Amount of supplements safety


#1

Hello everybody,

I’m planning to take a DIY with only whey protein, oat flour, maltodextrin and canola oil.

I have a multivitamin here with the following per pill:

vitamin a (retinol acetate)-------------600 mcg
vitamin d (cholecalciferol)---------------5 mcg
vitamin c (l-ascorbic acid)--------------45 mg
vitamin e (acetate d’alpha tocopherol)—10 mg
tiamina (thiamine nitrate)--------------1,2 mg
riboflavin------------------------------1,3 mg
niacin (nicotinamide)--------------------16 mg
vitamin b6 (pyridoxine chloride)--------1,3 mg
folate----------------------------------240 mcg
vitamin b12 (cyanocobalamin)------------2,4 mcg
biotin (d-biotin)------------------------30 mcg
pantothenic acid (calcium d-pantothenate)-5 mg
vitamin k (phytonadione)-----------------65 mcg
iron (iron pyrophosphate)----------------14 mg
iodine (potassium iodide)---------------130 mcg
zinc (Zinc oxide)-------------------------7 mg
molybdenum (sodium molybdate)------------45 mcg
copper (copper oxide)-------------------900 mcg
selenium (sodium selenite)---------------34 mcg
chromium (chromium oxide)----------------35 mcg
manganese (manganese sulfate)-----------2,3 mg

I’m thinking about taking 2 pills per day. My question is, is it safe to take 2 pills of this multivitamin?

Of course, I will add the other essential nutrients that are not in the multivitamin, like potassium, choline, sodium etc

Can you post a link to your recipe? It would be helpful in determining how close you are to the upper limits of the vitamins and minerals.

I’m still adjusting the recipe, but it’s going to be basically this for one day:

Oat flour 150 g

Maltodextrin 108 g

Whey protein 80% 51 g

Canola oil 60 g

Light salt 9 g

Light salt contain 267mg of potassium per gram, 191mg of sodium per gram and 25mcg of iodine per gram.

I will probably have to increase the amount of oat flour because I think I don’t have enough magnesium. And I’m thinking about decreasing the amount of maltodextrin.

Edit: 9 grams of light salt
