Re: too much amino acids?

I found good advise at a certain dietician website.
It said to take you body weight, divide by 2.2 and then multiply by 1.2 to get your daily protein intake (needed).

So for me, I am 159/ 2.2 x 1.2 = 86 grams of protein.

Perhaps this is wrong but I found it off a dietician website. Anyways, I am currently taking a portein shake, a multivitamin, ginseng, and eat 2 protein bars a day (on top of regular meals). I just worry about an overdose on certain things, amino acids, vitamins, etc.. I wish I could find a website that listend the maximum daily intake of any of these.
