When it comes to the topic of appropriate dosing of vitamins, it’s important to understand the definitions of Daily Value and Tolerable Upper Limit .
- Daily Value (DV) is the amount you should take to prevent deficiency. Vitamin Armor Vitamin100 provides 100% DV so you achieve optimal levels when combined with your diet.
- Tolerable Upper Limit (UL) is the amount you do not want to take because this is where side effects occur. The UL includes the amount from all sources including diet and supplements. Some vitamins have a DV that is very close to the UL. This is generally true of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K as well as the minerals iron and selenium. Most vitamins have a UL that you should be aware to prevent toxic doses and side effects. Vitamin Armor Vitamin l00 provides 100% DV so you will not approach toxic levels when combined with your diet.
