I read recently that the maximum recommended dose is 5000 IU, which is also the RDA. The reason for that is, being oil soluble, vitamin A accumulates in the body, and it is toxic at high levels. The safest way to get vitamin A is by eating vegetables rich in carotenes, such as carrots, broccoli, yams, etc. Vegetables contain other carotenes, in addition to beta-carotene. The body only makes as much vitamin A as needed from carotenes, so there is no danger of overdose.

How are you managing that, Steve? Are you eating liver or kidneys regularly, or are you eating a large amount of vegetables containing beta-carotene?
