enough vitamin A already, we will just convert less of the precursors, that's why plant-based sources of vitamin A do not contribute to the tolerable upper limit for vitamin A.
We also wrote an interesting blog a few years back about vitamin A and carrots : https://cronometer.com/blog/whats-up-with-vitamin-a/
