I checked some statistics on the safety threshhold of these vitamins (the level where there have been no reputable reported cases of harm) and the amounts I have are significantly below). Is taking a lot of certain vitamins in proportion to others bad (would that cause an imbalance)? Also, should I alter any of the amounts? How often should I take them
