Complementary Medicine

Vitamin Intake

03/09/2007

Question:

I am a 23 year old woman wanting to make sure that I`m not taking too many vitamins. I currently take a multi-vitamin, a calcium, folic acid and vitamin c. I also wanted to add lycopene. Is this too much? I am about 5`5 and 120 lbs. Thank you.

Answer:

This question has been forwarded by Diet and Nutrition:

That is a pretty good combination, but if you want the lycopene free take Centrum Silver as the multivitamin. We would use more extensive supplements but not without an exam.
