In the past, I have had great success with fermented cod liver oil in helping my acne. 1 tsp a day basically took all of the oil out of my skin, stopped breakouts, and gave me no side effects at all. The problem is the stuff that I was using costs a fortune and I just can not afford it anymore unfortunately.
The blend that I was taking apparently had the correct ratios of Vitamin A, Vitamin D, and Vitamin K2 which enhance the safety I have read. I have purchased 5,000 IU pills of Vitamin D as well as Vitamin K2. I am considering purchasing Vitamin A to go along with it to try and recreate the cod liver oil. I am reading a lot about people supplementing Vitamin A and it seems dangerous. Many of the people were taken very high doses though.
Does anyone have experience with taking 5,000 IU of Vitamin A a day and know if this is dangerous? The brand lists the ingredient like this: Vitamin A (as retinyl palmitate) 5000 IU.
