Hairfinity vitamins: risks of toxicity

I showed recently that some vitamins in Hairfinity have percent daily values higher than 100%.

- Vitamin A; 163%
- Vitamin C: 167%
- Vitamin B1: 294%
- Vitamin B-2: 333%
- Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic Acid)= 1000%
- Vitamin B-6: 250%
- Vitamin B-12: 333%
- Biotin: 833%

What will be the consequences on the body?

The vitamins B (B-1, B-2; B-5; B-6; B-12; Biotin) are are water-soluble,
that are relatively non-toxic. The body will excrete the substance before harmful levels are reached.

Vitamins C: Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and like the B-complex vitamins, it cannot be stored in the body for a long period of time. If you take too much then your body will simply gets rid of the excess.

Vitamins A: Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. That means it gets stored in your body (mostly in your liver), then taking too much Vitamin A is something to be careful of. Vitamin A overdose can be harmful to bones and skin, causing weakness and brittleness, even leading to fatigue and vomiting. In general, acute toxicity occurs at doses of 25,000 IU/kg of body weight, with chronic toxicity occurring at 4,000 IU/kg of body weight daily for 6–15 months. Hairfinity contains only 8150 IU, then it's safe.

In conclusion: Even if Hairfinity vitamins contain vitamins that exceed the percent daily value, we see that except the vitamin A, they are water-soluble vitamins, the excess can be easily eliminated in urine. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin, but the percent daily value in Hairfinity is safe.
