Why do you recommend taking a "vitamin supplement holiday"
periodically? After all, we continue to take in vitamins daily
from our food without apparent harm?
We ingest quite a variety of vitamins and minerals
through our diet, often in small, well balanced proportions. Many multivitamin
supplements have high
amounts of certain vitamins and minerals and not necessarily in the same balance the body
is used to through foods. Hence, to be cautious, I find a reasonable approach is to take
breaks. Other doctors or scientists certainly have different opinions.
Calcium how much do you need?
High dosages, such as 800 to 1,500 mg were recommended by
doctors for many decades to women with osteoporosis, but it is
possible that high amounts could lead to damage to blood vessels
or increase the risk for heart attack. Limit daily intake from
supplements to no more than 400 to 600 mg a day.

Would it be of benefit to open capsules and crush all tablets to maximize absorption of supplements or
is this overkill?
As a general rule this is not necessary but each capsule or tablet
from different manufacturers is different and each person has a
different absorption ability. Some people take several supplements or
combinations that are excessive, or high dosages may interact negatively
with certain prescription medications they are taking, so even if a
little less is absorbed by not opening certain capsules or crushing
certain tablets, perhaps the resulting potential lesser absorption is
Overall though, for practical purposes, it is not necessary to open
capsules or crush tablets unless the
supplement is required in high dosages to treat a particular medical
condition and the patient has difficulty with stomach acid production or
has a history of intestinal malabsorption.
