What is the correct dosage for Cod liver soft gels 1000 & Chewable celin?

Hi, I ve been taking Cod liver soft gels 1000 & Chewable celin (Vitamin C) daily and have noticed increase in hair fall. I checked online and it suggests excessive vitamin A & C can both lead to hair loss? Is once a day an excessive dosage? Should I change it to twice a week? Also, should I add Vitamin E soft gels & biotin to my supplements? I eat a healthy veg diet otherwise and get my protein from eggs, soya & pulses. Pls advice if Keraglo EVA is a good addition? Thanks!

Hi,

If your health is good and nutrition is up to mark, there is no need to take additional tablets of vitamins. You are right excess vitamins might cause some side effects. So, stop to take cod liver oil cap and vitamin C.
If really you have hair fall, you may take Biotin daily for few months.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Three years ago I was diagnosed with a very small carcinoid tumor which was found accidentally near the end of my small intestine duriing a colonoscopy. Sugery was reccommended, but I passed. About three weeks ago I had a very bad cold, and a little sinus infection. After the cold got better I noticed a dull aching pain on my right side under my ribcage. I had a ct scan a couple of days ago and the radiologist said they saw some spots on my liver. I am a 60 year old black female. I have no carcinoid syndrome symptons, in general good health, and feels good most of the time. I am on a very low dose of Lotrel for high blood pressure, and 50,000 mg of Vitamine D. I supplement with garlic with parsley seed oil gel caps for my hot flashes (menopause). Over the last couple of years I started to develope small bumps (boils) around my genitile area that would develop one after the other and get really sore and then errupt and heal. I seem to have solved that problem with daily doses of 1000 mg of vitamine C and alcohol rubs. Could all of these issues be related? Right now I am mostly concerned with the spots on my liver. I am due to see an oncologist later this month. Any idea as to what I can expect?

Hi, I am 29 professional. I started losing my hairs like never before. I thought it may be because of change in water(hard to soft) and the polution at first, but its not stopping even till today. Its been 3 months now and my hairs are getting thin day by day. Is it normal to have hair fall? Someone suggested me to use Bitozed(Biotin+zinc), but not sure it will work for me. or Will it have any side effect after use? Please advise the best solution for my age and condition.
