Eli5 Overconsumption of vitamins



What would happen to the body if one would eat “too much” vitamins, over the recommended level?

In: Biology

While some vitamins, like vitamin C, aren’t fat soluble and any excess is excreted through urine, others are stored and can become toxic in overdoses.

If you eat too much Vitamin C and feel it burning when you take a piss, thats how you know.

Every medicine is toxic, only in the right dosis it is a medicine. So it depends on which vitamine you overdose
