Too Much Beta Caroten

Recommended Posts

Hey i am clear but now another problem i have is that people notice my face is yellow. I am 100% sure that its because of my huge vegetable/beta caroten intake. Also i take multivitamins which has twice as much as i need for one day.

I've cut down on the food and stopped taking the multivitamin to try to stop it since i think its annoying when people ask me about my yellow face. I am just wondeirng how long will this discoloration long?

Anyone ever watch that Magic School Bus episode where Arnold turns orange? Actually, this also happened to an aunt of mine. Too many carrots.

I know that the epidermis replaces itself about every five weeks. The yellowness is not the result of scarring, or anything permanent, so it should fade within that timeframe.

Eek. How yellow is it? Orange could indicate too much beta carotene...yellow could be a sign of jaundice, which could indicate a problem with your liver. Cut down on the vitamins if you're eating a balanced diet....this issue, if its really noticeable, is not a good thing at all.
