I recently bought a bottle of Vitamin A (8,000 IU)

And I am going to take 1 pill a day. I didn't think taking this everyday could cause harm can it?

I keep reading about it being 'fat' soluble and not 'water' soluble...

So how exactly does it leave the body? And is it safe to take one 8,000 IU a day?

Thanks in advance!

You could take more than that and be fine, it's definitely safe. take it with food because it's fat soluble and taking zinc with it improves absorption.

I was wondering the same thing. I just started taking Herpanacine.

3 pills have:

Vitamin A (as beta-carotene) 12,500 IU 250%

Vitamin E (as d-alpha-tocopheryl succinate) 100 IU 333%

Selenium (as sodium selenate) 50 mcg 71%

Herpanacine Proprietary Blend: 1,400 mg *

Lysine (as L-lysine HCI), L-tyrosine, astragalus root, dandelion root, sarsaparilla root, echinacea (aerial parts), ligustrum berry

I take 3 twice daily. I've heard that beta carotene is water soluble not fat soluble so it's safe. But my question is does this combo work?

Also the one I'm taking contains zinc.

So far the only thing that I have seen immediate results in is the reduction of oil on my face. It just normal in that sense. I don't even use oil control powder anymore.
