You might not know it, but the phrase “too much of a good thing” is actually Shakespearean, made famous in As You Like It. And the fact is, that phrase has stuck around because you really can have too much of any good thing. Take water, for instance. It’s one of the best things in the world for your body, but too much in a short amount of time can create an electrolyte imbalance in the brain, causing it to swell. This potentially deadly situation, often caused by water drinking contests or in response to the drug Ecstasy, is rare but just goes to show that you can, indeed, get too much of a good thing.
The same goes with any supplement. Even simple multivitamins have warnings to keep them out of reach of children, specifically because ingesting too much iron can be fatal. The right amount of iron is important for oxygen transportation in your blood; too much can be deadly.
So, you might be wondering about our pharmaceutical-grade supplements. Is it possible to take too many? Well, if you read those first two paragraphs above, you know that the answer is yes. First off, let’s say that taking the dosage recommended on the label is your best bet to staying safe, especially if your doctor signs off on the addition of supplements to your diet. Second, it’s important to always purchase high-quality supplements from a top supplement brand like Nutriflair. Always purchase from a company with the highest standards, such as those made in an FDA-approved facility. After all, you never know if supplements from other countries could contain too much of the particular ingredient.
In every case, our labels are accurate and have the proper recommendation on how much you should take. Why shouldn’t you take more? Let’s take a look at what could happen if you take “too much of a good thing.”
NutriFlair 15 Day Quick Colon Cleanse and Detox - One of the active ingredients in our colon cleanse tablets is psyllium husk, which is an excellent form of fiber. Most adults don’t get enough fiber in their diet, so our colon cleanse pills work well to get things moving. However, too much psyllium can have the same effects as when you eat three cans of bean soup: excessive gas and stomach cramping. A little bit of this is normal with a high-fiber food, but too much can lead to severe cramping.
Another problem: while fiber is important in a healthy diet, too much can also interfere with the absorption of protein, vitamins, and minerals. That’s why it’s important to get just the right amount when you’re on a cleanse, or certain deficiencies could occur.
NutriFlair 95% HCA Garcinia Cambogia - We really want you to get the most possible out of your Garcinia Cambogia. People love to use it to curb the appetite and the way that it helps to burn fat, especially when paired with exercise. That’s why a serving of our garcinia cambogia weight loss pills clocks in at 1400mg of the best Garcinia Cambogia available, and we recommend you take those two tables about 30 minutes before a meal with a full glass of water. While our maximum recommendation of 2800mg a day is okay for some people, research shows that any more than 2000mg a day can lead to headaches, gastrointestinal discomfort, and nausea. If you’re doing fine with a single dose of our Garcinia Cambogia weight loss pills and want more of the benefits, feel free to try the 2800mg but then back off if that’s too much.
NutriFlair Ceylon Cinnamon - People have been using Ceylon Cinnamon pills for a very long time in order to help manage blood sugar levels. We recommend a dose of 1200mg with a full glass of water just before a meal to get the best effect from our Ceylon cinnamon supplements
But what about coumarin? Some people might avoid cinnamon because it contains the chemical compound coumarin, which has been found to cause liver and kidney damage in high concentrations. But Ceylon Cinnamon, aka true cinnamon, aka Cinnamomum Verum, has very little coumarin. That’s why we want to once again suggest buying high-quality supplements, because if they’re using regular cinnamon instead of Ceylon Cinnamon, you could be overdosing on coumarin.
Can you overdose on Ceylon Cinnamon? Very little has been done to study the effects of too much Ceylon Cinnamon, but the 1200mg has been recognized as a safe amount. As usual, you should always tell your doctor about any changes in your diet, including supplements.
Whew, that’s a lot to say about only three of our online health supplements.
