Excess Vitamin 'It' Precisely Dangers Make the Heart

CLEAR.CO.ID - It is true that the human body requires the intake of vitamin A and D to maintain durability, but too many vitamins can also endanger the health, especially heart disorders.

"Too much consumption of vitamin A and D can lead to impaired liver function," says clinical nutrition specialist from the Faculty of medicine-RSCM, Dr. Fiastuti Witjaksono, SpGK.

Fiastuti explain that vitamin A and D is a fat-soluble vitamin, so if the levels are too much, then it will be stored in the liver.

While water-soluble vitamins, when levels are too high will be excreted through the urine.

"Intoxication or excess vitamin A and D usually occur due to eating too much fish oil," said Fiastuti.

According to him, it is because fish oil is a good source of vitamins A and D as well as the highest unsaturated fatty acids.

"But the people of Indonesia do not have to worry. Because fish consumption in the country is still very low even though we are a maritime nation," he said.

Fiastuti further explained that the average Indonesian people only eat fish as much as eight grams per capita per day. While the supposed amount of fish consumed protein is 30 grams per capita per day.
