In a recent blog we discussed the importance of not getting too much of a good thing. After all, as beneficial as our high-quality supplements are, it’s important to not exceed the recommended amount. No matter how good something can be for you, too much of it can cause problems. In our previous blog we discussed why you shouldn’t take too many of our colon cleanse pills (cramping), Garcinia Cambogia (headaches or nausea), or Ceylon cinnamon supplements (not much of a risk, as it turns out, but you should still stick to the recommended dosage). Take the right amount and you’re fine...too much and the roblems arise.
Today we’re going to discuss five more of our pharmaceutical-grade supplements and why you shouldn’t overdo it too much, even as you see their beneficial effects working in your life.
NutriFlair Horny Goat Weed Supplement with Maca Root - NutriFlair's recommended dosage of horny goat weed and icariin is well within the recommended daily intakes. The most common side effect of horny goat weed supplements is nausea, but that often goes away after your body gets accustomed to it. If you take it for more than a few days and are still feeling a bit sick after using it, discontinue using the supplements.
Taking in too much horny goat weed (overdosing) could result in breathing problems. Everything suggests that this only occurs when too much is taken. We understand the “more is better” approach when it comes to horny goat weed, but be sure to stay within the recommended dosage on the bottle. If you ever feel bad after starting supplement, consult your doctor.
NutriFlair Liver Detoxifier and Support with Milk Thistle - Milk thistle pills are a great way to help your liver out, and as we’ve discussed before your liver is vital to dozens of processes in your body. So it’s always important to keep it as happy as possible!
As long as you’re not allergic to milk thistle (and similar plants such as ragweed), you shouldn't have any problems with the 200mg offered in our milk thistle supplements. Overdosing could certainly cause problems, though, such as diarrhea, bloating, gas, and bloating. Milk thistle might affect estrogen levels, so it’s always a good idea to talk with your doctor before starting them.
NutriFlair Saw Palmetto Capsules - Keeping the prostate healthy is a high priority for many men as they age. That’s why so many of them are taking saw palmetto pills with a glass of water and a meal. Taking them without a meal could lead to minor gastrointestinal distress. Saw palmetto is GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA.
When it comes to taking too much saw palmetto, there is the risk of increased blood clotting time if you are cut. If you are due for surgery soon, a doctor may well ask you to discontinue all dietary supplements. Children should not take saw palmetto unless it’s specifically suggested by a doctor.
NutriFlair Thyroid Support Complex Supplement with Iodine - Iodine is more than just important to the function of the thyroid; it’s absolutely essential. That’s why it’s important to have enough iodine in your system to keep healthy, and a good part of that is taking thyroid health supplements. Technically, you need specific types of iodine called iodides. (Elemental iodine, the metal-like element, is actually very toxic to humans.)
Still, you don’t want to suffer from any form of iodine overdose, elemental or otherwise. The iodides we offer are the right kinds to keep your thyroid happy, but it’s important to not overdose on them. Overdosing could lead to fever, vomiting, shortness of breath, and abdominal pain.
NutriFlair Turmeric Curcumin with BioPerine (Black Pepper Fruit Extract) - Our turmeric curcumin pills are often used by people interested in detoxifying the liver and aiding the rest of the digestive system.
Turmeric Curcumin is one of the safest of all the supplements we offer, and toxicity has not been established in clinical studies. While we don’t recommend taking more than the recommended amount on the bottle, it’s unlikely to cause any problems. The most likely problems you might experience with overdose would be mild diarrhea or nausea.
So there you have it, the problems you might run into if you mistakenly take too much of one of our supplements. In the end, it’s important to keep track of how much you’re taking into your body and not exceed the recommend dosage on the bottle. After all, we’d done a lot of research into the right amount that we should put in our high-quality supplements, and that includes safe amounts that still give the benefits you’re looking for. As always, involving your doctor is a good idea whenever you make changes to your diet or if you’re nursing or pregnant.
