Post How much Beta Carotene Vit. A is too much?

I have 10,000 IU in my multivitamin and my acupuncturist recommended I try adding a supplement of vit A as well, as it helps promote skin health.

So I have the 10,000 IU from my multivitamin and now also 25,000 IU from the Beta Carotene Supplement.

So thats 35,000 IU Beta Carotene Vit A daily. Is this okay?

Thanks .

Yes. According to what I've read, you can take as much Beta Carotene as you want with no ill effects (unlike pure Vitamin A, which can cause problems). The only thing with taking a lot of B.C. is that it can cause you to get orange colored skin (no joke).
