What Happens If You Eat Too Many Gummy Vitamins?

You've probably been tempted to overdose on those sweet, squishy nutritional candies. A doctor tells BuzzFeed what'll *really* happen if you wolf more than you should.

FACT: Gummy vitamins are delicious.

THE PROBLEM: You're only, in most cases, supposed to take two per day.

So what happens if instead of two, you eat three or SIX OR 40???

Eating too many gummy vites can cause permanent health damage, according to Dr. Ken Spaeth, director of occupational and environmental medicine at the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System.

"On the whole, it would be a very bad idea and potentially dangerous to take excessive amounts of multivitamins, even tasty ones such as the gummy variety," Spaeth said. "While the recommended amounts pose virtually no risk, consuming an entire bottle of vitamins can cause permanent and serious harm."

Wait, PERMANENT harm?

If you ate the entire bottle, you could maybe die!

Also, vitamin overdose is a special risk for children.

So you should probably stop eating more than the recommended dosage of your gummy vites.
