There are quite a few Alpha Base products. My primary concern is the amount of vitamin D3 and iron in that package. Please look at the ingredient list and let me know how many IU of vitamin D3 and milligrams of iron were ingested.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
1,000 iu d3 no iron

Thank you. Tia might experience transient gastrointestinal distress from ingesting such an unusual food but wasn't intoxicated. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner.
