Hi there ...

Consumption of Vitamin A in the absence of deficiency leads to Hypervitaminosis , which can manifest as acute and chronic body problems , so it would be ideal that he may not consume such a dose of Vitamin A , specially along with dairy products which further enhances absorption of Vitamin A .

Regards .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
